Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How Does Your Pricing Work?2021-03-07T20:42:15+00:00

For a decorated cake, the price usually starts at $8 per serving (subject to change), ask us for other options if you’re on a budget. Please contact us for dessert pricing, as it varies more greatly by the specific item.

I’m On a Budget, Can You Do Anything For Me?2021-03-07T20:35:58+00:00

Our prices reflect the amount we need to charge in order to stay in business. We are happy to work with you on methods to reduce the cost. You may want to consider a smaller cake for display and adding cupcakes or sheet cake to reduce costs. Using textured buttercream, “nearly naked,” or a rustic style of frosting may also help to reduce the price. Remember, we use the best ingredients and bake from scratch, meaning we’re not able to charge as little as other bakeries who use mixes, canned and jarred fillings, or shortening in their frosting.

Do You Charge A Different Price For Buttercream or Fondant?2020-10-01T17:54:03+00:00

We do usually charge a little more for fondant because of the additional time and ingredients.

What Is Your Minimum Order?2021-03-07T20:31:15+00:00

Our minimum order has been reduced to $200 for weddings, $150 for other orders, while restrictions are in place for the coronavirus. Lower priced desserts and small cakes can be found at JennyWennyTreats. Prices subject to change.

Do You Charge For Delivery?2021-03-07T20:27:38+00:00

Yes, our delivery charge starts at $30 for small cakes locally, and goes up from there. We charge a delivery, setup, and stand rental fee for cupcakes/desserts if you’d like a cupcake tower or to use our stands for displaying desserts. We are happy for you to pick up from our bakery in Carmel Mountain Ranch at a mutually convenient time, but we don’t recommend self-transport or self-setup for cakes bigger than 2 tiers.

How Far Ahead Do I Need To Book?2021-03-07T20:23:45+00:00

We generally recommend getting in touch at least 2-3 weeks before your event.  For weddings and larger events requiring delivery, we would recommend getting in touch at least 1-3 months ahead. Your date isn’t considered reserved until we receive your deposit/payment. To secure your date you will need to either give a 33-50% deposit if your order is over $200 (subject to change) or the full amount for smaller orders. You must be paid in full at least 7 days before your event.

How Do You Take Payment?2021-03-07T20:20:07+00:00

We are happy to take a credit card, with an invoice that you can click through and pay online. Most of our orders are booked through Honeybook.  We also take cash and checks, but we do need the check a minimum of 3 weeks before your event. Visit our JennyWennyTreats website to check out our weekly offerings!

Do You Make ‘Dummy’ Cakes/Tiers?2020-10-01T17:58:27+00:00

We are happy to make your cake more grand by adding fake tiers (made from styrofoam instead of cake), or a fake cake with just one real tier for cutting. We charge about half the price of a real cake, so if you are serving a fake cake plus sheet cakes it will still be more expensive than real cake. This is a great option for very hot weather.  We only offer this option for fondant designs.

Do You Make Sheet Cakes?2021-03-07T21:09:37+00:00

Yes, we only charge $5 per serving (in multiples of 25 servings) of undecorated frosted sheet cake; we do up to half sheet cakes to serve 50 for $250. If you are having a big wedding or event, this may be a way to cut costs a little. Pricing subject to change.

Can We Buy A Small Cake From You And Then Serve Sheetcakes/Cupcakes From The Grocery Store?2021-03-07T20:15:27+00:00

Our policy is that we don’t allow that.  We work very hard to create delicious cakes, and we’d prefer you place your full order with us. We do understand if you have specialty desserts such as donuts, churros, or ice cream, we are happy for our desserts to be served alongside them, but we don’t set up other bakeries’ desserts.

Do You Have A Storefront?2021-03-07T20:13:37+00:00

No, we have a bakery in Carmel Mountain Ranch. We offer Tastings & Consultations by appointment only. All our items are baked to order. For last-minute needs, check out our JennyWennyTreats page.

How Do Tasting & Consultation Appointments Work?2021-03-07T21:08:07+00:00

We are happy to accommodate up to 4 people. We’ll give you an in-person Deluxe ($50, with an additional $10 to include desserts) mix-and-match tasting of most of the cake flavors along with a large assortment of fillings and frostings. The fee will be put towards the cost of your cake when you book with us, provided the cake is $400 or more. Sit-down Tasting & Consultation appointments are generally only held on Saturdays between 10-3pm.  Alternatively, we are happy to make up a Standard or Deluxe sample pack ($25 or $40, respectively, with an additional $15 to include desserts) for you to take away and taste at your leisure Thursday – Saturday 10-2pm, that will count towards the cost of an order of $400 or more. DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC all tastings and consultations are only offered by curbside pickup on Friday and Saturday from 10-2pm, including curbside full consultations from the comfort of your own car. Pricing subject to change.

Are Children Allowed At The Bakery?2021-03-07T19:53:40+00:00

While supervised children are welcomed and allowed at the bakery, it is not the most kid-friendly environment, so we suggest if you’re coming for a consult and you have the option to have someone take care of them, that would be your best bet. If this is not an option, we understand that and will do our best to make your consult short and sweet and fun!

What Are Your Opening Hours?2021-03-07T19:51:43+00:00

We are generally at the bakery Tues-Fri 8-3.45 pm and Saturdays 10-2 pm, we are closed on Sundays and Mondays. If we have arranged for you to pick up your cake at a certain time, and we have already closed, we do have a $25 per 15-minute fee for late pickups to cover paying our staff for the additional time and inconvenience.

Do You Make Wedding Cakes For Same-Sex Couples?2020-10-01T18:08:56+00:00

Of course we do!

Do You Offer Any Discounts?2021-03-07T19:48:44+00:00

Yes, we do offer a discount for active military, nurses, and for public school teachers.
