Where are you located?
Our location is in Dilworth at 2400 Park Rd in the Courtyard Shopping Plaza. We are located near Toast of Dilworth, J Majors Bridal, and Tuesday Morning.
What are your store hours?
Since we no longer offer daily desserts and only do custom orders, we currently only go by appointment. We are happy to schedule a cake tasting for your wedding cake, just give us a call at 704-654-0598.
Do you have a minimum order on special occasion cakes?
Yes. We require a minimum of $250 on all custom orders.
Do you offer cake tasting for party cakes?
We do not offer tastings for any cake that would serve less than 50 guests. We do offer tastings for sculpted cakes and custom cakes that do meet our minimum requirement of $250.
How far in advance should I order a cake?
We are often booked up many weeks ahead of time so the sooner the better to reserve your place on our calendar. For weddings we suggest a minimum of six months to one year.
We definitely attempt to accommodate last minute requests if our schedule allows. Please call or email to find out our availability for your particular date
Is there a charge for the consultation? How long can we expect to be there?
There is not a fee for wedding cake tastings.There is a $35 fee for dessert table tastings. This includes a wide range of our desserts and cake so bring your sweet tooth! An hour is set-aside for each client, which has proven to be ample time to both design and taste of our cakes. Often, appointments are scheduled before and after yours so please plan to be on time so we have a full hour.
Please keep in mind that cake samples are prepared specifically for your appointment. We ask for the courtesy of 48 hours notice if your appointment needs to be rescheduled.
When do you offer tastings?
We offer tastings Tuesday through Thursday from 10am-3pm and Saturday mornings from 10am-1pm. Our Saturday appointments typically book up 3 weeks in advance.
What do I need to bring to our appointment?
It is helpful to have made venue, color and floral decisions prior to our meeting so we have that information available. Additionally, any element from your event that you feel we can draw inspiration from is great to bring as well. Pictures of your dress, venue, your invitations or design motif… a monogram, color swatches… a piece of wrapping paper that catches your eye… it can all be helpful.
That being said you may also just bring yourselves! Our portfolio has hundreds of cakes for you to browse through and we have endless ideas. The design process is definitely a collaborative effort and we’ll keep going until you have a design you love.
How much does a wedding cake cost? Do you have a price list?
We do not have a general price list because each cake is one-of-a-kind. Most custom cakes are priced per person; smaller orders (typically, anything under 75 servings) are priced per project.
Pricing starts at $6 per serving. Our pricing tends to average from $6-$9 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 and are priced at $3.50 per serving.
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.
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 $250 deposit. Final arrangements just need to be made at least 6 weeks prior to your event.
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 necessary?
Yes, you will need to make a 50 percent deposit to reserve your wedding date on our calendar. We will base your deposit on the total estimated amount at the time of the deposit.
Do you have cake stands available for rent?
Yes!, our cake stands are definitely available for rent. They range from $15 – $45 per stand. Because of the amount of cakes we do per weekend we can't possibly pick them up. We do need them returned within 3 business days. We do keep a credit card on file to secure a rental order and to ensure that they will be returned to us in original condition.
What is your delivery area? What do you charge for delivery?
We are willing to travel anywhere our cakes can safely be delivered so please contact us to inquire about a specific location.
Delivery and set up fees are additional and are calculated at an hourly rate – round-trip.
Do you make sugar free or vegan cakes? Do you use organic ingredients?
We currently do not make sugar free or vegan cakes.
All of our ingredients are of the highest quality, which is one of the reasons, our pricing tends to be just a bit higher than our competitors. We truly believe that ingredients really do make all the difference and are committed to using only the finest products available.
We are told consistently by clients who have made it a priority to meet with every local baker imaginable, that our cakes are not only beautiful but taste the best around. Come taste for yourself…
