Do you replicate cake designs?
Unfortunately, we do not replicate cake designs. We love to see photos of ideas that you like that we can take inspiration from, but we will create something completely unique for you!
Do you make fondant covered cakes?
We do not make fully fondant covered cakes. All of our cakes are covered in an eggless Swiss meringue buttercream, but we can make decorations from fondant.
Will you make ANY design we request?
We are very selective in the designs we choose to make. If we don’t feel like we are the right fit, we are happy to refer you to another baker that may suit the design better that you are requesting.
How much notice do you require?
2-4 weeks is appreciated but we may be able to accommodate last minute orders depending on availability for that week. Some designs will require items that need to be ordered online, so 4 weeks is best. The best option for a last minute order would be a Party Cake (set design/price) or something without custom made decorations such as a drip floral cake or a piped buttercream cake.
How far in advance do you book?
We only take inquiries/bookings two months at a time. We will not provide quotes more than two months in advance.
Do you take orders with allergies?
We are not a nut, soy or wheat free kitchen. Unfortunately, if the allergy is severe, we will not be able to accommodate.
Where is pickup?
Pickup is in St. Albert. Address will be provided once booking is confirmed.
Do you offer delivery?
Yes! Delivery is available for an extra charge based off location and order size.
Do you offer setup with delivery?
Unfortunately, we are not offering setup at this time.
Do you require a deposit?
All orders require a 50% non refundable, non transferable deposit to confirm the order. All payments must be made through etransfer. The final balance is due two weeks before the event date. If the order total is $100 or less OR the order is placed within two weeks of the event date, the full payment will be due at time of booking.
Do you offer refunds?
Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds. All sales are final.
Do you offer tastings?
We are not offering tastings at this time. Once in awhile, we may have a selection if mixed treat boxes available that will be offered in our Instagram stories. Please visit @afewcakes on Instagram for updates.
Do you have a minimum order amount?
Yes, we require a minimum order total of $60.
