WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I am located in Coral Gables (Miami), Florida.
DO YOU DELIVER? IF SO, HOW FAR?
Yes! I currently offer delivery within Miami Dade County for $20. If drop off is in Coral Gables, I will apply a delivery discount.
WHY DON'T YOU OFFER FONDANT CAKES?
As mentioned in my “about me” section, I love all sorts of baking, but the one thing that is most important to me is flavor. If you have the most beautiful cake in the world, but it tastes dry and horrible, what is the point? The fact that I am a flavor snob also brought about my loathe of fondant. There is no doubt fondant has its place, and you can’t deny it’s beautiful. However, it tastes horrible, it’s expensive, and 90% of people don’t even eat it. So I have spent my entire baking journey trying to perfect my buttercream skills. My goal is to make all my cakes as closely mimic the look of fondant without sacrificing the taste. I will of course use fondant accents and details, but I prefer not to fully cover a cake with fondant. Plus there is something nostalgic about buttercream frosting and childhood memories. I call that winning! Everything you see on my site is 100% buttercream covered cakes.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LAYER AND A TIER? I AM CONFUSED…
Layers are what make up a single tier. So layers are referring to the cake inside one tier.
HOW MANY LAYERS ARE IN A SINGLE TIER OF A CAKE?
In general my standard cakes are typically 4 layers tall with 3 layers of buttercream in between unless a design calls for something different. Barrel cakes are 6 layers tall and have a board in the middle, meaning it serves double the amount of people.
I CALLED YOU AND LEFT A MESSAGE. WHY HAVEN'T I HEARD BACK YET?
Text and email are always the best way to get ahold of me. So if you haven’t heard back, please try there. You will always get the quickest response that way. In addition to baking, I am also a full time photographer, so my plate is rather full and I don’t have a ton of time to sit down and talk on the phone. Usually, I work on admin in the middle of the night and it wouldn’t be an appropriate time to call people back. Please also keep in mind I won’t quote over the phone due to the fact I like to go over a cake design and really put into detail the cost of ingredients and supplies so I can properly quote. It’s hard to do that over the phone, as I don’t have set pricing. If you feel like you would like to chat about cake design, please feel free to email me and I would be more than happy to set up a phone call. Again, we can discuss details, but I will email you a quote after the phone call.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PLACE MY ORDER?
The earlier the better! All orders are first come first serve. Because I am the only baker, I can only take so many orders a week, so try to get in as early as possible to secure your date. I can get quite busy, so to avoid missing out, we recommend placing your order at least 4 weeks prior to your event. Typically, I need at the very least a weeks notice. However, if it’s a last minute request, please reach out and I can see what I can do!
DO YOU REQUIRE PAYMENT WHEN I PLACE AN ORDER?
Yes! Unfortunately, like with any business, we can experience no-shows. To avoid us being left out-of-pocket, we require a non-refundable 50% deposit on all orders. Your order and date are not secure until the deposit is received. The remaining balance is required to be paid in full a minimum of one week prior to delivery or collection of your desserts. If you book your order with less than a weeks notice, full non-refundable payment is due at time of booking.
