Emphasizing unique style without sacrificing taste, owner and baker Mona Valenty encourages you to make the cake selection process an intimate part of the planning for your special day. She welcomes you into her home, where you can create the cake of your dreams.
The Design Process
Mona personally meets with all of her clients, ensuring the designs, fillings, and flavors you want get implemented into the cake. She will work with you to fine tune an idea or inspiration, whether it be a fallen rust colored leaf, beaded lace from your bridal gown, or an embroidered handkerchief your grandmother gave you as your "something borrowed".
To start the design process, schedule a time to come in for a consultation and taste test. Many brides book their cakes 6-12 months in advance, so take this into consideration when scheduling your consultation. This is not always necessary, but as with all wedding vendors, the earlier you come in the better chance you have of securing your date.
Mona personally designs, bakes, fills, and decorates every cake, and will make your cake as close to the day of your wedding as possible to ensure freshness.
