I'm so excited about all the questions I have been getting about my cakes. Thank you for your interest! Here are some basic answers to the most frequently asked questions I've been getting - and please feel free to ask MORE!
Every cake I make is unique so all special requests will be considered. Here is a list of my current offerings:
What flavors of cake do you make?
Every cake I make is Custom - so you choose what you like best! Here are some standard flavors to get your mouth watering but I can do almost any request!
Chocolate (dutch or German)
What fillings can I choose from?
Every layered cake begins with Buttercream frosting - which can also be flavored to compliment your cake) Some examples of that would be:
Butter-cream (Vanilla, Chocolate, Lemon, Almond or Coconut)
I also usually use a Secondary filling for my layered cakes. The most common of these would be:
Fresh berries (extra charge)
What will you frost my cake with?
Every cake gets a base layer of Buttercream icing. That is either topped with more buttercream or a combination of buttercream and Fondant. MOST of my cakes are finished in Fondant. I may also use candies, modelling chocolate or specialty gumpaste to complete your designed cake. (Extra charges may occur)
Here I want to make a note that I MAKE MY OWN FONDANT - it is not cardboard-y or tasteless. It is a sweet, soft and mellow homemade confection! Almost everyone who has tried my fondant has exclaimed that they have never had a fondant they liked until mine!!
My cakes are Very Reasonably priced for custom cake design!
I start with a base price to cover my expenses and then use a calculation based on how many people the cake needs to feed and the degree of difficulty (i.e. how many hours spent decorating). I know you all want a BALLPARK figure - so . . . The BEST information I can give you is that you can expect to pay at least:
$40-70 for a small cake that will feed less than 15 people
$60-140 for a small party or occasion cake the will feed more than 15 people
$100 and UP for wedding cakes, cakes that need to feed a big group of people (more than 20) and large party and occasion cakes.
I give an EXACT quote for each and every cake!
