Our Fondant Difference and Why You May Want to Replace a Buttercream Cake
The common misconception about fondant is that it replaces frosting on a cake. It does not, especially at The Cake Flower. We love cake with frosting and our cakes are just that, even with fondant on them. Each cake is filled with delicious, from-scratch frostings and fillings that complement each cake. We use a delicious Marshmallow Fondant (MMF) on our cakes, often colored and flavored with candy melts and/or semisweet chocolate. Although our fondant is very delicious, and, of course, edible, we still value the traditional combination of cake and frosting. When you order a fondant-covered Cake Flower cake, you receive a scrumptious masterpiece: a cake filled with frosting and/or other delicious fillings, covered in ganache or frosting and then draped in delicate Marshmallow Fondant. Your guests will still be pleased to eat a decadent traditional cake covered with beautiful fondant. We think of it as the perfect finish to your cake. Do not be afraid to order fondant! We promise that the artistry of fondant will not compensate the delectable taste of your cake.

The Artistry Behind The Cake Flower
Each cake is made-to-order, meaning that every aspect of your cake is planned out carefully and meticulously weeks, perhaps months before your event. Each cake is made specifically to enhance and complement your event. The very meaning of “complement” is “a thing that completes or brings to perfection.” We hope that our artistic work will truly be that – a perfect focal point for your event that you will love!
Cake Pedestal and Cake Stand Rentals
All cake pedestals require a $100 deposit. Stands require a $30 deposit, which will be refunded to you upon return of the item in the condition it was rented within four days of the event. Cake pedestals require a $30 rental fee. Cake stands require a $10 rental fee.
Cake Dummy Prices
Cake Dummies are a good way to cut down on servings at an event, especially when the design that has been chosen is larger than the cake servings needed. For this purpose, we are happy to substitute in cake dummies when needed for cakes larger than three tiers. A substitution of a cake dummy will be priced at 60% of the stated price for each tier, both for buttercream and for fondant. For example, a 6”, 8”, 10”, and 12″ fondant cake would normally be $552 (130 wedding cake servings). If you were to substitute in a fondant-covered dummy for the 12” tier, your cake would be $457 (74 wedding cake servings). Cake Dummies for any tier require a $20 deposit. Cake Dummies must be returned within 4 days of the event in order for a full refund. Please do not wash, de-construct or un-decorate the cake dummy. We will take care of that for you. *Please note: as part of The Cake Flower’s contractual agreement, please do not provide additional cake from other establishments. All cake (including sheet cakes) must be ordered from The Cake Flower. Ordering cake from another establishment misrepresents The Cake Flower and its high-quality products. Doing so may incur additional fees, up to the amount of the cake ordered from The Cake Flower.
Cake Delivery or Pick-up
Our cakes are guaranteed when they are delivered. Clients with events within the Utah Valley county will be charged a $20 delivery and set-up fee. Please provide the address for delivery at the time of ordering.
Those in Salt Lake County will be charged an additional $20 (total of $40). Adjoining counties (Wasatch, Tooele, Morgan, Juab, San Pete, Carbon, Davis, etc.) will be charged on a distance basis of $5 per 15 miles outside of Utah County after the $20 charge. All other counties will be charged in addition, based on distance. We are happy to have you pick up your order. We work meticulously to make sure that the cake can be transported safely to its final location. However, we only guarantee the safety of the cake if it is delivered. If you are ordering a cake over two-tiers, it will need to be assembled on-site. Sometimes this can be done by the client. Most times, it will need to be assembled and decorated by The Cake Flower, and will not be available for customer pick-up.
Payment and Deposit
A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required to place an order and secure a delivery date. The remaining balance is due two (2) weeks prior to the delivery date. Any changes to the order are subject to availability, must be made in writing no later than one (1) month prior to delivery and may incur additional charges.
Payment can be made via cash or check (payable to Natalie Paukstys). Credit cards are accepted with a 3.25% fee. (The Cake Flower accepts Mastercard, Discover, Visa, and American Express.)
If the contract is cancelled, The Cake Flower will retain the entire deposit amount. For cancellations within seven (7) business days prior to the event, the entire amount of the contract is still owed to The Cake Flower. The balance payment is refundable provided The Cake Flower is notified at least seven (7) business days prior to the event.
