What is a custom cake?
A custom cake is any type of cake that goes above and beyond the call of regular cake work. This can include handmade fondant pieces, flowers, or attention to detail that is a little bit extra than a traditional style birthday cake. Tiered cakes and wedding cakes are also considered custom.
How much does a custom cake cost?
All of our custom cakes are priced out on an individual basis, so we will work with you to figure out exactly what will work for your guest count and budget. Generally, the cost of a custom cake starts with the size, cake flavors, and design work. From there, labor hours are factored in as well. Please visit our pricing for some basic information on cake pricing.
How much is a wedding cake?
A wedding cake has many variables that will effect the price. Details such as size, flavors, amount of servings, delivery range, and design can increase your price. We are happy to work within your budget if you let us know during the first conversations. If you are looking for some base pricing, Click here.
How much time in advance do I need to order?
Custom cakes take quite a bit of research and planning. With that in mind, we ask at least a 2 week notice (14 days). This allows us to special order custom items or unique ingredients. If you need a cake sooner, please give us a call at 270-216-0644 to check availability. Wedding Orders are very limited. The most popular dates in May, June, September, & October fill up about 9 months in advance. We encourage you to book your cake as soon as you have your venue booked to reach out.
Do I need to place a deposit?
Yes. A non-refundable deposit is dependent upon your order. On average, a deposit is 50% of your order total. This is to save your date, purchase supplies, & to turn down other orders to ensure you receive your cake on the date requested. We are a small bakery with limited amount of hours to bake & decorate. ORDERS ARE NOT CONFIRMED UNTIL DEPOSIT IS PAID.
What type of payment do you take?
We take cash or all major credit cards. We can also send you payment links online via email/text.
