We can create any flavor profile that you can imagine. Check out our flavors page for a start.

Since I’m a one person shop I do get booked pretty quickly. I book only one wedding cake a day so a 6 month to a year lead time is not unreasonable. For other cakes 3 to 4 weeks in advance is recommended.

Fill out the contact form with your details or call us directly to arrange for a tasting/consultation appointment for wedding cakes only. These appointments typically last about an hour.

Since I make all my cakes fresh for each tasting, we do charge $30 for a tasting which covers up to 4 attendees.

We offer complimentary photos taken during tastings; customized sugar flowers and cake toppers; personalized carved figures.

We are located in the Ashley Glen subdivision in Bealeton, VA. See the map on the contact us page.

To hold your date, a retainer payment of half the cost is required.

Non-wedding cakes can be picked up with a signed disclaimer form. A flat space in the transport vehicle is recommended (seats are typically slanted and not flat). Be mindful that you have a cake in the car so limit sudden starts and stops and take the sharp turns very slowly.

Yes and logo cakes too.

Pesticides are often used on flowers. I can add fresh flowers to a cake using straws and covered platters to protect the cake from direct contact with the flowers.

Fondant is a sugar paste that is rolled and applied to the outside of a cake to provide a smoother beautiful sleek look and is necessary for some designs. I make my own marshmallow, white chocolate fondant which is rolled thin and tastes great. I can also make butter cream look pretty smooth if you prefer.

We do not charge extra for different flavors on each tier.
