Consultations are for Weddings, Large Events, Sculpted and High End Art style cakes.
We do not offer full consultations for basic cakes. You are welcome to stop in during our normal business hours to discuss cakes with our staff and purchase a variety of cupcakes we have available daily. Please bring in any photos and color samples for us to look at and use with your order.
**WEEKEND Consultations starting Nov 1 - April 30th. These are worked in around our cake load and deliveries. We highly suggest getting a date hold in if you are sure you want to book with us. This way you are confirmed and can arrange a consultation date for a later time knowing your date is locked in.
Normal Consultations Times:
Mondays 3pm - 5pm (when available we are actually closed on Mondays but do offer late afternoons)
Tues and Thurs 11am - 8pm
Wed 10am - 3pm.
**We do not offer Friday or Saturday consultations on a normal basis. Weekends are very difficult with our cake loads, so we are limited on getting those scheduled in, but will make every effort to work you in around our schedule. Tuesday's and Thursday's are our later days to make it easier on you and your work schedule.
We do have sitting fees for our consultations. The fee is to assure you a full hour with Michelle to discuss your ideas and sample some of our flavors. This fee goes back into your final total, so if you do book with us...it's a free consultation. If you do not, it is considered a fee for our dedicated time with you.
Consultations - $25 - yellow, marble, chocolate and white cake along with 3 specialty flavor choices. Also our most popular fillings and creams.
If you put your date deposit down of $100 at the time of sitting the sitting fee is waved.
Consultations are set for 2 but there is plenty to share, so let us know how many to expect.; We have a small front meeting area so please keep that in mind (no more than 4 is recommended). Small Children are welcome but usually not recommended due to space.
We are often booked 6 months to a year in advance. If you are unable to schedule a consultation with us in the near future, but are sure you want us to create your cake, you may wish to consider making the Save-the-Date deposit of $100.00. This deposit is non-refundable. The deposit enables us to reserve time for your cake creation and delivery or pick-up to be determined. Then when your schedule permits we will have the full hour consultation.
