TASTING, DESIGN & ORDERING PROCESS

 

PRE-DESIGNED CAKES

(Classic Cakes)

 

Timing - We prefer to work with as much lead time as possible. One to three months is optimal, but we can sometimes accommodate rush orders (i.e. cakes booked less than 7 days before they are due to be delivered). We charge $150 extra for rush orders. 

Tastings - Clients who are planning to order a pre-designed cake from our Classic Cakes range can choose to order a take-home tasting pack from us. Tasting packs must be ordered with 5 business days' notice, and are picked up from our cake studio in lower Queen Anne. Availability is dependent on our schedule. The cost is $35 for three cake flavors of your choice from our menu, or $50 for four ($20 extra for gluten-free/vegan/ allergy-friendly tastings). PLEASE NOTE: We reserve in-person tastings for clients ordering custom-designed cakes only.

Pricing - All of our Classic Cakes are priced at $8.50/serving. The minimum order is $275 (i.e. 32-33 servings). Please inquire for more information.

Delivery - We offer delivery and setup of Classic Cake orders of $400 and up, within 30 miles of Seattle. For orders of $400 or less, pickup is available from our cake studio in lower Queen Anne. There is an $80 delivery fee to most venues within Seattle city limits (add $20 for dessert bar setup). For venues outside the city, the delivery fee is based on mileage from our studio. 

 

CUSTOM-DESIGNED CAKES

(Fully customized creations for weddings, birthdays, etc)

 

Timing - Ideally, we start the process of designing a custom cake six to nine months before your event. We can work with less lead time than this, depending on our availability, so please do send us an inquiry.

Design Process - First, we want to hear more about what you're planning: the type of event, whether you have a theme or color palette in mind, and any ideas or inspiration you have for the cake design. The vision for your cake can be established via phone or email, or you may prefer to come in for a personal consultation (if we have enough lead time). 

Flavors - We offer a full menu of cake and filling choices. We will gladly offer suggestions for flavor pairings that would suit your crowd.

Tastings - We offer tastings by appointment only, Tuesdays through Fridays. Occasional weekend appointments are available in the off-peak season, depending on our cake delivery schedule. Tastings are held in our Lower Queen Anne studio. The cost is $35 for three cake flavors of your choice, or $50 for four ($20 extra for gluten-free/vegan/ allergy-friendly tastings). You'll be able to browse our portfolios and find inspiration for your cake. We'll use the appointment to explore the possibilities and create some digital sketches. (Feel free to bring along images, style boards, swatches of your colors, mockups of your paper goods, and anything else that may inspire a beautiful and personalized cake for your event.)

Pricing - Your cake is priced on the basis of how many people it needs to serve, and on how intricate the design is. Our pricing for any custom-designed cake starts at $10 per serving, and certain minimums apply. 

Delivery - We offer delivery and setup of our custom cakes within 50 miles of Seattle. There is an $80 delivery fee to most venues within Seattle city limits (add $20 for dessert bar setup). For venues outside the city, the delivery fee is based on mileage from our studio.
