Wedding Cake FAQs
Wedding cake costs depend widely on what the bride and groom are looking for including the design, flavors and location of the wedding. We create each cake freshly and just for you so unfortunately we can’t give you a price without a consultation. To get started, complete this form.
Yes! Please contact us for a consultation for your wedding. During your consultation we will offer you samples of a few flavors and icing combinations of your choosing and discuss the design of your cake as well as other wedding details like location, setup and delivery. Cost of consultation is $30 and goes towards the cost of your cake if you book with us.
Kickshaws does require a non-refundable $100 deposit to secure your date. All the final details will be due 4 weeks prior to the date of the actual event, so don’t stress over the final head count- we can get the final details worked out. We just need an approximate head count to get you an estimated price for the cake.
We do not sell cake toppers, so please do let us know if you will be using one. We want to be sure that the design of the cake doesn’t compete with the topper you choose but works perfectly with it. We do require that the toppers be dropped off at the latest, a week before the wedding so that we can be sure that the design works well with it and be certain to have it ready for setup and delivery.
We typically only offer delivery for wedding and sculpted cakes because there is so much risk involved. No groom wants to drop the wedding cake on the way to the reception hall and have to face his bride, so we take the stress out of that for you. During your consultation we will discuss delivery and setup of your cake.
Typically, there are no additional equipment fees you have to worry about. If you would like to use one of our displays, we of course, require a deposit on those and that is returned when the stand is returned. Aside of that, there are no fees for the support structure of the cake.
We have been making custom sculpted cakes for over ten years, competing nationally for 3-d cake work. We love making these cakes but they are complex and time consuming. Our minimum order for sculpted cakes is a minimum number of servings of 20 and prices starting at $250. The costing on sculpted cakes is dependent on the design and number of servings. Typically we meet with clients to go over design and pricing before ordering. A 50% deposit is required for all sculpted cakes. Pickup and delivery are available (delivery at an extra cost).
