How to inquire & book a wedding cake
BOOK A CONSULTATION & TASTING
We suggest booking your wedding with us 3-6 months in advance. We book up quickly during Spring and Summer months, so we suggest booking as soon as possible. To do this, call or email to inquire about a consultation.
The consultation can last up to 45 minutes, where you can feel free to crush on our cakes and fall in love with our flavors at first bite. This tasting accommodates up to 3 guests; however, we will gladly reimburse you if you choose Crooked Tree for your wedding.
Tastings are $30 at our store, but if you are unable to personally attend a consultation, we are happy to discuss designs over the phone or via email, and we can have a box made up for you of the cake flavor options of your choice for you to come by and pick up.
Along with the inspirational sources that may influence your cake design, the following factors will need to be discussed to help with the design process:
* Number of guests – this determines whether multiple tiers are appropriate
* Preferred cake shape – whether round, square, or a combination of both.
* Whether you require a cake topper or sugar flowers
* Whether you require fresh flowers – fresh flowers on your cake can be arranged.
* Your budget – Even the simplest of cakes takes up to 10 hours of work, but we will work with you to do our best to accommodate your budget.
Also discussed will be whether you are traveling with your cake, as this will determine the type of cake and frosting we use, as well as the design. We do our best to package each cake as safely and securely as possible for travel but many factors come into play and could affect the transportation of your cake. Road conditions, weather, and the vehicle used for transport are things we cannot control for you but can possibly assist you with. Please talk with our decorators to discuss delivery options if this would be a service you would be interested in.
Depending on the design specifications, cake sketches may be drawn during the consultation, or we take the ideas discussed from our consultation and will email you some cake design sketches.
Upon booking with us you will receive a complimentary booking package!
It will include:
* A free consultation and tasting.
* A free anniversary top tier on your cake or a free anniversary cake 1 year later on your anniversary! (decorating fee may apply depending on the design).
* A full menu listing
* A $10 gift card for a couples coffee date (to be used all in one visit).
* A Crooked Tree bumper sticker and smart phone wallet.
* A coupon to use toward a grooms cake for 25% off.
We can make custom cake toppers that are made from modeling fondant for $75 per couple. Modeling fondant is an edible medium, however it is not recommended for consumption, as some toppers may have non-edible components as internal structure. They can be kept as keepsakes, but its colors will fade in time.
We offer a free delivery service for cakes valued at or over $500, in the Great Falls area. All other deliveries are $25 in town or charged by a per mile traveled fee for out of town deliveries.
