Wedding Cake FAQ

How much cake do we need?

If you would like your wedding cake to be a dessert portion then you will need at the very least, one portion for each guest. If you are serving your cake in addition to other deserts then you may prefer cocktail sized portions. In our experience, too much cake is a delightful problem in comparison to some guests going without.

Do you provide cake decorating ribbons?

We have a small selection of ribbons but we prefer that you provide your own so you can have exactly what you want. We request that the ribbon be delivered to us at least a week in advance of your wedding date.

Who provides flowers for my wedding cake?

We leave the fresh flowers for you to order through your florist so they match your wedding flowers. We request that you bring us the flowers the day before.

Are your cakes nut/flour/dairy free?

Our cakes are made without nuts (unless requested) however nuts are an ingredient that we use in our bakery. For that reason we cannot guarantee our cakes to those with severe allergies. The chocolate symphony cake can be made flourless upon request. All our cakes have dairy in them.

Do you deliver?

With in the Greater Victoria area, delivery and set up of your cake is 50$. In most situations we do not deliver to private homes or community halls. Your cake is available for pick-up at our shop. As we are closed on Sunday, all Sunday cakes must be picked up at our shop on Saturday.

Do you rent cake stands?

We have a selection of cake and cupcake stands available for rent. A credit card number is required for cake stand rentals and metal cake support platforms.
