Frequently Asked Questions

Who should set up a cake tasting?

How much does a cake tasting cost?
Cake tastings are $35.  The $35 will be applied to cake purchases of $200 or more.

When should I book my cake tasting?

As soon as possible! We schedule a small number of cakes per weekend to ensure that each creation gets the attention it deserves. 3-4 months is generally a safe rule for large cakes. 3-4 weeks for smaller tiered cakes. The more elaborate the design, the more time we will need to construct. However, we are always happy to try and accommodate last minute orders, so please give us a call!

What does the cake tasting include?

  1. Cake samples for you and 1 or 2 guests (NO MORE THAN 3 TOTAL.)
  2. Your choice of 6 flavor combinations to try. A combination is a cake, buttercream, and an optional filling.
  3. 1 Hour one-on-one designer face time with Emma Cech, owner and head baker of the The Happy Tart.
  4. Follow-up contact & a sketch of cake when applicable, until your wedding or event date.

What should I bring to the cake tasting?
Some basic information will be helpful on getting us started. This includes how many guests you expect to serve and the date of the event. If possible you can bring photos of cake designs you like, swatches of colors, flowers, dress details, cake stands or toppers you would like to use and anything else that would help us design your dream cake!

How much do the cakes cost?
Wedding and tiered cake pricing starts at $5.50 per serving, with a minimum order of 23 servings.
