Wedding FAQ’s

What can I expect to pay for a wedding cake?

Our wedding cakes start at $5.00 per serving for round, $6.00 per serving for square.
Additional expenses are incurred for sugar flowers, sugar work, chocolate work or
if we need to purchase any additional pieces for your cake.

How far in advance do I need to order a wedding cake?

We limit the number of cakes we take in a weekend to three, so the earlier you reserve
your date with us the better. Typically, busier wedding months
(May through October) book four to six months in advance. For
other times of the year, a couple of months notice will usually
suffice. If you have your heart set on a cake from Bella’s Desserts,
book it as early as possible no matter what time of year. We turn
away more cakes than we produce each year, so don’t risk it, give
us a call as soon as you know the date of your event!

Do you bake allergen free cakes?

We make delicious dairy free, egg free, nut free, soy free, vegan or wheat free cakes.
We do everything we possibly can to prevent cross contamination, however,
we do not have a dedicated kitchen, and there is no guarantee that you
or your guest will not have a reaction. If you or your guest has a
severe allergy, in that you cannot be in the vicinity of the allergen,
we suggest you find a dedicated bakery for your needs.

May I taste your cakes before reserving the date with you?

Absolutely!  Our tastings are $25, and include a trio of cakes to sample, vanilla,
chocolate and bakers choice. When you and your fiancée, or guest come for your
Wedding Cake Consultation, we will present you with 3 of our cake flavors in
cupcake form  and buttercreams/fillings to sample.  We request that no more
than 2 other people come with you for consultations, as we have found, the
more people involved,the less cake work gets done! Payment is due at time of
scheduling, and is non-refundable if tasting is canceled, but can be put towards
one rescheduled appointment if appointment is canceled at least 48 hours prior
to our meeting. The tasting fee is put towards your order, should you decide to
contract us to provide your cake.

How long are consultations, and must I bring anything with me?

Wedding cake consultations generally run between 30 minutes to 1 hour.
We ask that you arrive on time to ensure that you are allotted your full hour.
Before you arrive, we ask that you have a budget for what you would like to
spend on your cake.  This will give us a better sense of what we can do for you.
We recommend you bring with you any ideas you may have for your cake, flowers,
dresses, table decorations, etc.  Any design direction, no matter how limited,
is most helpful in giving us an idea of your dream cake!   If you should need
to reschedule, or cancel, we ask that you contact us no later than 48 hours in
advance, due to us having to prepare your tasting the day of.

Do I have to make a deposit to reserve my wedding date?
If so, how much is it and can I get a refund, if necessary?

Yes, you will need to pay a 50% retainer to reserve your wedding date.
Without the retainer, we will not hold your date.  Priority will be given to the
paying customer.  We ask that you be absolutely certain that you would like to
work with us, as all retainers are non-refundable.  We accept cash, debit,
Mastercard, Visa and Discover. The full balance must be paid no later than 1 month
prior to your event, and is non-refundable within the month before your event.
If your balance is not paid within that time frame, the cake may be cancelled.

Do you deliver your cakes?

We can deliver cakes throughout Southeast Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey,
Northern Delaware, and Northern Maryland for a fee.  $50.00 within 10 miles,
call for other locations.

Do you ship wedding cakes?

Sorry, we do not ship cakes, but we do ship wedding favor cookies,
as well as some of our other desserts.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes we do!
