AKRON, OH | HOME-BASED BAKERY + FOOD TRUCK
Congratulations, and thank you for considering Enticing Cakes to design your wedding cake. We open our books in January of each year and are now scheduling 2023 weddings. 2024 weddings may still reach out and have their date marked as pending to have first dibs when the books open next year.
Please email us with all of the following information:
We'll get back to you to confirm availability and calculate if we are a good fit with your budget and vision.
After we've confirmed availability, we'll schedule a consultation + tasting. Here we discuss every detail including design, pricing, FAQ's etc. and you can taste some cake!
Consultations are complimentary and include 3 free cake flavor + filling choices to enjoy and serve up to 4 guests. If you wish to try more flavors or add more guests, you may do so for an additional $6 per flavor/guest.
We recommend coming prepared with inspiration photos or color samples to help convey the style you have in mind.
Our busy season begins in April and recommend getting on the schedule for a consultation January-March when we host open availability for appointments.
Everything we discuss at your consultation will be drafted into a cake contract. There is no pressure to book and your wedding date is reserved for 2 weeks after your consultation.
Once you confirm, a $50 deposit will be invoiced that locks in your reserved date. This deposit is non-refundable, but is applied towards the total cost of your order.
The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the date of your wedding and payment plans are available. Changes may also be made up until two weeks in advance.
Canceled events will be fully refunded with the exception of the security deposit. Unfortunately, if your order has already been made or started we cannot offer a refund.
All of our base pricing can be found under the wedding tab. Base pricing includes basic design such as textured icing, boarders, etc. There are no additional taxes, but be sure to calculate extras such as delivery. You can usually ask your florist for extra flowers for your cake if those are included in your design vision.
A good formula to calculate how many cake servings you need is (invite list -20%) = total guest count. (total guest count - 15%) = total cake servings needed: not everyone will eat cake. We have vegan & gluten-free options available and recommend adding a half dozen - one dozen cupcakes as an option if you think that's something you need.
Let us know if you plan to save the top tier of your cake for an anniversary tradition. You want to subtract this from the total number of servings your cake will provide. It does actually freeze well for a year if you save it properly and we can provide you with some instructions. We also leave a cake box in the back after delivering your cake.
Weddings add up, and while we're biased about cake we don't think they need to be the main event of your wedding if you're on a budget. Helpful ways to lower the cost are having a small cutting cake for pictures, then feed the masses with sheet cakes in the back or cupcakes.
Common factors forgotten in cake planning include: Cake stands, a cake cutter and server, custom ordering a cake topper, designating someone to leave said items on the cake table the day of, to-go containers for guests, and considering the heat of your venue/fridge space when coordinating delivery. All of the above + more are discussed with you at your consultation and we have cake equipment available to rent if needed to ensure you're all set.
