Commonly Asked Questions:
How far in advance should I order my wedding cake?
There is no way to say which dates will book up first. Each cake we make is baked fresh and custom decorated for that week's bride(s), so we are limited in what we can do each week. If a particular cake order is very large and detailed, then it may be the only order we will be able to handle that week, so once a deposit is received for that cake, then we will be booked for that entire week. The most popular wedding months in Middle Tennessee are October, May and June; therefore, if your wedding is planned for one of those months, you should reserve your cake as much as a year in advance. As we are now making cakes for the wedding packages at Historic Cedarwood in Nashville, some weeks we may not be able to do other cakes.
We hope you understand that payment for our services is our "paycheck" for that week. If we do not receive payment, then we do not receive our paycheck for the week!
How do I reserve my date?
By leaving a non-refundable deposit. We are very sorry, but we cannot hold a date without a deposit in hand. Even if you have met with us, signed a contract with us, or called to say the check is in the mail, the date is still available until we have the deposit "in hand."
Why is the deposit non-refundable?
Once we receive your deposit, we will turn down other orders for that date. Our cakes are not mass-produced, so we must limit what we do.
How much is the deposit?
We require half of the total cake order amount as the deposit, with the balance due 2 weeks prior to the wedding date. (We accept cash, checks and credit cards.)

For your convenience, we have posted monthly calendars below showing our present availability. If a date is red with blue background, that means we already have weddings that day, but may be able to take additional orders if delivery times do not conflict. If the date has a red date and a gray background, that means we are totally booked for that day. If the entire week has red dates and a gray background, that means we are booked for that entire week/weekend and would not be able to take additional orders.
