How far in advance should I book my wedding/event cake order?
It is recommend that you book your wedding cake at least 6 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 celebration events including bridal showers, birthdays, bachelorette parties, anniversaries, retirement parties, and graduations, a 4-8 week notice is usually sufficient time to secure your date.
A $300 or 30% (whichever is greater) non-refundable retainer is required to reserve your order. 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. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card. Cake orders placed with less than a 30 day notice and/or less than $300 require payment in full at the time of ordering and are non-refundable.
Absolutely! After we chat via phone or email, and either arrange a consultation and tasting appointment, or arrange a time for you to pick up a tasting box at your convenience. There is a non-refundable deposit of $50 due at least one week prior to the tasting appointment. For orders over $500, this deposit will be deducted from the final cost of your cake. You can contact me here to schedule an appointment.
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. Our custom designed cakes begin at $6.00 per serving for serving. Most of the designs you see in our portfolio, range between $7.00 – $10.00 per serving. Each cake design is priced individually based on the number of servings, the intricacy of the design, and the total time invested into cake from start to finish. We currently have a minimum order of $150 per order.
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.
