Wedding Cake FAQs

When do I need to order my cake?
We recommend placing your order well in advance, if time permits. We suggest a six-month notice, especially for popular wedding months.

Do I need to make an appointment?
All orders are taken by appointment only. We offer daytime, Saturday morning appointments and a limited number of weeknight appointments. We can communicate via phone and email to accommodate out of town brides.

What about samples?
We offer several samples at your initial consultation. If you have a flavor you would like to try, please let us know.

How much do wedding cakes cost?
Buttercream icing and decor will cost less than fondant cakes. Keep in mind, the more difficult and time-consuming the design, the more you should expect to pay for a cake. If you are on a budget, let us know. We can guide you to designs that fit your budget.

How much cake do I need?
The general rule of thumb is enough cake for invited guests minus 20 percent.
How do I pick a design?
Before your consultation, we strongly urge you to browse books, magazines and the internet to get a feel for what you like. Bring photos with you so we can guide you in your decision.

What about colors? 
There are hundreds of shades of the· same color. If you want a close match to something, bring along a sample for us to compare.

Do you provide fresh flowers?
It is your responsibility to order fresh flowers from your florist. We are happy to talk with them regarding your cake. Or, we can do gum paste flowers for your cake. These handmade flowers are available for an additional charge.

Do you cut the cake?
We do not offer that service. However, most caterers will do so for an additional charge. If you ask a friend or family member, we can provide you with a guide on the proper way to cut a cake

Do you deliver?
We deliver three-tier cakes and larger. Cakes in Alton/Godfrey are delivered at no charge. Delivery fees to other areas are based on location. We will contact you the week of your wedding to schedule a delivery time. To ensure things run smoothly, please contact your hall and let them know when we are arriving so the table is ready and the doors are unlocked.
