Do you have a retail shop where I can stop in to order or purchase a cake?

No, we are a by appointment shop. Call or email us to set up an appointment. Click here for map and directions.

When should I book my cake?

  • Custom Wedding and custom party cakes need at least one month’s notice to book. We recommend booking early (2-6 months in advance) to avoid disappointment.
  • Because our Simply CTR Wedding Cakes have already been designed, the lead time is much shorter for these cakes. Depending on availability, we can take an order with as little as 2 weeks notice.
  • Customization of your Simply CTR Celebration Cake will increase the amount of lead time that we will need.

Do you need an appointment for a Simply CTR Cake?

  • A meeting is optional for our Simply CTR Wedding Cakes. As these designs are set, except for color and size, all the planning can be done via phone or email. We offer a complimentary pick up tasting to be arranged at your convenience. You will be able to try a total of 4 choices from our Simply CTR Wedding Cake Combinations.
