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.
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 4-6 months in advance and other celebration cakes at least 1-2 months in advance. We do our best to accommodate smaller orders closer to the event date, so please still check with us as we may have openings.
How many will my cake serve?
Our standard cake serving sizes are approximately 1" x 2" x 4" high. Carved cakes and methods of slicing may affect the total number of servings. Upon request, we will provide a cake cutting guide for you to follow.
Is there a special way I should cut my cake?
Yes and this is very important if you want to ensure you have enough servings for your guests. Upon request, we will provide a cake cutting guide for you to follow. Most venues offer a complimentary cake cutting service, but we advise you check with your specific venue to confirm this.
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 "sheet cakes" as a way to offer additional servings and cut on cost?
We do offer "supplemental" cakes in addition to a smaller wedding cake. These are un-decorated 12" round tiers (serves 50) in a simple textured buttercream finish. They are not meant to be on display, but rather served from the kitchen and are priced at a discounted rate from our regular wedding cake prices. Please inquire for details.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check, and credit / debit cards.
Do you offer any special discounts?
Yes, we offer a 10% discount to military and first responders with valid ID. We also extend the same discount to teachers with valid ID.
