Custom Orders & Weddings
We believe the wedding cake or desserts at your event are an integral part of the wedding experience you create for your guests. In person wedding consultations are available to discuss design and hold tastings, generally each consultation lasts at least one hour. We love cake and dessert inspiration pictures as well as pictures of other elements from your wedding design. Items such as dresses, paper products, floral design, dinner menu, color and design themes can all play an important role in designing a custom cake. We do not copy cake pictures exactly, but love to see cake inspiration pictures and will use them to design a custom cake that evokes the same feeling. These pictures are used for inspiration and create a cake to fit the design and feel of your event while allowing for our cake artistry to shine.
How far in advance should I book my cake or dessert order?
All cakes from The Noble Cakery are custom creations designed to fit each event and client's needs. We recommend booking a minimum of 4-6 months in advance for weddings and 2-3 months for special occasion cakes. The sooner you book your cake the better to ensure that you have ample opportunity to secure your preferred date and time. A very limited number of orders are taken each month due to the time consuming process of scratch baking and custom designing each cake, dessert, or sweets table.
How much will my cake cost?
Since each cake is custom designed there is not a one size fits all price. All cakes are based on serving size and design complexity. Tiered buttercream wedding cakes start at $5.00 serving. This is a base price only, all of our cakes and dessert tables are custom quoted to fit your budget and needs. Please fill out the form on our contact page for a custom quote.
Do you offer cake tastings?
Yes! Complimentary tastings are offered for our wedding clients to taste a variety of delicious cake and buttercream flavors. Tastings are held in our cake studio located in Oregon, IL. Each appointment is an intimate affair for the couple and one additional guest if desired. Tastings are presented in a fun mix and match format so that each couple can explore a variety of flavors and create a custom combination perfect for their cake.
what should i bring to my cake tasting?
Any and all details from your wedding can be helpful in designing your cake! Inspiration images/boards, fabric swatches, invitations, and floral details are all wonderful sources of design inspiration for your cake.
Do you offer cakes for special dietary needs?
We currently offer vanilla or chocolate gluten free cake options. French macarons are also a delicious gluten free dessert option. The Noble Cakery is not a gluten or allergy free kitchen, our facility regularly handles nuts and nut products, dairy and gluten. Please contact us for more information regarding allergies and how we may accommodate you.
Can I order a small cutting cake and additional servings as cupcakes or sheet cakes?
While we do offer smaller cutting cake options, please keep in mind the overall design and impact your cake will make. Often your venue will help determine the scale and design of your cake. A beautiful wedding cake can be a major focal point in your overall event design and venue space.
