The cake ordering process starts with you requesting a price quote. Simply select Request A Quote from the menu, and then fill out the form with your event details and creative cake thoughts. The more info you can provide, the better we can price your cake. We will of course help you in the creative process to come up with a cake you will love.
Once we've received your information, we will email you within two business days with a quote (if you are unsure about a few details this process may take longer). If you confirm you would like to move forward with the order, an invoice with your order details and payment information will be sent.
A 35% non-refundable deposit will be required to secure your date. Once this is done, a cake sketch will then be provided. This will give you the opportunity to make any changes to the design. Once you have approved a design, you will be provided with a final contract/pricing for your order.
Final payment for your order will be due no later than 2 weeks before your delivery/collection date for celebration cakes/cupcakes, and 4 weeks prior to delivery for wedding cakes. Please see the Policies and FAQ pages for more information.
*Please note that quotes are only valid for a period of 72 hrs, after this time other orders may have been confirmed and the quote may need to be reviewed.
