  • How much are your wedding cakes?
    Thank you for your consideration in hiring us to be the sugar artists for your wedding or event. Each wedding cake created is intricately designed, baked with gourmet ingredients, and all the little details are hand crafted over numerous days, even weeks to provide you with an absolute perfect edible center piece that reflects the vision for your wedding or event. Due to this lengthy and detailed customization rates will differ per client as the complexity of design and flavor combinations vary. The more intricate the design and the more complex the flavor choices the higher the cost will be. In order to provide you with a rough estimate of cost our base rate for wedding cakes start at $6-8 per serving. Many of the cakes in my portfolio range from $6-$13 per serving after all details are completed.
