you have a price list?
No, prices vary greatly depending of the complexity of the
design, but to help plan your budget, you can generally expect
tiered cakes to start at $5.00 per serving with a
minimum $150 order and sculpted cakes to
start at $7.00 per serving with a $200.00 minimum order.

got quoted a lower price by another baker. Why is that?
There is always going to be a less expensive
Here are some things to consider:
I use high quality ingredients - real butter
not shortening, free-range eggs, high quality chocolate, and
no artificial flavors. The difference is an exceptionally
delicious and beautiful cake vs "a cake."
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. You can look at my
gallery, you can see the quality of my work
which is a result of my studies. Ask potential bakers to see
pictures of their work. Ask if the photos you see are of cakes
they have created in their bakery (not stock photography or
photos from other bakeries.)
A picture is worth a thousand words:

When should I order my cake?
If possible, please allow at least one month's notice.
I recommend contacting me as soon as possible to secure your
date as I often book up several weeks in advance. A 50% deposit
is required to secure your date. If you have a last-minute
request, please feel free to contact me, and I’ll
certainly try my best to fit you in.
Do you deliver?
Yes. Prices vary depending on distance but is generally $20-30.
Contact me for details and prices.
How many servings of cake should
I plan for and how do I cut my cake?
A good rule of thumb is to plan on having about 25% more servings
than guests. For example, if you plan of having 100 guests,
it would be best to order 125 servings. Most bakeries consider
a serving size to be 1" x 2". That may sound a little
small, but take into consideration that most of our
cakes are 4" tall vs the traditional 3"
tall. Here is a link to a cutting
guide by Wilton.
you make a . . . for me?
Anything is possible. Often designs come from party invitations,
themes and even fabric. Design details and colors can be matched
in sugar. You are not restricted to the cake designs shown
in my gallery, these are just to show you the quality of my
work and some of the designs that are possible.
What forms of payment do you
I accept cash, checks, credit cards, or I can send you a paypal
What is your cancellation policy?
If you cancel your order, your deposit is non-refundable unless
I am notified at least 2 weeks prior to the event. There will
be no refund on orders canceled with less than 2 weeks notice.
Do you ship your cakes?
Unfortunately, due to the fragile nature of cake, I am unable
to ship them. I can deliver to surrounding cities such as
New Braunfels, Austin, San Marcos, Universal City, Schertz,
Cibolo, etc for a fee based on the distance I will need to
