FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT WEDDING CAKES
Do you offer tastings? How many people can I bring with me?
Yes, we offer tastings! Please make a reservation for your tasting and consultation by calling at 703.942.5538 or through our online contact form. Complimentary tastings are offered for the Bride and Groom. Please inquire about bringing additional people with you to the tasting.
How long do tastings usually last?
Tastings usually last for about an hour, which has proven to be ample time to both design and taste our cakes. Since appointments are scheduled before and after yours please plan to be on time so you have a full hour. Since a lot of work goes into each tasting please call at least 48 hours in advance to cancel or reschedule. Deposit is non-refundable if appointment is not cancelled or rescheduled prior to 48 hours of your appointment time.
What do I need to bring to our appointment?
We request that you have your venue, flowers and colors set for your wedding. If not then no worries, we can always come up with a design and add colors once you have those details set. Also if there are any pictures of cakes that you like please bring those with you and we can design a unique custom made cake to fit perfectly in your wedding.
What Can I Expect To Pay For A Wedding Cake? Do you have a price list?
Pricing starts at $6.00 per serving for cakes covered in buttercream icing. Cakes covered in fondant begin at $7.00 per serving. Our pricing tends to average from $5.50-$10.00 per serving. Ultimately the price is based on the complexity of design and the number of people being served. Sheet cakes are available to supplement larger parties only if the cake out front serves at least 100 guests and are priced at $3.00 per serving. Sheet cakes are all 4 layers high with 3 layers of filling, so your guests never know that they are not being served from the actual wedding cake. Before you arrive for your consultation, it is helpful to have a budget in mind for what you would like to spend on your cake. This will give us a better sense of what we can design for you.
What is your delivery area? What do you charge for delivery?
Our delivery area ranges from Washington DC to Baltimore. We are willing to travel anywhere our cakes can safely be delivered so please contact us to inquire about a specific location. Our delivery and set up fees depend on the distance from our shop. Please call us for an estimate.
Do I have to make a deposit to reserve my wedding date? If so, how much is it and can I get a refund, if we cancel the date?
Yes, a 50% deposit is required to reserve your wedding date on our calendar. Your deposit is based on the total estimated amount at the time of the deposit. We ask that you be absolutely certain that you would like to work with us, as all deposits are date specific and non-refundable.
I am not ready to make design decisions yet but I want to reserve our date so you don’t get booked up, is that possible?
Yes. You may reserve your date with a $350 deposit. Final arrangements just need to be made at least 6 weeks prior to your event. All deposits are non-refundable.
Do you make wedding cupcakes and favors?
Yes. We do custom designed cupcakes and cupcake towers – please call about specific pricing. We make cake pops, mini cupcakes, brownies, blondies, lemon bars, coconut macaroons, Mexican wedding cookies and French Macarons.
I want fresh flowers on my cake, how can that be arranged?
