2. One of the most frequently asked questions is HOW DO WE TASTE CAKES? There are 2 options to taste cakes
A.) You are welcome to register to join us for "Sample Saturdays" and taste and sample our cakes.
B.) IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT AND YOU DO NOT WANT TO COME TO SAMPLE SATURDAYS OR YOU ARE JUST BUSY AND WANT US TO TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING.... Submit your contract and $100 and you are all set! You can pick up samples at a time when it is convenient! That's it...all set....all done!!!
3. Can we choose any package cake?
Yes. You may choose any of the 16 Bridal Cakes and 8 Groom's cakes. The Sweet Insiprations Packages are set cake designs that offer great designs and taste at really great prices.
4. Do we have to get a groom's cake in the package?
No. You can use the servings in the grooms cake for the brides cake........meaning if you pick a package for 100, we will move all of the groom's cake servings into the bride's cakes! Simple...anything to make you happy!!!
5. I don't know my exact guest count yet. If I purchase a package, can I change the size or cakes later?
YES.... the exact contract does not matter, JUST PLEASE SECURE YOUR DATE ASAP! For instance..if you choose a package for 125, but at the 14 day point you need less cake...all you have to do is let us know and we reduce the contract. There is no penalty to change your contract. The main thing is to reserve your date! Please keep in mind, from time to time we have price changes. Once we change a pricing structure, the
previous rates are no longer available. So reserve your cakes today!!!
6. What does the groom's cake look like?
Each Groom's cake can have something added to make the cake more personal. We suggest Frat Logos, School Logos, Family Crests, Sports, Teams Logos, Monograms or Pictures. All additions to the groom's cake will be finalized after the contract has been returned with the deposit.
7. Do I get to come in for a private consultation?
Yes...Most Definitely!!! Sign up for a Sample Saturday consultation and we will help you with all the details and of course you get to taste our award winning cakes!!!
8. Can we add something to the groom's cake ourselves?
Yes. For instance, if you plan to add a Dallas Cowboys Helmet to the top, just tell us and we will make sure we prepare the cake accordingly. Perhaps there are other ideas you plan to use, that is not a problem. As long as you provide the items there is not a problem. We can also add a logo or scan if you would like something personal on the cake.
9. Do you deliver?
Yes. These cakes can be picked up or delivered. If you are picking up don't worry!!! It is very easy to pick up. We chill the cakes to 34 degrees and they are very very transportable. Just make sure you have a SUV, van or large compartment vehicle with AIR CONDITIONING and you will be just fine. We will provide pick up/delivery tips in your contract. But just know....it is very very easy and should not be a problem. If you request delivery, the delivery fee for the package is generally $75-$100. To many, that is worth paying. For us, we hire two additional delivery guys for our packages plus we deliver in a refrigerated van for safety. PLEASE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR MONEY SAVING COUPONS!
10. Do I have a choice of flavors?
Yes. Of course! We offer these delicious flavors during the cake tasting:
White with Buttercream-Cream Cheese
White with Amaretto Creme
White with Keylime Cream Cheese
White with Tres Leches
White with Raspberry Fruit
White with Strawberry Creme
Chocolate with Chocolate Icing
Chocolate with Fudge Ganache
Chocolate with Raspberry Fruit
11. We are picking up our cake and traveling all the way to (really far destination). Will they be safe?
Since you have decided to pick up your cakes instead of having them delivered, Yes, definitely. If you follow the guidelines that we offer in the contract you will be just fine! The cakes are chilled, PLUS, each cake has at least one fake cake and that stablizes the entire stack! It is very very easy! Just drive safe! For pickups in which the cake will go outside of DFW…We also have RENTAL BOXES that keep the cake SAFE!
12. If I'm picking up my cake, what will the cakes come packaged in?
Wedding cakes cannot be boxed. Each cake needs to sit on a non slick surface that we will provide…And it needs to sit in the back of a vehicle. Our cakes travel very nicely since they are chilled. Remember they come stacked and ready to go!
13. I want to have ribbon on my cake. Can I use my own colors?
Yes of course! In fact, we prefer you to supply your ribbon so that we get the ribbon color 100% correct! We will go over all the information during your Sample Saturday session!
14. What is the deposit?
All deposits for the Sweet Inspirations Cake Packages are ONLY $100! How affordable is that!!
15. When is the balance due?
14 days before the wedding. At that time all changes in contract are due and finalized. Remember you can change your contract up till about 14 days before......that way you can get your RSVP's back and make better number choices!
16. Can there be different flavors on each tier of the cakes?
Yes, of course! Flavors are not extra charges!
17. If we choose to pick up our cakes instead of delivery, when do we pick it up?
That is completely up to you! We will be in contact to schedule a pick up time once full payment is made.
18. How do I know which package to choose?
Decide how many guests you will be having, then choose the appropriate contract. For instance, if you are having 152 guests, you can either choose the 150 guest package or the 125 guest package. It just depends on the amount of cake you are comfortable with.
19. What kind of icing is used? Do you use fondant?
We use our delicious buttercream/cream cheese icing. Cakes in the packages do not include fondant.

25. How can cakes for 75 guests and cakes for 175 guests be the same?

32. How does the "CASH OPTION" offer work and why do you offer it?
For years we have paid thousands in credit card fees, surcharges, penalties for "points"...etc. For example...Most people do not realize this, but when a customer uses a "Miles" Visa or a Rewards Visa Card, the merchant (Us, THE CAKE GUYS) have to pay for those rewards. Credit cards are are a great convenience for customers, however CASH has made America what it is today! The American Dollar is as strong as ever at THE CAKE GUYS! Use our COUPONS to make those $$$ go further! 33. Do you make any cakes other than wedding cakes? I am sorry no we do not.

34. Do you make cupcakes for special orders? I am sorry no we do not.
35. Do you do large events, showers and party cakes if they are over the $750 minimum? In most cases we do not, but you can always ask.
