A tiered cake is a cake with more than one level. Due to the levelling required, the hidden internal pillar supports and the skill and time involved to stack a tiered cake they are more expensive than your standard single tier cake. All cakes are priced according to time and decor, whether its a shower, birthday, event or wedding cake.
Tiered cakes range from $4 per serving to $15 per serving depending upon decor and complexity of design.
Cakes with decor such as simple scroll piping, Swiss dots, polka dots or swag with tear drop décor will fall under the lower ranges.
Ombre colors, color tinting, fondant appliqué, fondant lace, fondant ruffles, fondant draping, brushed embroidery, real rhinestone trim, sugarpaste flowers etc. are decors that will increase pricing. If you email pictures of designs you like along with the number of servings your cake needs to feed we will be happy to quote you.
If you include a dessert bar for your guests you can reduce the size of your main wedding cake to a more petite version so that you still have a beautiful cake for the cake cutting pictures.
Single tier cakes are generally less expensive, however we still take into consideration the decoration time and just as with tiered cakes, décor elements such as ombre colors, color tinting etc. will contribute to an increase in price.
For those opting for a smaller cake but with a guest count of over 100 we suggest sheet cakes. These are filled and frosted but without any decoration.
Non decorated quarter sheet cake serving 48 is $72.
Non decorated half sheet cake serving 84 is $125.
Sheet cakes can also be decorated for birthdays, showers and other events with edible images added to the cake. Pricing for decorated sheet cakes will vary according to the decor elements added and can be discussed with one of our pastry chefs.
Sculpted cakes are priced more on a per project basis than a per serving price and would need to be discussed with one of our pastry chefs. You are welcome to email photos so that we can give you an approximate quote. We require at least two weeks notice for a sculpted cake and during wedding season even three weeks may be required.
