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 join us for a "Sample Saturdays" and taste a sample of our cakes. Please read all the information about our Sample Saturdays.
B.) After submitting your contract and deposit, you can request a complimentary cake sample. If you choose this option, we require all information be submitted, including the deposit, to insure that the wedding party is completely serious about booking our company for their cakes. If we did not require the deposit to be paid, we would be giving out cake all day long 7 days a week. Also, in the DFW wedding market these prices are very very RARE, especially for the quality. For the quality in design and taste, these prices can not be matched. Keep in mind, that the deposit is only $100 for each package and IF FOR SOME REASON YOU DON'T LIKE THE CAKE SAMPLES, THE DEPOSIT IS 100% REFUNDED. We have NEVER had anyone not choose our packages because of taste. We win awards annually for our flavor and designs.
1. 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.
2. Do we have to get a groom's cake in the package?
No. You can use the servings in on the grooms cake for the brides cake........meaning if you pick a package for 100, you can use 60 or so servings that would have been in the groom's cake and add it to the bridal cake.
3. I don't know my exact guest count yet. If I purchase a package, can I change 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!
4. 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.
5. Do I get to come in for a consultation?
No, Sorry. Everything for the Sweet Inspiratons Cake Packages is done online or Sample Saturdays every Saturday at the Big Stone Gap Rd location in Duncanville PLEASE KEEP IN MIND. IF FOR SOME REASON YOU BOOK A SITDOWN CONSULTATION (Custom Cakes), THE CAKE PACKAGE PRICES ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
6. 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.
7. 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. 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. And... most importantly... if you come to Sample Saturday and book your wedding cakes THAT DAY, while at the Sample Saturday session you receive FREE DELIVERY!!! Up to a $75 value!
8. Do I have a choice of flavors?
Yes. We offer these delicious flavors:
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

9. But if there is not consultation, how do we taste cakes?
Very simple. Come to a Sample Saturday, OR once you have submitted your contract online, we will call you, or you can call or email and pick a date to come in and pick up your personal cake samples!
10. We are picking up our cake and traveling all the way to (really far destination). Will they be safe?
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!
11. 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!
12. 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!
13. What is the deposit?
All deposits for the Sweet Inspirations Cake Packages are ONLY $100 and if you don't like the taste of the cake it is completely refundable with in 3 days of picking up samples.
14. 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!
15. I have a contract that has a cheaper price than is on the website or a coupon from online….Will you honor the less expensive price or coupon?
Of course! Just please save the contract, fill it out and send it in with the deposit...and we always honor any printed material from specials, shows and website updates. If you have a coupon, you can use one coupon or one discount only. Offers can not be combined.
