Base pricing starts at $5/serving for single cakes and $6/serving for tiered cakes.
I send personalized quotes to all my clients after gathering information from your inquiry form.
When will my cake be made?
All desserts are made from scratch using fresh ingredients and never frozen.
Your cake will be made 24-48hrs. before your event for optimal freshness!
Do you cover cakes with fondant?
No! While I do use fondant and gum paste for decorations, all my cakes are covered in delicious buttercream.
This improves the taste and I am still able to achieve that smooth finish for your design preferences.
Do I have to pick a cake design from your website?
No! I love creating custom designer cakes for your event. Tell me your style preferences, send me your
design boards, and let me create something special for you.
