How to buy a Wedding Cake, Tips & Answers

How soon should I place my cake order?

You may place your wedding cake order as soon as you decide on your wedding date. We prefer that the order be placed at least one month prior to your wedding. We make every effort to accommodate last minute orders. Appointments are recommended for all cake orders.

Can my wedding cake have more than one flavor?

Yes, you may choose from our selection of delicious flavors. However, we recommend that you order only two different flavors. Your guests will want to sample all the flavors and there is a chance that you may run out of cake.

I have a special design in mind and I have a picture of how I want my wedding cake to look. Will the Pastry Chef make it?

In many cases we can customize your cake. The Pastry Chef must approve the order before we can confirm that we will provide it for you. Ideally, you should set-up an appointment with our San Diego Wedding Cake Coordinator specifying that you will need to have your cake approved by the Pastry Chef.

Do you provide sugar flowers or other decorations?

Yes. Our Pastry Chef can decorate your wedding cake with an elegant cascade of sugar flowers, with marzipan flowers and icing, or candied violets at an additional charge.

What are my choices of tier stands?

For a traditional look we recommend either our white plastic tier stands with elegant white pillars, or our clear acrylic tier stands with elegant clear twisted pillars that give the appearance of glass. For a beautiful cascade effect where each cake sits on a separate tier stand at a different level we recommend either our white plastic stands or clear acrylic stands. We also have beautiful engraved silver cake stands, to really give your cake a grand effect.

What time should the wedding cake be delivered?

We recommend that your cake be delivered one hour prior to the start of your reception, but this may vary depending on the weather, whether your cake is inside or outside, in the sun, etc. We will do our best to accommodate your florist. Please note that the cake can be only guaranteed for up to four hours.
