Do you make cakes for other happy events or just for weddings?
I don’t want to order enough cake to feed all the guests at my wedding. Is that okay?
Why should I pay for a wedding cake no one’s going to eat?
Do you make faux (or fake) wedding cakes?
Do you deliver to far, far away places?

Oh my God, Erica! You’re like a creative genius! Where does it come from?
We think every happy occasion calls for a cake! We love making wedding cakes, but we also make fabulous cakes for bridal showers, birthdays, bachelorette parties, anniversaries, retirement parties, and graduations. We deliver our cakes all of the north east, from MA to NY, and of course CT. Keep in mind that we do have a $150 minimum.
We don’t advise it. We find that not only do guests eat our wedding cake, they ask for seconds! Where most bakeries use shortening, we use real butter. Here’s why: Shortening has a higher melting point, so it won’t melt in your mouth. Ever get that greasy film on the roof of your mouth after eating a bakery product? That’s shortening. (Bakeries use it because it’s a lot cheaper than butter.) Real butter has a lower melting point and is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We also make everything from scratch, so our cakes are extra delicious. Clients who are considering ordering less wedding cake servings almost always change their minds once they taste our cake.
You shouldn’t! But here’s the thing: people actually eat–no, devour–our cake. Most other wedding cakes are made using inferior ingredients like shortening and gloppy, cornstarchy fillings. All of our cakes are made using melt-in-your mouth butter, made-from-scratch recipes, and high-quality ingredients, all of which make our cakes taste quite delectable.
Yes…and no. We want to have both creative control and control over ingredients. The thing is, taste is really important to us. Here are three scenarios:
Scenario 1: You want to use one of our cakes for display but serve a wedding cake purchased somewhere else.
Unfortunately, we don’t want our name associated with a cake someone else made. Our hard-earned reputation is on the line! In this scenario, we won’t create a faux cake.
Scenario 2: Our cake is just outside your budget.
We want to work within your budget to create a wedding cake that you love. Sometimes, it is more cost effective for us to create both a faux cake and a serving tier to be kept in the back and served to guests. In this case, we will create a faux cake.
Scenario 3: You want a five-tier wedding cake but only have 65 guests.
For 65 guests, you would need only a three tier cake, but your dream wedding cake has five-tiers. We will provide as many faux tiers as needed to create the wedding cake you’ve always wanted.
Yes! We’ve deliver wedding cakes all over New England from Boston, MA to Long Island, NY.
Of course, with its beautiful mansions, scenic coastline, and proximity to New York, Connecticut is the ideal place for a wedding. We enjoy working with fabulous venues all over the state, from Fairfield county to northeastern CT, including the New Haven Lawn Club, The Eolia Mansion, The Penfield Pavillion, The Inn at Longshore, and The Westport Inn, to name just a few.
Absolutely! Just ask. (It’s even okay if you’re not ordering your wedding cake from us.)
We don’t recommend it. Cakes–especially multi-tiered wedding cakes–are tricky business and can be surprisingly heavy. If you do choose to pick up your wedding cake, know that we are not responsible once it leaves the premises. And remember, there are only two people who can be trusted to deliver a wedding cake: the one who made it and the one who paid for it.
We share our commercial kitchen with The Soup Girl. Her retail shop is located at the same space as our consultation studio at 1242 Whitney Avenue in Hamden, CT, and we sell our cupcakes on a daily basis at her retail shop. Our cakes are not available on a retail basis as they are all custom order. To order a wedding cake, we request that you set up an appointment for a consultation.
Okay, no one actually asked this. Erica just wanted to put it on the list. Really, though, Erica’s mom is an artist and always fostered her creativity. Thanks mom. I love you.
