Got Questions?

 

GOT QUESTIONS? WE’VE GOT ANSWERS!

 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I HAVE TO PLACE AN ORDER?

Usually a few weeks in advance will do, but we can book up months in advance during wedding season. To be safe, give us a call as soon as you know the date of your party. We can always work on the design later, but best to get on our calendar early!

 

HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER?

Give us a call! We’d love to speak with you personally about the cake you’re ordering for your special occasion. If you prefer testing the waters with email, we can do that too: gimmecake@thebutterend.com! In your email, please let us know the date of the party and how many people the cake will serve.

 

Sara is happy to answer any questions or take your booking from 9am-5pm Monday through Friday. You can reach her directly: 310-943-9241

DO YOU HAVE A BAKERY CASE FOR READY-TO-GO GOODIES?

Sadly we do not have a case full of tasty treats to go. We’re not that kind of bakery. We make everything to order, so I’m afraid you’ll be so disappointed if you stop by wanting to pick up a small sweet.

IS YOUR SHOP OPEN TO THE PUBLIC?

No, we are by appointment only.

DO YOU DELIVER?

We sure do! We deliver from Santa Barbara to San Diego… and as far East as Arizona!

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A TASTING AND CONSULTATION?

After we chat on the phone about your special event, we’ll either invite you in for a one hour design consultation and tasting with Kimberly, or arrange a time for you to swing by and pick up a tasting box.

 

Appointments for tastings may be scheduled Wednesdays in the afternoons and evenings. Please call ahead to reserve your appointment time.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

We are in the process of building a new kitchen in Los Angeles. Tastings will continue in Santa Monica on Wednesdays.

HOW MUCH ARE YOUR CUSTOM CAKES?

Wedding cakes start at $8 per serving for buttercream finishes. Most Wedding and Custom cakes fall into the $10 – $15 per serving range. We will have a design consultation either over the phone or in person and give you a sketch and quote for your creation.

 

There is a minimum of $250 for each custom cake and a $500 for sculpted cakes.

HOW MUCH ARE DESSERT BARS?

Individual specialty desserts are quoted per order, as each order is different. Minimums apply. Most dessert bars start at a minimum of $15pp.

 

We love making bite sized desserts as gorgeous and tasty as our cakes. Give us a call and we will discuss budget and menu offerings. We customize each dessert bar to match your event. Presentation platter and set up services are available.

HOW DO I PAY FOR MY CAKE AND SECURE MY DATE?

All orders require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of the order to hold the date, with the balance due two weeks prior to the event date. We accept credit cards as well as good old fashioned cash.

DO YOU RENT CAKE PLATES AND DESSERT BAR TABLEWARE?

Yes indeed! We offer a variety of beautiful options to display our cakes and desserts.

DO YOU DO ON-SITE PARTIES AND EVENTS?

Nothing makes Kimberly happier than to share her cake joy with party guests… you can hire her and her staff to do an activity table of cake creations… great for holiday parties, birthday parties, Mitzvahs, corporate shin digs, you name it!

DO YOU TEACH CLASSES?

While we are pretty busy making cakes, we do teach class from time to time, and we LOVE IT! Follow us on Facebook and on our Blog to be the first to know when we post a class!
