Do you offer consultations or cake/dessert tastings?
Yes, of course! We encourage you to contactus to setup a personalized consultation, during which we will provide cake/dessert tasting. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss design options that are best fit for you and your budget. Consultations are $30 and are only available for wedding cakes & larger dessert tables. If you wish to book with SK Confectionery, the $30 will be credited towards the order. Consultations are 45 minutes in length, and we are able to accommodate 3 persons in our office. Please bring along with you pictures of cake/dessert designs you like, bridal outfit details, decor ideas, invitations, etc. to be use as inspiration for the cake.
When should we book our cake?
It is recommended to book your wedding cake 5 - 6 months prior to your wedding date. It is never too early to book your wedding cake, especially if the wedding is during peak months, from April to September. For custom cakes, a two week notice is required in most cases. During peak months, it's recommended to book 3-4 weeks in advance to ensure the date is available.
How much cake do we need?
If you have a large variety of desserts, it is recommended to serve 50-60% of your total guest count. If you will be having few or no, then it’s recommended to get 70-80% of your total guest count. Keep in mind that everyone may not have cake or opt for another dessert.
How much do your cakes cost?
Cost varies depending on the complexity of the design, cake shape and size. Please contact us to get a quote for a design you have in mind. Alternatively, you may schedule a consultation during which we can further discuss design and pricing details. Starting prices for cakes is available on the pricing page.
What is your payment policy?
We require a 50% deposit to reserve your event date, along with a signed contract (for wedding cakes only). The remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to the date of the event. We accept cash and online eTransfer. Please email eTransfer to email@example.com
What is your cancellation policy?
Your deposit reserves your event date and is only fully refundable with a 60-day notice prior to the event date. In the event of a cancellation with less than 60 days notice, only 50% will be refunded. No refunds will be issued for notice of 30 days or less for cancellation. A $30 transaction fee will apply for any consultation services rendered. A $75 fee will apply to renew the contract, given that the date is still available.
Are your cakes nut/gluten/dairy/egg free?
Our facility uses all these ingredients and cannot guarantee an allergen-free product. However, we do offer gluten-free, vegan, and eggless options. Please inquire for more information. While some desserts/flavours may not have nuts, we cannot guarantee a product free of any nut traces.
Could we get a buttercream cake instead of fondant cake?
Our cakes are covered with buttercream regardless of whether you would like a fondant cake or not. Our fondant has a delicious marshmallow taste, and is less sweet than other brands. We encourage you to try the fondant and opt for a fondant cake as it offers the most crisp, clean finish, providing the best canvas for our custom designs. Buttercream options only available for rustic or naked cakes.
Do you have cake stands for rental?
Cake stands may be rented for a fee depending on the specific stand and size. A refundable security deposit is required to ensure the stand is returned in the original condition within 3 days after the event. In the event of a damage, or missed return, the security deposit will be forfeited and additional charges may apply to cover the costs of a new stand.
Do you provide delivery and setup?
Yes, we encourage you to allow us to deliver and setup for wedding cakes and larger custom cakes to ensure safe transportation. Delivery and setup for wedding and large celebration cakes starts at $40 locally. Please inquire for exact delivery and setup charges. Delivery and setup fees will vary for dessert tables depending on size, starting at $75 locally.
If you have any additional questions that have not been answered, or would like to inquire about a cake and/or desserts, please feel free to contact us.
