$20-$35: Tastings & Consultations: BY APPOINTMENT ONLY! Click here for tasting information and pricing.
$45 Design Deposit (Starting March 1st 2019): If a custom hand-drawn design is deemed necessary by the designer (more involved and elaborate cake designs), or requested by the client, Sweet Fix will require this $45 deposit. This deposit is required following your consultation (in addition to your tasting fee, if applicable) and/or prior to your completed design & contract proposal (emailed as a digital invoice). Your custom design and contract proposal will not be released until this $45 deposit has been made. This fee covers the research and planning time necessary to create a unique, custom cake design for your special event as well as the hand-drawn, full color illustration that will accompany your contract proposal. Sweet Fix allows up to 1 complimentary hand-drawn revision to the original design. For additional revisions after this point, a fee of $45 is required, per revision. This fee will not be deducted from your contract proposal nor takes the place of the 50% deposit and signed contract required to lock in your event date/order. If you choose not to move forward with Sweet Fix this fee is non-refundable. Note: Not all cakes require a custom design. The design concepts, textural elements, floral arrangements and simple accents for most basic buttercream wedding cakes, classic styles and thematic party cakes can be discussed at the tasting with a quick sketching done during that time to ensure that you and the owner are on the same page. This fee only applies to custom hand-drawn sketches drafted post-consultation. Feel free to bring inspiration images of event decor, invitations, florals, other cake designs, color swatches, etc to ensure proper creative communications and to streamline the design process.

About our Servings: All of our dessert recipes (including our gluten-free products) have been developed over the years by Sweet Fix and are made from-scratch, fresh to order. Each of our cake tiers is made up of 4 tiered layers of cake with 3 layers of our Italian meringue buttercream with the option for additional top quality, all-natural fillings. Our extensive list of flavors and fillings can be found here.
Our cake serving sizes tend to be larger than traditional wedding serving sizes due to our layering and tier height. This base total estimates your cost-per-serving BEFORE custom design fees, equipment fees /rentals (if applicable) as well as delivery and taxes.
We strongly suggest narrowing your final cake flavors down to 2 options for guests. Any more than two flavors in a cake will make it incredibly hard on your catering company when it comes time to plate, present and serve to attendees. Sweet Fix reserves the right to charge an extra flavor fee, at our discretion.
