- Is my event date available?
Please contact the bakery.We do not keep a waiting list, and we are not currently taking orders beyond December 31, 2016. If your event falls beyond that date, please contact us to discuss details.
- Can I visit your shop?
Sorry, but no.We are a very small, very busy shop. Every cake we make is handcrafted to order, and while that makes for some really spectacular cakes, it doesn’t leave us with a lot of time for visitors and small talk. Therefore, we cannot have people stopping in to watch. While we truly appreciate everyone’s excitement and support, we simply do not have the time or resources for visitors. If you ask to visit, we will be forced to say “no”. If you show up anyway, we will not be able to let you come inside. We are very sorry to be so stern and such, but there are no exceptions to this policy.We do not give tours of our facility to groups.
- How does the process work?
The cake making process starts with you requesting a price quote. Simply contact the bakery to speak directly to our pastry chef. The more info you can provide, the better we can price your cake! You will receive an email from us within two business days with an estimate. Once you have indicated that want to move forward with the order, we will then send you a contract and payment form or ask to schedule a design appointment. Design/Tasting appointments are held for most, but not all, cake orders. This meeting is an opportunity for you to sit down with a decorator, design the cake and have lots of fun!During your design appointment, we will provide you with final contract/pricing for the order, and a taster box of samples. Your appointment should take about 60 minutes. Be sure to bring any visual references (pictures, objects, swatches, etc..) that you think will aid in the design and construction of the cake. Additionally, please come prepared with as much event info as possible, including the setup schedule, important contacts and any relevant delivery conditions. At the end of the appointment we will sign the cake contract to take with you and accept the fifty percent deposit. Should you need additional time to decide on the cake or arrange for payment, we will gladly hold your event date on our production calendar for up to three business days. See our Payment Policy for more details.Once you have placed the order, we will continue to work with you on collecting all of the details needed to make and deliver your awesome cake. Come two weeks before your event date, we will process the final payment and collect any outstanding delivery info and/or design references. The day of your event we will deliver the cake approximately 1 hour before the event start time.
- Do your cakes actually taste good?
Yes they do. You can read for yourself. I do not limit clients to certain flavors. you pick it, I make it.
- How much are your cakes?
All of our cakes are individually priced based on the complexity of their design. Given that our cakes are completely custom made, we do not have a standardized pricing list.Wedding and tiered cakes start at $4.60 a serving. We find that most of our clients choose designs that start at about $5 per serving. There is a 20-serving minimum on wedding and tiered cakes.3D, sculptural cakes start at $250.00.We are happy to work within your event budget and encourage you to contact us for a design/tasting appointment so that we can discuss your cake order in person. We feel meeting with someone face-to-face and getting to know their ideas is the best way to plan a spectacular cake!

- Do you deliver?
Delivery is available for wedding cakes and cakes that require on-site assembly. We do not ship our cakes. Delivery fees are 20% of your total order for local delivery (less than 25 miles) and $.60 per mile after the first 25 miles and is calculated by distance traveled both ways. Anything longer than five hours is determined on a case-by-case basis. While it is generally not a problem for clients to transport smaller cakes, self-transporting any cake is at your own risk. My Homemaker's Haven does not recommend clients self-transport 3D/sculptural cakes, cakes over 2 tiers tall, or any cake more than 3 hours and is not responsible for any damage that may occur to any client-transported cake once it has left our bakery.
