Frequently Asked Questions
**How much notice do you need for an order?
As much as possible, please! Three weeks is the bare minimum. Because I only do custom orders, every order must be planned for, and shopped for individually. Your cake is treated as if it is the most important cake I will ever make. If you need a cake within 3 weeks, please feel free to ask. Some orders may be filled last minute.
**Why are your prices higher than a grocery store?
You cannot get the same cake at Wal-Mart. That cake at Wal-Mart was made months ago, flash-frozen, and shipped to the store, where an employee working as quickly as he/she could frosted it with icing from a bucket, and maybe added some airbrushing or buttercream roses. That employee probably had 50 other cakes to complete in the same shift. I take extra care to research ideas, shop for the perfect ingredients and toppers, and make sure every detail is to your pleasing and specific for your event.
**Do you need a deposit?
Yes, I require a 50% non-refundable deposit due upon placing order to confirm your booking. Deposit is transferable if date changes and based on availability. Deposit can be made via cash, Paypal (credit/debit card), or Venmo. Remainder is due upon pickup or delivery.
**What's the best way to transport my cake?
We recommend that you place the cake on the floorboard of your car. Should you need to place it on a seat, it is best to roll a towel and place it near the back of the seat so cake is kept level. We are NOT Responsible for damages occurred during transport
**What forms of payment do you accept?
At this time, cash payment is preferred. We also like Venmo.
PayPal can accept payment via debit/credit card for deposits and final payment can be made in person or prior to pickup.
**What size cake should I order and expect for pricing?
The chart below gives a basic guideline for cake sizes. Cakes are usually doubled layered with icing or fruit fillings between for more servings. Custom Buttercream cakes start at $35 for basic details and Custom Fondant cakes start at $50. Since each order is custom and size varies, so does pricing and I love to help you find the best price fit for your event!
