CAKE TASTING APPOINTMENTS
We recommend you call us to set up your consultation/tasting appointment at least 6 months in advance of your event. (If you are not able to set the consultation appointment right away, but do wish to reserve the date, you may pay the $75.00 Save-the-Date deposit prior to a consultation.)
During the consultation, you will be able to see our wedding cake photos, share your ideas with us, and taste samples of our cakes. Please be sure to bring any items/patterns/colors of wedding theme, drawings, magazines and pictures of cakes you like. Remember that many cakes you see in magazines are touched up, just like models. We will be glad to discuss expectations and work with you to create a realistic plan for your personally crafted cake. Be prepared to address special dietary needs such as nut allergies, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, fruit allergies, etc. When calling in your appointment, have ready 4 cake flavors, 3 icings and 2 fillings of your choice; also 3 possible appointment date time. Appointment times are available Monday-Friday and Saturday(fill up fast) at our Cesar Chavez location.
When your consultation is complete, you will be asked to verify your order information, event details and review and sign your cake contract. If you do wish to continue with our service, please be prepared to pay a 50% deposit at the consultation. If you are still unsure, you may take a copy of your cake order and call us later with payment if you decide to proceed. Please note that wedding dates get filled up closer to 3-4 months in advance, so we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to make the initial deposit or a Save-the-Date non-refundable deposit of $75.00.
Appointment Fee is $30.00 which will be applied towards your balance, if the cake is $300.00 or over.
The maximum number of people we can accommodate at the tasting is 4.

We offer a vegan version of a cupcake sampler for $20 and comes with 6 cupcakes of our standard flavors. (vanilla, chocolate, carrot, italian creme, red velvet and coconut)
Unfortunately gluten free or any special dietary restricted flavor are not available with our cupcake sampler, but we ARE able to accommodate when setting up a cake tasting.

Can I bring my child to the cake consultation?
While this may be an exciting time for you, it may be difficult for a child to sit throughout the entire consultation in our small space. Bringing children to consultations is strongly not recommended. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us in advance before your consultation.

Cake consultations can last approximately an hour where refreshments will be available as well as cake tasting of up to four people and whatever you don’t finish is yours to take home.
What should I bring to the consultation?
Bring with you the number of guests you expect to serve, the date, time, and location information. If there is a color you want us to match, bring piece of fabric, or an invitation that may help us design a cake for you. Bring your ideas or pictures of any cakes you have seen and liked. Most importantly, you will be sampling our delicious cake flavors so please bring your appetite!
