I specialise in custom designed cakes meant to dazzle and delight your guests, from both an artistic and culinary standpoint. Because every one of my cakes are custom designed, pricing is highly variable. The best way to get pricing information on a cake for your next event is to call us and discuss your ideas with me. Below are a few guidelines that may help answer some of your preliminary questions.
I use only the highest quality ingredients available to ensure that my clients get the moist, delicious cake that they crave. Because all of my cakes are made from scratch and custom designed, I have a $225 EC minimum on all cake orders.
All of my pricing is based on a formula of slice count and labor time. With this said, labor time is generally the variable that holds more weight in the pricing equation. Many clients ask what they can get for $225 EC, but it really depends on what they are looking for. I can make a small cake with a lot of decorations on it, or a large cake with very simple decorations on it for the same price. Because the decorating time is priced hourly, I will need to flush out a design with you in order to be able to give you a quote on a cake.
As a general rule, 3-D cakes are more expensive due to the amount of time involved in carving, icing, and decorating complex shapes. These cakes also often require extra internal support structures that must be built and planned for ahead of time. 2-D cakes also require carving time, but because they lie flat on the cake board, there are generally fewer labor hours involved in their execution.
