1. How do I order a wedding cake?
Please email us to see if your date is available on our calendar. Also include information regarding the anticipated number of guests, venue and basic style of cake you envision. Due to Covid concerns, all cake styling will be accomplished via email. Complimentary tasting samples for pick-up can be arranged for those who have booked their date. We request a $50 non-refundable deposit to reserve your date on our calendar. Final payment must be received one month before the wedding.
2. What is the cost of your wedding cakes?
All of our cakes are custom designed. Their cost is a reflection of variations in flavor, fillings and icings, the detail of the design, the number of servings and delivery charges. Buttercream iced cakes start at $7.50 per serving. Sugar flowers typically add $75 - $150 to the cost of the cake.
3. Do you place fresh flowers on your cakes?
No, we do not. It is highly recommended that realistic sugar (gumpaste) flowers be used on your cake if called for by the design, instead of fresh blooms. Flowers provided by many florists have been sprayed with pesticides and residues may be harmful. Many flowers are naturally toxic if ingested. Bacteria grows on flower stems submerged in water as they await placement on a cake. And then of course, sugar flowers do not wilt in the dry Montana summer heat and can be preserved indefinitely as mementos of your special day.
4. Are your sugar flowers available for purchase on their own?
Yes! If you wish to adorn a homemade or bakery cake with sugar flower accents, we can provide them, either a single flower or two or a multi-bloom cascade for a wedding cake that will match your bouquets.
5. What is the difference between buttercream icing and rolled fondant?
We often ice the outside of your cake with American Buttercream as it is the most stable option when cakes are displayed for several hours unrefrigerated in the summer heat. Buttercream can also be highly flavored with a multitude of additives to create delicious fillings. It can be piped from decorating tips and manipulated in many fashions to create interesting textures and colors as a background for beautiful blooms on your cake.
Rolled fondant is a sweet icing dough that is rolled out like a pie crust and draped over your cake to provide a smooth, polished canvas for decorating details. It is a good icing choice when cakes need to be transported many miles. Layers of buttercream, fillings and cake are safely protected underneath.
