It is against health code regulations for us to ship any food products. We cannot control the shipping environments and unpredictable transporting of items.
As soon as possible! We take deposits up to 18 months in advance, but popular weekends can book quickly. While we can take multiple weddings in a weekend, we are limited based on delivery, quantity, and detail of designs.
Custom Cakes (weddings and larger events) require a minimum 3 month lead time, but availability cannot be guaranteed.
Signature Cakes (birthdays and smaller events) require a minimum 4 weeks lead time.
Of course! We allow for pick up of tiered cakes up to 60 servings, with additional servings if any are needed. Please inquire for availability for a pick up!
No, we do not offer sheet cakes. All of our cakes are torted with four layers of cake and three layers of filling (as shown on our flavors page). We are all about consistency with our cake slices and presentation.
No, we do not offer cupcakes on our menu. But we do have many delicious alternatives, as shown on our portfolio and flavors pages.
Unfortunately, no. Due to the restrictions in place since COVID-19 along with health codes, we cannot have children under the age of 16 in our kitchen. Our tastings occur in our fully functioning kitchen and there are many risks with certain equipment and sanitation. We are happy to send you home with samples for them to try our cakes.
Private Tasting: A private tasting is a one-on-one opportunity for our couples and clients who wish to attend a tasting prior to booking or creating a contract. It also allows us time to go over design details for their cake. However, the tasting is limited to pre-filled slices of cake to sample and appointments are booked in advance. Private tastings can also include pastry tastings for an additional fee.
Group Tasting: A group tasting includes multiple couples or clients, but includes all of our available cake and filling flavors. This will allow you to mix-and-match your own flavor combinations! Our team is present and happy to help with combinations or new creations. We can talk about your design and wedding day, though we may not have the one-on-one experience of a private tasting. Group tastings do not include the option for a pastry tasting. (Please note that this is not a walk-in event, appointments are still required.)
For more info, check out our Tastings Page.
Based on our 2022 season, the average event was about $10-$12 per guest for cake and $15 per guest for pastries. This could vary based on design, flavors, selection of pastries, and cost of delivery. Please inquire for a more personalized quote.
Our bakery offers products with peanuts, tree nuts, milk, coconut, eggs, and wheat. While we take steps to minimize the risk of cross contamination, we cannot guarantee that our products are 100% free of all allergens. We do offer Gluten Free cakes (chocolate and vanilla) and our buttercream is naturally gluten free. However, it is made in an environment where it can be exposed to gluten. We are willing to partner with other GF/DF/Vegan bakeries for these needs should they be severe.
Did you know that we hide a tiny sugar ladybug on all of our cakes? It's our little signature and a symbol of good luck for our clients. We have been making hundreds (nay thousands) of ladybugs since Kim started the Bella e Dolce brand in 1997! Make sure to look for it on your big day!
