how to order your custom cake

Custom event orders require seven days notice, although more lead time is highly suggested. During our peak seasons, we are often booked several weeks in advance. We recommend reaching out as soon as you start to plan your event so we can check our availability for you. We are a small team and place an emphasis on quality over quantity to keep our creative work at a high level.

8” serves 20 ; starts at $80.00+

2: BUTTERCREAM VS. FONDANT

Pick your cake and buttercream filling flavors from our menu. Next, decide on which style best suits your desired design - fondant covering or buttercream texture. Fondant cakes contain the exact same amount of buttercream as a “buttercream” cake, this style just has a very thin layer of fondant covering the cake. Fondant acts as a canvas for us to employ certain techniques not available to buttercream cakes - including stenciling, sculpting and hand painting. We’d be happy to steer you in the right direction if you are unsure which suits your style best.

Inspiration

In the meantime, gather ideas of which styles you’re attracted to - are you more of a naked cake or marbled fondant kind of couple? Fresh, sugar or no flowers? How do you feel about metallics? There are so many options when it comes to cake design, so forming some strong preferences will help steer us in the right direction.
