How far in advance should I plan to order my wedding cake or wedding desserts?

Many publications suggest ordering a cake about 8 weeks in advance of your wedding date.  We disagree!  We book weddings on a first come, first serve basis, and we only take a certain number of weddings per weekend. We suggest booking a consultation appointment with us at least 6 months in advance.  Keep in mind our Saturday consultation appointments book up about 2-3 weeks in advance.

How do I make an appointment for a wedding tasting and consultation? 

Appointments are scheduled Tuesday through Saturday, between and 11:00AM and 2:00 PM.  Our Saturday appointments book up quickly, so please contact us at least 2-3 weeks in advance for a Saturday appointment.  We allow up to 4 guests and 1 hour for your appointment.   Appointments are taken no more than 12 months in advance of your wedding. Please visit our Wedding Consultation page for further details.

How much lead time is required for a custom order? 

We require at least 2 weeks’ notice for custom dessert orders and ideally one to two months notice for a custom cake, especially during our busy season –  April to October.

What do you require to book an order?

For custom orders, we require payment in full in order to book your order. For weddings, we require a non-refundable 50% deposit to book your date.  The balance will be due 14 days prior to your wedding or event along with any final order changes.  In some cases, changes cannot be accommodated, so please plan accordingly.

Do you have a minimum order requirement? 

Yes, we do.  Our minimum order requirement for wedding orders is $600.  Our minimum order requirement for custom cakes, cupcakes, and dessert orders is $150.
