Placing An Order
Heather Barranco Dreamcakes are individually designed for each client and made to exact specifications. Our studio is open by appointment only at at our two locations. Our Simply Chic line is made for those not looking for custom designs, but want something beautiful, stylish and modern.
Please feel free to ask us a question by filling out the form on the right, or call us at +. We will be happy to contact you with an answer to your inquiry within 3 business days. Filling out this form does not obligate you to place an order. An event date is not reserved until we receive a signed Cake Order Form accompanied by a 50% deposit.
Our minimum cake order is $300. See below for more prices.
It is recommended for weddings that we meet face-to-face to ensure that we design the cake of your dreams. After the deposit is made, we will send a designer sketch to you for your approval.
Why not schedule a tasting? Dreamcakes will prepare up to four cake samples for you to try to help you make the most important flavor-of-your-dreams. Our consultations last about 1 hour. Cake tastings are complimentary for cake orders over $1000, placed within a week of the consultation. Tastings are $50 if an order is not placed within a week of your tasting or your order is below $1000. This fee is non-refundable. Cake tastings must be scheduled in advance and samples can be taken to go, if you prefer, although we’d be delighted to share this moment with you in person. Tastings are not a part of the initial consultation, unless arrangements have been made ahead of time.
Deposits and Scheduling
We recommend booking with us at least 2-3 months in advance and no later than 2 weeks before your special event. If possible, it is recommended that your order is placed as soon as your event has been scheduled, especially during busy seasons (think June, brides and grooms)! We are of the plan-ahead school, although we have been known to cram when necessary.
Dreamcakes requires a signed cake order form, along with a 50% deposit, to reserve the order date. Deposits are non- refundable. The remainder of the balance is due no later than 2 weeks before your event. If the final payment is not made 2 weeks before the event date, we reserve the right to cancel your order. Last minute orders, placed within 2 weeks of the event, must be paid in full at the time that the order is placed.
If you need to cancel your order, the final payment is only refundable if Dreamcakes is notified 14 days prior to event date. Any changes to the design or flavor must be made more than 14 days prior to event, as some parts of cake decoration need to be made in advance.
Our minimum cake order is $300, for a Simply Chic Line cake. Custom cakes start at $500 and up. Sculpted cakes start at $1000 and up. Cake prices start at $10/slice. Most brides choose cakes starting at $15 and up. The charge of the cake is determined by number of slices, flavors selected, shape and complexity of the design. Cupcakes start at $2.75 each and are sold by the dozen; a minimum of 3 dozen. For a complete list of dessert table items and prices, contact us.
Heather Barranco Dreamcakes serves and delivers to the metro-New York area, including New Jersey, and parts of Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Some cakes can be mailed overnight to different parts of the US.
We recommend all cakes over 2 tiers and sculpted cakes be delivered by Dreamcakes. Please note that extra charges occur for delivery.
Please be aware, there must be someone available at the delivery location to accept the cake delivery. In addition to providing us with an exact delivery address, we also require a contact phone number for the person who will be accepting delivery. Some cakes need to be assembled on site by our trained cake decorators. Heather Barranco Dreamcakes looks forward to contributing to your joyful event.
