OUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
“How can I place an order?”
At Bowtie, we truly believe in making every order special and unique. We use the finest ingredients because baked goods shouldn’t only look good, they should taste good too!
You can place an order by sending us an email at Create@TheBowtieBakery.com or by clicking here to fill out an inquiry form. When inquiring about a cake please remember to include:
(1) The date of the occasion
(2) Serving size / How many guests you’re looking to feed
(3) The design of cake / cupcakes or what type of desserts you’re looking to order
All orders require a 25% deposit to be considered confirmed and secure your date. The remaining payment must be made at the time of pick up or delivery, before set up.
Please note* We require the full payment one week in advance for wedding cake orders.
"I have other desserts, and not everyone eats cake, I’m not too sure how many servings I need”
Sending us an inquiry and aren’t sure how many guests you need to feed? We have rough guidelines for cake servings that should be helpful. We recommend a cake that serves at least 85% of your guests if you anticipate not all guests will have a slice. If you have other dessert options, we recommend a cake that serves 30%-60% of the guest count, based on the variety and size of other dessert options. BUT, having too much cake isn’t always a bad thing!
"How much notice do you require for an order?”
We recommended booking as soon as possible. Although we always try to squeeze in every order, during wedding season peak months we recommend booking 3-4 weeks in advance for smaller orders. Larger orders and Wedding cake orders should be placed at least 3-4 months in advance. Long weekends are commonly fully booked up to a year in advance, and we hate turning away clients. If you’re unsure about
our availability check our Instagram for updates, or click here to send us an inquiry.
"Do you offer nut free cakes?”
Our baked goods are not nut free and are not made in a nut free environment. Some of our baked goods may contain traces of nuts. Please notify us if you have a nut allergy and are still looking to order from us.
"Can I come in for a cake tasting and consultation?”
Cake tastings and consultations are only meant for wedding cake orders or orders over $600. The cost of a cake tasting is $30, but if you book with us this amount will be taken off your total & your cake tasting is then free. A deposit is required to secure your wedding date, and final payments for all wedding cake orders must be made a week prior to the event. Feel free to check out our wedding cake collection here.
"How many flavours can I choose in a tiered cake?”
We offer 1 flavour per tier for all tiered cakes. There is no additional cost for this.
For cupcakes there is a two dozen minimum order for cupcakes, and we only offer 1 flavour per dozen. If you would like to split the one dozen into two flavours, it is an additional $10.
"Can I have my order delivered and set up?”
We offer delivery in and around the GTA area. Delivery prices range from $30-$70, depending on location and time of delivery.
Tiered cakes are always set up and price of delivery includes set up.
We do not recommend moving a tiered cake or cake table that has already been set up.
*Please note, we do offer desserts for dessert tables. We can deliver desserts to your venue, but we do not set up dessert tables or provide plating.
