How far advance do you book for weddings and other large special events?
Weddings can be booked up to a year in advance! We usually recommend booking at least 4-6 months before weddings, as the wedding season typically books up very quickly and we can only take so many events each weekend. For custom cakes for special events, 2 months is always a good amount of time, although it you have a last minute request we will definitely try to make it work! For 1-tiered signature cakes, 2 weeks is the typical time requirement.
I just want a simple cake! How far in advance should I book my cake?
We typically require 2-3 weeks notice to book a simple signature cake. The earlier the better, but we will always try our best to accommodate last minute requests!
We love your cakes, but we don’t have a clue what we want for our wedding/special event cake. How should we prepare for our wedding consult?
Start by looking at ideas online – Pinterest and Instagram are some of my favourites – and save all the pictures that you really are drawn to. We can use this to see the styles that you like and help create your ideal wedding cake. We’ll get to know what shapes you like, what accents you’re drawn to, and colour palette ideas.
What would be the ideal size for my cake and desserts?
We typically suggest ordering enough servings for 60-70% of your guests, as not everyone will take a piece of cake. If you’re going with cupcakes or other goodies, you definitely want to have over 100%, as more people are inclined to grab a couple of cupcakes or one of each type of dessert.
