Do you offer tastings?
Yes, at this time we only offer pickup/takeaway cake tastings as we are a home-based bakery without employees. Our tastings are every other Saturday of the month to accommodate most schedules. You are able to choose 5 flavors off of our menu for $30.00, or we can do custom flavors as well. If time permits and you are comfortable with an outdoor public setting we can do in-person, more in depth consultations. We need a minimum of 72 hours to book all cake tastings, however, availability is limited.
Do you offer delivery for weddings?
Yes, delivery and set up is $45.00 if you are within a 15 mile radius. Any additional mileage is $1.25/mile and we will coordinate a delivery time with you, your wedding planner, or event coordinator.
Do you require a deposit if I book with you?
If you book your wedding with us we require a $75.00 booking fee. This booking holds the date for your wedding and is a nonrefundable fee but does goes towards the value of your order. Two months prior to your wedding date we require 50% of the remaining total and two weeks before your wedding we require the other 50%.
If you are booking us for a party and your total order is under $120.00 we require a 25% deposit.
How far in advance should I place my order?
For weddings we love at least 2 months (or more) notice and need at least a months notice, sometimes we make exceptions. We do urge you to book your wedding as soon as possible to avoid unavailability.
For all other cakes we require 5 days of advanced notice to book an order. This, however, doesn’t mean that we will be able to fit the order in, especially for elaborate designs or larger cakes.
Can I choose multiple flavors for my wedding cake?
Every tier can be a different flavor. Say you have a 4 tier wedding cake, you can choose up to 4 different flavors (with the exception of 4” cakes), however, each tier will be a different amount of servings so keep in mind which flavors will be more popular with your guests and how many servings there will be for guests to choose from. We typically say 2 flavors is perfect for large wedding cakes to have equal serving amounts.
Can I pick up my cake?
Yes, pick up is always an option. We do always suggest when picking up cakes to have a flat surface in your car with nothing around it to avoid collisions and possible injuries to the cake. Once a cake leaves our premises any damages that may occur are no longer the responsibility of Simply Sifted.
