What if the number of my guests changes?
At the time of the final payment, 3 weeks before your wedding date, we will need your final head count. If it’s much higher than originally anticipated, we can happily provide sheet cakes for more servings.
When is delivery?
Usually 2 to 2 1/2 hours before the reception begins. The couple is responsible for ensuring that there is someone available at the time of the delivery and that a secure, stable, and level tableis ready. Note: we highly recommend letting us deliver the cake rather than pickup. Wedding cakes are delicate, and we cannot be held responsible for damages or temperature related changes to the cake after it leaves the shop.
What if my wedding is outdoors?
We recommend using a fondant cake for outdoor weddings, but do watch out for direct sunlight, leaves, wind, and insects! After setup, we cannot be held responsible for the effects of outdoor conditions.
How do I save my anniversary cake?
As soon as possible, you should place the cake in an air-tight container or securely wrap the box with several layers of plastic wrap before freezing. Before eating, let it defrost at room temperature. Happy Anniversary!
