Welcome....

 

...to Whimsy Cakes! 

   Making beautiful cakes has been a part of my families history for a very long time. My great grandmother, grandmother and mom made cakes for social gatherings, their church and their children. My mother spent most of her days, as I do, baking happily in the kitchen creating all types of home cooked goodies with love. We would come home after school or other functions to sweet or savory smells from the kitchen, we couldn't wait to dig in! My grandmother and mother were traditional bakers and decorators and their sweets delighted young and old. 

I now have live chat available to answer any questions you may have, please keep in mind if I do not answer via live chat in a timely manner I can not respond to any questions once you leave so please go to my contact page to send a inquiry with your email so I can send a reply.  Facebook is also a great way to send your inquiries and is as simple as clicking the Facebook symbol to reach me. 

Hello March! The weather sure has been crazy, warm one day, then rain or snow the next day. Mother Nature can't make up her mind😆How are you coping? 

 I just want to pop in and say thank you all SO much for your patience. Since I started taking orders in January I have been non stop busy! 

        I am taking orders for 2024 and require a $20 non-refundable deposit/retainer(50% of balance for wedding cakes) to save your date. I will no longer save your date without the deposit/retainer. I will send a reminder to pay once, if no response within a couple days I will give your spot to the next person on my cancelation list. I try to be accommodating as possible.

I am still limiting how many orders I do a week because family is still my number one priority so if I am not able to fit you in, I apologize for that inconvenience, I can put you on my cancellation list or send you referrals to other talented local bakers who can assist you with your order.

I love what I do and I love being creative and using my talent to bring joy to others. Being a part of your special event is such an honor for me!

  With taking care of my dad and having a family of my own I am not always able to respond quickly to customers so please be patient, I do everything by myself, I have no assistants. If having to wait a day or 2 for a response is too long for you I would completely understand if you decided to go with another baker and I can send you referrals to some lovely ones. My family comes first always. Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to assisting you! 😊

                                          

                                                                                 Please note..

Such as it is with most other businesses, I have raised my prices due to costs of ingredients, power, water, gas and other supply hikes that continue to happen all over. I have talked to many other private bakers who are struggling with ingredient and supply costs, a few have decided to close their business because it is just too difficult for them to sustain. I do not want that to happen to me. 😔

 If you have been given a price quote and paid a deposit, your price is locked in and will not be raised. 

  I have posted my available dates next to this message, quite a few customers put their orders in a year ago for 2024 so I will change the availability periodically to reflect spots taken by new customers. These spots fill up fast and I try my hardest to accommodate as many customers as I can. Please see my updated Terms Of Service page for updated information regarding deposits, terms of service, care of your order and other important information. I have also simplified a few of my website pages, removed some services and updated my gallery with a bunch of new cakes so enjoy!

 Please follow me on Instagram and Facebook for updates as I'll have some new exciting things to show and maybe something new to offer!
