When it comes to
personal occasion or special event cakes we prefer to have at least 2 weeks notice of an
order. There is flexibility depending on how busy the shop is. Please call for
availability. For a Wedding / Quinceañera cake it's suggested you be on our books 6 months
before your event. For Wedding / Quinceañera cakes and large catering orders we require a
$100.00 non-refundable deposit to reserve a date.
Please do not
email urgent orders. If you email
an order, don’t assume it can be filled unless you receive a confirmation
email or phone call. We are a small
shop and often get booked up, so please call ahead!
Personal Occasion/Special Event Pricing Information
Because the range
of what we do is so varied, an exact price list is impossible to publish.
When it comes to traditional cakes such as rounds, squares, or sheets,
there is an initial charge for the cake and an art charge added depending on the
amount of time involved. Decorated cakes begin at $250.
Wedding / Quinceañera
start with a base price per person which includes a standard, smooth buttercream
finish, appropriate borders, decorations, stacking and delivery. Anything added
beyond the standard finish, such as rolled fondant or handmade flowers, would
add to the base price. Because the design possibilities are endless, please call
us for an accurate quote on your particular design.
