INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Cupcakes, Groom's Cake
What additional services do you provide?
Consultations, On-site Delivery, On-site Setup, Tastings
Do you provide customary cakes, such as Croquembouche?
No
Are you licensed by the state health department?
Yes
Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?
Private Cake Design Sessions and Complimentary Cake Tastings available for the couple and 2-3 guests.
What are your tasting hours?
Tasting are by appointment only. Expect it to take about an hour. Available times include noon-1pm, 4-5pm, 5-6pm, 6pm-7pm.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Pricing is by the slice, not by the design. There are a range of affordable ways to create the perfect cake for your big day - from Display Tiered Cakes, to Cupcakes or a 3D creation. The sky is the limit, not your budget.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
Yes. The top tier is included. If your order is over $300, our shop will recreate your top tier on your 1 Year Anniversary for FREE. That way you have a fresh cake that won't be freezer burnt and those servings can go toward your guest count.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
Yes, all of our designs are custom. Feel free to bring in a design that you are fond of, but we can also sketch one out to fit the overall feel and experience of your wedding day.
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
Our almond-vanilla buttercream recipe is a one-of-a-kind and has received rave reviews. Our mousse fillings are whipped up seconds before they fill your cake and have fresh fruits in them. Our puddings are stable in different temperature settings and fruit fillings are a crowd favorite. We also make fresh chocolate gananche as both a topping and a filling.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
Some fondant details, like flowers that need to be dry for decorative purposes usually are made 4 days- 1 week in advance. You cake will not be baked until 1-2 days in advance. It needs proper cooling time, icing, decorating and depending on the weather, will need to chill overnight.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
We do not book more than two weddings per weekend to ensure that your wedding is getting the attention that it needs and that it is fresh!
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Absolutely! Fresh flowers make any cake breathtaking! We have no fears about working with flowers on a cake and we make sure to not stick stems into the cake, but rather place them gently on the cake. It is important to keep the cake food safe.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
We offer a wide variety of cake stands for rental. There is a $25.00 deposit required for any rental items. They must be returned clean and in good condition by the following Wednesday of your wedding.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Yes. Delivery is free in Faribault, MN. Otherwise, it is $.55 per mile (just the way there, not the way back). There is also an additional $40 set up fee for cupcake displays or tiered cakes.

What a totally delightful experience! Our cakes -- both the tiered cake as well as sheet cakes -- were just what we'd hoped, and Laura captured the feel of our wedding even better than I could have hoped. She echoed the look and font of our invitations for the sheet cake, which we loved. Most importantly our guests commented on how delicious the cakes were! I also loved being able to work with a vendor from near our wedding location -- if you're planning a wedding or event in southern Minnesota, you must call Confectionery Cake Shop.

Laura is an excellent baker. We have always loved eating her cupcakes, and we were thrilled when we found out she did wedding cakes. In the end, we got an assortment of cupcakes and a 6" cutting cake.

We gave her just a little guidance in decorating and then let her work her magic. Everything was beautiful! Her work fit in perfectly with our winter wedding.

And, best of all, everything tastes fabulous. We had some leftover cupcakes (and she loaned us a box to take them home in!), and we enjoyed eating them for days. Pro tip: order more chocolate than the other flavors. That was definitely the most popular!

Finally, Laura is smooth and professional. She replies to emails quickly, sets up a table beautifully, and is an overall joy to work with. I had every confidence (and no doubts) in having her as one of our vendors. I imagine we will also order other cakes from her in the future. You can't go wrong with Confectionary Cake Shop!

I couldn't be happier with Confectionery Cake Shop! Laura provided us with cakes balls as party favors for our guests and they were AMAZING! Since the wedding, I have had numerous guests come up to my husband and I and ask who made them? Of course we replied, Confectionery Cake Shop! The cake balls tasted just like you were eating a piece of cake, They were one of the best deserts I have ever had! I would certainly purchase the cake balls again! Thank you Confectionery Cake Shop, and Laura O'Connor everything was awesome!

I would recommend Confectionery Cake Shop to all my friends and family.
Laura did a great job at achieving the look I was going for. And gave many suggestions to make it even better. The wedding cake was beautiful. She went far beyond my expectsions of what my wedding cake would look like. And most important it was so delicious! The next day we only had the bottom layer of our three tierd cake. We had three sheet cakes and the wedding cake. Everyone was telling how delicious the cake was! Thank you so much Confectionery Cake Shop! You did a wonderful job at everything. it was one thing I know i didn't have to worry about!

The Confectionery Cake Shop, and the owner Laura, is truly amazing! She made us the most ornate and delicious cake for our wedding! Each loop, flower, and ribbon was perfectly placed, and the flavor was like nothing I have ever tasted before. Our cake was one of the most talked about things of the night and everyone was asking if we had any left over for them to take home! I strongly encourage any bride or groom out there to visit with Laura of the Confectionery Cake Shop too. She is a breath of fresh air, and can really capture your ideas and put them in cake form. She produces stunning cakes that also taste delicious, it is win-win! I would suggest you book her now before she fills up!

Laura at Confectionery Cake Shop was amazing to work with. She was able to see my vision and make my dream cakes come true! From my MN Vikings Groom's Cake, the Head Table Cake, and my Wedding Cupcakes they all were perfect. We had so many compliments and the appearance as well as the taste. People were begging for more. I would highly recommend Laura at Confectionery Cake Shop to everyone. It is really nice working with a small and personal company. Don't miss out!

Laura is a very personable woman, which is great when you're under the stress of planning a wedding. She was very flexible with us, and allowed us to add on an extra dessert for our rehearsal dinner at the very last minute.
The cake we ordered for the head table was great, (a vanilla/chocolate cake with strawberry filling) and the rest-cupcakes, were equally as delicious. Two things I enjoyed outside of Laura's personality were how well the cup cakes held up days after the wedding (our turn out was smaller than expected and we had extra), and that she didn't insist we use fondant on the head-table cake.
All around, I really enjoyed working with Laura, and my husband says she was our "best vendor"!

Confectionery Cake Shop provided cupcakes for our wedding guests as well as a Groom's Cake for cutting at the reception. We received numerous compliments from our guest on the tasty cupcakes. We were glad to be able to work with a small business owner directly since most caterers seem to be so large and too busy to have a one on one relationship. Laura was extremely responsive and exceeded all our expectations. We never had one worry about the appearance and taste of our desserts. Highly recommend this vendor!
