Our Process


Complimentary tastings are reserved by appointment only and are typically held on one or two weekends each month.  Our cake samples are freshly baked for each tasting and this will give you a great idea of how our cakes taste.  Just like your wedding cake, our samples are NEVER frozen! While it is not possible to sample every flavor we offer, you can find a full list of flavors HERE that you can choose for your wedding cake!

While you are here, we will also give you a tour of the Cake Cottage to show you where your cake is made and chat about a few of your cake ideas as well.


Once you reserve your wedding date with us, the next step in the process is the cake design!  In order to reserve your date, we require a $200 non-refundable deposit which is applied to your wedding cake balance.

We are happy to meet again in person or handle the design over the phone or through email...whichever is more convenient for you! After discussing the cake in more detail, Ashley will sketch out a full-color rendering for you to proof.  

This part of the process is almost as fun for us as baking and decorating your wedding cake!


Since every cake is designed to reflect the individual style of each bride & groom, as well as the decor at the reception, we do not have a set price list.  As a rule of thumb, most of our cakes average around $7 per serving.  

We do not charge additional fees for things like delivery within the Triangle area, multiple cake flavors and fillings, or cake stand rentals.

We also include a complimentary 6" round anniversary cake on your first anniversary to enjoy so you do not have to save and freeze your top tier!  Freshly baked cakes are always better then frozen!
