FAQ

Frequently Asked Cake Questions?

  1. When is a good time to call in an order for a cake?

    Please allow 2 weeks notice for all cake orders. However, If you need it in a shorter notice it will depend on what my schedule looks like when you call.


  2. How much do your cakes feed?

    I use the industry standards to determine the amount of servings per cake size which is from Wilton.

  3. What are your party cake prices?

    All party and wedding cakes I sell begin at these prices Buttercream covered cake began at $2.50 per serving and Fondant covered cake begin at $3.00 per serving(minimum of 20). The only difference in a wedding cake and a party cake is how big you cut the slices. So, As long as you have a really great person who knows how to cut the cake then you will have enough servings but my suggestion is to always go with a little more servings to be on the safe side.

  4. What do your 3-D cakes cost?

    Pricing beginning at $125 for a carved 3-D cake and then the cost will go up from there depending on the design, details, and difficulty. Sometimes our 3-D cakes will be made of Rice Krispie Treats if cake is not advisable for that creation and then a sheet cake will be needed to serve the guests.

  5. When is a good time to hold my Wedding Consultation?

    Typically you will want to book your wedding/groom's cake 6 months to a year in advance.

  6. Why have a Groom's Cake and a Wedding Cake?

    The Groom's cake is a southern tradition and many groom's are requesting a cake of their own which is typically a 3-D carved cake that reflects who they are from their profession to their favorite sports.

  7. How much do your wedding cakes cost?

    All party and wedding cakes I sell begin at these prices. Our buttercream covered wedding cakes begin at $2.50 per serving based on a simple design and then cost rises depending on the difficulty of the design and any added fondant or gum-paste decorations. Our Fondant covered cakes begin at $3.00 per serving and then go up from there depending on the difficulty of the design and if any added fondant or gumpaste decorations are used.
