Special Occasion Cakes
Special occasion cakes are the exclamation point to any celebration. Be it the iconic first birthday, something sweet for 16, or a gilded masterpiece for number 50, there must be cake! Perhaps it’s vintage Americana that suits your fancy, like grandma used to bake, or that ethereal perfection you tasted in Paris. It can be round and rustic, clean and contemporary, a towering edifice, or a pot filled with hand-sculpted posies. Above all, it must taste every bit as good as it looks…and it will!

A Matter of Taste
To us, your cake should be much more than something beautiful to behold; it must also be an extraordinary dessert…one that rivals those served in any Michelin star restaurant. A tasting at Perfect Endings is composed of various cakes that will vary in flavor and texture, from intensely chocolate to sweet and vintage to light and fruity. We’ll take you from Paris to Vienna, across the Heartland of America to the deep, delicious South! Because we have a difficult time deciding, our repertoire changes from time to time depending on what excites us at on any given day. Some of our favorites are…

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a special occasion cake cost?
The cost of your cake is determined by the design. We offer a wide rage of cakes for every occasion, be it a casual family gathering or a grand celebration. We have six design categories from which you can choose starting from $11 per serving with a minimum of $250. Once your final design is determined we will provide you with an estimate for your cake.
When should I place my order?
You may place your order at any time, however it is our preference to have as much notice as possible, with a minimum of 48 hours notice for simple designs. Some cake designs are complex and require weeks –often months- of planning, so having an abundance of time to prepare is always welcomed and often necessary. Please note that we often limit the number of cakes that we accept, and all orders are taken on a first come, first serve basis.
How do I place my order?
To order your special occasion cake please call our office to confirm availability and provide us with details of the event. You may also make an appointment to come in and discuss your case in person. In addition to all pertinent information about your event (date, time, location, number of guests, occasion, etc.), here is what we will need you to provide us with:
Keywords about the guest of honor: What they like, and dislike, with regard to design and flavor. Any images and visual aids that will help us understand your vision for the cake would be extremely helpful, and should be submitted prior to ordering.
Budget: We can interpret a particular theme or design in many different ways; simply and understated or elaborately detailed. Knowing the amount you have budgeted for your cake helps us pinpoint the ideal method of interpretation. If you do not have a specific design in mind our gifted team of artisans will make suggestions that will reflect the taste and style of the guest of honor. Please note that we do not provide design ideas or sketches until your order is confirmed, and orders are not confirmed until we have received payment in full, which is nonrefundable and nontransferable. Please also note that out of respect for our colleagues within the industry, we do not copy designs made by other cake companies, nor do we replicate cakes seen in magazines or on television.
