& Events FAQ
Do you provide tastings?
We provide complimentary tastings for weddings & large events (over 100+ guest count*).
Our tastings are held at our downtown Minneapolis location and available by appointment only. They are scheduled on the hour and typically last 30-45 minutes:
- Wednesdays (3pm - 5pm, with 5pm being the latest start time)
- Thursdays (3pm - 5pm, with 5pm being the latest start time)
- Saturdays (10am - 1pm, with 1pm being the latest start time)
*Please note that there is no required minimum guest count for a tasting if you are a client with one of our partner venues or caterers.
Don't meet the minimum guest count or don't need a tasting?
Having a smaller wedding and you don't meet the minimum guest count for a tasting? No worries! While we unfortunately can't afford to have tastings for smaller weddings (even though we love you all equally), we would still love to work with you to make all your sweet I do dreams come true! Same thing goes for those of you already know you love us (awww, thanks!) or just want to cross this off your to-do list.
Let's have you fill out the form below and our wedding coordinator will get back to you ASAP* with some information.
*unfortunately in order to be "good employers" we have to give our coordinator some days off (Sunday & Monday). Please don't panic if you submit a inquiry over the weekend and don't hear back immediately!
Can't make it in for a sit-down tasting?
Have no fear, we can schedule a pick-up tasting as well if those dates & times don't work for you. If your event is over a 100 guests but you can't make a sit down tasting work, please feel free to schedule a time to pick up a tasting sample box.
What should I bring to my tasting?
Bring your fiancé, bridesmaid, best man, mom, dad, sister, second-cousin, dentist or your boss... but please limit it to 4 people total (including yourself). Otherwise you end up with too many cooks in the proverbial wedding kitchen.
Bring color swatches, lace swatches, photos of your dress, ideas, wishes and sweet dreams. We'll talk about them all and see if we can incorporate them into your wedding treats.
Oh... and bring your taste buds too.
Can I get a sculpted, fondant or custom designed cake?
We're SO sorry, but we do not offer sculpted cakes. Our tiny space does not have room to store all the different equipment we might need, our workbench does not allow us to spread out, and like all of our cakes, our wedding cakes are made with our strict "No Fondant Allowed" policy.
While we've created a great menu of our most popular wedding cake styles, we also understand that sometimes you have a special idea in mind for your wedding cake. At your tasting you can discuss these ideas with our wedding coordinator and after that they will work one-on-one with our head pastry chefs to determine what options we are able to create for you.
Please note that custom designed cakes are only offered for weddings and will incur additional custom design fees starting at $50.
Any other questions?
Please read through the rest of our weddings & events FAQ and if you still have questions, relating to tastings, weddings & large events, please contact our wedding team. Office days are Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Allergies and other dietary restrictions?
As a courtesy, we offer a variety of swoon-worthy baked goods with dietary & allergen options such as gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan & egg-free.
It's critical to note we are NOT a certified facility for processing these items. Flours, eggs, dairy, nuts and other ingredients CAN be cross-contaminated through shared equipment, tools & oil. People with severe or life threatening allergies are strongly advised not to consume our products. If you or your guests have any dietary or allergen needs, please consume our products AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Do you deliver, rent cake stands, setup & pickup weddings?
Weddings & Events Delivery: Our event delivery starts at $20 within downtown limits (94 loop). Outside of downtown Minneapolis delivery starts at a $20 flat rate + $2 per mile from our location + $20 labor fee per hour driving.
We ask for a minimum of a 1 hour delivery window for all events and weddings.
Prices and rates subject to change without notice.
Cake Stand Rental & Setup: We offer a beautiful, eclectic array of cake stands to use for your show-stopping dessert buffet, perfect for almost any venue from shabby-chic to modern glam and everything in between.
Because we want to ensure that you are as proud of the dessert table as we are, we do require that Angel Food handles the rental and setup as a package. Unfortunately due to limitations and restrictions we can't offer just rental of our stands and we also cannot offer rental & setup for another vendor's products.
Deposits & Deadlines:
Wedding & Event Deposits: We know how much can change in a few months, so we don't require deposits to reserve a spot in our calendar. Keeping this in mind, we still encourage you to book your event ASAP as we work on a first-come, first-serve basis and do have times that are fully booked.
Deadlines & Cancellations: For the sake of sleeping soundly at night, we strive to have all details & payment finalized by 1 month from the event.
Our final final deadline is to have everything wrapped up and paid in full by 14 days from the event. Up until this point there are no cancellation fees.
Once we're within the 2 week window there are no changes or refunds offered. This is to allow proper timing and planning to ensure that your wedding or event goes p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y.Up to this point there is a 50% cancellation fee.
Last Minute (within 1 month) Events: Sometimes you just can't wait to get married, but your parents won't allow you to run to the courthouse and celebrate at a food truck (trust us, we tried that route)... Or sometimes your boss drops a big "can you grab treats for the big party next week" project on your lap. Please don't hesitate to contact us with your last minute event requests. While we can't promise anything, we'll do everything in our power to help you out! Payments for events within that 2-week deadline are required within 24 hours of booking and cancellation/refund policy still applies.
