I would like to sample your cakes, how can I book a tasting?
The consultation includes a cake tasting where you will be able to sample 3 delicious cake flavor combinations from our menu. The consultation and tasting fee is $60.00 per couple and $20.00 for each additional guest.
If you choose to move forward with our wedding cake services, then a 50% of the tasting fee will be deducted from your order with the minimum of $560.00 wedding cake order. For destination weddings, minus shipping charges.
If you are planning your wedding from the mainland, we can ship a "cake tasting box" to you by FedEx.
Should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment we require at least 72 hours notice. Cancellations without the appropriate notice will be charged in full.
How much can I expect to pay for your designed cakes?
Since each cake is one-of-a-kind and custom designed to particular specifications and has so many variables, it is impossible to offer a general price list. Our cakes priced individually, are based upon the complexity of design, detail of sugar work and the number of guests being served. Sometimes a smaller cake takes longer to create than a large one, therefore, it will be priced higher.
With buttercream filling of your choice and with / same as filling or / white buttercream icing. Designs involving handcrafted flowers and characters, or more complex designs will be priced a higher rate per serving. Please see our "Flavors & Price"page.
Before you arrive for your consultation, it is always helpful to have a budget in mind for what you would like to spend on your cake. This will give us a better idea of what we can design for you.
How many flavors can I order in my tiered cake?
You may choose 2 flavor variations for multi-tiered cakes that are 40 servings or more. If the cake is less than 40 servings, there will be a $25.00 charge for a second flavor. You may order as many flavors as you like for your tiered cake, but there will be a $25.00 charge for each additional flavor. Single tier and sculpted cakes are 1 flavor.
How wide is your delivery area on the Big Island and how much do you charge?
We deliver throughout the Big Island at $1.00 per mile rate.
Set up and serving fees are calculated at an hourly rate of $100 / team of two (2) staff.
Do you ship your cakes to the neighboring Islands?
We do not ship our cakes with carriers, as it is a very unreliable delivery method for a fragile cake. Most of our cake designs require careful assembly and final touchups on site.
Is there a deposit to reserve the date?
In order to reserve a designed cake from us for your special day, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit that we will base on the total estimated price of your order. Therefore, please be absolutely certain that you would like us to design your cake, as all orders are date- specific and deposits are non-refundable. No exceptions!
We are using Square invoice for all payments that will be emailed to you.
When is final payment due?
The full balance for your order is due 4 weeks before the date of your event. If final balance is not received 2 weeks prior to the event date, considered a cancellation of service and your cake will not be made.
How far in advance should I book my wedding cake?
Most couples reserve the date six months or so before their special day as we are often booked up months ahead. Therefore, the sooner the better to reserve your date on our calendar. We definitely try to accommodate last minute orders, if our schedule permits. Please call or email to find out our availability for your particular date.
I would like to have fresh flowers on my cake, can that be arranged?
We prefer to work with our sculpted sugar flowers. All the flowers you see in our portfolio are handmade from sugar. We can create any flower in any color. However, if you prefer fresh flowers please consult with your florist to arrange for the flowers to be available at the venue for us to place them on your cake.
