Wedding Information

Delivery and Set Up

Delivery and Set Up is available, and highly recommended, for your special day.  If you or your representative elect to pick up and set up your order, you assume all liability and responsibility for the condition of your order once it leaves Shade Tree Bakery's possession.  My minimum wedding delivery fee is $25.00.  Delivery charges outside of the Des Moines Metro vary based on mileage and typically start at $25.00 plus 50 cents per mile.  Contact me for a delivery quote.



**All prices are subject to change at any time without notice.  Prices that are not quoted to you directly from Shade Tree Bakery will not be honored.**

***** Our products may contain, or come into contact with, milk, wheat, nuts, soy and other allergens.  Shade Tree Bakery will not be responsible for notifying your guests of the risk of allergic reactions.  Although we do our best to accommodate the needs of those with allergens we cannot guarantee that our products have not and will not come into contact with allergens.*****

Wedding Cake Pricing

Wedding Cake prices vary considerably based on the amount of servings you would like and the complexity of the design.  Most buttercream designs start as low as $3 per serving and fondant cakes start at $4 per serving.  2 tier cakes start at $75.00 and 3 tier cakes start at $130.00.  If you would like to provide me with some details about what you may be interested in, including total number of guests, I would be happy to start gathering some pricing information for you.  Have a specific budget?  Let me know so we can plan the perfect custom design without breaking the bank.

Consultations Are Available!

I do offer tasting consultations for weddings by appointment only.  Most consultations are approx 30-60 minutes long.  I typically do not have weekend appointments available as I am a one person operation and that is my busiest time and my schedule fills up very quickly.  I will do my best to accommodate your schedule.  

When you contact me to schedule a consultation I will let you know where we will be meeting.  You may choose up to four flavor combinations to try during your appointment with me.  The cost of the tasting is $25.00.  I charge this amount as I am making everything fresh, just for you on the day of your consultation.  Then when you book with me that $25.00 will be deducted from your total deposit amount as long as your total order amount is over $200.00.
