FAQ

When Are You Available And How Will I Know?
Availability is based upon FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Your cake order will not be added to my calendar until a design and price is agreed upon and a deposit has been made. I will try to keep you informed as to what dates are available and what dates are taken. As said before, it is highly recommended that you contact me at least 2 weeks before your scheduled event. Please keep in mind that I am in-house baker, decorator and a one-person operation; therefore, I am limited in the number of cake orders I will be able to accept on any given day. PLEASE RESERVE YOUR DATE EARLY!!!
 
Do You Offer Anything Other Than Cakes?
Yes, I offer cake pops, cupcakes, cupcake cakes, cupcake bouquets, quick breads, mini cakes, cookies,cookie bouquets, miniature desserts, i.e., petit fours, tartlets and cheesecakes.
 
I also offer fruitcakes in two different sizes — 9″ loaf  (weigh approx. 2.5 lbs) or 10″ round (weigh approx 4.5-5 lbs).
 
What Are Sculpted -3D Cakes?
These cakes are sculpted and shaped into almost anything and stands upright. They can include anything from football helmets,  shoes, jewelry boxes, animals, automobiles, to buckets and bottles,  etc. They are mostly edible, with the exception of support structures  or keepsake items.
 
What Are Carved 2D Cakes?
These are cakes that are shaped into characters, animals, purses, or mostly anything and lie flat. Handpainted or edible designs can be placed on top or can be hand-cut from rolled fondant or modeling chocolate.
