INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Cookies, Cupcakes, Dessert Buffet, Groom's Cake
What additional services do you provide?
Consultations, On-site Delivery, On-site Setup, Tastings
What dietary needs can you accommodate?
Lactose Free
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?
We offer private tastings by appointment and walkin when possible.
What are your tasting hours?
Tasting hours are the same as the shop, Tuesday-Friday 10-6 and Saturday 9-2. Out-of-hours appointments available upon request.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
We price by the slice/serving, starting at $4.00 per serving.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
We give the couple two options:
 1. Eat the entire cake on their wedding date and return in a year for a free 6" replacement cake, or
 2. Preserve the top layer on the day of the wedding and serve the guests from the remaining tiers.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
We offer custom cake designs using both buttercream and fondant as well as a few predesigned styles.
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
We use fresh fruit when the cake is to include them.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
Our schedule is to have the cake baked a day in advance to allow time to decorate and any emergency that may arise. So for a Saturday wedding, the cake is baked by 9am on Friday and decorated that afternoon and stored overnight for Saturday delivery. Again this extra window of time can accomodate unexpected events that are out of our control (e.g., power outage)
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
To be comfortable, we book no more than 3-4 wedding cakes on a weekend to allow time for each.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Yes, we can work with a florist to determine what flowers will work best and coordinate the day of delivery if flowers are needed for the cake.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
We rent cake stands, cupcake stands, cake plateaus (silver or gold stands), fountains, stairs, etc.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
We offer delivery. Delivery within a 5 mile radius of the bakery is included. There is additional delivery fees for after-hours (3:00 pm) delivery and Sunday delivery. Our average delivery fee is $25-$50.

Marcia was awesome to work with! She sat down with us to discuss our ideas and options. The end result was a beautiful, delicious cake, she even decorated the cake with flowers that I provided her. We had a caramel apple wedding cake that all the guests raved about! We can't wait to cut into our anniversary cake! Thank you!

For our wedding, I had planned on using a friend of a friend to bake our cake, as she is an independent baker and has made several wedding cakes for large wedding parties in the past, and has a lot of experience. A few months before the wedding when we met with the venue they advised us that the cake has to be provided by an insured and licensed baker, which our friend unfortunately was not. Panicked, I did a quick Google search for bakeries in MD and found this bakery since I live in Columbia. I spoke with Marcia and explained the situation to her, and she squeezed us in the same day to meet with her. She gave me an estimate over the phone which was only $5 more than what we had expected to pay originally. The estimate she provided included a 3 tier cake and a sheet cake big enough for 150 people. We chose to have our cake decorated very simply in all white with swiss dots, but she is able to do more elaborate designs. We had the red velvet cake and the butter cake with strawberry filling and they are both delicious! Our guests loved the cake; some people even ate up to 4 pieces! We still have some left over which we have chosen to freeze and save, but we are still taking a piece here and there because the cake is so good. Marcia also sends a free cake on our 1 year anniversary, which I know a lot of bakeries do, but is still a nice touch. I actually forgot to pay her 2 weeks in advance, called her up, and she allowed me to pay over the phone without a problem. Marcia was extremely easy to work with, and very warm and friendly which made us comfortable with her right away. I would definitely recommend working with this bakery for brides on a budget but who want a great tasting cake! We will probably go back there to get cupcakes as well.

I used this company for my 30th birthday cake a couple years ago, it was the most beautiful done cake I had seen! I wanted a "Wicked" the musical themed cake, and the cake they came up with was truly so beautiful I wish we would not have had too cut it. Well when it came time for my wedding, I could think of no other place to go for that. Again, they did exactly as I asked, and it far exceeded my expectations. It was a 3 layer cake, and was absolutely stunning. We wanted simple, but beautiful, and that is exactly what we got. The owner was even kind enough to deliver the cake to our reception hall herself! We love all of them, and will use them for every special occasion from now on. They have gained a lifetime couple of customers for sure!

This bakery is awesome! I was able to have two flavors of cake (chocolate and lemon), and the bakers were able to replicate a beautiful cake I'd seen in a magazine. The prices are very reasonable, in my opinion, and on the wedding day, the cake was moist and delicious, and very pretty!
