frequently asked QUESTIONS

Do you have a storefront?
No. We do not have a storefront space at this time. We operate out of our fully licensed, insured, and inspected by the Ohio Department of Agriculture kitchen.
How far in advance should I book?
Once you have confirmed your wedding venue get in it touch with with us to check our availability for your date. You should place your order as soon as possible. We work exclusively with one couple per week to create that extra special wedding cake experience, popular months book up quickly.   We only take a very limited amount of orders per weekend to give your cake our complete attention that it deserves. For wedding cakes, we recommend at least 6 months (3 minimum) to ensure that your date is available because many of our ingredients have to be specially ordered. However, don’t be afraid to reach out at any time because we may have had a cancellation and that could be your spot now!
What are the prices of your cakes?
Each cake we make is unique to our clients’ requests. We do have a minimum order requirement of  $600.00 (excl. delivery and setup) which typically is a simple 3-tiered wedding cake, which provides approximately 70 portions and is minimally decorated. Most of  our elegant wedding cakes displayed in our portfolio are between $9.50-$14.00+/serving. The final price of your custom cake will depend on size, flavors, the complexity of design, and handmade elements.  Our cakes are covered in fondant with a delicious ganache layer. We offer dessert tables as a lovely addition to your wedding cake order. Dessert tables are priced according to the individual items selected, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for more information on these. All wedding cake orders will require a 50% non-refundable retainer upon booking in order to secure your date. Until the non-refundable, 50% retainer is received, dates remain open to other orders which may pay their retainer first. Bookings are on a first-come, first-paid basis. Please be advised I accept a very limited amount of orders per weekend, so popular days get booked quickly. All wedding cake balances are due 30 days prior to your wedding date.
