Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer consultations or cake tastings?
Yes, of course! We encourage you to contact us to setup a personalized consultation, during which we will provide cake tasting. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss design options that are best fit for you and your budget. Consultations are $25 and are only available for wedding cakes. If you wish to book with The Sweetest Thing Cakes, the $25 will be credited towards the order. Consultations are 1 hour in length, and we are able to accommodate up to 3 persons. Please bring along with you pictures of cake/dessert designs you like, bridal outfit details, decor ideas, invitations, etc. to be use as inspiration for the cake.
When should we book our cake?
It is recommended to book your wedding cake 6 - 8 months prior to your wedding date. It is never too early to book your wedding cake, especially if the wedding is during peak months, from April to September. For custom cakes, a two week notice is required in most cases. During peak months, it's recommended to book 3-4 weeks in advance to ensure the date is available.
How much cake do we need?
If you have a large variety of desserts, it is recommended to serve 50-60% of your total guest count. If you will be having few or no, then it’s recommended to get 70-80% of your total guest count. Keep in mind that everyone may not has cake.
How much do your cakes cost?
Cost varies depending on the complexity of the design, cake shape and size. Please contact us to get a quote for a design you have in mind. Alternatively, you may schedule a consultation during which we can further discuss design and pricing details. Starting prices for cakes is available on the pricing page.
Do you have cake stands for rental?
Cake stands may be rented for a fee depending on the specific stand and size. A refundable security deposit is required to ensure the stand is returned in the original condition within 3 days after the event. In the event of a damage, or missed return, the security deposit will be forfeited and additional charges may apply to cover the costs of a new stand.
Do you provide delivery and setup?
Yes, we encourage you to allow us to deliver and setup for wedding cakes and larger custom cakes to ensure safe transportation. Delivery and setup for wedding and large celebration cakes starts at $40 locally.
Are your cakes nut/gluten/dairy/egg free?
