Give Thanks!

We cannot believe that fall is here and November is already half way over! Thankfully, we survived an extra long wedding season this year. This past weekend was the last of our main wedding season and we couldn’t be more happy for a tiny little break before the holidays start.

For Thanksgiving this year, we have two designs. Both cakes are buttercream with fondant accents. First up is a scarecrow:

And our other design is Give Thanks:

Once you pick your design, you can pick one of these flavors:

  • vanilla
  • chocolate
  • pumpkin spice
  • pecan pie (vanilla cake, brown sugar buttercream, pecan pie filling)

There are two sizes to choose from. A 6″ cake serves 8 and is $40 before tax and an 8″ cake serves 16 and is $60 before tax.

Cakes are available for pickup on Wednesday, November 23rd, and we will be taking orders through the end of the day on Saturday, November 19th.

To order, you can email mica@confectioneiress.com or call the shop at 317.873.0880. Be sure to include design, flavor, and size.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes…

Hi everyone…sorry for the delay in posts! Wedding and graduation season hit and always keeps us busier than we expect! This year seems to be even busier than last year.

With that being said, we have a few things that are changing. Pretty soon, I will be the only person doing all cake decorating, and because of this, we will be cutting way back on themed cakes. We will still offer the basic and the design a tiered cakes (like the photos below) with just a 72 hour notice, and there are plenty of options for customizing these including sugar flowers, stripes, chevron, polka dots, and more! We will try to do all that we can, but since I am just one person, there is only so much that I can do!

So, for custom cakes, we will be limiting it to a small number each week and all future custom cake orders will START at $150 (and still be priced based on design). There also will be a $75 non-refundable deposit to secure, and the date is not secured until the deposit is paid. All current inquiries and orders will not change so no worries there! That does mean that some weeks will book up further out (especially during busy months) so we may already be booked for a date several months out due to wedding season or other large events, and if you are wanting to check a date, you can always email, call, or check the Facebook page (there is a photo pinned to the top of the page that shows dates we are booked for the themed cakes).

We hope that everyone understands and bares with us through this. We also hope that this is not a permanent change, but right now, everyone is working as hard as we can and we want to make sure that we can keep the quality of cakes you guys expect and us keep our sanity. We have the best employees and we all work as much as we can, and we do often miss out on a lot of things that we would love to do and time and events with our families. While I enjoy making cakes, I do not enjoy working 70-80  hours a week all the time (and I know the other employees do not either!). I know many people will be upset and disappointed with this change, but doing things this way still allows us to offer custom cakes and not eliminate them completely. I do not want to just cut all custom options out since I do enjoy making custom cakes for all of your events!

Thank you so much for stopping by as well as for everyone’s support and understanding! If you want to place an order or have any questions, feel free to send an email to mica@confectioneiress.com!

Have a good week!
