It is our pleasure to create delicious tailor-made cakes for weddings throughout the Sonoma and Mendocino coasts. We love the challenge of designing each cake we make to our clients' tastes and styles, and we always use the highest quality, all-natural ingredients, such as organic flour, free-range local eggs, and locally grown produce. We really believe that your wedding cake should taste just as good as it looks! We've actually had clients tell us that their wedding cake was the best cake they'd ever eaten. How great is that? We are also thrilled to offer more modern-day takes on the wedding cake as well, such as cupcakes dessert tables.
We offer complimentary consultations, and cake tastings of up to three flavors at a time are available for $5 per flavor. If you have a cake flavor you'd especially like to sample, just let us know and we will do our very best to have it on hand for you to try during your tasting. We are also happy to make you a full size 6 inch sample cake, which serves 6-8 people, for $25. During your consultation, we'll discuss the flavors and design of your cake, so please feel free to bring us any photos or other inspirations that capture your wedding style. Consultations are designed for two people, if you'd like to plan to bring additional guests with you, just let us know.
Prices are based on a per serving basis, and buttercream cakes start at $6 per serving, and fondant cakes are $7 per serving, both with a $200 minimum order. Additional decorative elements such as fondant flowers are priced on a design-by-design basis, and we are always happy to give you an estimate. Cake prices do not include the cost of fresh flowers, since prices can vary so much depending upon the the time of year and vendor.
Since we are such a small business, we encourage our clients to book as far in advance as possible. Because we want to be able to give your cake all the time and attention it deserves, we do not book more than two to three wedding cakes per week. (It's just Franny, and June through October is an especially busy time.) A non-refundable $50 deposit will secure your wedding date on our schedule, and the remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your event. We accept cash or personal checks.
We are always happy to provide delivery and set-up for your wedding cake.
Delivery within Point Arena is complimentary, to Manchester, Irish Beach, Gualala, and Anchor Bay is $25, to Sea Ranch and Elk is $40, Albion, Little River, and Mendocino $45, and Fort Bragg & Annapolis are $50
Don't see your location? Just ask!
We can also lend you special serving pieces from our collection on which to display and serve your cake or dessert table. Most pieces require a refundable $100 security deposit.
Below you'll find a list of our current cakes, but please feel free to mix, match, and add to your liking. If there's a cake you love that isn't on our list, we're more than happy to make it for you, and we also have many gluten-free and vegan options available. All of our cakes are frosted in swiss meringue buttercream, including fondant cakes which have a layer of buttercream underneath.
