How far in advance should I order a cake?
We are often booked weeks ahead of time so the sooner you reserve your place on our calendar, the better, we recommend at least one month ahead for regular orders but for wedding cakes or large orders we suggest at least 3 to 8 months in advance. We’d be happy to accommodate last minute orders if our schedule allows. But it is never too soon to book your order!!!
Do you have a storefront like a retail bakery?
We do not have a retail space, because all of our cakes are custom made to order we have nothing readily available for you to purchase same day.
Do I have to make an appointment?
You do not need to make an actual appointment to place an order. Simply call or email us with your event details and we will respond with pricing and design ideas. However if you wish to schedule a tasting, an appointment is required.
Is a deposit necessary to reserve my wedding/event date?
Yes, a 50% deposit is needed to reserve your order. All deposits are non-refundable. Final balances are due two weeks prior to event.
Do you make cupcakes & cake pops?
Cake Pops – $2 each. Chocolate, Vanilla, Lemon, Red Velvet. One flavor per dozen.
Decorated Cake pops – $2.50 each (monogrammed, floral, solid glitter, etc).
Cupcakes – $36/dozen. See our menu of flavors for cupcake and buttercream options. One flavor per dozen.
Cupcake toppers Priced per design.
Mini Cupcakes – $15/dozen. Chocolate, Vanilla, Lemon, Red Velvet. One flavor per dozen.
Minimum order is two dozen cupcakes/cakepops, unless supplementing a cake order in which case it is one dozen.
Do you offer tastings to potential clients?
Yes! You and a guest may sample up to 4 cakes & 6 filling options. We bake to order each cake tasting plate so we do need at least one week notice. Tastings are $50 and need to be paid for when you book the appointment. If you book a cake after your tasting you will receive a $25 credit towards your order.
Do you ship your cakes?
Unfortunately we cannot ship our cakes as they are too fragile. However we can ship our custom toppers and sugar flowers. Contact us if you are interested in purchasing these items to add to your own creations.
Where do you deliver and how much is it?
We are located in Wheaton, Illinois. We can deliver to most locations in the far western suburbs of Chicago. Delivery charges are based on location.
Can we pick up our order?
You may pick up your order. Please place your cake box on a flat surface in your car (i.e. back trunk) where your air conditioning may reach it. Do not put your cake on a slanted back seat or in your lap. To ensure a smooth delivery, please drive slow over pot holes/turns and do not slam on your brakes when driving. Though cake is not considered the most structurally sound material ever devised, with care your cakes will make it to your event in perfect condition.
Do you make anything else?
We can also create faux cakes for all media needs – print, film, tv, etc.
How much does a cake cost?
Each cake is uniquely created for you so we don’t have a general price list for our creations. Each cake is priced per slice depending on the intricacy of the design or sculpture and the time invested in its creation but generally range from $3 to $10 per slice and increase depending on detail. We can work with you to create a design that works for your budget.
Due to the custom care given to each cake, and the limited number of cakes we take per week, a minimum order of $150 is required.
