Dear Bride to be…
Thank you for allowing me to participate in the planning of your wedding. You must make many decisions about flowers, photography, wedding and reception locations, catering, and your very special dress. All of this planning is done to build a special memory for the start of your new life.
A special design can be incorporated into your wedding cake. Your only limits are your imagination. Please feel free to let me know if you have something special you would like. Remember that you can change almost anything up to three weeks before the wedding. Please, no changes in size or design after the deadline.
Ingredient cost is nominal in your cake – but time is a major factor. Some cakes can be baked and decorated in one day, and others require weeks of preparation time. The more time involved in your special cake the more costly it will be.
Cutting the Cake
Wedding cake servings on a two layer cake are one inch wide and two inches long (see diagram) or two inches square on a one layer cake. I will try to make the serving of your cake as easy as possible. All cakes cannot be handled the same and I will be glad to advise you on your particular cake design. It takes two people to serve each cake ordered. You will need to make arrangements for your cake knife, servers and the cake plates.
Follow the numbers in numerical order for the best cutting guide. Have nearby a small tray with a cutting knife, one protective glove, and damp towel (for cleaning the knife as necessary).
Delivery is free within a 15 mile radius of our shop. If it is ouside our free delivery zone, the delivery fee will be calculated according to mileage.
Your florist will be able to help you choose the appropriate flowers and foliage for your cake. If you are using fresh flowers on your cake, the florist is responsible for the flowers and making sure that the flowers and foliage are safe to place on an edible cake.
A Date Deposit is required to hold the date for your wedding. The deposit is half down, the balance will then be due no later than 10 days before the event.
Wedding cake equipment (plateaus, mirror,etc) is very expensive so we require an equipment deposit. If you choose to rent one of our plateaus the rental fee is $50.00 (non-refundable) with a $100.00 refundable deposit. All mirrors require a $50.00 refundable deposit. We require a separate check to hold on file for the refundable deposits that we do not deposit unless the equipment is returned damaged or after the 10 day period. We can also hold a credit card on file for the refundable deposits which will work the same way as a check, it will not be charged unless for the reasons listed before.
After the wedding, please return, as soon as possible (or no later than 10 days after the event), all of the pieces used in the assembling of your cake (metal, plastic, fabric, Styrofoam, wood, etc.). A note will accompany the cake(s) upon delivery listing all equipment to be returned.
As our THANK YOU-At your reception area you will find a complimentary 6″ cake to take on your honeymoon. You can then enjoy more than the traditional one bite of cake you eat for your pictures. Have someone add other goodies (served at your reception) to this box.
Remove the top cake tier from the separator plate by slipping a knife between the separator plate and the cardboard under the cake. Place the cake in a box, wrap the box with several layers of plastic wrap and aluminum foil, and then place the whole thing in another plastic container. Keep in a DEEP freezer and when you are ready to eat your anniversary cake, remove the container from the freezer and let the cake thaw in the container with the aluminum and plastic still covering the box. Do not unwrap/open it until it is totally thawed (approx. 2-3 hours). When the cake has time to thaw completely, remove the cake from the container/box, unwrap and enjoy!
*Or, you may call me two weeks prior to your first anniversary and I will make a fresh 6” cake for $15.00
Cancellation Policy – If the wedding cakes are canceled less than 120 days before the scheduled wedding date, the Date Deposit will not be refunded.
(The Equipment deposit does not apply to the cost of the wedding cakes)
God Bless You and I will do my best to make your wedding cake a very special part of your wedding day memories.
Thank you and sweet wishes in your new life!
