From-scratch custom wedding cakes for every couple!
Storybook Bakery will be CLOSED to all orders the entire month of January 2020 for our annual vacation time. Due to an upcoming deployment, we are unable to hold wedding consultations until this spring. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for your patience during this time.
The cake is a focal point of your reception and something all of your guests will be eager to sample. In fact, the cake is often the last thing your guests will partake in before they leave your wedding. So you want to send them off with the best memories of your special day. What better way to end the evening than with a slice of tasty wedding cake!
Whether you are planning an elegant affair or a fun themed event, we're the one-stop shop for wedding cakes, groom's cakes, reception desserts, & wedding cookies.

What is our process?
For weddings with UNDER 100 guests, just fill out the form at the bottom of this page and your order will be handled via email. Due to our full schedule, we do not hold consultations for smaller cakes. You will still receive a honeymoon cake and free local delivery, if your cake is at least 50 servings.
For weddings with OVER 100 guests, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page and we will contact you to schedule a wedding consultation for you and up to 2 additional guests (3 people total). Weekday and weekend appointments are available.
You will have the option to add a tasting to your consultation for $25. Samples will be made fresh for your appointment, however, flavor choice depends on what we are baking that week. Please notify us of allergies and we will try to accommodate.
At your consultation, we will discuss your dream cake and go over the wedding contract so we can address any questions or concerns in person. You will receive a cake quote to take with you to discuss at home. There is no pressure to book the cake at your consultation. Quotes are valid for 2 weeks after appointment, however, spots are first-reserved/first-served.

*NOTE: We are NOT a gluten-free facility. And while we take care to create gluten-free items in the same way we make some nut-free treats, we do have gluten-containing ingredients and items on the premises. We do not recommend ordering our gluten-free cake if you are highly sensitive to gluten as traces of gluten are always a possibility.
What will it cost?
There is a $50 Supplies Deposit with every tiered cake, for our heavy duty cake boards, which is refundable if cake board is returned within 5 days of event.
The following are examples of cake sizes/designs and proposed cost. Your price per serving would depend on the design you've chosen and number of servings. These are just examples to give you an idea of pricing for some types of designs. Serving counts include top tier. To save top tier, you would deduct 12 servings from total count (price would remain the same).

Quick tips for planning your cake!
- We recommend buying enough cake for at least 80% of your guest count.
- If you know your guests have a big sweet tooth, order extra servings.
- Buttercream melts! Plan to display cake indoors, when possible.
- For outdoor receptions in warm/summer weather, a shaded area is required. You do NOT want to see what happens to a cake when it sits in the hot sun. *shudder*
- Planning to have a family member cut the cake? All cakes will include a step-by-step cutting guide to help you get the required number of servings. It even has pictures!
- Want to use a topper? We will arrange it for free, as long as it is on the cake table when we arrive and it is listed on the order form.
- What kind of flowers can be used on the cake? All kinds! We've placed silk, fresh, and sugar flowers on cakes of all sizes. Just be sure to arrange with your florist to leave the flowers on/by the cake table on event day.
