FAQ

How to set up a tasting ?

The best way to set up a tasting is to email us at weddings@mclainsbakerykc.com, or to fill out the wedding inquiry below.  Please include in the e-mail the following information: Name, Date of wedding, Venue, Approx number of guests, flavors you prefer, any pictures you have for inspiration for you cake (feel free to browse our Instagram, look on pinterest etc..) Don't worry if you don't know final details, that will happen when we meet for the tasting.

When do you offer tastings ?

Due to the bakery having early morning hours, and our cake decorators arriving very early in the morning, we offer tastings during the week, Monday-Thursday between 7am- 1pm. We do our best have one day month where we do tastings later in the day, and also are happy to put together a "to-go tasting" box if that is what works best for you. We unfortunately can not do tastings Friday, Saturday, or Sunday due to an increase in cakes orders on the weekends.

What flavors do you offer for cake and icing ? 

Our most popular flavors are our white cake and chocolate cake. We also offer Almond, Carrot, and Red Velvet year round. As well as a few seasonal flavors that vary throughout the year (please inquire about specialty flavors).  We specialize in Buttercream icing as it is the most popular but are happy to discuss fondant options as well.  

How far out do I need to book ?

It depends on the time of year your wedding is. We book up to a year out and sometimes just a few weeks out. We do cut off availability once we have hit our capacity, which is based off of several factors. A rule of thumb is that May, June, Sept, and Oct our the busiest months for our cake decorators. The way to reserve your date is to put down a $100 deposit.

Where does your pricing start ?

We price our wedding cakes by the slice. All of our wedding cakes are 3 layers, as opposed to the traditional 2 layer cake. They start at $4.50 per slice and pricing varies based on the style, decor, flavor, icing, etc.. We are happy to put a proposal together for you once we have been able to get all of the information together needed for a complete proposal.

Do you deliver ?

Yes, we deliver to the KC Metro area, we do charge based on the location. Delivery starts at $50.00 Friday or Saturday, and $75 on Sunday. You are also welcome to pick up wedding cakes that are 3 tier or smaller, but we are not responsible for the cake once it leaves our store.
