How much will my cake cost?
Many factors are involved in determining the cost of your custom cake as every cake is made to order and priced individually. The final price will depend on number of servings, the complexity of the design, and number of tiers. Most of our tiered wedding cakes average between $6-$10 per serving. Specialty cakes average between $4-$8 per serving.
Do you offer cake tastings or consultations?
Yes, for weddings, we offer a cake tasting to sample a selection of our delectable cake flavors and fillings for wedding cakes serving 75 guests and up. For under 75, we provide sample cupcakes for you to try. Tastings are $35 (sample boxes are $25), which is waived should you book your wedding cake with Lysa's Cake'tique. Please fill out our contact form and we will get back to you with our availability.
How far in advance should I place my order?
Wedding Cakes- Couples are encouraged to schedule a consultation as soon as an event date has been set. Usually five - nine months out is ideal to save your date for a wedding cake, but please inquire at any time and we will tell you our availability and schedule your consultation. Currently booking 2018-2019 weddings and we do fill up quickly! A 50% deposit is required to secure your date, 50% of the balance is due 1 month before your event date. Of course, we know that life happens, contact us and we’ll help you get the party started!
What do I need to bring to the cake consultation?
During our meeting, we will work on a custom cake design that represents the full vision you have in mind for your event. Please bring anything that you would like to incorporate into your design and/or the inspiration behind your wedding. We can pull inspiration from invitations, centerpieces, décor, bouquets, venue, theme, heirloom, or dress!
Can we rent Cake Stands?
Yes. We have a number of elegant stands available for rent. To rent a cake stand you must pay a refundable deposit and a rental fee. Please contact us for more details.
I saw a photo of a cake that I love, can you recreate it?
If you saw an image of a cake that you fell in love with, please bring a photo with you to your consultation. We are able to use your photo as inspiration, but it will not be the exact cake. Lysa’s Cake’tique believes each client should have a custom cake designed for them. Your cake should be special and reflect you!
Do you create Special Event Cakes?
Although we love to create dream wedding cakes, we do offer special event cakes. Keep in mind that our availability is limited. Our minimum price for celebration cakes is $250. Please contact us if you are interested in placing an order for your special event.
Do you deliver?
Yes, we are happy to deliver your cake and desserts within the greater Philadelphia and tri-state area. Please contact us for delivery charges, as the price of delivery will vary based on distance. This price is in addition to the cost of your cake. We do not ship cakes and desserts at this time.
Are there gluten free/dairy free/vegan options?
At this time, we do not offer nut, gluten free, or dairy free options. We do look forward to having these options available soon. So stay tuned!
Do you have a storefront where I can walk in and purchase a cake or view your work?
