At OMG It's Cake Bakery we like to take our time getting to know our customers. During your design consultation appointment is the perfect opportunity to sample many of our popular cake flavors and discuss the design of your special cake.
Inspirations can come from the tiniest detail about your event. To get the most out of your time, we ask that you come prepared with some knowledge of the cake designs that appeal to you. The more informed you are, and the more you know about the kinds of cake designs that you like, the better we will be able to collaborate throughout the creative process. If you find a picture online, it can easily be emailed to us ahead of your appointment.
Consultations are by appointment only to ensure that your design time goes uninterrupted. This allows us to focus on creating the perfect cake for your wedding or large event. The appointment lasts about 30 – 45 minutes. If you should need to reschedule, or cancel, we ask that you contact us no later than 48 hours in advance. If you have a planning folder, have it available. We’ll draw inspiration from the attire, the floral, the ceremony and reception sites, and other details from your day. We’ve found cake designs in the most unlikely of places, so don’t be afraid to bring in whatever you have!
You will have time to look through our recent cake designs for ideas on cake basics and to get a feel for the shape, layout, and other design features you like. If you have seen any cakes online or elsewhere, have pictures printed out for us to view or email them to us before the consultation. From there, we combine things from your event with things from cakes that you’ve seen and liked to create an original design for your cake. Your event is unique, your cake should be one of a kind!
We’ll determine the best size for your cake based on the number of guests, your budget and the look of the cakes that you like.
Tasting and Appointments
Consultations & tastings by appointment only.
OMG It's Cake Bakery will contact you to schedule an appointment to discuss your design. When we meet we get to know you and about your event, sketch out designs if needed and provide a selection of samples to try. Our tastings are $25.00 for 4 selections: 4 cakes and 4 frostings and fillings. We always provide Vanilla Buttercream for each tasting, so this does not need to be counted as a choice. If you place a cake order with us after the appointment, $15 will be deducted from the total cost of your cake.
We’d like as much lead-time as possible…but if you have a short notice order, ask us, and we’ll try to get it done for you! We personally work with each client and since all our cakes are made to order we usually require 2 to 4 weeks lead time. However, don’t hesitate to contact us even if your request is not within the timeframe, as we often have last minute openings and may be able to accomodate your event.
The average decoration time on one of our wedding cakes is 15-36 hours! That doesn’t include baking, or any of the frosting items made in advance (see below). Why so long? First of all, we do not have mass-produced stock designs, each cake is a unique creation. We meticulously copy lace and embroidery details onto the fondant with a stylus or pin prick technique. We custom match all of our colors to swatches supplied by our clients. Our cakes are often hand-painted or lustered.
Our bow loops, gum paste flowers and sugar paste details are all created in-house in advance to ensure ample drying time.
Delivery and Set-up
Cakes are delivered to the reception/event site by OMG It's Cake Bakery. We stack the tiers as necessary on site and add the finishing touches.
