Do you offer wedding cake tastings?

We offer Cupcake Sample Boxes 2-3 times per year; 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. 

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 Gluten Friendly or Vegan items?

We offer a chocolate cake made with gluten free ingredients; however we cannot guarantee they are fully free from from gluten contaminants, as the kitchen does use a variety of ingredients. We do not offer vegan cakes/cupcakes 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.

Do you rent Cake Stands?

We do not offer Cake Stand rentals at this time; Amazon or Home Sense are great options to purchase your own stand(s).

Do you offer Delivery?

Cake by Taryn requires all wedding orders to be delivered. This is to ensure the cake, and desserts, make it to your destination in pristine condition. Local delivery fees vary, with highway travel beginning at $45.
