Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Cakes are priced by the serving and start at $4.00 per serving.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
We give you a fresh replica tier on your first anniversary. On your wedding day, you may cut and serve all of your cake.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
We specialize in custom cakes and have hundreds of photos of wedding cakes that we have designed in our catalog in the store.
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
Our signature buttercream is a very light, Italian meringue buttercream made with real butter. For fillings in wedding cakes, we like to use mousses because they are light and not too overpowering. We have over twenty mousse flavors to choose from.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
We make wedding cakes one day in advance so that the cake has time to "settle" and chill before it is delivered. It is not a good idea to transport a room temperature wedding cake.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
We specialize in wedding cakes, so when it's wedding season we do anywhere from five to fifteen in a three day weekend.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
If you are using a florist for the flowers on your cake, you should ask them what they prefer to do, or if their schedule will allow them to arrange the flowers on the cake. Some florists like to put flowers on the cake, others do not. At no charge, we will put a florist?s pre-arranged flowers on the cake. However, if loose flowers are ordered through your florist, you need to communicate very clearly to the florist and to Creative Cakes who is responsible for arranging your loose flowers. We will charge an arranging fee for the arrangement of loose flowers. 
 If we are providing your flowers, we will be arranging the flowers on the cake at no charge. 
 If you provide the flowers, we will charge a nominal arranging fee. You will have to bring the flowers to the bakery 24 hours before the reception date, or have the flowers waiting at the hall when we arrive with the cake. 
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
We rent silver and gold cake plateaus and other various stands.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Our delivery area covers all of the south suburbs of Chicago, downtown Chicago, as far west as Wheaton, southwest to Joliet, and east, to nearby Indiana. 
 The delivery charge not only covers our time and fuel costs, but set-up as well. Some cakes requiring elaborate set-ups may be subject to an increased set-up and delivery charge. Prices range from $20.00 for local deliveries to $150.00 for downtown Chicago and distant deliveries.

Their cakes are so delicious. I am actually not a big fan of cake, but I really love everything they make. It is so light and so good! Our cake was beautiful and came out even better than I imagined it would.

We are very happy we attended a vendor show in which Creative Cakes was a featured bakery. Their cakes are one of few I've had that are both delicious and light. Creative Cakes was the first vendor we chose for our wedding and we were so happy with our cake on our wedding day. It not only tasted delicious but was stylistically beautiful as well. The baker who delivered it even used some of our extra florals that made it really pop. We highly suggest Creative Cakes. You will be so happy you did!

I fell in love with their cakes instantly. Typically I do not like wedding cake and had this bad stigma that it was dry but creative cakes has the most moist and delicious cake I've ever had! They offer so many flavors and options from cakes to cupcakes.

We went with cupcakes for our guest and a cake for the head table. And we are usually not big on cake for weddings but we heard back from everyone saying how amazing the cupcakes turned out. I was lucky enough to have a cupcake the next day and they were amazing!
