2-3 MONTHS NOTICE is suggested for most custom cakes, as many dates do book out. Dates are filling faster than ever! We are currently booked for cakes until 2023. REMEMBER we carry cakes in store daily! * These cannot be customized besides WRITING on them. We cannot add items, change icing color etc.. to these: They are GRAB and GO.
CHECK OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR FIRST!
Dates are filling FAST.
Step 1: REVIEW the availability calendar/ Fill out Contact Us form OR email us ( goes to same place ) at : email@example.com. Please DO NOT CALL US regarding a cake order.
We are booking out MONTHS in advance. WE DO NOT MAKE SHEET CAKES.
Step 2: BE SURE to include the date you need this, how many you are trying to feed, BUDGET, Photos of your idea(s). Not sure what you want? Google some ideas! We can combine all your favorites. We have HUNDREDS of photos on our Facebook page for reference. We will NOT TOTALLY COPY another cake artist’s work. We are a custom bakery, so each cake is made to suit the customer’s needs. PLEASE REVIEW the cake pricing guide for an idea on pricing also prior to inquiring, so you have realistic expectations of what pricing may be.
Flavor is NOT needed until 1 week prior, so no rush on this decision! If going for a Basic Dessert style or simple cake, just email us with what size cake, flavor, and color scheme: we can send you an invoice for this right away if we have availability.
Step 3: Be sure to check your SPAM once you send the email : you will receive an auto response once your email is received to assure we got it! We respond within TWO DAYS. Please remember than an inquiry is just an inquiry- you are NOT placing any order until we respond with pricing and OK the date.
Step 4: Please be patient:) Melissa personally responds to each and every email. She will walk you through your pricing options, and then will email you an invoice once you decide to proceed! IF you do not hear back from us within TWO DAYS please send us a follow up email to be sure we did not miss your inquiry! Melissa@sweetmelissade.com / PLEASE DO NOT CALL asking if we received your inquiry/ email, as we can accidentally mark your email as READ, and your form could get lost. Following up with an email is best!
Step 5: You must pay your deposit prior to the due date listed on your invoice in order to book. No cakes are booked without a deposit. Once we state we can make a cake and you request an invoice, we pencil you in for the date, and send the invoice as soon as we can!
