Wedding frequently asked questions
Are you a licensed, health-department certified, and insured bakery?
Yes, we are a licensed and insured retail bakery in the state of Oklahoma. We hold licenses from the City of Tulsa and the State of Oklahoma and are certified by the Tulsa County Health Department. This is an important distinction on such an important day!
How early do I need to order a wedding cake?
Wedding season can span from April to October with the peak months being May, June, September, and October. If you are getting married in one of the months mentioned you should plan ahead at least 4-6 months to ensure you get your date reserved.
Can I reserve my wedding date?
Yes, you can reserve your date by putting down a deposit based on the price estimate created for you. One half of the total amount is required to get your name on the calendar. A portion of this deposit is non-refundable. You do not need to know all the details of your design at this time but everything must be finalized 2 weeks prior to the event date.
Do you deliver?
We are happy to deliver and set-up your cake! Our delivery pricing starts at $40.00 and considers mileage and ease of access (stairs, elevators, parking, etc.). We gladly accommodate certain Holiday weekends and Sunday orders regardless if our bakery is typically closed. However, a service fee starting at $50.00 will be added to the order. Please inquire about specific dates.
Are your cakes frozen?
Yes…HOWEVER, that is because of the nature of how our cake is made, not because we want to stockpile cakes for wedding season consumption. 99% of the wedding cakes we create are out of our Bavarian Cream Cheesecake and freezing it is part of the production process. The frozen nature of our cakes can present a serving challenge, but when prepared it is rarely an issue. We send serving instructions with each cake delivery to ensure you are aware of the best way to serve the cake.
How many servings of cake do I need at my wedding?
The equation we use is to order 1 serving of the bride’s cake for everyone and half of that total for the groom’s cake. The theory is that the groom’s cake is a different flavor and half the people will try both cakes. This is simply a starting point and we are happy to discuss each wedding specifically.
Will there be any additional charges?
All additional charges will be disclosed as details are provided and may not be in the initial price quote if not yet communicated. These include but are not limited to: elaborate custom designs, additional layers, icing flowers, custom shapes, ombre, hand-painted designs, airbrush, and custom cake flavors.
How can I stay budget-friendly with my cake order for a larger wedding?
A popular option for brides with large guest lists is to order a smaller ‘display cake’ and then have side cakes for the additional servings. We are happy to discuss all these options with you…just let us know you are interested in this scenario!
What is a side cake?
Side cakes are a great way to supplement your wedding cake! They can be used to add a dietary option, different flavors, or increased servings. Side cakes should be ordered in the sizes listed, one flavor per size. side cakes are typically not displayed with the main cake and are meant to be served from the kitchen. If customization is desired, additional charges may apply. Additional delivery charges apply.
When do you deliver the cake?
We deliver 2-3 hours prior to the start of the event. the exact delivery time will depend on event variables and delivery schedule availability. If a certain time frame is needed, please be sure to communicate this need during the planning process.
Can I pick up my wedding cake?
Yes! There are certain factors that need to be considered, and we are happy to discuss them with you.
What if I want non-edible elements added to my cake?
Real Flowers | We suggest talking to your florist first. some flowers need special care and they are the experts! however, if you still need assistance, let us know!
Fake Flowers | We are happy to apply your fake flowers! this must be communicated ahead of time and additional charges may apply.
Cake Toppers | We can absolutely add your topper! there are some variables that can affect this task, so please communicate with us so we are all on the same page.
Do you have decorative cake stands available?

You may also use your own stand or one rented or purchased elsewhere. If using your own stand, please ensure the stand is the appropriate size and strong enough to support your cake. View Cake Stands
