Extraordinary Wedding Cakes
Be it simple and elegant or lavish and grand, no other dessert compares in stature to an exquisite wedding cake. Creating memorable masterpieces, ones that taste every bit as good as they look, has become our most cherished trademark.
My favorite wedding cakes are those that reflect a subtle sophistication; where whimsy, artistry or drama is achieved with precision and restraint. Cakes whose flawless exterior is surpassed only by a superb interior…those composed of exquisite American, French and Belgian chocolates, artisanal butter, hormone-free milk and cream straight from the dairy, and sun ripened fruit at the height of its season. First and foremost, the ultimate wedding cake must be an extraordinary dessert. This means no mixes, nothing artificial, absolutely no compromise.
Imagine a moist, intensely chocolate cake alternately layered with house-made fleur de sel caramel and luscious chocolate truffle cream. Or, perhaps, an old-fashioned layer cake infused with refreshingly tangy organic lemons, and studded with plump berries picked that morning. Imagine your cake is not a replica from the pages of trendy wedding magazines, but rather a glorious work of edible art designed especially for your day, reflecting your taste and style.
Whether it is light and fruity, sentimentally vintage, or seriously chocolate (and I mean serious!), we are committed to designing the wedding cake of your dreams; one that will highlight the reception, be devoured in its entirety, give ’em something to talk about.
After all, your special day deserves a Perfect Ending!
Congratulations and Bon Appetìt!

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 wedding cake cost?
Our wedding cakes are priced from $13.00 per serving for a simple design with minimal décor. Cakes with more detailed design elements can range from $15.00 to $25.00 per serving and beyond. There is a $750.00 minimum for all wedding cakes. Our Elopement or small presentation cakes serve 20 people and are priced at $260. Delivery fees are not included in the base price of the cake. The final price of your cake is determined by the design, number of servings and the delivery/set-up requirements. We will provide you with a written estimate once your cake design is confirmed.
May I sample your work?
Absolutely! We invite each couple and two guests to a consultation where you will sample a variety of cakes and view our portfolio. Our goal is to plan your cake entirely when we are with you, so we advise you to bring in any material or images that will help us understand your vision. Please note that we can accommodate a maximum of four people at the consultation. We require advance notice for additional guests and there is a $25.00 fee for each additional person, which is not applied to the cost of your cake.

May I supply design ideas?
We love collaborating with our clients, as the cake should absolutely reflect your taste and style. We have a portfolio of original designs so that you can evaluate our skill and possibly be inspired by choices others have made. You may select one of these designs or elect to have us create an original cake for your special day. Out of respect to our colleagues and our desire to be unique, we do not replicate cakes that have been made by other cake designers, published in magazines, or seen on television. We encourage you to bring in photos or any visual aids that you feel will assist us in understanding the style of cake you desire. We regret that on rare occasions there are some design requests that we cannot fulfill. We do not supply sketches or design ideas until your order is confirmed with a nonrefundable /nontransferable deposit.
Do you deliver?
It has been our privilege to successfully deliver our wedding cakes locally and throughout the United States, Europe, South America and Asia. The fees for delivery are determined by distance, method of transport, carrier, handling and set-up requirements. Rest assured, we will get the cake from our oven to your table…no matter where you are in the world!
Do you supply flowers?
Yes, we decorate our cakes in their entirety. We request that you supply us with a list of preferred flowers and we will incorporate them into the design. We use botanically correct hand sculpted flowers made from sugar and a limited variety of non-toxic fresh flowers to your specifications.
When should I place my order?
You may place your order at any time. Our peak season for weddings is April through October. In order to maintain the uncompromising standards that have become our trademark, we often limit the number of events that we accept to fewer than ten per weekend during this period. Ordering a minimum of four to six months in advance is highly recommended. In order to reserve your date, a 50% deposit is required. All deposits and payments are nonrefundable and nontransferable. Reservations are taken on a first come, first serve basis. If your date is nearly booked before you have an opportunity to meet with us, or if you want to secure our services and meet later to finalize details, we suggest that you send a deposit to hold your reservation. In most instances final design details are not due until one month prior to the event. Proposals are subject to change after 30 days.
