Frequently asked questions

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY WEDDING CAKE?


We are a family-owned boutique bakery and make a limited number of custom cakes each week so that we can give each one the care and attention it deserves. We book up 95%+ of the time. We accept bookings up to 12 months in advance, but can often make cakes with a few weeks’ notice during slower periods. March, April, May, October and Christmas/New Year’s are our busiest times, so if you are getting married during those time periods we recommend making your cake arrangements as soon as you have finalized your venue, colors and theme and have a reasonable estimate on the number of attendees.




DO YOU DELIVER?


Yes! We do deliver wedding/bridal orders a minimum of $350 for a fee based on the following up to 30 miles. Over 30 miles is quoted based on day, time and location: Friday (before 6pm) up to 10 miles $35 11-20 miles $50 21-30 miles $75 Saturday (10am-3pm) up to 10 miles - complimentary 11-20 miles $45 21-30 miles $65 *after 3pm quoted by time/mileage Sunday (12pm-3pm) up to 10 miles $95 11-20 miles $120 21-30 miles $140




DO YOU OFFER COMPLIMENTARY TASTINGS?


Tastings are $25, which will be applied to your order should you choose to book with us. Book minimum of $350 on the day of your tasting and the tasting is complimentary! You and a guest can try 3 flavors and 3 fillings in any combination before meeting with one of our cake artists. Our full list of flavors can be found on the menu & pricing tab. You can book your tasting via our website or by calling us 317.840.1562.




CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE SPECIAL DIETS? WHAT IF I AM NOT A CAKE PERSON?


We offer a limited menu in gluten free OR vegan options, but not gluten free AND vegan. We do our best to accommodate food allergies, however we do work with 6 of the top 8 food allergens (milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and wheat) and cannot guarantee that there will not be cross-contamination. We also offer cupcakes, cake balls, cookies, brownies, and a variety of other desserts.




I'M IN LOVE WITH YOUR CAKE. NOW WHAT?


First of all- YAY! We’re so excited to bake for your big day! The first thing you’ll want to do is place your deposit to reserve your date. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold your date based upon the size and design we discuss at your consultation, which is credited towards your final cake balance. We will re-confirm all the details two weeks prior to your wedding (you can make changes to the design, size increases or flavor up until then) and collect the remaining balance at that point.




HOW MUCH WILL MY WEDDING CAKE COST?


Every cake is different and is therefore individually priced. There are three main factors that impact the cost — the size, the flavors & fillings and the decoration. Our tiered wedding cakes are priced by the serving, starting at $4.75 per serving (wedding cake slices are generally 1” x 2” x 4”). The base price includes four layers of cake and three layers of filling inside each tier in one of our signature flavors with buttercream or fondant icing on the outside. Our cakes can be made in various size combinations to accommodate your number of guests, but as a reference point three tier cakes start at $292.50 (74 slices) and four tier cakes start at $513.50 (130 slices). An upcharge applies for premium flavors and fillings. Our full menu of flavors and fillings is available on our pricing & faq's page. The additional charge for the decoration is based upon the complexity of the design, the materials used and the time required to complete it. Generally speaking, buttercream designs and fresh flowers are less expensive than fondant work, intricate piping, metallic finishes or gumpaste and wafer paper flowers.




WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY TASTING?


Tastings last about one hour. You can try up to 3 different flavors of cake and 3 fillings in any combination and will leave with a cake design and price quote. Our tasting room holds up to six people, although most couples find it easiest to make decisions with no more than four attendees. Please feel free to bring pictures, color swatches, invitations or anything else that will serve as inspiration for the cake design.




CAN I PICK MY CAKE UP MYSELF?


Yes – in many cases you can safely transport your cake yourself (or have a friend or family member pick it up for you). In these cases, we will have the cake fully assembled and ready to go. Cake must be picked up during normal business hours. We will package it in a sturdy cardboard box the same size as the cakeboard on the bottom tier (so it doesn’t move around). The box will have a flap in the front, so once you arrive you just fold down the flap, slide the cake out, and set it in its place of honor. You will need a safe driver and a vehicle with a flat surface big enough to hold the cake (e.g. the cargo area in a station wagon, SUV, or minivan – sometimes the floorboards will also work for a smaller cake). Please note that the front seat is generally not truly flat and is not recommended for transporting your cake. The key to success is to keep the cake cool (turn on that AC!) and to avoid hard stops or sharp turns.




DO YOU PROVIDE CAKE STANDS?


We have a variety of cake stands available for rent which you can browse during your appointment – just be sure to return them within three business days.




WHERE CAN I SEE SOME OF YOUR CAKES?


Check out our gallery of bride’s and groom’s cakes or check us out on Instagram @sweetescapecakeco! These are just a sampling of the hundreds of cakes we’ve make over the years – if you don’t see your dream cake, we’ll be happy to design it for you!




HOW ABOUT AN ANNIVERSARY CAKE?


If you choose to serve the top tier, we will provide a free 6" round cake on your first anniversary. It is your responsibility to contact us at least two weeks prior to your anniversary date to arrange pickup and determine flavor.
