    We take cake orders at our La Place and Solon locations only, and you can order over the phone  or in person. We have a trained sales staff that will be happy to assist you with your order. We do not place cake orders online.

  • How far in advance should I order my cake?

    Please order cakes for summer months as soon as possible!

    Because of the time and love that go into our cakes, it is best to reserve your date as soon as possible. We are a small shop that can only take so many custom orders, so we often book up for custom cakes months ahead of time.

    Cake pricing depends on number of servings and the complexity of the design. Please call our shop at La Place 216-514-2253 or Solon 440-394-8049 and we can give you a price quote over the phone.

  • Do you have a list of preferred vendors?

    Yes, we enjoy working with a variety of local vendors to make your wedding event truly special. See Preferred Vendors.

  • What is fondant frosting?

    Fondant frosting is a sugar dough that is applied to the surface of a cake to make it very smooth, almost porcelain like. It does go over the buttercream frosting, so that if your guests do not prefer the fondant, they can simply peel it back and eat the frosting underneath. We offer wedding cakes in both buttercream and fondant frostings, and we recommend that you sample both if you come in for a cake tasting.

    If you bring us a picture of a cake done in fondant, but want it to look like buttercream, please keep in mind it will not look the same. The only way to achieve a flawless finish is through using fondant. Buttercream will show spatula marks, and air bubbles, and is also affected by heat and humidity. If you choose a buttercream wedding cake for the summer months, it must be placed in a venue that has a cool, air conditioned enviroment. We do not do buttercream wedding cakes for outdoor weddings. We typically do not do gumpaste or sugar flowers on buttecream wedding cakes, fresh flowers only.
