1. How do I order a wedding cake?
Please email us to see if your special date is available on our calendar. At this time you may schedule an appointment for a consultation with accompanying complimentary cake tasting. We request a $50.00 non-refundable deposit to reserve your date on our calendar. Full 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 and delivery charges. Buttercream iced cakes are priced starting at $6.00 per serving; rolled fondant covered cakes at $6.50 per serving.
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. 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 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. Fondant is available in an extensive range of colors and in three delicious flavors: vanilla, buttercream and chocolate. It is also used to create ruffles and embossed textures and can be painted and molded into shapes. It is a good icing choice when cakes need to be transported many miles. While fondant is still delicate, it’s much more stable than most frostings and buttercreams and will hold up to more stress. Layers of buttercream, fillings and cake are safely protected underneath.
