1. Are your cakes frosted with buttercream or fondant?
Our cakes are decorated with rolled fondant! Fondant gives your cake a clean,finished look, and it is also much sturdier than buttercream in warmer weather. Fondant is also easier to transport, and allows room for a lot more design creativity than buttercream.
2. What is fondant?
Fondant is a type of frosting or covering used on cakes and cupcakes. Fondant on a cake creates a smooth, stunning, seamless covering on wedding cakes and other cakes for significant traditional celebrations. It is primarily made of sugar and water, and a cake covered in fondant is sealed in and hence can stay fresh for up to three days.
3. How much do your cakes cost?
All cakes start at $4.50/serving, and the price increases based off of design complexity, number of servings, number of tiers and the flavors you choose! We use fresh, organic free-range/vegetarian fed eggs that are collected directly from a local farmer. Our butter comes from grass-fed cows and we use other top quality ingredients for all your orders! All of my cakes are designed specifically to your events, so you are not paying for an ordinary cake! You are paying for a unique, one-of-a-kind, custom cake and a true work of art!
4. Do you have a cake serving minimum?
Yes, we require a 25 person minimum serving for our cakes.
5. What is your delivery fee?
Delivery within a 5 mile radius is free. Deliveries within a 15 mi radius of Van Nuys are $25. Please contact us for pricing on deliveries further than 15 miles. Pick up is always free!
6. I am interested in setting up a candy buffet for my event. Do you offer this service?
Yes! We can design a candy buffet for your event! We take care of the setup, delivery, clean up and pick up, saving you plenty of stress and money during your event! Better yet, you can order your cake with a matching candy buffet theme for your entire dessert table! Contact us for more information, or view our Cakes & Candy page.
7. My event is in a week, is it too late to place an order?
Unfortunately, our busy schedule can many times limit us from accepting short notice orders. To guarantee an order with us, we ask that you call at least two weeks prior to your event! With that said, it doesn’t hurt to call and ask for our availability!
