turning inspiration into beautiful cakes

info

The Process

1| inquiry

After submitting the cake questionnaire I will contact you about availability. We will discuss the overall vision for your event cake, your budget, additional dessert options, and flavors you are interested in.


2| tasting

Tastings are by appointment and are typically held in my home office in Brentwood, CA. The tasting fee is $50, which is redeemable towards your balance should you book with Etta Avenue Cakes. Before your tasting a preliminary menu will be sent to you for approval. This ensures that the flavors tasted are uniquely yours. During your tasting we will further discuss your cake and dessert details and answer any questions you may have.


3| design

A proposal will be sent to you along with three sketches and accompanying quotes. Once a design is selected and approved a 50% non-refundable deposit must be placed to reserve your event date. There is an allowance of up to two design revisions included after placing the initial deposit. I will ask for final confirmation of details regarding delivery times, dessert table layouts, etc. one month prior to your event from you or your event planner. The remaining payment will be due in full two weeks prior to your event date.

 

 

Flavors


tastings

Every cake is designed uniquely for each client and the flavors should reflect that as well. I do not have a set menu! After reviewing your questionnaire I will create a custom menu for you to choose from. Flavors will reflect seasonality of produce as well as your own personal tastes.  To get a sense of what my personal tastes you will find my suggested seasonal tasting menu below.
