Frequently Asked Questions

I'm pretty sure I hate fondant... but wait, what is fondant exactly?

Many of our cakes are covered in homemade marshmallow fondant, which is a sugar dough made from powdered sugar and melted mini-marshmallows. If you’ve ever had fondant on another cake, you know how badly traditional fondant tastes. Marshmallow fondant, on the other hand, tastes delicious and looks just as great as regular fondant since it's actually just melted marshmallows with more sugar. We cover our cakes in buttercream before covering them in a thin layer of marshmallow fondant. For those of you who think you don't like fondant, we encourage you to try ours. We've turned many to the dark side!

Do you deliver or ship cakes?

Yes, we can deliver and set up your cake in Utah. No, we cannot ship cakes outside of Utah. Delivery prices are calculated according to total travel distance. Generally, delivery and set up to:
- Salt Lake City is around $60-80
- Bountiful, Millcreek Canyons, and Orem are around $65-85
- Layton and Park City are around $85-115

Please contact me for specific prices on delivery. There is no charge for pick up orders, however, every 30 minutes that you are late to pick up a cake, there is a $10 late charge. (Sorry! I can't wait around all day :)

What are your cake prices?

All of our cakes are unique and customized to fit your needs so we do not have set prices for the cakes on our website. Cakes are priced according to several different criteria. Our wedding serving sizes are larger than most traditional bakeries since we only have one serving size chart. Whether you eat this at a wedding, at a party, or in your living room, it's all the same base price and size. Factors that add to the price include intricate fondant decorations, painting, or other time consuming design elements, and delivery. Price estimates will be provided when orders are placed, but final prices are not set until the design is completed. This quote is only valid for two weeks and a deposit is required to hold the price.
For now, we take cash, check, Venmo, Square Cash, or credit cards via Square. There is a $25 fee for bounced checks.

How do I order a cake or cupcakes?

We prefer cake orders to be placed over email so that we can make sure to keep all of the details in written form. You can click on the "Order a Cake" link above to email me directly from the website. The most important piece of information is the date of your event. We have limited space and so we book our cakes on a first come, first deposit, first serve basis. Feel free to email us with any ideas of designs and styles that you have in mind. A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your date and the balance is due at least one week before the event.

We can only accommodate a limited number of cakes, depending on the complexity of the orders, so we suggest that you reserve your date as soon as possible with a deposit ($100 deposit for birthday cakes, $200 for wedding cakes). Most of our cakes are booked three weeks to several months in advance. There is a minimum order of a 6-inch cake or a dozen cupcakes.

Salt Cake City is not responsible for any damage to the order after setup is complete. You are responsible for providing an appropriate environment and sturdy table for the cake. Be aware that the optimal environment for a cake is inside an air conditioned room, away from direct sun rays. Cakes can weigh anywhere from 15-80 pounds so a sturdy and level table is required. Nobody wants a cake wreck! If flowers are provided, you acknowledge that flowers are not a food product and may contain pesticides, insects, dirt, or other contaminants. Salt Cake City is not responsible for any changes or damages made to the cake by a florist or flowers.

If you or someone you trust picks up and sets up the cake, you assume all liability and responsibility for the condition of the cake once it leaves Salt Cake City possession. I usually suggest having the cake refrigerated until around 30 minutes to an hour before the party or reception. 

Do you make sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan cakes?

Cake is essentially sugar mixed with sugar & dairy, iced with sugar and then covered in sugar. Unfortunately, I do not make any cakes that are sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan at this time. Additionally, I am unable to accommodate anyone with strict nut allergies since our products do come into contact with these allergens.
