Frequently Asked Questions

Like any custom product, my cakes are one-of-a-kind, personally designed, and hand crafted.  They're not mass-produced or baked ahead of time and frozen until needed.  Each design is carefully considered, planned, and executed to perfection.  I'll stop at nothing to ensure each of my clients are presented with a stunning masterpiece on their wedding day!

My cakes reflect the value of elegant craftsmanship, sugar artistry, thousands of hours of experience, and a highly personal level of service.  The result is not only a cake that tastes delicious, but a piece of art that will act as a focal point, a conversation piece, and a memorable aspect of your event.  You won't be disappointed!

Single tiers start at $300. Tiered cakes generally range from $8-16 per slice. There are many factors that influence the final price of a design, so please reach out for a better estimate based on your specific needs and guest count.

How far in advance do I need to order?


Custom design work takes time and planning, so I appreciate at least 3 months' notice for all orders.  I accept a limited number of orders per weekend so that I can give each of my couples my best and most creative work, so I recommend starting the process as soon as you have a good sense of your decor and overall feel of the event.

If you're not there yet but you know you want Enticing Icing to be part of your event, you can secure your date with a $500 non-refundable deposit and we'll pick up the design process as your event approaches.

Unfortunately, I can't accept any wedding cake orders within 1 month of the event date.  Trying to squeeze in new orders at the last minute disrupts my schedule and steals time that I've already committed to other couples.  If you have a last minute need, I'm happy to recommend a few trusted local designers who may be able to accommodate your request!


When to order

All orders require a signed contract and non-refundable deposit payment to reserve your event date.




Ideal:  3-18 months in advance

Last chance:  1 month from event date


Ideal:  1-2 months in advance

Last chance:  1 week from event date



DO you make all theSE cakes YOURSELF?


Yes!  In addition to being your point of contact throughout the process, I personally bake, decorate, and deliver all of my wedding cakes.

Doing this solo means my time is limited.  In order to maintain the high level of service that each of my couples deserve, I only accept a few orders per weekend.  Please don't delay if you're interested in working together!

Do you offer gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan?


Most of my flavors can be prepared for gluten-sensitive diets; however, I don't recommend my services for those with serious gluten-allergies.  I don't currently offer dairy-free or vegan cakes.
