Molly B's F.A.Q's

Minimize

How far in advance should I book a wedding cake?

Generally, there is no set time to reserve a wedding cake.  It is not uncommon to have sold out dates during the bridal seasons; Molly B’s suggests 6-10 months out for wedding cakes. If over a year, bookings are accepted with a nominal deposit to reserve the date and pricing.  Please note that your wedding cake is important to us as it is to you, Molly B’s limits the number of commitments made to ensure that your wedding cake is perfect for your big day. Last minute requests are taken pending availability.

What is the price of the Wedding Cake?

Prices vary depending upon the amount of detailed work, or specialty items you require. During the appointment, our pastry chefs will discuss tiered pricing so you can choose from many of our designs and pricing options.  Tiered pricing averages out to be approximately $5.95 and up.  However, keep me in mind that custom made design elements and gourmet filling etc. can increase your cost.

Do you offer cake tastings?

Cake tasting fee and consultations are $25.00 which can be applied to you cake when you book with us. Cake tastings are done by appointment only during business hours Thursday – Friday and last about an hour.  Weekend appointments are difficult due to delivery times etc.  However; if this is the only time you can schedule an appointment, we will try to work with you.

What do you require to design a wedding cake?

Any elements you wish use such as a wedding cake, invitation, jewelry, flowers, color swatches, etc. can be used.  You may also bring photos of cake designs you may like to give us ideas on what you are looking for in a design.  All cakes are original and unique.
