When do I have to know my guest count?

  • We understand that guest counts change in the time leading up to the big day. We require the final guest count to be submitted two weeks before your wedding day.

 

I’m not sure I want a wedding cake. Do you offer any other desserts?

  • Of course! We offer a great variety of cookies, mini cheesecakes and pies, French macarons, and mini desserts for weddings and events. Feel free to ask us if there’s something particular you’re looking for.
