How much does a wedding cake cost?
Due to the nature of our work all cakes are custom made to fit our customers needs. The price on the cake will be determined by the amount of labor and number of servings needed.
Do you provide a cake stand?
Yes, Hands on Sweets will provide a complimentary cake stand on all orders, if and only if the cake stand is available. Hands on Sweets collects a refundable fee to ensure return of the cake stand. If cake stand is damaged or not returned, the refundable fee will be cashed. In case you may want a special cake stand that we do not have in stock we will provide rental companies information.
May I have a tasting for my wedding cake?
Yes! We would love to have you come in! Tastings are a one (1) time only complimentary tasting for two (2) guests where you will get the chance to taste and have a design session with Chef Marie. This consultation lasts about an hour and must be scheduled during our regular business hours from Tuesday - Thursday. Due to deliveries and work schedule we are unable to meet Fridays and Saturdays. If this is your only available time we may be able to work around our schedule to have you come in.
May I purchase sugar flowers or other decorations?
Due to the exclusivity of our work we do not sell any decorations nor sugar flowers separately. We handcraft every sugar flower and all of our decorations are edible therefore we are unable to provide them separately. On the other hand we would love to create something special for you!
Do you provide gluten free cakes?
Although we are not a gluten free facility we are able to make gluten free cakes and desserts that will wow your guests. We are able to fit other dietary requests, but please ask before attending a consultation with us.
