Pricing and Contact

Pricing

A flat pricing structure is very difficult. I take into account the complexity of the design. It may make a cake for 50 more costly than one for 100. Many cakes take 100 to 200 hours to design, engineer, and create; some even more. Most creations run between $7.50 and $20.00 per person. When we discuss your budget and desires, I will do my best to create a design both beautiful and cost effective. Fulfilling your dream is my ultimate goal.

The Consultation

For a first contact an e-mail or note is just fine but I am a one on one person and I would like to speak directly, by phone, with an interested party. This gives me the personal contact to discuss your desires for your special event. The size, style, tone, flair, and color of your special day are all so important. At this time the information you give me will help me to give an estimated price range for your cake. If we are on the same page, I will pencil your day on my calendar and set an appointment for a face to face, through mail or e-mail to show you some designs. These designs will be within your price range, and we will discuss if I am coming close to your request. Upon your acceptance of a design I will ink your day into my book after receiving a 50% deposit. The balance is due two weeks prior to the event.

My calendar fills up quickly. I do all the work personally and there are only so many hours in the day. This art form cannot be rushed. So book early; two to three months ahead at least.

Taste Test

If a taste test is necessary, a $75.00 fee to bake especially for you is payable prior to our meeting.

Delivery Fee

I personally deliver most of my cakes. It is a must for those that are truly complex. After many many hours of work the creation must be set on display properly and with loving care. My fee is levied only if the destination is more than one hour from my home in Dutchess County. The cost depends on the location and travel difficultly. Out of state poses no problem that cannot be overcome.
