From your complimentary consultation and cake tasting, to your wedding day and beyond, you'll receive one-on-one attention from the decorator herself! We offer a wide variety of desserts and pastries from individual mini wedding cakes, to large scale confections, and every cupcake tower in-between!

A note from the decorator: I am truly blessed to be in this line of work. I honestly love my job, and the line of work I'm in! I love to hear every detail about my couples' weddings, not only for inspiration for their cake, mostly just because I genuinely love hearing all of the enthusiasm from the couple. It makes my job feel that much more special to be engaged in the entire atmosphere of the wedding. It also makes the cakes that much more memorable, because we do go through all of the details of their wedding and come up with a design together. Like I said, I love my job :) Read less

INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Cookies, Cupcakes, Dessert Buffet, Groom's Cake, Pastries
What additional services do you provide?
Consultations, On-site Delivery, On-site Setup, Pickup, Tastings
Do you provide customary cakes, such as Croquembouche?
Yes
Are you licensed by the state health department?
Yes
Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?
We schedule a one-hour appointment together that includes your complimentary cake tasting, design session, and entire quote work-up.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
My cakes are priced by servings. So if you're looking to feed 150 people, the price would be the same if you're going for a 3 tiered cake or a 4 tiered cake. Most people will choose the ladder! At the same price, who wouldn't?
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
The price does include the top tier of the cake. I offer a free replication of your top tier for your first anniversary. I call you a few weeks before to set up a date/time for you to pick it up. It can be the same decoration and flavor, or it can be something completely different. The choice is yours! It's your anniversary!
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
Every single cake I've created is custom to the customers wishes. We go through many details during your design session to create your cake together. It's a very personal experience!
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
I bake the cake VERY early the same morning as your event. It takes time for cake to cool to a temperature fit for decorating and stacking.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
I have a basic guideline of 5 weddings per day. Since I deliver and set-up each cake at the venue myself, I have to take into consideration time constraints and how far each location is. With that said, whoever puts down their deposit first will get the priority delivery time, and each couple after that will follow in the same order.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
I have a florist that I prefer to work with myself. However, if you're already working with a florist, I prefer to speak with them personally, on my own time to best coordinate for your event.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
I enjoy making ornate and original cake stands and pedestals. These are custom pieces, or you may choose to use ones that I've already created. I would say they are typically more of a shabby-chic or vintage style. But if we meet early enough, I'd be more than happy to create an original piece for your wedding!
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Absolutely. I prefer delivering wedding cakes myself. I don't even send out a delivery man to take my cakes. I drive them myself, set them up myself, and arrange the cake table myself if you ask me to do so. Our local area is a $50 charge. I deliver to farther cities, at an additional charge based on mileage.

It was the complimentary cake tasting that got me hooked here. The samples were delightful little cakes with the kind of cake piped on top of each slice. The marble cake with fudge filling was AMAZING! We also got yellow cake with raspberry filling because my husband is mildly allergic to chocolate. At the wedding, many guests told me how much they enjoyed the cake. I loved that after talking with Shannon about what I envisioned, she drew a wonderful design on the spot. I loved everything about it. Now, for the few cons. It took a while sometimes to get an email response back. But more importantly, when we got the price quote, since we had not decided on what cake we were getting, we were given two prices - for the regular cake and for the upgraded version. I assumed that this meant the regular batters and the fillings not labeled premium. Unfortunately, apparently all fillings made the cake premium. This makes sense in hindsight. However, that was not made clear to me before placing my order. So it was another $100 coming out of the bank that we did not expect. This is probably my fault, though, for not getting an exact price down before putting my deposit (which was off of the lowest quoted price). Otherwise, the cake was beautiful and delicious. I would highly recommend that fudge filling :)

Cake ended up looking beautiful but they gave me a great scare when not answering my emails for a few months. When I called they told me they didn't have a contract for me (after paying for cake in full) and I needed to bring my copy in. They ended up finding it but I worry that if I did not call I would not have had a cake!

I don't even know where to begin...My cake was absolutely amazing!!! And this is coming from a non-sweets, don't really like cake girl. I went with something non-traditional (inside-out, naked, fall-themed cake cake) that EVERYONE LOVED! It was a breeze and a pleasure to work with Shannon, the head Cake Decorator/Wedding person at the bakery, from start to finish. From the initial contact to multiple emails, to the tasting, to the final product... I couldn't have been more pleased. She is creative and brought to light my exact vision. And the price... absolutely outstanding. What a value. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended.

Shanon at Pairs is great. She is very talented and knows what she is doing. She was very flexible in meeting with us ahead of our event and very flexible in letting us taste prior to the event which most places do no let you do. Taste was our deciding factor in going with them as our tasting was excellent and there were so many different flavors and options that met our individual and unique wants.

The day of the cakes (wedding and Tigers grooms cake) turned out good. They were decorated just as we talked about in the sessions. There was some confusion as I had asked the wedding cake to be put in the middle of the dance floor and it wasn't, the grooms cake was, so we had to move it all last minute which was a pain.

We didn't get to taste our cake that night but everyone said it was good.
