Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions regarding our wedding cakes and specialty cakes.
When should I book my wedding cake?
It is recommended to confirm your wedding cake 6-8 months prior to your wedding date. For weddings in the peak months of June, July, August, September and October you should consider booking your wedding cake 8-10 months in advance.
Do you offer consultations/tastings?
City View Bakehouse provides free consultations where you meet with Jennifer and discuss your wedding cake in detail. Since we have a retail location at the Charlottetown Farmers Market you will have the opportunity to taste our cupcakes either at the tasting or at the Market.
How do I confirm my wedding cake booking?
To confirm your wedding cake a deposit of 50% is required. The balance is due 1 month prior to your wedding date.
Do you rent the cake and cupcake stands in your photos?
Yes, we have many options to choose from; glass, porcelain and wood. In addition to the rental fee a deposit of $100 is required for all cake stand rentals. This deposit will be refunded once the stand is returned in original condition within 4 business days of the wedding.
What method of payment do you accept?
City View Bakehouse accepts cash, cheques, Interac email money transfers or money orders only.
Can I choose more than one Cake/ Cupcake Flavour? Will that cost me extra?
You can choose any flavour combination and there is never an additional charge for multiple flavours.
What choices of frosting and filling do you offer?
We offer more than 24 cake and cupcake flavour combination
Are you a nut free bakery?
We have both peanuts and tree nuts in our bakery. Not all products contain nuts but the kitchen equipment is used interchangeably for items with and without nuts.
Our cakes are torted with your choice of filling(s) then coated in a thick full layer of smooth Swiss meringue buttercream and then covered in a layer of fondant. We find that fondant offers the most crisp, clean finish, and it provides the best canvas for our custom designs. We use a high-quality professional fondant, and we’ve had many customers who’ve had not-so-great past experiences tell us that they love the taste of our fondant. Some people like fondant and some don’t. When wedding cake is cut generally each person only has a small piece of fondant with their cake.
