Do I need to book an appointment to come in and see your cakes?
Yes, you should definitely book an appointment. Booking an appointment is easy. Call us at the bakery to get it scheduled.
What happens at the wedding cake consultation?
Your consultation should take about an hour. You will sample our cakes, fillings, and buttercream. We have a binder with wedding cakes to look at and we are more than happy to look at ideas that you may have brought with you. We can go over pricing details and work to get you the cake that is not only beautiful, but affordable. If you are ready, you can book your cake at the end of your consultation. If you’d like to keep an “estimate on file”, that’s always an option, too.
What if I am running late to the consultation?
We are a small bakery and run on a very tight schedule. If you are running late, please call and we can check on how tightly we are scheduled for that day. If you are less than 15 minutes away, it shouldn't be a problem. If you will be running more than 15 minutes late, we will more than likely need to reschedule for a later date.
Do you make “fake cakes”?
No. Weddings are expensive and unfortunately there is a misnomer that Styrofoam cakes are less expensive than real cakes. Styrofoam is actually more difficult to work with than cake and still requires the same amount of time to decorate that cake does. If you are needing to save money, we can choose a simpler design or go with a smaller cake. We will certainly sit and go over options to help you stick to your budget.
Is there a delivery charge?
Yes. Our delivery charge covers our time, fuel and set-up. We are small bakery and are limited on the amount of deliveries we can handle in one day. Delivery in Bastrop is $50 and covers most set-ups. This area also include most areas surrounding Bastrop. We will be able to confirm the delivery charge during the consultation.
May I display my cake outside?
Setting up your wedding cake outside is not recommended. Besides the danger of the buttercream melting (temperatures above 75 degrees), outdoor cakes stand the chance of drawing insects. Bees and flies like buttercream, too. If you must display your cake outside, we strongly recommend fondant icing. Keep in mind, a tent outside in the summer is considered “outside” even if it is air-conditioned.
