PRICING AND FAQS
How much do your cakes cost?
Cake prices vary based on labor and decor. Please use the following as an estimated base cost:
Semi-naked, smooth, & textured buttercream: $7 per slice
Fondant: $8 per slice
Heavily detailed/stenciled designs: $9-$10 per slice
Do you have a minimum order?
Yes, I have a $125 minimum on celebration cakes and a $200 minimum on tiered cakes & wedding cakes.
*** Covid update: minimum orders have been dropped to $85 ***
Do you have any cakes I pick up today to tomorrow?
Unfortunately, no. Milly's Fine Cakes is not a retail storefront. I bake fresh to order out of a commercial kitchen, therefore requiring advanced notice.
How far in advance should I book?
For wedding cakes, I suggest booking 6 months out. I take a limited number of clients each month so I can give each order the attention to detail it deserves. For celebrations cakes, 1 month in advance should be sufficient based on availability.
Do you deliver?
Yes, of course. I recommend all cakes besides single tiers be delivered. Delivery is based upon location and driving conditions. Please think of delivery as insurance. If anything were to happen to your wedding cake during a delivery, only a skilled professional could properly fix it, so it arrives at your venue safe and in perfect condition.
How do tastings work?
Custom tastings are available for wedding and special event clients only. Tastings are designed for 2 people and include your choice of 4 cake flavors. All cakes are complemented with a silky, not too sweet, swiss meringue buttercream. Custom consultations are $30. To schedule an in-person tasting, please contact me via the contact page. Please bring anything that may inspire you to our consultation (wedding colors, dress photos, invitations, Pinterest boards, etc.).
*** Covid update: all consultations are currently to-go style accompanied by a virtual tasting ***
Do you make smash cakes?
Yes! That being said, please keep in mind I have a minimum order of $125, so this may require you to order an additional cake or cupcakes. Although smash cakes may be small, they still require planning, shopping, baking, assembling, decorating, and clean up. The same premium ingredients are used in every cake, regardless of the size or occasion.
Can you replicate a cake I found online?
Pinterest is a fantastic place to draw inspiration, but out of respect to each artist, I do not make exact replicas. Ordering a custom cake gives you the opportunity to create something custom-tailored just for you! I promise this will be much more meaningful!
Do you offer gluten-free or dairy-free cakes?
At this time, I do not offer allergy-free cakes. I am working on recipes, but want them to taste just as good as my regular cakes. I'll keep you updated on the "flavors" page.
Do you ship?
No, not at this time.
**Please keep in mind, Milly's Fine Cakes is not a gluten-free certified kitchen. All desserts come out of the same space, so there is always a risk of cross-contamination.**
