Do you offer tastings?
Custom cake tastings are available for wedding cakes, and are dependent on availability. In order to offer our clients the highest quality of service, we do NOT offer tastings on event days, or during the busy months of wedding season (typically April-November). There is a $20 fee for the first two guests, and $5 for each additional guest. As the Pastry Bar is quite small, it is asked that you please limit your party to no more than four people. If you would like to sample other desserts, they can be purchased from the selection available in the pastry case during regular hours. Custom tastings for dessert buffets are available only after your date has been reserved on our calendar.
Can you give me a general idea of cost?
Cost is based on the menu you choose, your guest count, and whether or not you will need delivery, setup/styling, and/or rentals. Please fill out the event inquiry form, and we will contact you: click here for weddings & large events, or here for celebration cakes & cupcakes.
I would like to reserve a date, but I don't know my guest count, and I haven't decided on a menu. What should I do?
All that is required to secure your wedding or event date on our calendar is a $100 non-refundable retainer fee (applied to your total event order). A deposit of 50% is collected once your menu is set. We book a maximum of two events per day depending on size.
How much are wedding cakes?
Prices for 6" photo cakes start at $65, and tiered cakes start at $6.75 per serving (buttercream frosting and filling) with a minimum charge of $175. Sheet cakes start at $4.50 per serving (these are not decorated for display, but are meant to be served by your caterer; they are also known as "kitchen cakes").
How many will my cake serve?
Servings vary based on the type of cake (wedding, celebration, or sheet) and the size of the slices. Download our handy dandy cake guide here for a general idea of servings.
Can you set up the buffet, or do you just provide delivery?
Delivery and setup are fee-based services that can be added on to your order together, or separately. Delivery for event orders runs $1.50/mile, one way from our kitchen ($30 minimum charge). We also offer an extensive selection of display items for rent. Please visit the Gallery to view a small selection of the pieces we offer.
How many desserts should we order per guest for a dessert buffet?
We typically recommend anywhere from one-and-a-half to three pieces per guest depending on your menu selections. There are lots of different factors that influence this, most importantly when dessert is served. And here's an inside tip: Your guests will likely eat more if you provide them with a plate to take to the buffet.
