FEQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I HAVE TO PLACE AN ORDER?
Usually a few weeks in advance will do, but we can book up months in advance during wedding season for anything custom. To be sure, give us a call as soon as you know the date of your party. We can always work on the design later, but best to get in touch early!
HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER?
Give us a call or come into the shop! We’d love to speak with you personally about the cake you’re ordering for your special occasion. If you prefer email, we can do that too: firstname.lastname@example.org In your email, please be sure to include the date of the party and how many people the cake will serve. Conveniently you can also head on over to the ORDER menu and place an order for our classic party and event cakes.
DO YOU HAVE A BAKERY CASE FOR READY-TO-GO GOODIES?
We are open for business on Wednesday/Thursday/Friday 11am-6pm and Saturdays from 10am-3pm with small pastries (think Cupcakes, Cookies and Macarons) But if you would like a certain flavours or a dozen or more treats its best to order in advance so you are not disappointed.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A TASTING AND CONSULTATION?
After we chat on the phone about your special event, we’ll either invite you in for a half hour design consultation and tasting with Kate, or arrange a time for you to visit us and pick up a tasting box. Tastings are $25 and include a sampling of our most popular flavours. If you book your wedding cake at the time of the consultation the $25 deposit is forwarded onto your wedding balance.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located at 145 Wortley Rd. Upper in London, Ontario. We are not fully accessible at this point and the visit includes a jaunt up the stairs.
HOW MUCH ARE YOUR CUSTOM CAKES?
Wedding cakes start at $5+ per serving for buttercream finishes. Most Wedding and Custom Design with handmade sugar flowers fall into the $8+ per serving range. We will have a design consultation either over the phone or in person and give you a sketch and quote for your creation.
There is a non-refundable deposit for Wedding cakes under.
I HAVE A PHOTO OF A CAKE I WOULD LIKE FOR MY EVENT - CAN YOU MAKE IT?
We love photo inspiration from Pinterest as much as the next party planner! As an artist-led bake shop we strive to carve out our own designs and vibes as you can see in our Portfolio. While we are happy to use photos for inspiration we will bring our own artistic licence to the table in our designs.
HOW DO I PAY FOR MY CAKE AND SECURE MY DATE?
All wedding orders require a non-refundable deposit at the time of the order to hold the date, with the balance due two weeks prior to the event date.
