Congratulations on your engagement!

Cake tasting is one of the most enjoyable parts of planning your wedding. We will work you to create a beautiful custom cake that captures the spirit of your special day, from simple elegance to rustic chic to over-the-top glam. Not looking for a traditional wedding cake? We also provide cupcakes, pastries and other desserts as well as groom’s cakes, and we love to be part of non-traditional celebrations. We take pride in creating cakes and desserts that taste as good as they look and in providing unique options that you won’t find everywhere else. You’ll find answers to the most commonly asked questions below. Schedule your tasting consultation now and let us turn your dreams into reality!

Do you offer tastings?

We are not conducting face to face tasting appointments at this time due to COVID-19 but we’d be happy to make you a tasting box “to go” with up to four different samples in it for pick up via takeout or our curbside service. All of our cakes have four layers of cake and three layers of filling inside so please choose a cake, a filling and a frosting for each sample!

Our flavors include:

Cake: Chocolate | Vanilla | Funfetti | Strawberry | Red Velvet | Carrot | Seasonal

Fillings: Buttercream | Chocolate Buttercream | Cream Cheese | Strawberry | Raspberry | Lemon | Chocolate Mousse | Strawberry Mousse | German Chocolate | Salted Caramel | Dark Chocolate Ganache | Ganache, Caramel and Pecans | Whipped Cream

Frostings: Buttercream | Chocolate Buttercream | Dairy Free Buttercream | Cream Cheese | Dark Chocolate Ganache | White Chocolate Ganache | Whipped Cream | Fondant The cost of the tasting box is $15, which will be applied to your order should you choose to book with us. Please note that tiered cakes can only be made with buttercream or fondant icing. Please contact us at 512-219-1235 or at to arrange for a tasting box.

How far in advance should I book my wedding cake?

We are a family-owned boutique bakery and make a limited number of custom cakes each week so that we can give each one the care and attention it deserves. We accept bookings up to 12 months in advance, but can often make cakes with a few weeks’ notice during slower periods. March, April, May, October and Christmas/New Year’s are our busiest times, so if you are getting married during those time periods we recommend making your cake arrangements as soon as you have finalized your venue, colors and theme and have a reasonable estimate on the number of attendees.

What should I expect at my tasting?

We will schedule a phone consultation with you once you’ve tried  your sample box to discuss designs and pricing. Please feel free to share any inspiration pictures with us to help guide the discussion!

How much will my wedding cake cost?

Every cake is different and is therefore individually priced. There are three main factors that impact the cost — the size, the flavors & fillings and the decoration. Our tiered wedding cakes are priced by the slice, starting at $5.50 per slice for buttercream frosting (wedding cake slices are generally 1” x 2” x 4”). The base price includes four layers of cake and three layers of filling inside each tier in one of our basic flavors with buttercream icing on the outside. Our cakes can be made in any size to accommodate your number of guests. An upcharge applies for premium flavors and fillings. Cupcakes start at $39 per dozen. The additional charge for the decoration is based upon the complexity of the design, the materials used and the time required to complete it. Generally speaking, buttercream designs and fresh flowers are less expensive than fondant work, intricate piping, metallic finishes or gumpaste and wafer paper flowers.

Can you accommodate special diets? What if I'm just not into cake?

Yes! There is no need to deprive yourself of delicious cake just because of specific dietary requirements. We have gluten free, GF/DF, and low carb keto-friendly  offerings available. Many of our flavors can also be made without nuts (but again, we do use tree nuts and peanuts in our kitchen in case cross-contamination is a concern). We also offer cupcakes, cake balls, cookies, brownies, cheesecakes and a variety of other desserts. .

The tasting was a success! I love your cake. Now what?

We require a 50% deposit to hold your date based upon the size and design we discuss at your consultation. We will re-confirm all the details two weeks prior to your wedding (you can make changes to the design, size or flavor up until then) and collect the remaining balance at that point. Then we will make you a beautiful, delicious cake and you and your guests will enjoy it!

Do you deliver?

Yes, we deliver for an additional fee that is based on distance and the complexity of set up. Our maximum delivery radius is one hour from our shop (mileage varies depending upon your venue and whether the route is mainly on the freeway or on winding backcountry roads. Give us a call if you have questions).

Can I pick my cake up myself?

Yes – in many cases you can safely transport your cake yourself (or have a friend or family member pick it up for you). In these cases, we will have the cake fully assembled and ready to go. We will package it in a sturdy cardboard box the same size as the cakeboard on the bottom tier (so it doesn’t move around). The box will have a flap in the front, so once you arrive you just fold down the flap, slide the cake out, and set it in its place of honor. You will need a safe driver and a vehicle with a flat surface big enough to hold the cake (e.g. the cargo area in a station wagon, SUV, or minivan – sometimes the floorboards will also work for a smaller cake). Please note that the front seat is generally not truly flat and is not recommended for transporting your cake. The key to success is to keep the cake cool (turn on that AC!) and to avoid hard stops or sharp turns. If you are traveling some distance or if it’s particularly warm outside, you may want to consider renting our special insulated cooler box for additional peace of mind.

Do you provide cake stands?

A cake stand provides the finishing touch for your cake, elevating it (literally!) and completing the presentation. We have a variety of cake stands available for rent  – just be sure to return them within three business days.

Where can I see some of your cakes?
