How far in advance should I place my order?

As much as we try to accommodate last minute orders, sometimes it is just not possible. So, please place your order as soon as you have solidified the date of your event.
We only use quality ingredients - Couverture chocolate, buttermilk, heavy cream, real sweet cream butter, fresh fruits and pure vanilla bean extract.. All of our recipes are made fresh for clients with the best REAL ingredients and flavors we can get our hands on! Our fondant is made in-house, so it has a wonderful taste! We also make out own buttermilk, salted caramel, fruit fillings, and ganache. Our buttercream is made only with real butter, no shortenings will ever be added. These quality ingredients do cost more, but also gives our clients the highest quality, best tasting product possible.
We use the industry standard serving size of 1" x 2" x 4" slices, but our cake tiers are taller than standard, and are generally closer to 5 1/2" in height.

Yes! Please fill out our consultation form to schedule a meeting. There is a $25 scheduling fee, but this amount will be taken off the final cost of your cake.
How does payment work?
Tampa Bay Cake Company works with Square to offer secure payment transactions. We also use their invoicing tool to ensure we get all the details right!
In order to secure your event date, we do require a $200 retainer for wedding cakes. This ensures commitment on both of our ends.
