HOW MUCH DOES A CUSTOM CAKE COST?

Each design is custom and are individually priced, starting at $150.00, based on basic cake design and flavor.

Custom sculpted cakes start at $300.

 

Every design is unique and different.  The final price of your custom cake with depend on flavors, complexity of your design and hand made elements, such as sugar flowers, details, size and complexity of structure.

WHEN SHOULD I ORDER MY CAKE?

**Please note that I only take a small number of cakes per week to give my full attention to each order**.

In order to make your custom cake, I require 4 weeks advanced notice. During the months of May-August, I require 6 weeks notice. Ordering early to hold your date is advised.  

Your paid 50% non-refundable retainer will hold your date. Dates will remain open to others until that retainer is paid. 


DO YOU DELIVER?

Yes - delivery is available for a predetermined fee outside of the Chesterfield area. Delivery is highly recommended for all tiered cakes. Please note that cakes are priced for client pickup*.

PAYMENT:


A non–refundable retainer of 50% of the estimated cake order, along with a signed contract is required for your date to be booked. Orders are taken on a first-come, first-paid basis. 

Until the non-refundable 50% retainer is received, dates remain open to other orders who may pay their retainer first.

Final payment is due two full weeks (14 calendar days) before the scheduled pickup date, otherwise the order may be cancelled and the non-refundable retainer forfeited.

WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?  


I accept cash and credit card via Square.  

 

SERVINGS:

Serving sizes are based on the industry standard 1"x 2"x 4" slice. My cakes are taller than industry standards, usually between 4.5-5" tall per tier. It is better to overestimate and have leftover cake than to underestimate or have a generous cake cutter and run out of cake. Popular cake sizes serve the following based on the standard guidelines listed above:

 6″ round=12 servings                                          8″ round=22 servings

10″round=38 servings                                         12″round=54 servings

 

WHAT TIME MAY I PICK UP MY CAKE?  


Pick up time will be determined at the time the order is placed.
