~ What are kitchen cakes?
A kitchen cake is minimally decorated and has the same flavor and filling as the wedding cake, but is served from the kitchen instead, as the caterers cut it during the meal. It is then served alongside the “real” wedding cake. Kitchen cakes are only available when a tiered bridal cake is not enough. Not available with orders less 100 servings.
~ How big is a serving size of wedding cake?
Servings are industry-standardized sizes of 1 ½ inch wide. Final outcome of servings depends on the experience of cake cutter and sharpness of cutting utensils.

Check with your caterer or venue, some of them will provide this service free of charge while others charge a small fee.
~ Can I make changes after I order the cake?
Changes in size, flavors and decorations can be made up to four weeks before the wedding. A lot of planning and purchasing of supplies and equipment go into preparing for your cake. We are not able to make any changes to the final order after the four-week deadline. If changes are significant an amendment to contract or new contract will be necessary.
