How far in advance should I book my wedding/event cake order?
It is recommend that you book your wedding cake at least 6 – 12 months in advance to insure availability. If you have other wedding elements determined, i.e. venue, invitations, florals, we can use these as inspiration to design a custom cake specifically for your event. For large celebration events, 4 – 6 months notice should suffice, baring availability.
A $250 non-refundable retainer is required to reserve your event date. This includes a complimentary cake tasting gift box as well. A second installment is due 60 days prior to your event. The final and remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your event. Your order is not confirmed until we have received your signed contract and non-refundable retainer.
In light of the current pandemic, Cake Tasting Giftboxes are provided periodically throughtout the year. Following your cake tasting, we will schedule a virtual consultation to begin designing your wedding cake! You can check the upcoming cake tasting date and reserve your tasting gift box here.
We understand the need to just want cake but a significant amount of our time is used in creating wedding and large event cakes. However, we do offer cake sample gift boxes periodically which are open to everyone. You can reserve one here.
Here at A. Wilson Cakes, the simple ingredients of flour, sugar, butter and eggs, come together to make beautiful, edible art. This artistry takes a significant amount of time. Each cake design is unique and priced individually based on design, scale, and the total time invested from start to finish. We currently have a minimum order of $800 per order. Pricing usually averages between $15 – $10 per serving depending on the design.
Yes we do! All wedding cakes include delivery and setup within a 30 mile radius. Greater distances are determined per cake order. To insure safe delivery, cakes taller than 2 tiers in height, require delivery by our cake studio.
