Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How early should I place my order?
A. As soon as you can! We aren't kidding. There are times, especially in wedding season April - May and September - October when we get really busy and might not be able to accommodate your order. We ask for at least 6 months notice for most wedding cakes, and 2 weeks notice for our smaller custom cakes. Of course, you can always call to ask us with shorter notice. If were not booked we can make it happen.
*We do carry pre-made cakes in the café daily for pick up.
Q. What is fondant?
A.Today, fondant is a sugar-based frosting that is rolled on top of a cake. Its hard to describe the taste but I would say the closest thing would be the filling of an OREO cookie, its sweet and fudgy and has the consistency of Play-Doh. There are hundreds of different types of fondant out there. We use fondant mainly for outdoor weddings to prevent the cake from melting or for structural purposes on sculpted cakes. If you keep it in the refrigerator, it stays soft and gooey like it's supposed to be. If it sits out for a few days, the water evaporates out of it, and it gets hard. We love the stuff because you can make it into most any color and shape.
Q. I have a design that I love, Can you make it?
A. We will make just about anything.
Q. Are your cakes frozen?
A. Only if they are based off the movie lol! No, we do not freeze our cakes.
Q. I am gluten-intolerant. Do you offer Gluten free cakes?
A. We offer a Gluten free cakes, which can be a top tier on a wedding cake, or as a separate cake for a celebration. However we cannot guarantee the cake will be completely gluten-free, as flour can always travel in the air, we do our very best to keep our gluten free cakes gluten free.
Q. I am allergic to nuts.
A. How allergic are you exactly? We can always make a cake without nuts. If you are highly allergic to nuts just let us know, and we will make sure not to eat peanut butter sandwiches for lunch that day.
Q. Do you make egg less cakes?
A. Yes we do! Most of our cakes and fillings can become egg less.
Q. Do you offer Vegan cake options.
A. Yes we do! We offer many of our cake flavors in a vegan alternative. Our signature Italian buttercream unfortunately contains eggs so we use a vegan American buttercream alternative.
Q. How do I schedule my wedding design and tasting consultation?
A. We schedule appointments Tuesday-Wednesday and Sundays from 11am to 5pm. Please call us at 817-980-4542, or email us to schedule yours. Most brides come to us 4-6 months before their wedding. We always ask for at least 2 week notice for any other specialty cake. Please, please, please don't wait until two days before you need a cake to call us. We will always do our best, but sometimes we just can't take another order.
Q. How should I prepare for my wedding consultation?
A. We ask that you find photos, clippings, stalk Pinterest, of any cake designs you like, your colors, your flowers, your dress, anything you have can be used as inspiration. If we have an idea of the style of cake you like, it’s much easier to create a cake designed just for you! Also come hungry as you will get to try 8 of our top flavor pairings, it might help to hit the gym the day before as we don't skimp on the butter and sugar in this bakery.
Q. How many servings of cake do I need at my wedding?
A. Most people will have one piece of cake. Some people, like us, will go back and have 2 pieces. We understand there are a small number of people out there that will not have any cake, we've never met these people, but we are assured they exist...but probably not in Texas. We always suggest going a little over your guest count to be safe and if you have a few slices left over you can always have some the next day with a cup of coffee or tea.
Q. When will you deliver my cake?
A. We plan to deliver cakes two hours prior to your reception or start of your event. We deliver and set up the cake before your guests arrive.
Q. What else do you guys make besides cake?
A. Excellent question! While we specialize in specialty cakes, we also offer among other things, cupcakes, mini-cupcakes, truffles, cake balls, pies, tarts, mini-desserts and music lessons. Okay, that last one isn't entirely true.
Q. What flavors do you offer?
A. We are an all-scratch bakery, so we can make almost any flavor you like. We have a list of favorites and popular flavors here, but we are always coming up with new ones, let us know if you have something in mind? If you need anything from Pomegranate to Butterscotch we have a flavor just for you. Your always welcome to call and ask!
