Wedding Cake Q&A
Do you offer wedding cake tastings?
We offer Bridal Sample Boxes 2-3 times per year- October, February, March/April. Dates are advertised through social media, so be sure you follow us @cake_bytaryn.
We do not currently offer sit down tasting and consults- this is not feasible with our business model.
Due to COVID we are not offering bridal samples.
How much cake should I order?
Allow one slice of cake, or one standard cupcake, per guest. If you have dessert provided by your caterer, we suggest 2 mini cupcakes per guest, if you are only offering mini cupcakes for dessert, please allow 3-4 per guest. We suggest keeping flavours to a minimum, as guests will want to try "one of everything," taking more than bargained for.
Do you offer fondant wedding cakes?
As a buttercream primary bakery, we do not offer fondant covered cakes at this time. We can use fondant for decoration on our coveted buttercream cakes.
Do you offer Gluten Friendly or Vegan items?
We do not offer certified Gluten Free, or Vegan, items at this time. We can offer a Gluten Friendly chocolate cake/cupcakes. We do not offer Vegan/Dairy/Egg/Sugar Free items at this time.
How far in advance should I order?
We would suggest reserving your date 10-12 months in advance for May-September weddings and events. All other orders can generally be accommodated with a few weeks notice.
You don't have a storefront- where can I pick-up my order?
Taryn works out of a private kitchen- closed to the public. All wedding orders require delivery, beginning at $50 with the price increasing based on venue location, time required to set-up, and sensitivity of the cake/desserts ordered.
We offer complimentary local (excludes Westshore-Peninsula) delivery of single tier celebration cakes during the "off" season.
How far do you deliver?
Cake by Taryn services south of the Malahat. If you would like our goodies for your up island wedding, please get in touch and we can arrange a friend or family member to bring them up island for you!
