Wedding Cakes

Sweet Life has been in the wedding cake business for over 25 years and has designed thousands of beautiful and delicious wedding cakes. Our artistic and technically adept wedding cake experts will create the wedding cake of your dreams. We make all our cakes from scratch using the finest quality ingredients available. We use Guittard chocolate, local hormone-free dairy, natural flavorings, fair-trade, pesticide-free real vanilla, expeller-pressed non-GMO and trans-fat free oils. We use some organic and locally-grown ingredients. We also offer cupcakes, grooms' cakes and dessert buffets for weddings.

 

We offer two lines of wedding cakes, the Custom Tiered Wedding Cakes, and the Short & Sweet Cakes:

 

CUSTOM TIERED CAKES - start at $300, and include lots of "extras" such as consultation, cake samples, fresh flowers, and an almost unlimited array of designs. We offer custom shapes and sizes, and can create a beautiful, custom-designed cake to suit your particular needs. The final price will depend on the complexity of the design and the size of the cake. You will be able to discuss all of the options with your cake designer. There is a 50% non-refundable deposit required to secure the date, and the balance is due two weeks before the event date. Delivery is available starting at $25 for up to five miles ($2/mile after that), and includes set-up as needed.

    

 

 

SHORT & SWEET CAKES - come in three sizes: 25 serving (starting at $110), 40 serving (starting at $145) and 50 serving (starting at $175). Cost may increase depending on the complexity of the design. Fresh flowers are not available for these cakes. There is a 50% non-refundable deposit requires to secure the date, and the balance is due one week before the event date. Limited delivery (no set-up) is available for $32 (within 10 miles), contingent on our schedule.

  

 

CONSULTATIONS - can be scheduled for a $50 fee, payable in advance with at least two days' notice. Since a consultation is included with the price of a Custom Tiered Cake, we credit the $50 fee towards the purchase of a Custom Tiered Cake, but not towards a Short & Sweet or any other dessert order. (The $50 is not a deposit, it is applied towards the balance after the deposit has been received.) Consultations include one take-home box of cake samples, that you order ahead of time with your choice of four signature cakes.

 

SAMPLE BOXES - can be ordered without a consultation for $35. You can choose four different signature cakes (please see our Tiered Cake Flavors page), there are options for egg-free, dairy-free and gluten-free selections. (There is a $3 charge for each gluten-free cake sample.) Samples boxes can be ordered with at least two days' notice, and are paid in advance. Sample box purchases are not credited towards the purchase of any cake order.

"We just want a tiny cake for cutting..."

Single tiers: We also offer a 6" extra-tall cake, which is a perfect single tier size and serves about 10-12. It starts at $40, but may go up depending on the design. These cakes have three layers of filling inside, so they are tall and elegant, just like the top tier of a Custom wedding cake. You can then order side cakes or other desserts to fill in any additional servings if needed.
Please email us with your design ideas or photos, and we would be happy to give you a quote. (jen@sweetlifedesserts.com)

Securing a date

In order to secure a date for a Custom Tiered Cake, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit. Full payment is required 2 weeks prior to the wedding date. (For June - September cakes, we recommend securing the date a few months in advance.)

Short & Sweet cakes should be secured with a 50% non-refundable deposit, with at least one week's notice. Payment is due in full one week before the pickup (or delivery) date. 

Single 6" extra-tall tiers can be paid upon pickup unless otherwise notified.
