Q. How far in advance should I place my order?
Clients are encouraged to schedule a consulation as soon as an event date has been set.

Currently booking 2016-2017 weddings and weekends do fill up! A 50% deposit is required to secure your date, 50% of the balance is due 1 month before your event date. Of course, special situations arise and short planning is needed, just contact me and let's see what we can do!
Event Cakes and Cupcakes
For event and celebration cakes, three to four weeks in advance is all that is needed.
Q. I saw a photo of a cake that I love. Can you recreate it?
If you saw an image of a cake that you fell in love with, please bring a photo with you to your consultation. I am able to recreate the overall feel of the design, but not the exact cake. Aspen Charm believes each client should have a custom cake desgined for them. Your cake should be special for you!
Q. What do I need to bring to our cake consultation?
During our meeting, I will collaborate on a custom cake design that embodies the full vision you have in mind for your event. Please bring anything that you would like to incorporate into your design and/or is the inspiration behind your event. I can pull inspiration from invitations, centerpieces, decor, bouquets, venue, theme, heirloom, or dress!
Q. Are there gluten free/dietary options?
At this time, I do not offer nut, gluten free, or dairy free options. I do look forward to catering to this growing market in the future.
Q. What if I order my wedding cake and it's less than two months away?
There is a rush fee of $150 if your wedding cake is ordered less than two months of your wedding day in addition to your wedding cake.
