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, Pickup, Tastings
What dietary needs can you accommodate?
Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Organic, Vegan
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 offer private tastings of our classic flavor of White, Vanilla, Lemon and Almond. This will give you an idea of how moist and tasty the cakes are. If you'd like to try a specialty flavor, there is a small fee.
What are your tasting hours?
By appointment only.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Price is determined by amount of servings, design and flavors chosen. Our prices start at $3.50 per serving for classic flavor cake and simple design of scrolls or dots.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
I offer a free 6" cake on your first anniversary, so that it is fresh. The top tier is served. If you prefer to freeze your anniversary cake for a year, I provide a box for it to be packaged in.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
I offer custom designed cakes. If you have a picture of cake you'd like, I can copy it as well.
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
I use the finest ingredients available from organic eggs to imported chocolate and fondant.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
Depending on what time the reception is, I bake two or three days in advance. This gives the cakes time to settle to prevent bulging once icing is applied.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
I limit the wedding cakes to 4 per weekend to assure attention to each cake and bride.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Yes. Certain flowers are non-toxic, but still need to be pesticide free. Your florist can provide these and I am happy to help in any way.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
Most receptions sites and restaurants do provide tables for the cake as well as cake stands.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Delivery fee depends on location. Average delivery fee in the Metro-Atlanta averages $50.00.

We ordered our wedding cake from here. It turned out beautiful. We wanted to incorporate our hobby into the cake as we felt the cake needed to describe us, and tell a story of us. We also wanted a custom flavor that is not on the "typical" flavor list and they made us a small sample cake (for a small fee) to try ahead of time to make sure we wanted to go with it. It was right on. The staff there is nice and the gentleman that sketched the cake for me was very talented. The cake was delicious and it looked beautiful on the cake table. It was delivered on time to our venue with no issues.

They were wonderful to work with and provided a cake that was exactly what we wanted. For the groom's cake, I wanted it to match a set of silver cufflinks I bought for my husband as a wedding gift, and they did a great job. The flavors were delicious and we were happy with our cakes!

I can't say enought good things about Maria and the staff at Once Upon A Cake.

I was put at ease immediately watching how much fun they were having not only
working but kidding around with each other. The tasting and consultation went
smoothly and Robert did the sketch according to my ideas.

The cake arrived on time and was DELICIOUS. Not a piece was left. We had white chocolate vanilla bean with cream cheese filling.

Would highly recommend!

Our wedding cake was not only beautiful but absolutely delicious. We chose a Lemon Cake (which was so moist & tasted like vanilla infused lemon) & had a Raspberry & Lemon Curd filling and then had a fondant icing on top (which was not your typical bland fondant, but you can actually taste a little vanilla & some citrus in it). It was sooo good! Every single guest asked where we ordered our cake.

We first found Once Upon A Cake on a preferred vendors list from our venue (the Alpharetta Athletic Club) & are so glad we did. We first met with Robert & had a tasting and they had us at the first bite. After our consultation & order, they kindly sent us home with their awesome cupcakes (If you are near Alpharetta, definitely go get some!). They were great throughout the process & Robert was also a big help with the design & we were so thrilled at the final result.

To sweeten the deal(pun intended), not only are the cakes & cupcakes fantastic but the wedding cake prices are probably the best in town (they even include a complimentary 1st anniversary cake, so no eating a horrible, frozen, year old wedding cake topper).

I wish I could give them 6.0 all around! Not only was our wedding cake stunning and more than I ever imagined it could look like... it was DELICIOUS! I can't even count the number of people who commented on how good the cake was at our reception.... some even had multiple pieces! I will definitely be using them in the future for ALL of my cake needs!
