Why choose Jamie-Cakes?
Our main goal is to make delicious and beautiful creations that will be the centerpiece of your event. Since we limit the number of orders taken each week, this allows us to give each customer's order the attention it deserves. The owner / cake designer, Jamie, personally bakes and decorates each cake that leaves our kitchen, sprinkling in a little love along the way!
What are your hours of operation?
Consultations / cake tastings are by appointment only. We are generally closed on Sundays, Mondays and holiday weekends, but do occasionally offer Sunday afternoon tasting appts as needed. We are also available for wedding deliveries on Sundays.
We do not stock any pre-made cakes for sale and do not offer walk-in orders. All of our cakes our custom made from start to finish.
We are closed major holiday weekends & do not take orders for these dates.
We are also closed the last 2 weeks of each year for the holidays.
What is your payment policy to reserve my wedding cake?
A non-refundable 50% retainer payment is required to reserve your event date. This payment will be applied towards your total order, with the remaining balance due 30 days prior to your event.
How are your cakes priced?
All cakes are priced per serving (see our pricing page for details). These prices take into account the time and supplies to bake your cake, as well as the ability to execute the design. The final price of your cake is based on the total number of servings, as well as the complexity of design and flavor choices.
How far in advance should I book my cake?
For wedding cakes, I recommend 6 to 9 months in advance, but we do book orders up to 1 year in advance.
How many will my cake serve and how should I cut my cake?
Our standard cake serving sizes are approximately 1" x 2" slices. Carved cakes and methods of slicing may affect the total number of servings. Here is a handy link to a cake cutting guide: https://www.zola.com/expert-advice/the-ultimate-wedding-cake-cutting-guide
How do I preserve the top tier of my wedding cake?
If you have chosen to save the top tier of your wedding cake to enjoy on your 1st anniversary, follow these instructions for freezing it to ensure it survives in the freezer for a year! :)
Can I choose multiple flavors for my wedding cake?
Absolutely! Up to two different flavors of your choice are included. Additional flavors beyond the initial two will incur an upgrade fee per flavor.
Do you offer 1 year anniversary cakes?
