Wedding Cakes

Wedding cakes are the main focus of my business and therefore occupy most of my time. I book up quickly during the wedding season, so it is best to reserve the date on my calendar at least 6 months in advance. Prices start at $5/serving (minimum of $500 for orders placed more than 4 months in advance).  Please email or call me for more information and to set up a tasting.

Groom's Cakes

The groom's cake used to be considered a southern thing (think armadillo cake in Steel Magnolias), but now it is popular at weddings throughout the country. Usually served at the rehearsal dinner or an addition to the bride's wedding cake at the reception, it is most often playfully designed to match the groom's interests. It's a fun way to get the groom involved in wedding planning or it's the perfect surprise for him.  Pricing variable - minimum $500 for orders placed more than 4 months in advance.
