Pricing

1What Can I Expect To Pay For A Wedding Cake? Do you have a price list?

We do not have a general price list because each cake is one-of-a-kind. Most custom cakes are priced per person; smaller orders (typically, anything under 75 servings) are priced per project. Because of the care we give to each order, we must require a minimum of $300.00 on all of our wedding cakes.

Due to our shops capacity and demand, high season for weddings see our minimums increase. Please call us to discuss our current minimum pricing.

Pricing starts at $5.00 per serving for a plain iced cake. Our pricing tends to average from $7-$9 per serving. Ultimately the price is based on the complexity of design and the number of people being served. Sheet cakes are available to supplement larger parties and are priced at their current size (not so much by slice)

Before you arrive for your consultation, it is helpful to have a budget in mind for what you would like to spend on your cake. This will give us a better sense of what we can design for you.

2Do I have to make a deposit to reserve my wedding date? If so, how much is it and can I get a refund, if necessary?
Yes, we require a $150.00 retainer to reserve your wedding date on our calendar. We will base your retainer on the total estimated amount at the time you place your order. Refunds are discussed at the time when your wedding cake is booked.
3What form of payment do you accept?
We accept cash,debit, Mastercard and Visa for all transactions
4Is there a charge for the consultation? How long can we expect to be there?

There is not a fee for consultations, however if you would like to add a tasting with this appointment we charge $15.00 that must be prepaid in advance.

An hour and a half is set-aside for each client, which has proven to be ample time to both design and taste our cakes. Often, appointments are scheduled before and after yours so please plan to be on time so we have a full hour. Please keep in mind that cake samples are prepared specifically for your appointment. We ask for the courtesy of 48 hours’ notice if your appointment needs to be rescheduled.

Cancellations without the appropriate notice will be subject to a fee of $25 in order to rebook the appointment.


Consultations and Tastings

1Do you offer Consultations and tastings? How many people can I bring with me?
Yes, we offer a complimentary consultation for you and up to 3 guests. We are also happy to offer a cake tasting. If this is requested by you, we schedule an appointment for a charge of $15.00 to taste a preset menu. All tastings must be paid in advance by Mastercard or Visa. Although a cake tasting is an element of your event that often times the whole family is eager to be a part of, we've found it's a bit difficult to focus with too much input! Our studio can accommodate a total of four guests. Arrangements must be made in advance for more than two so we are sure to have enough cake for you. Please call in advance as all cake consultations are by appointment. We do not offer walk in cake consultations for brides. Please call 403.536.4368 to book your consultation today.
2 What do I need to bring to our appointment?
It is helpful to have made venue, color, and floral decisions prior to our meeting so we have that information available. Additionally, any element from your event that you feel we can draw inspiration from is great to bring. Pictures of your dress, venue, your invitations or design motif... a monogram, color swatches... a piece of wrapping paper that catches your eye... it can all be helpful. Or you may also just bring yourselves! Our portfolio has hundreds of cakes for you to browse through, and we have endless ideas. The design process is definitely a collaborative effort, and we'll keep going until you have a design you love.

Wedding

2Can I purchase additional slab cakes to keep the cost down for my wedding?

Additional slab cakes can be purchased for larger weddings and are offered in 3 sizes. Slabs are not decorated the same as a wedding cake and will be more cost effective. We do not decorate or place fondant on any slab slabs. They are simply meant to be kept in the kitchen as back up for extra slices

Option 2 - Allows for 40-50 slices. Costs $115.00

4How far in advance should I order a cake?
We are often booked up many weeks ahead of time so the sooner the better to reserve your place on our calendar. We require a minimum of one month but for weddings we suggest a minimum of six months to one year. We definitely attempt to accommodate last minute requests if our schedule allows. Please call or email to find out our availability for your particular date.
5If I want fresh flowers on my cake how can that be arranged?
We typically coordinate directly with your florist to ensure we are using the same varieties of flowers. All clients purchase the flowers and then Cakes With Attitude places them on the cake prior to delivery or at the event.
6I am not ready to make design decisions yet but I want to reserve our date so you don't get booked up, is that possible?
Yes. You may reserve your date with a $100 retainer. Final arrangements just need to be made at least 4 weeks prior to your event. Again, we ask that you be absolutely certain that you would like to work with us, as all retainers are date specific and non-refundable.
7Do you make individual cakes, cupcakes, cakepops and decorated cookies for weddings?

Yes we do offer gluten free and egg free cakes. I am sorry no dairy free cakes are offered at this time. Most of all our flavours and fillings can be converted however please ask for all details when placing your order about restrictions. We currently do not make sugar free, vegan cakes or dairy free cakes.

All of our ingredients are natural and of the highest quality, which is one of the reasons, our pricing tends to be just a bit higher than our competitors. We truly believe that ingredients really do make all the difference and are committed to using only the finest products available.

We are told time and time again by clients who have made it a priority to meet with every local baker imaginable, that our cakes are second to none. Come taste for yourself...

General

1How much does a custom celebration cake cost?

While it ranges from as little as $80 to upwards of several thousand (that’s a huge cake btw), cakes are priced based on a few elements:

First is the size of the cake you will need along with the custom detailing that will follow. Some cakes contain non-cake elements which are purchased from local and international retailers and wholesale establishments. These costs, and the cost of purchasing or importing them are included in the base price of a cake. The second element is difficulty, number of guests it will feed and the time that will be required to create the cake. Some cakes require a half an hour of decorating time while others may take days to create, deliver, set up etc.

2How far in advance should I order?
Usually at least 2 weeks’ notice is recommended, although we try to accommodate last minute orders when we can. Brides often contact us 4-6 months prior to their wedding date.
3Do you require a deposit?

Deposits are required on all orders. Orders less than $100.00 we do not require a deposit however we do keep a credit card on file. All orders exceeding $100.00 we require a $50.00 deposit with a credit card on file.

4What happens if I need to cancel or postpone my order for my custom cake?

In the event that you need to cancel or postpone you cake order we require a minimum of a 4 day notice. If notice is given less than 4 days all deposits will not be refunded. In the event that your cake has not been started we will keep your initial deposit as credit for you to use at a later date towards a future order.

Multiple tiered celebration cakes start at $150.00 and feed 18-25 guests.

They are party cakes and use standard pans such as round, square, heart or rectangle. These cakes are typically covered in buttercream and then fondant to provide a crisp, clean look. Please check our gallery for a wide range of celebration cakes we have done. Don't see something you like, please send us a picture you have in mind and we would be happy to recreate this for you.

7How much does a 3D sculptured cake cost? Can I have any flavour?

Sculptured cakes start at $80.00 and will feed 8-10 guests. A sculptured cake is a hand carved cake to look like an object. 3D cakes in my gallery average around $150-$400.00.

Large themed cakes are also based on the number of servings and difficulty. Please send pictures and the number of slices you would like your cake to be for us to provide an accurate price. If you’d like a flavour but don’t see it, feel free to ask…but keep in mind certain types (such as cheesecake, angel food, and mousses) may not be stable enough for a sculpted or tiered cake.
