How much is a wedding cake?
Wedding cakes are unique to each event and priced according to design; therefore, it is difficult to place a general price on every cake. Distinctive to The Icing, we include separately boxed honeymoon cupcakes and a certificate for a fresh anniversary cake to ensure the enjoyment of your cake on your special day now, and on your first anniversary.
Do you deliver and set-up?
With a custom cakes delivery is always an option; set up is included in the delivery fee.
Are you a licensed bakery?
Yes, we are licensed by the state and inspected by the Health Department. We exceed insurance requirements for most venues. Because we are a full time, storefront bakery we will NOT call you and cancel the week of your event; do not have animals or small children in our kitchens; and are consummate professionals.
I am on a budget. Can I still have The Icing create my wedding cake?
Yes. We offer Kitchen cakes which are the same delicious cake, but not decorated. Your display cake will serve 80 guests; the rest will be served the kitchen cakes. Since kitchen cakes are served at the same time as your centerpiece, your guests will never know the difference! Or you can always select one of our Simple Elegance cakes.
Is there an equipment deposit?
No; all of the supports within your cake and the base are disposable. There is nothing to return to The Icing, nor is it necessary to place a monetary deposit.
Do you freeze your cakes?
No, we custom bake every cake.
Can I choose more than one flavor?
If you choose to let us create a custom or couture wedding cake, you can choose two flavors. Simple Elegance cakes only have one flavor and must be chosen from the list provided.
I have heard that fondant tastes bad. Is that true?
Inexpensive fondant does not taste good. The white chocolate fondant we use is imported for us from France and shipped directly to The Icing.
What happens at a consultation?
You will get to sample yummy cake! We will also discuss design, flavors and cost. If you decide to complete a contract, a $100 deposit is due. Nothing else is finalized (head count, flavors or design) until one month before your wedding.
Sounds great! How do I schedule a consultation?
Give us a call, or send an email. We generally schedule consultations on Saturdays from 10-2; weekdays are available at various times. Consultations are $25.00.
How can I sample more flavors?
Brides who have completed a contract can purchase up to 4 bridal sample cakes (6 inch, undecorated cakes) in the flavors of their choice. We have cupcakes & cakes available daily in the bakery. We also hold open houses periodically through the year.
How do reserve my date?
A contract & deposit are necessary to reserve your date. The $100 non refundable, non transferable deposit is applied toward the final cost of your cake.
What if I am unsure of the details?
You can change anything about your cake– flavors, design and ahead count, up to one month before your wedding. The contract reserves your date. Since The Icing limits how many wedding cakes we create, we do book up fairly quickly.
"We were married on May 28th, 2016 and The Icing did such a fantastic job on my wedding cake! Everything was perfect! It looked amazing and it tasted great! I highly recommend the pink champagne cake! All of our guests raved about our wedding cake and said how it was the best wedding cake they've ever tasted! They delivered the cake and had everything set up perfectly. I also love the fact that they give you a certificate for a free 1 year anniversary cake."

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank-you so much for the beautiful and more importantly, delicious wedding cake that you made for Carrie's wedding. All the guests commented on how absolutely yummy it was and wanted to know who had made it! I'm glad to say that we did have plenty to go around and plenty to share afterwards. Her wedding was perfect and it's thanks to people like you that made it so special for her. Have a wonderful fall and holiday season ahead and I know you will be plenty busy baking your wonderful cakes and treats."
Sincerely, Holly; Stafford, VA
"We chose to have one of their couture cakes created for our wedding, couture cakes allow for their artists to use their own creative ideas to create a cake they believe their clients will love. It was so exciting to see the cake on our wedding day as we entered the reception. It was beautiful! Not only was the cake tall and breathtaking, it was absolutely the most delicious cake I had ever tasted! Thank you to the cake artists at the Icing! Also, they give you a certificate for a small cake for your 1st anniversary! No freezing and eating a year old cake, how sweet of them :)"

"Our wedding cake came out exactly the way we wanted it to look and also tasted delicious! Many of our guests commented on how it was the best wedding cake they'd ever had. The store was also extremely helpful during the whole process. Our wedding happened to fall the weekend of winter storm Jonas so they made arrangements to get it delivered to our venue ahead of time. We cannot thank them enough!"

"My cake was everything I ever wanted for my wedding. I showed a picture of a cake I wanted off of pinterest and The Icing created it and it was way better than the picture. We asked for some creative touches of spiderman poking out of the bottom of the cake as a surprise for my husband and it looked amazing. I am so pleased with Icing. They were professional and created the cake of my dreams. And did I mention it was DELICIOUS !"
