Our Special Occasion Cakes start at $300. Each cake has many factors involved in determining the final price including the number of servings and the artwork time involved in creating the cake. From meetings to blueprints, baking to decorating, and paperwork to delivery our special occasion cakes involve a great deal of time and artistry. We will work with you to make a cake that you will love and can fit into your budget. Contact us with your ideas and let us know how we can help make your next special occasion more memorable.
If you would like to book us to make your cake, a 50% retainer is required to secure your date. This is non-refundable or transferable. The balance of your order is due 60 days before your event. We accept cash, credit cards and checks for payments. Your order is not placed until the retainer has been paid and both parties have signed a contract.
Our minimum order is $300. Our prices start at $4.25/per serving
We believe on the truly SPECIAL events you should splurge and get a delicious-show stopping cake. Price often speaks to the quality of ingredients, the workmanship of your baker and the time involved.
Cake pricing is complex, especially since every baker computes their work differently. We price by using a base per serving price that you can multiply by how many servings you need. This base price is for a standard, round, smooth, buttercream finished cake with appropriate borders. Once we know the design and size we can provide artwork charges to that base price. We charge a flat per hour fee for the extra artwork time and supplies.
Many factors including size, servings, extra cost for specialty flavors, design complexity, amount of sugar flowers, supplies, etc. can affect the final price of your cake. Most wedding cakes average 2 hours of additional artwork. Hobby cakes, like a football stadium, can take 40 hours to decorate, but that is extreme. 3-D sculpted cakes are the most expensive option in most cases due to the time involved, premium pound cake (.50/serving extra) that must be used and fondant or modeling chocolate (1.00/serving extra) that is often necessary. These cakes will start at $5.75/serving. If this doesn’t fit into your budget, we are happy to come up with other awesome options!
Our minimum for all orders is $300. Currently our per serving price for round cakes starts at $4.25/per person for a buttercream cake. Our artwork charge is $30/hour. Using these prices, a simple round wedding cake for 100 people (100 x $4.25) would be $425. If you add some handmade sugar lace (2 hours x $30) would add $60 to the $425 making the cake to $485. There would be no delivery or consultation charge for this example cake because it is 100 servings. We do charge Georgia State Sales Tax.
We enjoy eating cupcakes, cookies and other goodies, but we do not provide them. We would be happy to recommend one of our colleagues to you.
Please visit our menu page for a list of popular combinations. When you book a consultation, we will provide you with a full list of all our current flavor offerings. We use a luxurious French buttercream that is very silky and not overly sweet. It is a real crowd pleaser! For those who don’t normally like overly sweet icing made with shortening, you are going to love this buttercream! If you would like a flavor that is not listed, please ask. We will do our best to accommodate your requests. We do not offer cream cheese buttercream/icing. It is not a good choice for tiered cakes for many reasons and our goal is to never take any chances with your very special cake.

The groom’s cake grew out of an old Southern tradition that is very much in vogue again. These cakes are often playful and depict an interesting or amusing side of the fiancé’s personality. These cakes are typically half the size of the wedding cake. This cake can be the perfect counterpoint to the “main” cake. Keep in mind that on occasion the groom’s/hobby cake might end up being more complicated to execute than the main cake and can get quite expensive. We will do our very best to provide additional options, if needed, that will fit into your budget.
This cake is purely optional and nothing dictates that you have to provide one for your guests. Once your budget has been set you can decide if it’s a good fit for your special day. In most cases, you can even add a secondary cake closer to your wedding date when your budget is very clear.
We are closed on Sunday except when contracted to deliver a cake.
Cakes larger than 100 servings receive complimentary delivery to most locations in the Chattanooga and NW Georgia area. We include this service because we truly care about the condition and presentation of our cakes. Driving with a tiered cake is learned skill and we have many years of experience. Our cakes are delivered by the people that created them so if something were to happen, the right person is there to remedy the situation. We will deliver and set up your cake at a time suited for your event and what is best for your cake. Smaller cake deliveries will be charged according to mileage and complexity of set up. Customers may be able to pick up small cakes at their own risk.
Consultations & Tastings are by appointment only and are held in our commercial kitchen/studio at our home in Tunnel Hill, GA. We are fully licensed, inspected and insured. These meetings are complimentary for cakes serving over 100 guests. If you event is smaller, we will happily work with you over email or phone to design your cake. If you need a meeting for cakes smaller than 100 servings ($425 or less) we are happy to help! We charge $50 for the meeting and $10 per cake sample. This fee must be paid when scheduling your meeting.
Once we have both agreed on an appointment time, we will provide you with additional information to help both of us prepare for the meeting.
At our meeting, we will discuss design, colors, cake stands, delivery and other options. You will view some display cakes, see your proposed cake size, and taste your favorite flavors. The samples are quite large and usually provides enough for some to take home. Shortly after the meeting you will be provided a comprehensive quote/contract to review. We will hold your event date and guarantee prices for 10 days after your quote is given. If you are a very decisive client and don’t require a meeting for a larger cake, you will receive a discount. Just ask!

We take your allergies very seriously. Our facility contains nuts and gluten so we cannot guarantee goods can be free of these allergens. When we receive a request for a special dietary need, we will give you our honest answer as to what we can provide. We are trying new recipes regularly and will continue to look for the best products to fit all dietary needs. We suggest that you consider selecting a smaller cake that meets the special dietary needs and then order a larger cake with a more traditional recipe for the rest of your guests.
