Q. How far of notice should I order my cake?
Wedding Cakes: Clients are encouraged to schedule a consultation as soon as an event date has been set. Normally five – nine months out is ideal to save your date for a wedding cake, but please inquire at any time and I will tell you Cakes By Chantal’s availability and schedule your consultation. Currently booking 2017-2018 weddings and weekends do fill up! A 50% deposit (non-refundable) is required to secure your date, 50% of the balance is due 1 month before your event date. Of course, special situations arise and short planning is needed, just contact me and let’s see what we can do!
Event Cakes & Cupcakes: For event and celebration cakes, three to four weeks in advance is all that is needed. A 50% (non-refundable) deposit is required to secure your date, 50% of the balance is due 1 week prior to the event date. Last minute orders can sometimes be fulfilled, but selections and flavors may be limited, and a rush fee of$25 will be charged. The key is “the soonest you can give a notice the better”.
Q. I saw a photo of a cake that I love. Can you recreate it?
If you saw an image of a cake that you fell in love with, please bring a photo with you to your consultation or email. I am able to recreate the overall feel of the design, but not the exact cake. Cakes By Chantal L.L.C believes every client should have a custom cake designed for them. Your cake should be special for you!
Q. What if I order my wedding cake and it’s less than two months away?
There is a rush fee of $150 if your wedding cake is ordered less than two months of your wedding day in addition to your wedding cake.
Q. What do I need to bring to our cake consultation?
During our meeting, I will develop a custom cake design that embodies the full vision you have in mind for your event. Please bring anything that you would like to incorporate into your design and/or is the inspiration behind your event. I can pull inspiration from invitations, centerpieces, decorations, bouquets, venue, theme, heirloom, or dress!
