Frequently Asked Questions

don't know where to start?
Then you've come to the right place!

my studio (a licensed, separate kitchen space attached to my home) is located in manheim, pa. i am not open to the public. Custom occasion and wedding cakes are available for delivery or appointment-only pickup. 

where can i find your cake studio?

do you have a retainer fee/minimum spend amount?

Yes! The deposit amount to solidify your date on the FS calendar is $250, and is non-refundable. The minimum order amount for a Flouretta Sweet wedding is $700. This can be a combination of cake and/or desserts, and can also include any rentals, delivery fee, etc. 

delivery and setup are combined and charged at $1.50/ mile round trip from the flouretta sweet studio (in Manheim, PA) to your wedding venue. This covers my travel time, and ensures that your cake gets there (and stays there!) in one piece :) 

what do you charge for delivery & setup?

a consultation is where you meet with me and taste some cake, discuss your vision, and together we dream up the perfect cake and/or dessert display to complement the story of your day! We discuss official pricing, design, and all of the wedding-day details at this meeting, and end with a clear vision of what will be created for your event! As much as I wish that I could meet with every potential client, in reality it’s JUST me working with you from start to finish. At this time, due to my availability, I reserve this experience only for my clients who have paid their booking fee.

what is a cake consultation
and when do we meet for one?

Absolutely! Having cake that looks AND tastes good is so important to me. I want my clients to be reassured in every way possible that I'm the right fit before they book. That is why I’ve created my Cake Sampler Box! This gives you the chance to “try before you buy”, so that you’re super familiar with my cake and how it tastes (and so you’ve seen multiple flavors in action). This box is a pre-set selection of 5 flavors that reflect the season in which you’re getting married. It is $25 and available for pickup at my home-based kitchen space in Manheim, PA. Once you inquire, I’ll include a link to order a sample box if you’d like to try some cake!

Is there a way I can try your cake before I book
(just so I know you're the right fit?)

First of all, DON’T WORRY! pricing cake and desserts might seem confusing, overwhelming, and complicated, but I’m here to make it UN-complicated! I will guide you to design a cake and find a combination of sweets that fits your unique wedding style. I’ll even do the math for you, and make sure that you’ll have enough to feed your guest count and satisfy Mom AND your partner who only likes vanilla. I promise! I am CONFIDENT that I can find something that will work within your wedding budget, and make you and your guests happy. This process should be FUN, and I’m here to make it just that! 

how do I know how much to order
or even where to start?

Yes, absolutely! I currently offer gluten free, dairy free, and vegan wedding cake flavors, as well as an entire menu’s worth of miniature desserts that can accommodate the same allergies. If you have another specific allergy, let me know and I’ll see what I can do to accommodate it! Please keep in mind that my kitchen is NOT free of wheat, eggs, or dairy, HOWEVER, when I produce any items for client’s with allergies, extreme care is taken to prevent cross-contamination. It’s up to you to know the level of your allergy, and I will be sure to discuss the needs of you and your guests thoroughly as we work together to design a wedding day menu that can accommodate everyone!

do you offer allergen-friendly options?

Yesss! Flouretta Sweet offers a WIDE variety of rental items to jazz up your dessert display. The price of rentals is calculated based on the number of people being fed with the miniature desserts that you’ve ordered, and includes setup, cake stands, fabric, and other decorative pieces specific to your wedding day feel- each setup is unique! Rentals are delivered and set up by me, and then the couple is responsible for returning them post-wedding. I am also happy to set up rental items and stands provided by you, but a $50 set-up fee will be added to the final total to cover my time.  

do you offer cake stand/platter rentals for my wedding dessert display?

It depends. No matter what, I require that if you work with me, ALL of your cake needs (this means your wedding cake, supplementary cakes, and cupcakes) MUST come through flouretta sweet only. This is not me trying to be greedy! This is mainly because of liability concern and reputational protection on my part.
 HOWEVER, if you would like to get specialty desserts through another vendor ( ice cream, s’mores, specialty cookies or favors, cookie tables, etc.), that is totally fine, I just ask that they be displayed separately from the cake/desserts I am providing.

I'm getting desserts through my caterer/another vendor/a food truck but still want book you for some things. is that ok?
