INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Cupcakes, Dessert Buffet, 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?
Yes, complimentary consultation and tastings are encouraged for wedding cake orders. Take advantage of the free in-home service I also offer (local only of course!)
What are your tasting hours?
I am flexible and try to best accomodate your busy schedule. I can meet weekdays and evenings and saturday.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Pricing is per serving and starts at $6.25* for buttercream icing with a simple style of decoration. You can decrease your overall price per serving by using a backup sheet cake with a smaller display cake, sometimes significantly especially if you have a very large event planned 
 
 *current rate as of 2013 subject to change.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
Yes, the top tier is included in the estimate of servings. If you plan to keep it you would need to account for it's size.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
Both. You can choose from a vast portfolio of designs I've already done, bring me a photo or drawing of something else you've found as inspiration (i like to find some way to personalize it for you rather than outright copy), or we can create a custom design of your own. Things like invitations, color scheme, venue/site, dress details (yours and/or the BMs) are all helpful sources of inspiration for your custom cake. Custom designs are my personal favorite :)
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
I use fresh, natural ingredients as much as possible. Fresh eggs, cream, butter, high quality chocolates and nuts, etc. all make a huge difference in the final outcome.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
Generally, its a 3-4 day process. Your cake is never frozen and will taste fresher than anything you've ever had!
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
Usually only 2 orders per weekend so that I can dedicate my efforts to your cake.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Yes. I prefer to place the flowers on the cake as you and I have discussed how to arrange them on the cake. I always recommend the florist to provide the same flowers, so that everything will match. If you are not using a florist I am happy to provide the cake flowers at an additional cost.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
I have a variety of cake plateaus available for rent. I also have a side business called "Finish Your Cake" which provides custom made cake stands and accessories. It's an Etsy shop and is a fantastic way to really put that finishing personal touch on your cake table.... it will literally "elevate your cake ... in every way!" www.etsy.com/shop/FinishYourCake
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Yes, ALL CAKES are delivered! Local (concord, pleasant hill, martinez, walnut creek) delivery is no charge. Outside this area is quoted based on mileage and estimated time of travel.

Kelly from Glass slipper gourmet went above and beyond for our cake. I am so impressed! We had an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding and having a whimsical cake is a big part of the event. Not only was the cake delicious but it was beautiful. Kelly sculpted the most amazing cake decorations out of gum sugar from flowers, over size teacup & saucer to a golden pocket watch, the details was amazing! Glass slipper gourmet is professional, informative, taste great and all at a very fair price. You can't go wrong with them.

Kelly, you were such a pleasure to work with! Our guests are still complementing us on our delicious wedding cake. Your idea of including a sheet cake to accommodate the number of guests we were expecting worked like a charm with some cake left over. If we could rate you higher than a 5 we would. Keep up the great work. We are truly excited about working with you on our upcoming baby shower. Can hardly wait to taste the cake you'll be baking for us. Yummy!

The Glass Slipper Gourmet made my wedding the most special day of my life. Aside from the beautiful presentation of the cake, my guests couldn't get enough of it. I have never seen cake disappear so quickly! People ran back for seconds and even third servings. The filling and frosting were to die for! I had so many guests request the contact information of Kelly (Owner of The Glass Slipper Gourmet). Kelly will be making my baby shower cake and I can imagine many more treats to come!

Kelly's cakes are the most beautiful and delicious you will see or taste! Kelly is also a wonderful person and is a joy to work with. She made, delivered, and decorated with fresh flowers on site our daughter's 3 tiered wedding cake a few weeks ago. I would highly recommend Kelly and Glass Slipper Gourmet! She is talented and extremely easy to work with and really cared about fulfilling the dreams of our bride! Thanks so much, Kelly!

I had looked at wedding cake options through a lot of vendors and was having a hard time on my budget. Glass slipper not only fit my budget but the cake taste and design exceded what I thought my money could afford. She made everything enjoyable and made sure our cake was a elegant statement of both my and my husbands personality!

Kelly is fantastic!
We had e-mailed her inquiring about a cake for our wedding. She came to our house for a complimentary cake tasting with about 10 flavors, all were amazing! She told us that she already had an event that day but she could do our cake if she could deliver it at 2pm. We ended up picking two flavors and she decorated it beautifully! She didn't try talking us into decorations or designs that we didn't want. I can't wait until our 1st anniversary so I can dig into that cake again!

We had a Cinderella Themed Wedding, and Wedding Cake. Kelly O'Brian was the person we chose to make and decorate our cake. Kelly O'brian was and is a very professional baker, and it shows in her work !!! Our wedding cake was OUTSTANDING ... our guests are still raving about it today, as well as the taste and flavors of our cake !!!

Amoung several things that I loved about Glass Slipper Gourmet, besides the professionalism, and the decorating, was the unique flavors of cakes, that Kelly has to offer !!! We had 3 flavors on our wedding cake. One was called Princess Cake, another was an Oreo Cookie Cake, and Honey Bee Mine Cake, which was purple inside like the colors of our wedding. All three of these flavors were EXCELLENT !!! And we have the wonderful pictures to prove it. And we will be willing to show anyone interested in a Cinderella Cake !!!

Kelly at "The Glass Slipper" was so great to work with! Our cake turned out to be exactly what I wanted, even more! The cake for me was my "Big" important thing for our wedding......when I saw the cake I was in awe! It was so beautiful, I did not want to cut into it! Besides, the beauty of my cake, it tasted great! Her cake flavors were all so yummy, but, we decided on three, and were very happy with our selection. Another great benefit of working with Kelly is that her rates are extremely reasonable....it really helped our with our budget, and I got much more of a cake (work of art) working with her than I would have if I went to a bakery.

I highly recommend Kelly and The Glass Slipper as a vendor for your wedding or special event.

Our cake was WOW! It was like a work of art. Kelly was really creative and attentive to the look we desired. Our wedding was going to be in a wine cave and we wanted a cake that had sugar-coated champagne grape accents. Unfortunately we were getting married when they were not yet in season but Kelly managed to find artificial ones online for us and coat those. I’m telling you – you could NOT tell that they were not real. And the cake was gorgeous (and surely very tasty!). So many of our guests snapped photos of the cake because it was so pretty. . And Kelly was always prompt about emailing back, which I greatly appreciated. Could not have been happier. THANK YOU KELLY!

Glass Slipper Gourmet did our engagement party cake, wedding cake and grooms cake. They were all amazing. First, Glass Slipper Gourmet was able to meet with us on short notice and work around our schedule. It was amazing to find a bakery that was able to give us the time and attention, rather than booking us in a tight window weeks away. The cakes were amazing. We had the rum cake for our wedding cake and mexican hot chocolate for the grooms cake. The cakes were perfect. They also looked amazing and completely matched our theme. We were extremely happy.

My cake was amazing. OMG. Kelly is a fantastic person to work with. She will give you the cake you want!!! Her cakes are a little pricey, compared to other vendors I tried, but worth every penny. SHE DOES NOT USE BOXED CAKES like some vendors ... at least they taste like they do. The cake she made for my wedding was commented on time and time again. People took pictures... it was the best cake they had ever seen or tasted!!! Kelly O'brien is your girl for cakes. She is a true artist and very professional. She is also very kind. We even got to do the cake tasting at our home! How awesome is that??! Also, her cake flavors are not boring and they melt in your mouth. MOISTEST cake ever!!! I would definitely recommend her to anyone anywhere. PERFECTION!!!

We were recommended to meet with Kelly and try her cakes by a friend. She came to our house and brought several samples for us to try. Let's just say it was hard to just pick 2 flavors. Her cakes are the most delicious cakes I have ever tasted and I am not a cake lover. I thought I would have a hard time finding something but boy was I wrong. When she brought the cake to the wedding I was stunned by how amazing it looked and we got several compliments on how delicious the cake was. Thank you so much for all your help and we WILL be using you for other events in the future.

Absolutely AMAZING! The cake was beautiful AND delicious. Even the tasting process was great (she comes right to your house and doesn't charge for it!).
We could really tell that Kelly put a lot of time, thought and energy in to the design of our cake. She took the theme of our wedding and the detail on my dress as inspiration and it turned out beautiful.
My new husband and I as well as our 75 guests were extremely happy with the design, detail and flavor (Jamaican Rum) of our cake.
The prices are incredibly (and surprisingly) reasonable for everything we got. She definitely could charge a lot more for all that was done for us. You can tell that there is a lot of passion put in to the cakes that are produced and to me, it's the small details that make an incredible wedding. Kelly helped to make ours all the more special.

Kelly was absolutely a dream to work with. From the very beginning working around our tough schedule (450 mile distance between us) to accommodating our wishes for custom cakes. We sampled 5 different places and all were good, Kelly was GREAT. Our scale was measured on moisture, flavor, presentation, & consistency - and again, Kelly's cakes hands down provided the best in those above categories. We loved her cakes, and enjoyed her company at our house, as she does tastings at your home. Thank you Glass Slipper for making our wedding so perfect!

Kelly at Glass Slipper Gourmet is a real gem of a lady. She is energetic, creative, professional, and I could go on and on but mostly she is TALENTED! Her prices are reasonable and her work is impeccable. She REALLY LISTENS and keeps up with a bride's changing ideas. She can take your vision and really turn it into something that you absolutely love. I loved my wedding cake - both the design and the flavor (dark chocolate with both milk and dark chocolate mouse filling). If you have the opportunity I'd say HIRE KELLY!
(Insider note: she has an awesome cake flavor that's perfect for wedding or baby showers: "Honey Bee Mine"! Check it out on her blog: http://glassslippergourmet.wordpress.com/cake-flavors/)

I wasn't 100% quite sure of the style of cake I had wanted but throughout planning Kelly was very accomodating and thorough in responding to my e-mails. The cake was one of our favorite things at our wedding. It was even more beautiful than I had imagined in my head. Not only that but they tasted amaaaazing, we had so many guests compliments. She has so many flavors to choose from that it was hard only picking one so we got two! My husband is dying for our one year to come so we can eat our top tier. We would definitely hire Kelly again for future birthdays, anniversaries, and any other occasion we can think of for an excuse eat more of her cakes :)

She even created a surprise Groom's cake for my fiance of Star Wars and Darth Vader! He loved it :) She is truly a professional and I would highly recommend Kelly for any and all occasions.

Kelly did an amazing job on our wedding cake and I was very happy with the final product. We had gone back and forth on the final design before settling on one and she was very flexible and accommodating the all the chances. She was able to incorporate a design element from our invitations and meld it with a picture that I found online.

Her consultation was very informative and she really has the experience and knowledge that we wanted. She made us feel very comfortable and even customized our cake flavor based on our responses from the tasting.

One piece of advise when going through the consultation or finalizing the order is to discuss specifically what the cake stand will be so that the cake board works. I failed to mention that the cake stand we were using was round and had a round cake on a square board on top of a round cake stand. Little oops! but could have been easily resolved if I had thought to say something.

Kelly's cakes are wonderful! We had ~15 flavors to try out during our cake testing and each of the flavors were unique and delicious. We chose two flavors for our wedding: "Honey-Bee Mine" and Tiramisu (special request- she even made a sample for our cake testing!). All of our guests raved about both cakes (we ordered enough for everyone to have a slice of both).. The "Honey-Bee Mine" had amazing texture, color, and flavor- blueberry, cream cheese, lavender, honey.. The Tiramisu cake was perfect- the espresso soaked through the layer of lady fingers and the cheese layer was the perfect ratio to cake layers.

Overall, Glass Slipper Gourmet was a "dream vendor". Kelly was very responsive to my numerous emails, was willing to make special order flavors, and two weeks later- people are still raving about the cake and inquiring who baked it. Kelly's cakes are a steal- the value greatly exceeds the cost.

Thank you, Kelly!

What a pleasure it was to work with Kelly. We had several tastings with other vendors, and she outshined them all not only in flavor but also in her creativeness with flavors. She made us the most delicious apple spice cake for our wedding. Not only that, but it was beautiful to boot! She made it exactly how we pictured it. I didn't want to cut into it, but when we did, we weren't disappointed and neither were our guests.

Planning our Clayton wedding was difficult; I was living in Honolulu and had to research all of my vendors on the internet. Needless to say this was difficult because of the time difference and the fact that some businesses didn't check their emails....then I found Kelly at the Glass Slipper Gourmet.
She IMMEDIATLEY emailed me back with quotes, suggestions, and even various meeting times. I emailed her a couple of pics of cakes I liked, along with my wedding "flower" (dusty miller), and she combined them all. Very cool.
When I met Kelly for a testing she brought like 20 different flavor combos. I was fat and happy by the time it was over - her cakes were top notch! She was also so fun and likeable; she didn't rush the meeting, offered suggestions, LISTENED, and even sketched out a rough draft. The price was only about $150 more than Safeway! For Fondant! Jeesh, why on earth would you go anywhere else??
Kelly was my favorite vendor, and honestly, when I look back on my wedding planning, she is the first person I think of. BTW, of all the decorations and vendors at my wedding, the cake got the best reviews. Perfect :)

And the night of the tastings, we couldn't believe how many to choose from, and what a hard decision it was. Then, later on we threw in another small Groom's cake and she accommodated us without a complaint. The cake was exactly as designed, and tasted like heaven! It was delivered with time to spare, and she set it all up. The cost was great compared to other bakers we had looked at too! What more could you ask for? Highly recommended!

When my husband and I met Kelly (of Glass Slipper Gourmet), we found her to be very professional, very flexible, and very enthusiastic about her craft. She worked with us to incorporate our cake design, and the tasting was fabulous! So when the wedding day arrived, we thought, "oh it's not a big deal, we know what the cake will look like." However, we were speechless when we saw our cake, it was gorgeous and more than we could've dreamed of! So much so, that it was almost a shame to have to cut the cake and serve it...

But boy, if the aesthetics of the cake was breathtaking, the cake it self was unbelievably delicious! It's very hard to think of food when you are the bride, but I actually made sure I had a piece of each of the flavors our cake had!

Kelly is an amazing artist and an amazing chef! She is creative and very pleasant to work with; I highly recommend Glass Slipper Gourmet!

In meeting with Kelly, she was very prepared and came with lots of pictures of her cakes to get some ideas, and several cakes to taste, all which were very fresh and great, making it very hard to chose from. I showed Kelly my wedding colors and a description of what I wanted. Kelly was able to creat a virtual mockup of what the cake would look like.
On the day of the wedding, the cake arrived just like the virtual one that she created. It was absolutely beautiful, and tasted great. I received many compliments from the guests.
Kelly is very professional, friendly, helpful, and makes great cakes. I highly recommend Glass Slipper Gourmet.

Kelly from Glass Slipper Gourmet is special. Normally, I would not take the time to complete a review, but when she asked, it was a no-brainer. She provides the highest level of service, quality, taste, and fun for her clients. It's rare that a cake generates so much interest during a wedding, but her cakes are one-of-a-kind. Without sounding too cheesy, Kelly provides love to baking and she is a class act. I would recommend her services without hesitation.

My sister actually found Glass Slipper Gourmet through a referral for her own wedding and she invited my fiance and me to participate in her cake tasting session. We had already tasted 2 other bakeries and were disappointed with them both, so we were thrilled to have found Glass Slipper Gourmet.
Kelly was a pleasure to work with. Her cakes are delicious and she offers beautiful designs; both classic and modern. Our biggest problem was deciding which flavors we liked best (we loved so many). Kelly took my vision and color scheme and brought it to life on the day-of!
I would highly recommend Glass Slipper Gourmet to my family and friends!

Glass Slipper Gourmet and sweet Kelly O'Brien....WHAT would our reception have been without her? I was thrilled from the first moment I met Kelly! Both my husband and I are very creative and we felt that every time we met with a cake vendor, it was their vision that mattered and not ours. NOT WITH KELLY! She was so excited with our vision and immediately began to connect with that vision. She came to our home to provide the cake tasting opportunity, which made her feel like part of our family. Even more important....the cakes were delicious and our guests made comments even weeks after the reception. And an added bonus? We froze the top of our cake and each month on the 28th, we take out a piece of the cake to celebrate. The cake is JUST as delicious after six months in the freezer. I truly believe that Kelly is the right choice for any couple who wants an amazing cake (or cakes!), a peaceful experience, and satisfied guests! :)

Glass Slipper was the BEST! She came to our house, brought a number of different samples (about 20 in all), and I wrote her a check right on the spot. Her prices were so affordable and her cakes yummy. We gave her a picture of what we wanted and she replicated it with ease. We met with 5 other cake designers and none could create the taste that Glass Slipper did. I knew immediately, that this was the cake (designer) for us! We love Glass Slipper Gourmet!

Kelly was amazing! She actually came to my home for a tasting! Her cake samples were fresh and numerous and delicious! She came with magazines and books, most importantly she was easy to work with and was able to listen to what I had in mind and transform it into the perfect cake! She even sent me a digital image of what the cake would look like! When I saw the cake the day of the wedding it was everything I had hoped for and it tasted amazing! I would definetly recommend her to everytone!

Glass Slipper Gourmet was great! The cake tasted amazing and looked beautiful. She was able to listen to what my husband and I wanted (and we wanted two completely different things) and design a cake that we both loved.

Our cake turned out to be everything I had asked for thanks to Kelly. She really knows how to bake an amazing cake and design it so it is also aesthetically gorgeous. She has SO many flavors and they are all her own creations. She was very professional, timely, and even offered to help with my candy bar cupcake display! She went above and beyond and the cake was delish!
