Our Process

The first step in ordering with us is to book a tasting where we will have the opportunity to meet you and guide you through selecting and designing your one of a kind cake!  From there we will follow up with a completed color sketch of your cake design and pricing proposal.  Upon your approval, we proceed with contract and 50% deposit to book your date and you’re all set, let the countdown for the big day begin!

See our work along with commonly asked questions below:

 


Tastings

We would love the opportunity to sit down with you to taste, discuss, and design your custom wedding cake.  There is a $25.00 fee to reserve a tasting which includes your one hour tasting, cake samples of our full menu, and a sketch of your one-of-a-kind cake.  To book your cake tasting please visit the “book a tasting” page on our site. Please note we do not offer tastings for party cakes.

Pricing

Our cakes are priced based on the serving size and complexity of design. Our simple cakes start at $6.00 per serving for buttercream frosting, and $7.50 per serving for fondant covered designs. Adding items like our signature  sugar flowers, extensive hand piping etc. can increase cost and we find that our typical custom cake averages $7.00-$9.00 per serving.

Delivery

We offer delivery within Charlotte as well as delivery farther afield for weddings and events. We strongly encourage having our custom layer cakes delivered as we have experience with transporting and setup, and can ensure that your fantastic cake arrives at its destination in perfect condition. Please note that if pickup is selected as opposed to delivery, we are not responsible for damage to orders that occur after they leave our hands.

How far in advance do I need to order?

Ideally wedding cakes should be booked 3-9 months out, and special occasion cakes 2-4 weeks prior to delivery date. This ensures that we can spend the time required in planning and preparation stages to produce the best possible products. That being said, if a sudden occasion arises, or you happened to forget a birthday, it is always worth giving us a call to check!

I’m concerned about peanut, egg, dairy, gluten or other allergies.

Delish Cakery is not an allergen free bakery, we do use ingredients including peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, dairy, and eggs to create our delicious goods. If you or someone in your party has an allergy please notify our staff.  Persons with severe allergies should refrain from consuming our products.

What is your return and cancellation policy?

Because we reserve the date in our calendar, and begin the planning process for your order, deposits for custom cakes are non-refundable.

Under no circumstances will a refund be given for completed orders. In some cases, a replacement cake or discount on a future order will be offered. Our goal is to ensure that you are completely satisfied and in the rare event that this is not the case; we will work to resolve the issue on an individual basis.
