Congratualtions on your engagement!!! Time for the fun part of tasting and ordering your wedding cake!
Our professional, award winning decorators have over 27 years experience in the wedding cake industry. Visit our shop to peruse through our cake albums or visit us on Facebook to see more photos. You are welcome to bring in your own ideas or photos and clippings from magazines. We'll custom design just what your looking for. Everything from modern to traditional, or "sweet and simple" to "grandeur" in size. Unusual or unique cakes are our specialty.
Floral accents are a popular choice to decorate the cake. They can be made of buttercream, gumpaste, fondant, silk or fresh. If flowers aren't your thing, then how about fondant bows with tails or fondant swags to adorn the cake? Want a modern twist? Add color to your cake by airbrushing or icing each layer in tinted buttercream. Hand piped Graphic designs are real big now with each tier in a different design. Stacked cakes are very popular as are the traditonal tiers.
Have a unique theme or fun request for your cake? No problem!! We've done fighting ninjas on a comic book cake, Moon and stars theme, Beach or ocean lovers, Fall leaves tree with pumpkins, an Addams family design at Halloween, Teapot topper pouring "tea" down the side, Gothic, Irish/Gaelic themes, etc. Fun, fun, fun!!!
You don't have to stick with the traditional bride and groom topper either. Try bows, floral arrangements, cake "jewelry", monogramms, statues, whatever fits your taste. We don't sell toppers, but there are a variety of web sites to help you out. Try www.theknot.com.
When to Order
It is appropriate to order your wedding cake 3-6 months in advance. Please contact us to check for availability.Your wedding cake can be ordered as little as 2 weeks in advance, but the date may not be available. We suggest you order your wedding cake as soon as possible, especially for the month of June, but no more than 1 year in advance.
Free Consultation Appointment
When you are ready to decide, schedule an appointment for your free consultation. You will be able to try up to three complimentary samples of the cake and/or fillings of your choice, and consult with our decorators to design your cake. You should bring information that we may need, to place your order, such as any photos or magazine clippings of a cake you'd like us to duplicate or design from, swatches of colors we may need to match, the reception locations phone number and contact person, florist name and phone number, etc. If you would like to reserve your wedding cake date and pick out your final design at another time, a 25% deposit will be necessary. This is of course put towards your balance, but it will reserve your date so we can guarantee your order. It is suggested to do so for the busy months of April, May, June, September and October. You may then have more time to pick out your cake design. Delivery is included to the Downriver area, but there may be a delivery/set-up fee if outside our delivery area or if the cake design requires additional work in set-up at the hall.
Our price is based on per serving. We start at $3.00 per serving. Full price list is available in our wedding cake brochure available through e-mail or download here.

A 25% deposit is required at the time you place your order. The balance must be paid in full, one month prior to the date. If any changes are to be made to the serving size/design , please notify us at least two weeks before the date.
