That delivery and set up fee includes delivery to your venue site, constructing your cake, and placing flowers/cake knives/table decorations (supplied by couple).
Do you allow pick up instead of delivery?
We just recently started offering pick up on special event cakes (other than weddings). Many clients have inquired about picking up one of our cakes to take out of town or state for a special event. Depending on the complexity and design of your cake, this may be a possibility. Please inquire. You will be required to sign a waiver that you are responsible for the cake during travel. All wedding cakes will be delivered and set up by us.
What is a kitchen cake?
You will also have the option of adding kitchen cakes to any main wedding cake over 100 servings. Kitchen cakes are double layer sheet cakes that when cut and plated will look just like your main wedding cake. They are filled and frosted with a simple border. They are not meant for display, they simply are put in the venue's kitchen until they are cut and served. Kitchen cakes are $2.00 per serving.
Do you do cakes other than wedding?
Our main focus has been primarily wedding cakes. We enjoy getting to meet our couples, design a cake around their interests and finally create it for their special day. While wedding cakes are our main focus, if we have a date available, we may be able to accomodate other types of cakes. Our minimum servings do apply to any cakes that we book.
When should I book my wedding cake?
This mostly depends on the time of year you are getting married. If you are getting married during the months of May thru October, you may need to book earlier than November-April weddings. Typically most couples book their cake with us between 6 months to a year before their date (again, depending on the month of the wedding).
How many cakes do you take on a weekend?
The number of cakes we create each week depends on the first cake booked. If the first cake booked for a weekend is large or requires extra time for the details, we may consider ourselves booked with only 1 cake. We never compromise quality for quantity. We want each cake that we complete to be excellent as that is what each of our clients deserve. To check for availability just email : firstname.lastname@example.org or 1(517)366-1026.
Am I able to make an appointment to meet with you?
Absolutely! We hold tastings once a month where our couples are able to meet with us, discuss plans, look through idea books, look through our portfolios, see sample cakes and of course...try some different flavors. It's a great time to go over ideas and plans for creating the perfect cake for you. We am also available for consultations on days other than our scheduled tastings to help fit in your schedule. Our studio is open by appointment only, so please inquire about an appointment time before arriving.
What is the best way to reach you?
Truthfully, the quickest way to contact us is by email. It also allows both of us to keep the correspondence for future use while working together. When we are working on a cake or out of our studio, we set our phone to go directly to voicemail. Our computers are often on during both day and evening hours even when we are not in our office, allowing us the opportunity to respond quicker.
