Where do I get a cake stand?

Stands are not necessary but add some height and elegance to your table display. I do not provide metal pedestals or stands for your wedding cakes. You may rent them locally at Rental Depot and Bob White rents. Your caterer, florist, or venue coordinator may also provide these. Other ideas- Mirror, glass pedestal, box draped with fabric, ring of small stands/glass vases/ glass bricks/ 

Check out Pinterest for some amazing ideas.

What are my choices for flowers on the wedding cake?

Flowers may be added to any design. I can provide edible  flowers or I can use silk flowers provided by you. I must have silk flowers before the wedding day. I will not add them on-site. Fresh flowers must be provided and applied by your florist. Please research your fresh flower choice. Many flowers are poisonous and should not be put on your cake.

Will you cut the wedding cake?

I don’t offer cake serving or table decorating services. Here are a few articles that may be helpful for serving your cake.

What is a Groom’s cake?

The groom’s cake is a southern tradition! It isn’t required but adds fun and another flavor choice for your guests. The groom’s cake usually reflects his interests and personality. If you can’t find an appropriate theme, please ask me for ideas.

Who’s initial comes first for the cake monogram?
Traditionally, he bride’s initial should come first, then the Groom’s last initial (large) and then his first initial. For example: Jane and Ronald Brown would be JBR.
