Wedding cakes are becoming more and more individualized. You have your choice of shape, colors, flavors, styles, and decorations. You can choose to have a heart shape, square, hexagonal, traditional round, or a combination. Try some new shapes like elongated octagon or paisley shape. You can choose to have the layers stacked, separated by pillars, or use one of the unique stands available at Fantasy In Frosting such as the mirrored revolving stand or a silver cake plateau, all at no extra charge.
Cakes may be decorated with piped icing, or you may choose to use fresh flowers, beading, or specialty icing flowers to express your special style. Icing may be done in a variety of colors to match your wedding scheme, or choose to have it all white or ivory.
You can choose from a variety of flavors. Delicious fillings to complement our cake flavors are very popular with today's brides. Each tier may be a different flavor with no additional fee.
Whatever you choose, you can have confidence in Fantasy In Frosting for your special occasion. If you wish us to match your wedding color, please provide us with a swatch at time of order, or at least 1 week prior to wedding.
The design of your wedding cake is one of the most important parts of your wedding plans. We have several books of pictures for you to browse plus our portfolio of cakes we have created for other brides. To make the cake uniquely yours, we allow you to combine cake designs, such as the set-up of one and the decorations from another.
If you have found a picture elsewhere of a cake you would like, bring it with you.
A wedding cake must be at least 88 servings to use a fountain design. There is a $20.00 fee for fountain set-up which includes fresh greens and baby's breath. This charge is waived for cakes greater than 200 servings.
The base icing can be white, ivory, or a pale pastel in the bridal color. Icing flowers on the cake can be matched to most colors, however some colors are difficult to match in icing. If you have a color that cannot be matched, consider using silk flowers, ribbons or a complementing color. We may make suggestions on how best to use your color in the design of the wedding cake.
If using fresh flowers on the cake, you will be given a sketch of the cake to help you make arrangements with your florist. The florist must arrange the flowers on the cake. There will be an extra charge if we have to arrange fresh flowers.

What is the Groom's cake?
The groom's cake is a long-standing southern tradition. It was similar to that of a fruitcake, being that it was quite rich with many dried fruits and nuts. The legend was that small pieces of the cake were placed in boxes for the unmarried female guests to place under their pillow, and supposedly, the man they dreamt of would eventually be their husband.
If you do elect to have a groom's cake, it could be along the theme of something he enjoys doing. For a football player (or just a fan), get him a cake that looks like a football. Cakes can be themed for golf, fishing scenes and similar topics. Chocolate cakes with chocolate icing are the most common flavor, but may be in any flavor. A favorite is a cake adorned with chocolate dipped strawberries.
There are claims that the groom's cake was to be served to the bridesmaids by the groom with a glass of wine. Another claim states that the groom's cake is to be saved and shared with friends after the honeymoon. You may wish to serve the groom's cake at the rehearsal dinner. We at Fantasy In Frosting will be glad to help you decide on a unique and memorable groom's cake.
We can make custom shaped mints for your wedding, rehearsal dinner, shower or any special occasion. For the cake and gift tables, or for each table, mints make an attractive and inexpensive table decoration or favor. We can match or complement wedding colors. Mints can be in wedding shapes or with an initial on them, from fire hats to dice, brides to daisies. Ask about our large variety of molds from funny to formal. All shapes are also available in milk, dark or white chocolate. Samples available while in the shop upon request.
The current base price is $3.50/serving. Fondant iced cakes start at $4.50/serving; cheesecakes start at $4.00/serving. Because the wedding cake can be as unique as the bride, pricing may vary according to the design. The cost of your wedding cake is on a per slice basis. A slice of wedding cake is 1" x 2" x 4" large. There may be an extra charge if the cake is intricate in details, if there is an excessive number of icing flowers or pearls, or if it has some specialty technique or icing. A $50.00 nonrefundable and nontransferable down payment is due at the time of ordering with the balance due 2 weeks prior to the wedding date. No refunds or credits will be given on cancellations within 2 weeks of the wedding date.
A deposit on the stand and supports is charged in addition to the price of the cake. This will be refunded in full when the parts used in the set-up of your cake are cleaned and returned to Fantasy In Frosting within 3 business days after the wedding date.
Checks left for the security deposit may not be cashed. All pieces used in the cake (anything not edible) must be returned cleaned and in good condition within 3 business days or there will a charge to cover the retail price of the missing or damaged item.
