FAQ's & Contract
Are You Interior Health Approved?
You bet! We are a legal, licensed, health inspected store front business. We work out of a commercially inspected kitchen and meet all Interior Health regulations.
How far in advance should I place my order?
Make sure you reserve your date well in advance. We are a small custom cake boutique, so we take orders only until we reach our capacity. Some weekends book up over a year in advance, other times we may be able to accommodate you with as little as a few weeks notice. As soon as the date is set for your event, we recommend calling and reserving your date. You will need to know the approximate number of guests to reserve the date. Any other details you have at that time will be helpful.
As everything is made fresh per order we are unable to accommodate same day cake orders. We do have a daily selection of cupcakes and treats available in store for last minute requirements.

Consultations days are limited to Monday-Wednesday and evening appointments are not available. Sometimes scheduling doesn’t allow for a sit down consultation and tasting pack pick up can be arranged for anytime during store hours.
How do I cut a cake?
People are often inclined to cut a round cake into pie shaped pieces. This will result it oversized slices and fewer servings from your cake. For cakes 8” or larger in diameter this video will be helpful. Use a knife rinsed with hot water throughout the cutting process exercising caution. This will help facilitate clean, uniform slices.
