"Where are you located?"

Limited Edition Cakes in located at 217 S Main St in Madison, Nebraska.  Please contact me to set up an appointment to discuss ordering a cake.

 

"When should I place my order?'

I suggest you contact me at least six months prior for wedding cakes or even up to 1 year ahead if you are planning on a popular date.  Party cakes need to be ordered at least two months in advance.  I occasionally will be able to accept orders with short notice if my schedule allows. 

 

"When should I pay for my order?"

Wedding cakes and other large orders require a non-refundable $100.00 deposit to reserve a certain date.  This money will be placed toward the balance of your order.  The balance is due one month prior to your event. 

 

"How do I pay for my order?"

I accept cash or checks.

 

"What happens if I cancel my order?"

I understand that unexpected situations arise, which may cause you to cancel or postpone your event.  However, I strive for quality over quantity, and turn away other orders once you have booked your order.  Therefore, a cancellation means not only the loss of your order, but additional lost business as well.

 

With that in mind, should you cancel your order for any reason, any and all payments made up to that point are non-refundable.  If you need to postpone your event and would like to reschedule, I will do my best to make it work, however I cannot guarantee that your new date will be available.

 

"Do you offer wedding consultations?"

I would be more than happy to meet with you to discuss your ideas for your cake. I also offer two tasting options to meet your needs. 

 

1.  Sample Cake  This is a 6" round cake with your choice of flavor and filling.  It is frosted with buttercream.  This is the perfect option if you know what flavor you like but want to make sure my cakes please your pallet.  This cake will serve approximately 12 people, so it is a good option if several people want to taste before placing an order.  The cost of a sample cake is $20.00.

 

2.  Custom Tasting  The custom tasting offers 3 cake flavors and 3 filling flavors along with a sample of my buttercream.  You choose the flavors and fillings.  There is enough product for two people to sample.  It is packaged neatly for you to take home and enjoy with a cup of coffee.  The cost of a custom tasting is $20.00.

 

"Do you deliver?"

Yes.  Free delivery of wedding cakes and large orders within the city of Madison. The delivery fee for surrounding towns is $.57 per mile round trip.

 

"Why are custom cakes more expensive than cakes from a grocery store?"

Grocery store cake layers are mass produced and iced on an assembly line.  That's why you sometimes see cake peeking through!  They are then frozen, boxed, and trucked to the local stores where they're frozen until thawed out to fill the bakery shelves.  A custom cake is freshly baked and decorated only when a customer places an order.  A custom cake allows you the freedom to collaborate with your baker for a design style that is unique as your event.  These works of edible art take many hours to complete.  More intricate and complex designs may take days before the cake is even assembled.

 

"Can you make a cool 3-D cake like they do on the Cake Shows?"

Nothing is out of the realm of possibility!  However, the spectacular 3-D cakes you see on TV carry a steep price tag.  Ace of Cakes charges a minimum of $1,000 per cake!  3-D cakes are very labor intensive and take time and skill to correctly design and construct, so they are indeed more expensive than a regular cake.  These types of cakes are priced individually per order.
