Each wedding cake is created based on your specific needs, and as a result there is no "pre-set" pricing, or "average cost" of a wedding cake. I am happy to work out an estimate for what you desire, and the first step in accomplishing this is to discuss your vision in a consultation or a tasting.
Please be aware that there is a longer turnaround time for creating estimates during months where there are an abundance of weddings. I will do my best to schedule tastings and consults during these times, but please understand that during May-June and September-October I have very limited time in which to work out new estimates.
* I do book out months in advance for certain dates, so it is always better to plan more ahead than you might think. The average for couples starting this process is 8 months in advance. I try my best to accommodate in under 2 months, assuming that I have the availability, but some designs may have to be simplified.
Tastings must be scheduled a minimum of one week ahead of time and are subject to availability. There is a $45 fee that must be paid when booking, $30 of that will be applied to your wedding cake if you decide to book with Sugar Mamas. Tastings are up to an hour long. At least one week prior to your tasting, you will choose up to three flavors each of cake, filling, and frosting. At your tasting, you will not receive three assembled cakes, rather we will mix and match your unfrosted cake layers with your bowls of filling and frosting.
Consults are free of charge and are fifteen minutes long. They must be scheduled ahead of time and can be in person or by phone and are also subject to availability.
The following is a brief rundown of preparation for your tasting/consult so that we can effectively and promptly get an estimate to you.
What to Bring and to Expect for Your Wedding Cake Tasting or Consultation
Please PRINT out copies of any pictures of wedding cakes that you would like for me to see. If you just like elements of certain ones, that is fine, bring them with you and we will add it to your folder. Please do not show me pictures on your phone, I need to have a hard copy printed out.
Please also visit the either the Photos tab here on the website or check the albums on the Facebook page (Sugar Mamas Flagstaff). Look in the albums section at the various cake designs to see if you like any of those, specifically “wedding cakes”, “aspen cakes”, and “stand-alone wedding cakes”. Please consider if you are wanting to feed all of your guests with one cake, or a small cutting cake with side cakes, or cupcakes.
Consider if you are wanting to have a multi tiered cake or a stand alone (one single cake, not stacked).
Please have an idea of how many people you are wanting to serve as well as the location of your wedding.
Think about what flavors you like and whether you want a premium filling or not. Flavor options are available to see under the "menu" tab on this site.
Consider if you will be needing/wanting delivery. Certain options lend themselves better for self-delivery. If you have a budget or price range in mind, I can most likely help you find options within that.
If you are wanting options other than cake, please request a copy of my “dessert bar/little bites” menu. Additionally, you can pick out any combination of other pastries from my Menu at sugarmamasflagstaff.com
At your tasting or consult, we will look at your printed-out pictures, discuss your specific needs, and I will take that information and create an estimate for you. Your estimate will be emailed to you within one to two weeks, if not sooner.
Thank you for your interest in Sugar Mamas for being a part of your special day…..we look forward to creating something delicious and beautiful for you
