Special Events and Delivery
Creating the perfect cake is something we love, but we offer so much more! Whether it is decorated sugar cookies, brownies, pies or a special cake, we have a variety of dessert options that will look beautiful on your table. Call us to set up a consultation- here's more about ordering and delivery for your special event.
We offer free delivery for orders over $250. All other orders will have a minimum $25 delivery fee. We deliver anywhere to Little Rock or North Little Rock. For deliveries outside of Little Rock, our regular delivery charge is $1.25 per mile, to and from Blue Cake. Cakes that have longer set up, due to design or delivery site, may incur extra charges. Don't worry, we will be happy to discuss these details with you prior to your event.
Cake deliveries are generally 2-3 hours before the start of the event. It takes us anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour to set up, depending on how much work needs to be completed on site. If your cake contains mousse or fresh fruit, we deliver 1-2 hours before the event to maintain freshness.
Cake Stands and Decorations
Glass stands are included in the price of any wedding cake. We do require a $75 deposit check, which we hold and return when the stand comes back. If you would rather not have a stand, the cake can be placed on a nicely wrapped board that is suitable for presentation on its own. If you are supplying the stand, please let us know the dimensions and style, so we can make the appropriate adjustments.
We are happy to set up the cake, arrange any floral decorations on your cake or arrange desserts on platters or stands upon delivery- please let us know in advance so we can plan accordingly.
We understand changes in your life can cause changes in your plans. If you need to cancel or postpone an order, please let us know at least 2 weeks in advance for weddings and 48 hours for general celebration cakes to receive a refund (minus pre-made specialty decor charges). Cancellations after the grace period is up to the discretion of store managers.
We recommend that you reserve your date as soon as you decide. For busy months, such as May and June (or October!), you should book 6-9 months in advance (the sooner the better!) A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your date. You can secure your date as early as you like. The design and flavors can be decided anytime after that at your convenience, as long as everything is finalized 2-3 weeks before your wedding.
To reserve your date, a deposit of $100 is required. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
To decide how much cake you need, we recommend planning on ordering for 60% - 70% of the number of guests you’ve invited. Depending on how much food and drink you will be serving at your reception, we recommend that you have at least one serving per person between your wedding and grooms cake, plus a little more. For a light afternoon reception, you may want to increase that to one and a half serving per person. For a late reception, with an open bar and lots of food, you may not need as much!
Let us know if you will be having an outdoor reception. We recommend your treats be kept indoors during hotter days. Sun and heat can melt frosting and make your items unstable. If you do need to have your cake outdoors, then keep in mind the cake will need to be covered in fondant or non-dairy whipped icing, which is more stable in hot weather. Cakes displayed outdoors cannot be filled with mousses, fruit, or other heat sensitive fillings. We are not responsible for any melting, damage, etc. to a cake displayed outdoors.
In order to make sure you have the best experience possible, we will deliver 1 hour prior to an outdoor event.
