Delivery & Order Policy

Delivery is only available for weddings. We take exceptional care in transporting, delivering and setting up your desserts. All wedding deliveries are charged a delivery fee based on the county in which the venue is located, plus round-trip mileage to/from the bakery. Special charges will apply for all deliveries to Mackinac Island. Delivery is not available on Sundays or holidays.

Please note that our custom cakes are very popular and space is extremely limited during peak season (June-Sept). During peak season, custom cakes must be ordered a minimum of ten (10) business days in advance, and even then, we cannot guarantee availability. Some dates for the 2024 season are already fully booked.  Last minute requests may be accommodated based on availability but are not guaranteed.  We cannot accommodate custom cakes or wedding consultations during the week of the National Cherry Festival/Fourth of July.
