For wedding and special event cakes the most difficult question to answer is "how much will this cost?" Cake prices vary according to the size and design of the cake. For weddings and special event cakes, such as groom's cake or anniversary cakes, pricing is based on flavor, filling and icing choices. For buttercream frosted cakes , prices start at $4 per serving; cupcakes start at $2.65; Fondant-covered cakes begin at $5 per serving. CrazyCakeChicks never charges for set up. Wedding cake deliveries are free on Oak Island and other locales are charged according to the following fee schedule:

Bald Head Island                           $225   Holden Beach/Shallotte                                   $50
Southport/St. James Plantation           $ 25   Sunset Harbor                                                $45
Wilmington                                     $115   Winding River                                                 $45
Ocean Isle Beach                            $ 75      

We offer tastings and consultations to prospective brides and grooms by appointment. There is a fee of $20 for the bride and groom and $5 for each additional guest. The tasting fee is later deducted from the cost of your cake if you book with us.

A wedding cake serving is typically sized at 1” x 2”x 4”. The number of servings any particular cake design provides may not exactly match the number of guests you need to serve. We will work with you to get as close as possible to the number of guests you expect. Please note that the smallest two-tiered cake we can make will provide 36 servings.

Traditionally, the top tier of a wedding cake is not included in the number of servings you order. and is frozen and saved for your first anniversary.  At CrazyCakeChicks we will honor this tradition or we will provide a complimentary six-inch cake as our anniversary gift to you.*  If you don't think you'll return to Oak Island for your anniversary celebration, you may choose a 6" honeymoon cake--a small cake for the newly married to enjoy privately. You may then include the top tier in the number of servings you order and serve this tier to your wedding party or honored guests. If the design you choose is not sufficient to serve your guests, supplemental sheet cakes can be made.


We require a 25% retainer to reserve your date which becomes non-refundable 60 days prior to your wedding date. The final payment for your cake is due no later than 30 days prior to your event date or must be paid in cash or by credit card.

Because our equipment is quite expensive, we require a deposit for cake stands, etc. that may be returned damaged or may not be returned at all. This deposit is fully refunded when the equipment is returned in good condition. Unless advance arrangements are made all equipment is due back within 5 days or a late fee of $5 per day may be charged and return of the equipment will still be required. If CrazyCakeChicks must retrieve any equipment a second delivery fee will be charged.

A word about outdoor events -- Any cake that is placed outside runs the risk of melting or becoming unstable. In addition North Carolina hosts a wide variety of insects that love icing and, unfortunately stick to it. CrazyCakeChicks strongly recommends that cakes be placed indoors to prevent damage. We are not liable for deformities resulting from heat once the cake has been delivered if placed in an unsuitable location.

Fresh Flowers are beautiful. Some, however, are poisonous to humans. These include many varieties of lilies. Many have been treated with insecticides or sprayed with substances to retain freshness. These are substances you may not wish to have touching your wedding cake. You may wish to consider gum paste flowers or silk flowers to avoid contamination.

CrazyCakeChicks reserves the right not to provide a wedding cake or grooms cake when other desserts have been provided by another vendor without our permission. We provide delicious and beautiful cakes and it would be unfair for your guests to assume that another vendors dessert was ours. If you are planning to have additional desserts at your wedding please let us know in advance. We may remove our cake if from the venue if another cake as described is present.

 

*Your anniversary cake will not include recreation of any custom cake toppers or flowers.
