HOw it works

Expertly crafted artisan baked goods are all we do at M Cake Design. We want the entire process from start to finish to be easy! To do that, we want you to know exactly what to expect while you’re working with us! 

How do I get started?

Once you have a date for your special event, it’s time for you to send me an email. Please provide me with all of the details of your event and your requests. This allows us to set up a consultation and cake tasting which will give you the opportunity to taste our products and meet with me in person. During this meeting, I will work with you to design your wedding cake, select your flavors, and provide you with a price quote. 
The fee for cake tasting and consultation is $45 for 2 people ($15 for each additional person). We will credit $20 back to you towards your order when you decide to book your cake with us.  

When should i reserve my cake?

Once you have the main style components of your wedding selected we’d be happy to meet with you. This can happen as early as 9-12 months prior to your wedding. Our high wedding season is between April and October. Our availability is based on the complexity and quantity of orders we receive. We do reach capacity and encourage you to complete your contract and place your deposit as soon as possible. 

Celebration cakes require a minimum 4 week booking notice. We will do our best to accommodate short term notice request, but may have to refuse the order based on our availability. 

WHat will my investment be?

All of our cakes are priced depending on intricacy, materials, and the time it takes to decorate. Typically the more detailed or intricate a cake looks, the more time it takes to decorate which carries over to a higher price. Prices vary based on the tiers, complexity and intricacy of the design. Beautiful details such as our sugar florals require additional time and expert skill, therefore our pricing will be relevant to the design. 

can you copy my favorite cake design?

Each of my designs is the result of my personal creativity. While just like you, I draw inspiration from the designs of others, I do not replicate exact designs or copy another cake designer’s work. I will use these images to create a custom design sketch. This sketch is part of our agreement and can be edited. 

can you put flowers on my cake?

One of our specialties is creating sugar flowers and piping intricate buttercream flowers. Buttercream flowers are completely edible and beautiful in their own unique way. Based on the selected design and your budget, we’ll discuss which type of flowers and how many you’d like to add. Sugar flowers are not entirely edible, but they can very easily become a memento of your special event. Sugar flowers have a wide variety of pricing based on their complexity and size.

If you are looking for real flowers on your cake, we will discuss adding these from your florist and arranging them on the cake at the time of delivery. 

do you offer other flavors?

If you would like to explore flavors that are not currently on our menu, please feel free to make this request during our consult. We love trying new things and would love to bring your flavor profile to life. While we cannot guarantee a nut free environment, we are also happy to discuss dietary and allergy requests. 

We love baking for you over and over again! We can’t wait to be the sweet ending to your special event.
