do you offer florals on cakes?
in order to achieve consistency throughout your event, we highly recommend ordering additional florals from your florist providing florals for the event. we will then clean, process, wrap and decorate your custom cake on site with the florals provided. if you are not having florals provided, we would be happy to provide florals at an additional cost. as with our cake ingredients, we order local, pesticide free florals when possible. costs on florals vary based on intricacy of design, and type of florals.
can you create custom cake flavors not on your list?
absolutely! since we are a made to order bakery (everything is fresh, never frozen) cost variances typically differ based on if special ingredients would need to be ordered to achieve the cake. If ingredients outside of our regular list are required, an additional $1-2 per serving may be added, depending on the flavor request.
can you create vegan or gluten free cakes?
we have a limited selection of gluten free and vegan cake options. all specialty (vegan, dairy free, gluten free) cakes start between $10-12 per serving. please inquired for more details.
