Grooms Cake

We will be adding more Grooms Cake pictures soon. Let the groom express himself with a custom made grooms cake. What are his hobbies and interests? Many times the groom is not real involved with the details of the wedding. Here is a chance to let him add a personal touch to the event of your lives together. We have made many 3D cakes that express a theme the groom desires. Whether it be job related, sports related, or just his hobby, we can customize grooms cake to his liking. Or, surprise him with a specialty cake from you to him. A more recent tradition has been to have the Grooms Cake delivered to the rehearsal dinner as well. Whatever your needs, we can help!

Anniversary Cake

Many more anniversary cake pictures are coming soon! Surprise the loved ones in your life with a custom made anniversary cake. Many folks never had a special Wedding Cake or Grooms cake when they were married. Here is a chance to make a special anniversary that much more memorable. We can do just about any kind of cake. If you have pictures of the original wedding cake, we can recreate it for an extra special celebration. Call us to schedule a tasting, and discuss how we can create a beautiful Anniversary Cake just for you and your loved ones. After all, aren't they worth it?

Testimonials

"Wow" is all I can say about the wonderful cake you made for Mom's 50th birthday party…. People were freaking out over how good it was! People who NEVER eat cake were eating YOUR cake! I don't know what you put in that thing that made it so addicting Not only was it beautiful and exactly what we wanted, but it was enjoyed by everyone at the party, as were the dessert shooters you created. Seriously, thank you SO MUCH. You have officially "sold me" on your very special cake I can't wait for the next opportunity to purchase one of your delicious cakes! :) – Amy B. 9/23

The cake we had at our wedding was beautiful and tasty. The Baking Grounds was so easy to work with and they helped us to design our wedding cake and our groom's cake. We used different flavors for different tiers and they were all excellent. They even specially made a flavor we wanted, butter pecan, and it was delicious! Their chocolate cake was simply amazing too. Our design turned out to be beautiful. The value was incredible. They blew everyone else out of the water. They didn't charge by the slice which can get pricey but just by the size of cake you wanted. That made it so easy and so affordable. I can't wait to eat our top tier in a year. – The Smiths, 7.17.12

The Baking Grounds provided us with both our wedding cake and groom's cake. We brought them a picture of what we were looking for and they were able to replicate it perfectly. We had shopped at several other bakeries before going to them and their price was half of the others. The cakes were tasty and moist. I would recommend them for any event. – Kim & Tom, 07/02/2012

FAQ

  • How soon should I order the cake?
  • Most wedding cakes are ordered 6-12 months in advance. For us, we only take a specific number of orders for each date, and for that reason, we advise you to order asap (if you decide to use us for your special day!) so we can hold your date.
  • What are your terms?
  • 50% down payment is due to hold the date and our services. Balance and final details are due 30 days before your event.
  • Do you have a portfolio of previous wedding cakes you've made that we can look at?
  • Yes, when you come in for your tasting..
  • Will you be having a tasting soon that we can attend and try various kinds of wedding cake and cake fillings?
  • We do custom cake tastings for you. We generally have two flavors of cake, and three fillings. If you have a particular flavor you want to try, let us know and we'll do our best to have it for your consultation.
  • Can you supply references?
  • Yes, and you can also look at our "testimonials" page on our website
  • Will you do a custom wedding cake, or are there a set number of designs for us to choose from?
  • We do any and all styles. We encourage you to bring your ideas to the tasting.
  • How adaptable are wedding cake designs, especially due to budget concerns?
  • Very. We currently have several specials listed on the home page of our website.
  • Do you have or can you rent items like cake stands, columns, and fountains?
  • Will we be billed extra? We have several, and the rental starts at 35.00
  • If I want to use fresh flowers on my cake, will you coordinate with my florist, or will I have to manage getting the flowers to you?
  • If they are real flowers, we will be glad to coordinate with your florist. If artificial, you can bring them to us for placement if you wish.
  • What ingredients do you typically use?
  • What kind of icing do you use? We use only the best. Fresh butter, flavor emulsions, and fillings. Our butter creme is by far the most popular, however we do fondant, cream cheese icing, and several others.
  • Are your wedding cakes priced by the slice?
  • We price our cakes differently than most cake bakers. We price it by size, and give you the range of servings we feel it will serve. Be careful to compare this with other bakery pricing. For instance, one of our competitor's claims a three tier cake serves 100. The same size cake from us we believe only serves 80 at most. If you want a razor thin slice for your guests, then add 30% to our serving guidelines. We also currently have specials that can save you as much as 20%!!! (restrictions apply)
  • Is there a price list I can see?
  • Yes, just click on "Our Products" and scroll down for a basic listing of prices and servings.
