Where are you located?
We are a private, fully insured home based cake studio in Parkville, MO
When should I provide you with a mood board or cake inspiration photos?
Either upon initial inquiry or shortly thereafter.
Do you offer custom birthday or other occasion cakes?
Wedding cakes are my main focus but I do plan to add some options for smaller occasions in the future.
I just got engaged. When should I think about my wedding cake order?
We are a small operation and make a limited number of cakes each year. My calendar fills up quickly. Please inquire as soon as you have a date set and a venue selected. For Peak wedding dates I suggest you reach out to me 12-15 months ahead of time. For non-peak dates, 6-9 months ahead of time.
Delivery: How will my wedding cake get to the venue?
We use an extremely sturdy and completely enclosed plastic delivery box system called a CakeSafe. It ensures safe delivery from our cake studio to your venue. Delivery and set up starts at $60.
How do I know how much cake I will need?
With my past experience with weddings, approximately 80% of invited guests will attend. That being said, I would be careful not to underestimate how much cake you will need. The industry standard size piece of wedding cake, used by the caterers and venues who will be cutting your cake, is 1”wide x 2”deep x 4”tall. That may look different to each cake cutter and in the instance that you have a “generous” cake cutter, you may want to estimate a little higher than the 80% recommendation.
How many cake flavors can I choose for my wedding cake?
I recommend 2-3 flavors but you are welcome to have more, depending on the size of your wedding cake. Fewer flavors make it less confusing for the cake cutter and easier on your guests to make a decision. I do not charge more for the number of flavor choices.
Who will be cutting the cake at my reception?
Most of the time your caterer or venue will cut your cake. You will need to inquire about their fee to do so. We will provide a cake cutting guide upon the delivery of your cake. This guide is available earlier than delivery upon request. We do not provide cake cutting services.
