First and Foremost
Your wedding cake is one of the most important details on your big day. It never goes unnoticed by your guests and becomes one of the main attractions of the night. Its imperative to highlight how important the design has become. Finding the right cake for your wedding is one of the most challenging moments throughout the planning process, this is why we want to give you some valuable information to make the right decision.
Are you a simple round, buttercream cake couple, or more of the sleek, fondant-covered cake types? Maybe you like custom cakes, unusual wedding cakes, 3 tier wedding cake or even black and white wedding cakes. How about cost, what do wedding cakes even fetch for these days? Can I get a cake off-the-shelf or should I get a completely custom cake? You’re probably starting to see that when it comes to wedding cakes, there are lots of things to consider.
Most Common Questions
When should I book my wedding Cake?
We highly recommend to book your wedding cake 3 to 6 months in advance, but we have some flexibility depending on our schedule and seasonality.
Can I Hold the Date?
You can reserve your wedding date with a 25% non refundable deposit which is applied toward the cost of your wedding cake. If you don't know the cost of your cake yet, you can still reserve the date with a $100 deposit. Wedding cakes are required to be paid in full 30 days prior to delivery
Do you Deliver?
Yes, our store is located in the heart of Sarasota (Florida) but we go as far as Naples going South, and Tampa going North. Delivery fees vary according to distance.
Do you charge for tastings?
We do. There is a $35.00 tasting fee which is applied toward your final order. We do not keep any inventory (We do not have a retail operation) everything we do is custom made and baked to order. More than charging for tasting we just want to confirm the appointment. Couples choose the flavors they want to try from our menu.
Do you offer items for people with dietary restrictions?
Yes, we have gluten and dairy free options. We also offer Vegan which is limited in flavors and for a wedding we usually do these as a side cake or cupcake.
I Don't see any prices. How Much do your cake cost
It’s extremely hard to offer a hard-and-fast price list, since each cake incorporates so many variables. We take into account the number of servings, the complexity of diverse design elements, and particulars important to the celebrants. Sometimes a smaller cake may take longer to create than a larger one, and therefore, it will be priced higher per slice (the basis for pricing used by most bakeries). We always try to work with every budget and present several possible variations and propose a few price tiers from which to select.
