Amanda was fabulous! I ordered a cake for a bridal shower for my future daughter-in-law to feed 20-25 people, with a specific theme. Amanda didn't just do an outstanding job on the cake, she also delivered it to the venue too for a minimal fee. Plus we ended up with a larger party of 30 and there was still plenty of cake for everyone. The cake tasted scrumptious too. I will definately use "Specialty Cakes by Amanda" for future projects! Amanda - Fantastic Job! Thank you, T. HillmanMay 1, 2015VerifiedSpecialty Cakes by Amanda's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The prices are normally done by the slice. For buttercream iced cakes, the starting price is $5 per slice but can go up depending on the details. The fondant covered cakes start at $6per slice and again, the price can go up depending on the details and cake flavor chosen by the client. I do offer the top tier anniversary cake free of charge. Cupcakes range from $35-$50 per dozen and cake pops are $40 a dozen. Chocolate covered strawberries are $30 a dozen.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always like to set up a cake tasting and consultation with the couple to get a better understanding of what design and cake flavors they are wanting. Usually this meeting gives me the opportunity to connect with the couple and get a feel for what their theme or idea is for the wedding cake.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started helping my aunt who had been decorating and designing cakes for over 20 years at the age of 18. I always have had a love for drawing and creating things with my hands, so this came almost natural! I fell in love with it almost immediately!
