Weddings - Frequenty Asked Questions

When is the best time to order my wedding dessert?

The sooner the better! As soon as you have a date and a reception location established, you may schedule a tasting with our wedding coordinator. We will accept wedding orders anywhere from 2-12 months in advance. *We may be able to accommodate shorter time frames, please call the bakery directly for availability.

We recommend setting up a time to taste 6-9 months in advance of your event. All of our tasting packages are available for purchase online at shop.dorothyannbakery.com or call us directly at 651-731-3323. Custom sampling is also available; however seasonal flavor availability may vary.

Complete payment is required at least 2 weeks prior to your wedding date along with your final guest count and any other changes to your order.

We are happy to alternate the cake flavors and filings in your cake for no additional fee. Sheet cakes are a great way to offer a variety of cake flavors for your guests.

We base our servings on slices that are 4" high x 2" deep x 1" width. However, each reception site may cut the cake slightly different and may be a question for you to ask them.

It's very common to do a 2 or 3 tiered wedding cake and then have extra servings in the kitchen for the rest of the guests. These are made just like a tier of the wedding cake (2 or 3 layers of cake and 1 or 2 layers of filling) so that when they are served, every guests has a uniform serving of cake. The sheet cakes are undecorated cakes just for the purposes of serving and provide a significant cost savings.

We would prefer that all cake toppers are left at the reception site. Please let us know ahead of time if you will be having a cake topper so our delivery staff can be aware of the placement in relation to other cake design details.

All fresh flowers for your cake are provided by your florist, and WE CAN arrange them on site. It is your responsibility to discuss with the Dorothy Ann Bakery wedding team on how you would like the florals arranged, and we will do our best to bring your vision to life. Please request your florist leave available flowers on the cake table.

We offer a limited selection of gum paste flowers. The gumpaste flowers provided by Dorothy Ann Bakery may contain wire and are therefore considered inedible. It is your responsibility to communicate this information to your caterer and guests who may be served this product.

We offer a limited selection of ribbon colors for cakes. We use a “non-grease” ribbon to ensure no moisture is absorbed from the icing. If you provide your own ribbon, please keep in mind fabric ribbons will absorb moisture and may discolor the ribbon or may have a splotchy appearance.

We have a full selection of stands, pedestals, towers, donut walls, and serving trays for wedding presentations for individual items such as cupcakes, donuts, fancy individual desserts, cookies, etc. These can be rented for a fee and will be quoted during your consultation. Additionally, stand rentals require a refundable deposit. This refundable deposit will be returned to you once the stands/pedestals/etc are returned to the bakery in good condition and all parts returned. Please note that damaged or missing pieces may result in a partial or no deposit returned.

Yes! We offer our delivery service for a fee based off distance, date, and quantity of dessert. This fee will be quoted during your consultation.

Yes of course! No additional fees apply. Please note, you will take full responsibility for the cake and desserts from the moment is leaves the bakery.

A 1-4 hour window of time is agreed upon during your wedding consultation. This allows our delivery staff to properly have enough time to arrive, set up, arrange flowers, clean up, discuss with catering staff where additional boxes/notes are left before your guests arrive. Additional details regarding delivery will be discussed in your consultation.

Changes and modifications to your order are allowed up until 2 weeks. Please work directly with our wedding consultants for all changes and modifications.

For cancellations within 1 week from the event date, no refund shall be given. On cancellations that fall within the accepted timeline, you will receive a FULL refund (minus the cancellation convenience fee of 5%).

Price is guaranteed at the time of booking.

After the Wedding - Frequently Asked  Questions

What should I do with my top tier after the wedding?

We supply a box for you to transport the top tier home after the wedding. As soon as possible, wrap the box with plastic wrap and freeze. With proper packaging, the cake should retain its flavor and serve as the perfect dessert for your first anniversary dinner!

We appreciate the return of these items within 3-5 days following the wedding date. Your refundable deposit check will be returned to you after the stands are inspected.
