Cake Flavors

When it comes to picking the perfect cake flavors and combinations, it can be a headache trying to please everyone, especially when there can be so many options to choose from.  Ideally, the couple should decide what they like FIRST, and then find ways to ensure that their guests will be happy as well.

Here at Frost Eat Love, each tier of cake can be a different flavor at no additional charge for requesting more than one flavor.  Consider offering cupcakes or other sweets if it's simply not in the budget to offer a huge 3-tier cake. Guests feel cared for because you're giving them additional options, trust me! 

 

TIP: Another way to keep costs low is to have a smaller tiered cake at the reception, to be seen by all and to be photographed, and to also have a sheet cake in the back for your guests.  They will NOT care how the slice of cake looks- they just want cake.

Current Wedding Cake Options:

Traditional Wedding Cake/Almond

Chocolate

Vanilla

Orange Dream

Red Velvet

Lemon

Roasted Banana

Strawberries n' Cream

Bourbon Chocolate

Yellow

Rum Cake

Who doesn't love a cake sampler?  It's an excellent way to try multiple cakes at once in order to find out exactly what you like, what you can expect, and more!  At Frost Eat Love, you can find two different ways to make your own customized sampler:

1. Create your own cupcake sampler by selecting from over fifty different cake/filling/frosting combinations, and then you'll receive two of each, fully filled (f you choose) and frosted cupcakes

 

2. Choose six different cupcake flavors, four fillings, and four frostings, and then it's up to YOU to mix and match which combinations you feel work best together. 

 

Wedding cupcake samples are ordered directly online for pick-up, to enjoy at your convenience with your loved ones, this is if you choose to share.  To order your sample today, click:

Pricing

Who knew that weddings cost money?  Here at Frost Eat Love, we don't believe that cakes should cost more simply because they're for a wedding.  Therefore, the pricing for wedding and non-wedding cakes are the exact same.  6" tiers start at $35, ranging all the way to 14" tiers costing $100.  The final cost will come down to flavors, sizes, decorations, etc., as well as delivery distance.  Currently, there are no set-up fees.  

 

TIP: I do NOT encourage wedding cakes to be picked up or exchanged as it is quite obvious when wedding cakes are not set up be a professional who has years of experience, and they are a huge part of your wedding!

Wedding FAQ's

  • What is the recommended "procedure" for wedding cakes?

    1. Talk with your partner to discuss your

      1. Favorite flavors

      2. Design

      3. What's most important to you BOTH when it comes to providing desserts for your guests 

    2. Find out the following to share with your cake consultant:

      1. Any and all food allergies for anyone coming to the wedding

      2. Estimated guest size

      3. Venue basics- indoor/outdoor, exposure to sun/heat, if and how much time do they allow for setting up the cake

      4. Date and time of reception AND ceremony

    3. Check out the sampler options and possibly place an order.  Once you enjoy your sample, I can provide a rough estimate based on past cake conversations to help you make your final decisions.

    4. Speaking of, the next step is to make your final decision on cake flavors, fillings, frostings, and any additional desserts needed, such as cupcakes, cookies, etc.

    5. Once all of this information has been discussed, the quote will be updated to then be approved by the couple.  It will be converted to a final invoice, and the deposit, equal to 50% of the order is due immediately.  See following question for answers on due dates.

  • What is money due (for weddings)?

    • The deposit, equal to 50% of the total, is due as soon as the invoice has been sent​

    • There is NO charge for cake consulting or setting up your wedding cake​

    • Cake samples can be ordered on this website, and yes, there is a charge.  I do not remove the wedding sampler from the final invoice because they require a lot of time, money, and energy to prepare.

    • There is a delivery fee for any venues more than 30 minutes to AND from my home location off Timberlake Road in Lynchburg, equivalent to $15/hour for travel time only.

  • Do you provide cake stands?

My own wedding day

April 2022

1) Don't forget that it is about the TWO OF YOU!  While everyone will have opinions, try to find a balance between what you want and what would make your guests happy.

2) Though more on a personal level, I highly recommend pre-marital counseling.  Many couples may be unwilling to do this because they simply aren't willing to share and really open up.  You will both learn so much about yourself and your partner!  The fact is that we don't know what the future holds, but taking this opportunity to "put it all out there" will highly increase your chances for a long and happy marriage.  If you're being honest with yourself, it's better to have these conversations before getting married to learn how to communicate, compromise, and so much more!

3) Your Big Day will fly by so quickly.  Try to take a few minutes after your ceremony and before photos to spend with your partner as you are now married!

If you have any questions, please do NOT hesitate to reach out!
