WHEN CAN WE SCHEDULE A TASTING?

Tastings are usually held on Saturdays. But we know that life gets busy, especially while planning a wedding, so for couples that can't make it in on the weekends, we have a few weekday tasting spots available each week. Please keep in mind that we are closed Sunday and Monday and do not hold tastings in the bakery on those days. Tastings generally last 45 minutes -1 hour and we can accommodate up to 4 guests (total) at each tasting.

Please call or email to schedule your tasting:

DO YOU CHARGE FOR TASTINGS?

Indeed we do. Our tastings are $25 and that amount will count against your wedding cake* once you book with us

*cake must meet the custom cake minimum pricing

BUT I REALLY WANT TO BRING MORE THAN 4 GUESTS, CAN I? 

Because our tasting appointments take place in our bakery, we must limit tastings to 4 adults maximum (including the bride and/or groom), in order to have space for both our guests and our bakers!


WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE I SHOW UP? 

Well, we encourage you to come hungry. That's a start! Aside from that, feel free to bring in any inspiration you have, (magazine clippings, Pinterest pages, sketches, fabric swatches, etc.) but don't worry if you don't know what you want yet... we'll figure it out together. 


WHAT WILL I TASTE? 

We want you to taste your faves! Rachel's Cake and Sweet As A Strawberry are our two award winning besties so we always include those for you to dig into, but upon booking your tasting we will have you choose 4 other flavors from our favorites menu to try.  Take a peek at our menu for your options! 


WHEN SHOULD I START LOOKING FOR A CAKE?

We recommend that you come in for your tasting somewhere between 3-6 months before your wedding day. Of course, the early birds get the worm, so the sooner you know the better (so we can guarantee availability and delivery time). 


OKAY (*BLUSH*) HOW MUCH AM I GOING TO SPEND?

All of our wedding cakes are custom made from scratch, and take a lot of time to bake, design and decorate. Pricing for wedding cakes starts at $6 per person, and goes up based on difficulty and design. If you have a strict budget, just let us know about it. We are more than happy to work within it and suggest ways to make a cake as big as you need, in the flavor you want, with the design you can afford!  


DO I NEED TO LEAVE A DEPOSIT?

All wedding cakes and custom cakes require a 50% deposit up front to hold your date. This deposit can be made over the phone with a credit card, or in person at the bakery with cash or check. The balance will be due one week before the big day.


DO YOU DELIVER?

Indeed we do! The last thing you need to do on your wedding day is come pick up a ginormous cake! We deliver throughout the Bay Area, all the way from Santa Cruz to Napa (and beyond if need be!). Deliveries within Burlingame are $40. Please inquire about the delivery charge to your venue.


TBH..I'M NOT REALLY INTO CAKE... I WANT PIE OR POPS OR A DESSERT BAR!

Not a problem! We specialize in all types of baked goods and will do all that we can to make your dream dessert a reality.  Because we want to get to know you and we want you to get to know our product, we will serve you our favorite slices during the consultation and then depending on your vision we will figure out a game plan to get you the sweets you're craving. 


CAKE STAND? HOW DO I GET ONE OF THOSE????

Don't worry, we got you! You can rent one of our cake stands (we have plenty) for $25.00. The cake stand needs to be returned to us within 1 week of the event.
