As soon as possible! We recommend, at a minimum, 24 hours in advance for simple cakes, 48 hours for tiered cakes, and 1 week for shaped cakes, detailed designs, or fondant work. That said, the more notice that you give us, the more likely it is that we will be able to accommodate your order. Holiday weekends, graduation, football, and popular wedding weekends fill up more quickly, and therefore require more notice. We will always try to accommodate your order needs, regardless of notice, however some of these weekends we will book completely, that’s why it’s better to order as soon as possible! All cakes except simple cakes do require advance payment at time of order. Until payment is made, we cannot guarantee availability for your date.
