Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How many people will my cake feed?
A: The short answer is it depends on how big you cut your cake pieces!
Traditionally, a "wedding" serving is 1"x 1", whereas a "party" serving is 1"x 2".
Here is a standard chart for cake servings:
Q: What is a double-barrel cake?
A: It's a tiered cake, where the tiers are the same diameter. These are my favorite to make, because they are perfect for decorating! The "canvas" of the cake is larger than multi-sized tiers.
Q: Why are your cakes so much more expensive than an in-store bakery?
A: Most bakeries use standard large batch cake mixes, and pre-mixed frostings that come in big containers. I scratch make all my baked goods with recipes I have tested and tweaked to make them the very best that I can. I use real butter, fresh cream, fresh fruits (when available). Also, my cakes are all different! Even if I were to try to duplicate a cake, there would be small differences. (Like any piece of art!)
Q: Why is your cake different than the "inspiration" picture I gave you?
A: I honor other cake artists, and purposely do NOT replicate their design. However, I can easily incorporate the basic elements that inspire you.
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: 5 or more days notice: 100% refund on all partially or fully paid orders
3-4 days notice: 50% refund or 100% in-store credit
2 days notice: 50% refund
1 day or less: no refund available
