Wedding Cake Tastings

How much are wedding cake tastings, and what do they entail?

Our wedding cake tastings are $25.00 and they include a variety of cake and frosting/filling combinations to sample. The fee for your tasting is due at the time that it is booked. Should you decide to reserve your event date with us, this fee will be deducted from the total cost of your order (this applies to cake orders of 100 servings or more). During the consultation we will discuss the design of your cake, so please bring any pictures, fabric swatches, or any other items you think will help convey the feel of your special day. 

 

The cake tasting typically lasts for approximately 45 minutes, so we ask that you arrive on time to ensure that you are allotted your full time. 


Should you need to reschedule or cancel, we ask that you do so via your appointment confirmation email 24-48 hours in advance of your appointment time. Refunds will not be issued for appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice due to the bake prep needed for the appointment.

Order & Payment Information

Order inquiries are accepted by phone at (205) 565-8667 via email, and online through our Cakes by Kim Contact Form. So that each individual order can receive the love and care that it needs, we accept a limited number of orders each week. Because wedding cakes are typically booked pretty far in advance, it is best to contact us early in your planning process to ensure that we have your date available. The majority of our weddings are booked 6 months to 1 year in advance, others are booked within a 3 to 5 month time frame prior to the wedding date. Please note that the longer you wait to place your order, the greater the likelihood that your date will be unavailable.


Cakes by Kim is pleased to announce that we now accept payments through the Square Cash App and PayPal for your convenience! We will also continue to accept payments via cash, check and money order. Most wedding orders are divided between 2-4 equal payments depending on the balance due and the amount of time before your event date. A non-refundable retainer is required to place your order, and the final payment is due in full one month prior to your event date to complete your order. Please note that your order will not be fulfilled if your final payment has not been received.
