Artful Cakes, Rich in Beauty and in Taste
How do I place an order?​ 
We require a minimum of 72 hours notice for our Granny cakes, which are our beautifully and lightly decorated cakes.  We require at least one week's notice for our specialty cakes, which are more custom-decorated.  Orders are based upon availability as we do not stock ready-to-purchase cakes.  Occasionally, we are able to squeeze in last minute orders, so we always say, contact us -- it doesn't hurt to ask.  If we can accommodate you, we will be more than glad to do so. 

Our cakes are priced per serving and that is based on the flavors and design.  Please note, we are a specialty cake shop and we do not make sheet cakes.   Orders may be placed by phone at 301.751.4870 or you may contact us by email at  [email protected].  We generally respond within two business days. 

The details of your order will be emailed to you for review and approval.  Once you've consented, we will email you a final confirmation and secure a deposit to book your order.   A mutually convenient time for pick up or delivery will be designated in your email.

I would like to order a special occasion cake and would like to know if I could meet with you to discuss the design, etc.
Unfortunately we are unable to do so at this time as we are a small but growing company and do not have the staff to meet with everyone personally.   We put a lot of care into what we do.  We listen to our clients carefully so that we can successfully capture and incorporate all of the 'bells and whistles' so desired into your cake.  Full details of your order will be discussed with you via phone and/or email for your review and consent.   

How do you accept payment?  How about delivery?
We prefer cash, Zelle, CashApp or  money orders.  We do accept Visa and MasterCard, and all credit cards payments are subject to a 3% surcharge.  We do not take personal checks, unless they are received within three weeks of your order due date. We deliver, upon availability.  Delivery starts at $45.00 and we charge for our time, gas and mileage. 







I understand most of your cake accessories are made of sugar.  Does this mean they are entirely edible? 
Our accessories are hand crafted primarily from sugar mediums, making them edible. However, we mainly create them for decor purposes and not consummation. Once they are created, they are dried and painted accordingly so that they sustain their individual design and structure. Our paste flowers are also made of sugar, but many of them are built on wires which are NOT edible. 

I see you are closed on Sundays. May I still get a cake for that day?
Yes. Should you want a cake for an event that is held on a Sunday, you may either pick it up or have it delivered on the Saturday before. We will provide you with storage instructions and anything else that will pose helpful. We fully guarantee its quality by the time its served. 

Wedding Cakes

May I get an estimate on my cake prior to my appointment?
Wedding cake prices start at $4.50 per serving.  If you have a cake design already picked out, please feel free to email us the design, the number of guests you are anticipating, and the date/time of the wedding reception. We'll in turn, be more than glad to give you an estimate. 

Do you charge for the anniversary tier?
No, that is complimentary, minimum 80 servings required.

How do I set up a tasting/consultation?
Please call us at 301.751.4870  or email us at [email protected] to get further details on availability, samples, etc.

Are there any specific ways to minimize costs without compromising flavor and presentation?
Yes. We offer "kitchen cakes" that supplement your presentation cake, starting at $3.00 per serving. Here's an example of how kitchen cakes work:  If you are anticipating 150 guests, we would offer you a three or four-tiered presentation cake that feeds 80-100. Now, to make up the remaining servings, we then would offer you our kitchen cake, which is priced from $3.00 per serving. The kitchen cake is decorated in butter cream and trimmed with a string of butter cream beads. Its quality, flavor and serving dimensions are identical to that of the presentation cake. It is primarily set aside and/or stored in the kitchen of your banquet hall until time to cut and serve the cake to your guests. 

We realize that we've only answered a few of your questions here, so please feel free to contact us at 301.751.4870 with further inquiries.  

Thank you kindly!
