When is the best time to order my cake?
The sooner the better! As soon as you have a date and reception location established, you may order your cake. The price of the cake is guaranteed at contract signing. All orders must be finalized and paid in full no later than two weeks prior to your wedding date.
What should I bring with me for my tasting/consultation?
Please come with a cake budget in mind so that we can be sure to stay on track with what you want to spend. Also, we welcome pictures or sketches of the cake you have in mind. (If you don’t have any, don’t worry! We have plenty of ideas and photos to share with you.)
How much will a Fifth Ave Cakes wedding cake cost?
Our round tiered cakes start at $4.00 per serving. Pricing is determined based upon the complexity of your cake—how much labor is involved, and the materials and ingredients used to create it.
What if I have to cancel my appointment?
If you must cancel, please contact us at least 48 hours before your scheduled appointment. We often have a waiting list of couples who would like an appointment, so we can accommodate them during that time.
Will you cover my cake in rolled fondant?
Yes! We love the smooth, stylish, and very sophisticated look of rolled fondant. The base price for a fondant covered wedding cake is $6.00 per serving. However, we are known for our delicious buttercream frosting and we make every effort to get it as smooth as possible.
Is it more cost effective to have a smaller cake for decoration, and serve undecorated cakes to the guests?
Although this option is less costly, the beauty, majesty, and overall visual impact of the towering bridal cake is compromised. We recommend ordering a cake large enough to serve all of your guests.
Should I bring my ornaments to the bakery before the wedding?
Because certain ornaments or figurines are too tall or heavy for the cake, we will need to see what you have in mind. You will be responsible to have them at the reception hall when the cake is delivered.
Do you deliver your cakes?
Yes! At Fifth Ave Cakes, only bakery professionals handle our cakes from the initial order to the final delivery and set up. This ensures a flawless, perfectly elegant presentation of your custom wedding cake.
Delivery fees are based upon time and mileage round trip.
When do I return the items or stands used to assemble my cakes?
We hold a deposit based on the retail value of the items used to assemble your cake. We appreciate the return of these items within 3 days of the event for cake stands, and within a week for plates and pillars.
