A. Yes, at Bombon Cake Gallery we offer one complimentary tasting and consultation (Wedding/event must be 100 people or more) for you and one guest. Although, cake tasting is an element of your event (that often times, the whole family is eager to be 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.
A. An hour 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 $50 in order to reschedule the cake tasting.
A. We suggest you call to book your appointment a 2-3 weeks before you’ll like to come in, plan to come in about 3 to 6 months before your occasion.
A. It is helpful to have venue information, color and floral decision prior to our meeting. Additionally, any element from your event, that you feel, we can draw an inspiration from. It is also useful, if you bring pictures of your dress, venue, invitations, a monogram or color swatches.
A. 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. Pricing starts at $4.50 per serving for a plain iced cake. Our prices tend to average from $5 to $7.50 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 $3.50 per serving.
