ORDERING A CAKE
To give each cake the attention it deserves, I work on only one to two cakes per day and recommend that you reserve your date as soon as is possible. For customized orders (not available for order in our online shop), a 50% non-refundable deposit is required to fully secure your date. This is non-refundable or transferable. The remaining balance is due 28 days before your event. If your order is placed less than 28 days prior to your event, full payment is due at the time of order.
I will consult with you via email, drawing on this as inspiration to design your bespoke cake. Wedding consultations are conducted virtually via Zoom and typically last 15 - 20 minutes. During your consultation, we will go over your event details and discuss cake designs.
As a one-woman business, I have found it best to consult with you regarding design details via email. This policy allows me to meet the needs of all clients and gives me sufficient time in our design studio and kitchen to create beautiful cakes!
We understand that some people want to taste our flavors before committing to a large order or simply want to participate in the great tradition of having a cake tasting to break up the wedding planning journey. For cake tastings, we offer a tasting box with five cake flavors that you can order for pickup. Cake tasting boxes are available once a month, typically on the first Saturday of each month. We do not offer in-person tastings.
Once you have finalized design details, I will provide you with a quote. Quotes are valid for 28 days and are secured by receipt of deposit. When you are happy to proceed, I will complete your order form and send you a copy along with terms and conditions. I will also forward an invoice detailing the total cost minus any deposit paid. Payment is accepted by debit or credit card, Venmo, or Zelle Quick Pay. The balance of your order becomes due 28 days prior to your event.
The Big Day!
Many clients opt for delivery service to their event venue. You may also collect your cake from our cake studio in Fairfax, Virginia. For more information on pick-up and delivery, please see our FAQs.
