Wedding Cake Consultations

Wedding cake consultations are done by appointment only with Courtney at our Boone location.

I like to meet with the bride and one or two other guests preferably about 3-9 months before the wedding date. However, depending on the date of your wedding, I can usually take orders within a few weeks before.

You can find photos of our cakes on our website and our Facebook page and I do have photos of our cakes in the store for you to look at; however, it is very helpful if you have done a bit of research ahead of time so you have an idea of what size, shape, design, etc. that you like. I LOVE when people bring me new ideas so feel free to bring in photos of cakes you’ve seen in magazines or online, you may bring them to the appointment with you, save them to your phone to show me, or you can email them to me ahead of time.

When you call or email to schedule an appointment, please let us know the following information:

  • the date of your wedding
  • where your reception is located
  • how many guests you’re planning on serving cake
  • what flavors/fillings you might be interested in…
    …I will have samples ready for you to try!
  • how many people you plan to bring to the consultation with you

A 45-60 minute consultation is FREE. When you decide to reserve your wedding date with us, we do ask for a $75.00 deposit which will then be applied to the total balance of your cake order. If your order is canceled for any reason, your full deposit will be refunded up until 2 weeks before the wedding date.

We deliver within the Boone and Ames area. The delivery charge depends on the location, date, and time of your event. Smaller cakes are very easy to transport and can be picked up in the store the day of your event.

I can't wait to meet you to help design a unique wedding cake for your special day!
