1/How far in advance do we have to order a wedding cake?
Well usually it depends a lot on the date, we would have to check if your day is available or not. We would suggest maybe 6 months or more in advance, although we do have some last-minute ones that we would get into because you don’t want anyone to go without a wedding cake for their special day. Also, we would have to take into consideration about the custom part, if it’s more stylistic we would need more time. So, the sooner you call the better. We took order up to 3 years in advance.
2/Is there a lot of people that order 3 years in advance?
There are actually a lot of people that do that, it’s because sometimes it’s not wedding cake that they are looking to order. They may want to order anniversary cakes, sweet 16 cakes, or Quinceanera, and or wedding cakes. As for wedding cakes, if you know that you are going to be together forever, why not. Also, if you have a 12- or 13-year-old, you know that you are going to be 15 and 16 soon, so why not. Think ahead, it’s saved you time, money and guaranty to have a cake from us. also, those enjoyable time of cake tasting and custom your own cake, especially if the prices can be changing every month.
3/How much cheaper if we were to order in advance?
Every month the prices might changes, it only changes because we have to take into considerate of the state of the economy. Depending on gas, ingredients, and or etc, the prices would go up or down. Although, we always want great prices for all of our customers, so we take that into consideration too. We have the best prices compared to other bakeries, at the same time our cakes look great and taste absolutely amazing.
Every month the prices do change depending to the ingredients and gas. So, Order as soon as possible.

We open a more flexible window for you; you would have to tell us two months before hand, if you were to change the date of the wedding. We would keep everything the same, price and all but push the date back. Also, we have special discounts if both to be bride and groom serve in the military, we off 10 percent off. If one serves that would be 5 percent discount for our men or women of the military.
