Why should i choose Natalie DeHaven Cakes for my wedding cake?
Our motto is pretty sweet! "Visually Impressive, Unforgettably Delicious!" Our cake studio provides clients with uniquely-delicious flavor combinations and beautifully executed cake designs that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come. Every cake is unique, show stopping and tastes amazing!
All of our cakes are scratch-made and moist with the perfect crumb. We use the highest-quality ingredients; real butter, fresh fruit and pure vanilla bean extract. Oh, and the best part, each cake is layered with Swiss meringue buttercream; silky smooth and not too sweet. You'll enjoy every last bite. We promise!
Where are you located?
All of our cakes are proudly made in a licensed commercial kitchen at the Canyon River Lodge here in Ellensburg, WA. Cake tastings and consultations are held here as well and the setting could not be more perfect. Located on the Yakima River, this upscale riverfront lodge and resort also serves as the backdrop for many beautiful weddings and events. We highly recommend it for your special day!
HOW MUCH WILL MY CAKE COST?
Pricing is determined by the number of guests you wish to serve cake to and the level of detail required to create the design. Sugar flowers are an additional charge depending on the amount and type of flower. Our cakes are priced by the slice. The average cost per serving is $5-$10 a slice. We currently have a minimum order of $350. To give you a better idea of our pricing, a cake serving 75 guests would start at $375 for a simple buttercream design. A more elaborate cake with the same amount of servings could cost upwards of $750 or more; typically for detailed fondant cakes or when lots of sugar flowers are required.
Are the flowers on your cakes real?
No, and we're super proud of that! All of our flowers are hand-made with love and sugar. Sugar flowers are superior to fresh flowers due to their longer shelf life. While flowers eventually wilt, sugar flowers last a lifetime. They can be preserved in a shadow box as a keepsake to remember your special day. Sugar flowers can also be colored to match your fresh flower arrangements, are non-toxic and can be any variety, even out of season. Our sugar flowers are realistic and add a special touch to any cake!
DO YOU OFFER OTHER DESSERTS?
Yes, we do! For couples looking for an alternative to cake, we offer a variety of sweet treats to serve your guests.
DO YOU MAKE HAND-DECORATED SUGAR COOKIES?
We make those too! Every sugar cookie is made with love! Hand piped or painted by hand, individually wrapped and super soft. Our cookies are as delicious as they are beautiful and they make great favors for your guests. Sugar cookies start at $3 each and go up in price depending upon the level of detail required to create the design. The minimum order is $48 for a dozen.
DO YOU DELIVER?
Delivery and set-up of custom cakes and dessert bar starts at $50. For venues more than 50 miles away, the delivery fee is based on mileage roundtrip from our location. Orders requiring extra set-up time may incur an additional fee.
DO YOU HAVE CAKE STANDS FOR RENT?
Yes! We have a number of cake stands in various sizes and finishes. Rental prices are non-refundable and range from $15-$150 depending on the stand. A refundable damage deposit is also required; amounts vary by stand.
CAN I TASTE YOUR CAKE BEFORE I ORDER?
Absolutely! We offer tastings and consultations once a month and last about an hour. At the tasting, you will sample four cake flavors of your choice and discuss design, pricing, servings and flavors for your cake. Tastings are $45 and serve 2-3 people. We also offer consultations only for $25.
Do you offer allergy friendly options?
We do! Gluten-Free and Nut-Free options are available upon request for most of our cake flavors. Currently, we are in testing mode for a few Vegan options as well. Check back for future updates!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK YOU?
We recommend booking your date as soon as possible, 3-6 months before your event date. Dates during prime wedding season months (May - October) book quickly, so don't wait until the last minute to order your cake. If you are concerned about reserving your date, please contact us ahead of time.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
A non-refundable date reservation fee of 50% must be paid at the time of booking for all orders. The remainder is due three weeks prior to the event.
