I hired TY to make a birthday cake for my friends birthday. He listened to my request, made suggestion and together we decided what type of cake would best fit the party. I am overall extremely pleased with the cake (it tasted amazing), the look of the cake (gorgeous) and his customer service!Feb 19, 2016The Memory Caterer's reply

Delicious and Delighted. Ty made the most gorgeous chocolate birthday cake for us! The beautiful fondant was perfect. My guests all asked which bakery I used. Will definitely order all of my cakes from Sweet and Wonderful Bakery! Dr. Deborah Dawson Miami BeachApr 10, 2016The Memory Caterer's reply
Thanks Debbie for you review and I'm so grateful you enjoyed your birthday cake! I most certainly had a lot of fun making and decorating it. It makes me happy it turned out to be hit! I excited forward to catering to all your bakery needs in the future!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I communicate with the client to find out exactly what they would like with no grey-areas. Then, I normally take a percentage of the deposit at the beginning with the signing of a contract which would normally cover the cost of the necessary beforehand products and collect the remaining balance the day of drop off or event. When it comes to catering i try to work with the clients stating at least $13.00 per person. Standard round cakes starting starting about $50.00. Wedding Cakes- 2 tier starts around ($500.00) 3 tier starts around (600.00). Personal Chef Services i typically charge $25.00 per hour. Cooking classes could run at a base price of $300.00 per session.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Primarily, thank them for allowing me the opportunity to cook for them and their guest. Understanding that as the new client, they are trusting me to make a good impression which i have no problem doing. I listen attentively taking notes and already thinking of ways to cater to their needs. Then i communicate the options and routes we could take in order to make this a successful event for them and the guests. Everyone smile with a full belly and a happy heart.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been cooking and baking my whole life side by side with my gramps. Watching and listening, carrying, helping and tasting. This served as a stepping stone to allow me to feel even more comfortable in the kitchen and know what good food taste like. I attended Johnson and Wales University right after High School and received my Associates. I worked in different parts of the U.S such as Las Vegas, NV, Harbor Beach, MI and a few cites here in florida such as Aventura, Miami Gardens, and Miami Beach
