Can I sample your cakes?
Absolutely, we welcome complimentary cake tasting appointments. Since a cake order must be placed with a signed contract 8 days prior to your pick up/delivery date, we suggest appointments be made accordinlgy. You can never come in too soon. In other words: We suggest making this appointment well in advance from your event date.
If you don’t have time for an appointment just yet and are in the early planning stages, we usually have a few pre-cut boxes of cake samples ready to pick up on a daily basis with some of the more popular flavors, please just call to confirm or ask at the Cupcake counter.
We can occassionally accomodate a walk-in meeting, but can’t always guarantee that a designer will be able to sit down with you. If your design will be selected from our albums or already made cakes (there are hundred and hundred) then you are more likely to be able to place that order during a walk-in.
How much advance notice is required to place an order?
In order to ensure availability, it is advised that you place your order as soon as you know you know want it. It is never to early to book for your event date. We do require 8 days advance notice on most orders.
What should I bring with me on a cake tasting?
Bring color samples, magazine cut outs, sketches, invitations and other items that will help create your one of a kind creation. Feel free to bring 1-2 others with you. It may be difficult to accomdate more than this amount of guests. Appointments can range from 20-60 minutes.
Do you have pictures of cakes you have done?
Yes, we have many albums full of pictures that we have created over the years. FLICKR is a great way to sort through all our albums.
Do you deliver?
We certainly do. For some designs we stongly recommend delivery if set up is involved. Delivery charges depend on destination distance.
What is better: Fondant or Buttercream?
Both have their advantages. It’s a matter of preference. We work well with both types of finishes. Not all filling types are appropriate for fondant cakes though.
Do I have to provide you with flowers for my wedding cake?
You may, but we can certainly provide those for you. It is best that the cake designer complete the look of her masterpiece. We assume NO responsibility when someone else touches OUR cake. Why is it so personal…because we spend many hours working on our cakes…it’s super personal.
Have you ever been on TV?
A Sweet Design competed on the hit show Cupcake Wars on Food Network placing 2nd and prior to that filmed for an episode of Fabulous Cakes. We made a huge, over the top sculpted cake. It was so much fun You can view the clip here
Why is A Sweet Design the BEST?
We pride ourselves in the work that we do. Every single cake matters and we work very hard from beginning to end. Clients become a part of our family so it’s important to create a cake that we would serve to our loved ones!!!
