WEDDINGS

 

Timing - Three to nine months before your wedding is ideal to start the process of working together. We’ve also worked with far less lead time than this, so please feel free to inquire.

Flavors - Before your tasting, you’ll be invited to look through our menu of cakes and fillings, to choose which flavors you'd like to sample at your tasting.

Tastings - For cake orders to serve 50+, we offer in-person tastings by appointment only. Appointments are held in our lower Queen Anne studio and the cost is $45 for three flavors (add $15 for additional flavors). Our in-person appointments take place on Mondays and Thursdays, between 12 noon and 6.30pm. Please note: Regrettably, we do not offer weekend consultations, as we are typically preoccupied with cake deliveries on those days. If you are unable to meet us on a Monday or Thursday, you might choose to order a “to go” tasting pack from us instead, to pick up from the bakery on a Saturday morning before we head out on deliveries.

You'll have an opportunity to sample the cake flavors that you've selected ahead of time, and take home the leftovers. We'll talk more about what you’re planning, look through pictures, and find inspiration for the cake design. Feel free to bring along images, style boards, and anything else that may inspire a beautiful centerpiece for your wedding. 

Pricing - Our cake pricing is based on the number of servings, and on how intricate the artwork will be. Pricing for custom cakes starts at $10 per serving, and minimums apply during our busier months.

We also offer a range of pre-designed buttercream cakes, for those with simple, modern tastes. View our pre-designed range of Classic Cakes here. Two-tiered cakes in this range start at $300, and three-tiered cakes begin at $540. A full price list for our pre-designed range can be found here.

Delivery - Our delivery fee within Seattle city limits is $80. For venues outside the city, the delivery fee is based on distance from our studio. Some cakes require more intricate setup/assembly on site, which may add to the delivery fee. We will discuss this with you during the design phase. Not all cakes can be delivered personally by us. Certain orders are pickup only (in which case, the cake would be carefully packaged by us, and we would provide thorough instructions for handling/transporting the cake). During peak wedding season (May through October), if your cake delivery requires ferry travel or your venue is more than 50 miles from our bakery, the minimum cake order is $1,500 -- excluding the delivery fee. 


OTHER OCCASIONS

Timing - Please allow as much lead time as possible; 1-3 months is ideal, but one full week is workable if your event date falls outside of wedding season.

Flavors - We offer a full menu of cake and filling choices. We can help you narrow down your choices, and will gladly offer suggestions for age-appropriate or seasonal flavor pairings.

Tastings - For orders of 50+ servings, we offer in-person cake tastings at our lower Queen Anne studio (Mondays and Thursdays). If your crowd is smaller than 50, we would be happy to prepare a “to go” tasting pack for you, with one week’s notice. The tasting fee is $45 for three flavors of your choice from our regular menu.

Design Process - The more you can tell us about the type of event you're planning, the better. Theme, color palette, ideas or inspiration for the cake design -- fill us in! We can chat over email or phone to establish the initial specifications for your cake, or you may prefer to come in for a personal consultation (if we have enough lead time, and if your cake serves more than 50 people).

Pricing - Cake pricing is based on the number of servings, and on how intricate the artwork is. Our pricing starts at $10 per serving, and minimum orders apply during our busier months. Please note: Sculpted (a.k.a. “carved” or “3-D” cakes) typically start at $15 per serving.

We also offer a range of pre-designed buttercream cakes, for those with simple, modern tastes. View our pre-designed range of Classic Cakes here. Two-tiered cakes in this range start at $300, and three-tiered cakes begin at $540. A full price list for our pre-designed range can be found here.

NOTE: If you need an even smaller cake at very short notice, i.e. a single-tiered cake with just a few days of lead time, then our Everyday Cakes range is perfect for you. Our Everyday Cakes start at $100, and sizes range from 8 servings up to 28.

Delivery - Our delivery fee within Seattle city limits is $80. For venues outside the city, the delivery fee is based on distance from our studio. Some cakes require more intricate setup/assembly on site, which may add to the delivery fee. We will discuss this with you during the design phase. Not all cakes can be delivered personally by us. Certain orders are pickup only (in which case, the cake would be carefully packaged by us, and we would provide thorough instructions for handling/transporting the cake).
