Consultations reserved for Weddings, Large Events, Sculpted and High End Art style cakes.
For a basic cake order we welcome you to stop in during our normal business hours to discuss cakes
with our staff. If you wish to schedule a time to come in and sit with someone there is a $25 charge per hour to do so.
You will get three cake flavors to sample. Or you can stop in to chat and purchase a variety of cupcakes to sample with friends in your own home. It's a good way to have everyone involved.
Please bring in any photos and color samples for us to look at and use with your order.
We do not offer weekend appointments. Due to our wedding schedules and deliveries we do not have staffing to offer these times.
Our weddings and large events have priority and our full attention. Your cake will receive the same care on your date.
We do stay late, up to 8 pm, on Tues and Thursdays to work around work schedules
Our Consultations Times:
Mondays 3pm - 5pm (when available we are actually closed on Mondays but we do offer late afternoons)
Tues and Thurs - Late Nights - 11am - 8pm
Wed 11am - 4pm.
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.
If you wish to simply try our cake to see if we are a good fit, we welcome you to stop in our store were we have cupcakes out daily.
You can call ahead to place an order for a six pack of flavors to make sure you will get the flavors you are wanting.
Consultations - $25 - yellow, chocolate and white cake along with 3 specialty flavor choices.
Fillings: Strawberry, Raspberry, Lemon, Vanilla Cream and Chocoalte Mousse upon request.
If you book in with us within 30 days of the overview the $25 goes toward the final cake total.
After 30 days, if we are still available, we will require the full $100 deposit to book in.
If the date deposit of $100 is made at the time of sitting the fee is waved.
Consultations are set for 2 but there is plenty to share, please let us know how many to expect.
if you want additional plates they are $5 per 3 flavors.
We have a small 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.
The deposit enables us to reserve time for your cake creation and delivery.
Then when your schedule permits we will have the full hour consultation.
Deposits are non-refundable and cannot be used towards any other cake.
