INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Cookies, Cupcakes, Dessert Buffet, Fruit, 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?
No
Are you licensed by the state health department?
Yes
Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?
We offer one complimentary tasting at the time of order for tiered cakes that serve 50 people or more. We are a full service retail bakery so brides are welcome to come in anytime and purchase cake slices and/or cupcakes if they unsure about placing an order. We also offer tastings for our catering services as well. These consist of many of the offerings that we have in our cafe. In order to keep your costs down, we are unable to prepare your specific wedding menu for you at a tasting - but offer many referrals if you'd like to chat with someone that has used our services.
What are your tasting hours?
During Michigan's wedding season - May 1 through November 1 , we schedule appointments Tuesday - Thursday 7a - 4:30p only so we can give our full attention to the production of the cakes going out that week. During the off season, we take appointments Tuesday through Saturday. However, Saturday appointments go VERY quickly so schedule early! We typically are scheduling appointments 2-3 weeks out.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
We price tiered cakes by the slice - the minimum cost for any tiered cake is $150 regardless of how small. The price per serving is based on the batter, filling and decorations. The cost of a wedding cake is based more on the design time than the sugar, flour and butter.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
Yes, we include your top tier in the number of servings offered and give the bride the choice to save or serve the top tier. This information is then communicated to the caterer / person slicing the cake.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
All of our designs are custom - brides are welcome to bring photos for inspiration, however, each cake inevitably represents the brides unique tastes and requests.
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
We offer fresh fruit seasonally - the recipe's used, are the original Ryke's Family formulas that have been in place since 1937. We are known for our amazing butter cream icing, bavarian cream filling and vanilla cream cake.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
We work on various parts of the cakes throughout the entire week of the wedding. We are completely focused on making sure that the cakes are moist and structurally sound. We know our product and have run many quality tests to ensure the very best looking and tasting cakes for our brides and grooms.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
We will schedule 160 hours of work.... we have 4 people 100% dedicated to building and decorating our wedding cakes - we base our production on the amount of design time estimated for each cake. It typically ranges from 10 to 14 cakes depending on the level of difficulty.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Absolutely! We work very closely with all the florists in our area and are close communication with them regarding delivery times, what flowers are needed for the cake and who will place them.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
We offer many cake pedestal stands (ranging from more modern to vintage), plateaus, floating cake stands, and cupcake trees.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Yes, we offer delivery and the cost is based on a calculation of time and mileage. We deliver to a 60 mile radius of Muskegon - to the North, South and East.

Rykes was beyond fantastic to do business with. I was planning this wedding long distance and on a very short timeframe (~2 months). Everyone at rykes was super friendly, helpful and accommodating. Cake was gorgeous, exactly as ordered, delicious and set up perfectly.

We knew where our cake was going to come from before anything other detail in the wedding process. As a person from Muskegon I have had most bakery items come from Ryke's. So it was only natural to have my wedding cake come from there. After all these years I've never been disappointed. My husband, a Ryke's convert, put his foot down on this matter as well. It was a done deal.
