Wedding & Celebrations FAQ

TASTINGS:

Tastings can be scheduled for customers interested in wedding cakes or any other custom cake occasions. We schedule them Tuesdays-Saturdays, and they last approximately 1 hour. During this time, you will meet with the RareSweets Cake Designer and go over all of the seasonal and sweet options available for your big day. Love your grandmother’s spice cake recipe? We are also happy to discuss any flavors or combinations that you would be interested in us incorporating into your cake. At this time, we will also go over all design ideas and show you some ideas we truly love.
If cake is not enough, there’s always room for more dessert! From S’mores to cookies, to seasonal fruit strudels, our dessert tables are the perfect addition to any celebration. Need a signature take-home gift for your guests? Our custom designed shortbread cookies, hot cocoa, or granola are the perfect take away from your perfect celebration.
