Q. What is Fondant?
A – Fondant (also known as Sugar paste) is what gives the smooth look on a cake. It is an edible frosting that is usually placed over a covering of Buttercream. It provides more stability and acts as a sealant to the cake especially during hot days. In years past, fondant was not a welcome taste to the palate. Because we do place a layering of Buttercream underneath our fondant cakes, if you have guests that do not like the taste it can be easily peeled away. You can still have the great look of fondant without losing the great taste! .

A – Yes we do deliver. Delivery rates depend on the delivery area. Please ensure that the venue that we are to deliver to is open and that we can gain entry to the facility at the time of delivery.

We cannot be responsible for any issues that arise if delivery was attempted and was unsuccessful .
Q. Do you rent stands i can use for displaying my cake
