GROOM'S CAKES

We too love the time honored tradition of the Groom's cake.  Let us create something special for the Mr.  ---maybe just something as simple as his favorite Oreo cake or one of our Sugar Tap (alchohol infused cakes) such as Just Jack (whiskey, beer and bacon!) or a personalized flavor with his favorite beer (Spotted Cow, perhaps?)  If you want to go all out in design---our pastry decorators are very talented!  Below are a few ideas:

This Sweets Table includes a small tiered cake for the bridal couple's cutting cake, and layered cakes in the following flavors:  Red Velvet, Vanilla Strawberry, Chocolate Commotion, Coconut, Lemon Drop, Salty Caramel, Turtle, Oreo and Peanut Butter Cup

Cake Buffets:  

One of our favorite dessert tables is the Cake Buffet!  We just love when we get to make a lot of pretty cakes and then arrange them on a table!  We just wish we could be there when your guests walk in too see the look on their faces!  

Cake Buffets are created through an assortment of round layered cakes in varying sizes and flavors.  We are experienced at helping you pick the perfect flavors and amounts.  Another fun thing some of our brides have done is to put a cake on each guest table.  Let us know you are interested in a cake buffet and we can help you with the most amazing set up!

 

Mini Cupcakes on a buffet are always a crowdpleaser!  The cupcakes on this table include Salty Caramel, Peanut Butter Cup, Lemon Drop and Vanilla Strawberry along with a Naked Cutting cake topped with fruit.

Cupcakes and Mini Cupcakes:

Cupcakes and Mini Cupcakes are like little cakes and ours are pretty popular!  You can see a list of our cupcakes on our Cupcake menu on this website.  All of our flavors come in both sizes.

Our tiny pies make a delicious dessert to offer your guests.  So many people love the down home taste of pie, and our crust is a winner!

Pies

There are a lot of people who prefer pie as a dessert and we have noticed a trend towards this homestyle dessert for wedding dessert.  We handcraft all of our pie dough in our bakery and hand roll each one.  We offer three sizes:  9 inches, 5 inches and 3 inches.  The 9 inch is the traditional whole pie size, the 5 inch is a sharing size and the 3 inch is perfect for an individual portion.  Most people like to offer the 3 inch size on a sweets table, while others offer a pie buffet with while pies.  You can discover more about our pies on this website pie tab.  

 

All dessert tables are individually priced based on the desserts you select and the amount.  In order for us to provide you with an estimate we need to know the number of guests you want to feed and the desserts you want on your table.   Desserts are custom created for each event. Check out our portfolio below of some of our creations!

OUR PROCESS

First: Our initial meeting is typically when you contact us via phone, email or drop in the shop.  Many people are looking for a price.  However, it is difficult to give a generic price for an event that you will want custom details.  In order to provide an estimate we need to know at a minimum:
  • Your guest totals---this number typically determines the amount of dessert you will order.
  • The date, time and location of your venue to know if we have room on our calendar.
  • The type of dessert.  Exactly.  In order to price a dessert for you we need to know what you want (i.e. tiered cake, dessert table, etc).  We have no "general" tiered cake pricing.  Your tiered cake price depends on size, flavor and design.  
  • If you want us to deliver.  Our delivery fee is based on how far we will be going, what we are delivering and how long we will be at the venue for you.
  • Custom requests such as matching ribbon, special sprinkles, custom order baking cups, etc.

Typically we are able to obtain all of this information from you at a Dessert Tasting and provide you with an estimate at that time.  

Second, the Dessert Tasting.  Tastings are conducted by appointment only in our shop.  Appointments for tastings can be made on our website or by calling us at (630) 882-2536.
  • Our Tasting fee is $25 for up to 4 people or $35 for up to 6 people,  unless covered by your venue.  
  • You will meet with a member of our Events team member to taste items as well as fully discuss your dessert needs.  Please feel free to bring with you whatever you want to show up so that we can design your perfect desserts.
  • After the tasting we will provide you with an estimate.  If you decide to put down a deposit we will reserve your date on our calendar.  If we reserve your date on our calendar, your $100 deposit is non-refundable unless you cancel within 6 months of your wedding date.
