So you're hosting a party...
Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions we have prepared to help you out. If your question is not answered here please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can be sure you feel confident to host a party on your special day at our studio. We want your party to go smooth and be stress free so let us know how we can help you!
What time should I show up for the party? - You can arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your party and stay 15 minutes after so that you can greet everyone and say goodbye.
Will we have the studio to ourselves? - Our studio can accommodate up to 30 guests so there is a possibility that other customers will be in the studio during your party. But don't worry, your party will have a big table designated just for you and your guests. If you book at least 20 guests, or select the "Shut It Down" option on the party form, you will absolutely have exclusive use of the space.
Will there be instruction during the party? - Depends on which package you have chosen. For Classic Creations or Cake Battles, studio hostesses will give a tour of the studio and the tools to everyone. These parties are designed to be DIY so we encourage you to be creative and experiment with all of our fun tools. If you do have a question, studio hostesses will try to assist in the best way they can. If you need some inspiration we have a lot of dummy cakes and cupcakes for viewing around the studio as well as idea books. You can also ask a studio hostess if an IPAD is available to look on Pinterest. If you have chosen the Instructor Led Party Package then yes, instruction will be given and techniques will be taught based on the cupcakes or cake you have chosen for your party. Majority of the cupcakes and cakes in our Instructor Led Party Package can be alternated and customized with different colors and details as you and your friends decorate.
Can I bring food to the party? - Absolutely! There is even a Pizza Hut, Subway, and Safeway conveniently located in our parking plaza. Each party package includes one extra table for gifts/food. You can also put food out on the decorating table or rent an additional table.
Can I bring drinks to the party? - If you want. Parties do include soda and juice. We also have a water fountain with cups for everyone as well. We also have our beer and wine license so no BYOB allowed. We sell local beers and wine by the glass or bottle. And yes, we have mimosas too. And yes, you must be 21 and show us an ID.
Do I need to bring forks, plates, napkins, candles? - We got that all covered! One of our studio hostesses will even light the candles and cut the cake for you.
Why is there a charge for non - decorating guests? - Since our studio is small we have to charge for non - decorating guests at parties (the first 2 are included) since we will have to potentially turn away other customers to accommodate the space. So sorry for any inconvenience. There is a Starbucks in Safeway if non - decorating guests would like to hang out there.
When do I need to give a final head count by? - Our suggestion is aim high. We would rather have too much prepared then too little. You will only be charged the day of for how many show up. If the reservation increases, we need to know at least 72 hours in advance so we have time to jump in the kitchen to prepare.
Do I need to bring decorations? - Nah. Our studio is pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. Parties will include balloon bouquets and the honored guest's name on the front chalkboard. That being said, you are welcome to bring decorations for your table. Please be mindful of the fact that other guests may be in the studio so you can't decorate other tables or hang things from our ceiling.
Can we bring outside entertainment? - Sorry, no. There may be other guests in the studio so we don't want to disturb them even though Elsa and Ana sing beautifully.
What if one of my guest's is Gluten Free? - We got you covered! Let us know ahead of time if you are planning a cake party so we can be sure to prepare one. We always have GF cupcakes prepared fresh. When we cut the big cake for everyone to eat, we would be more than happy to provide an extra GF cupcake on us for your guest so they don't feel left out.
What if one of my guest's has a peanut or tree nut allergy? - Got you covered there too! We are a peanut and tree nut free facility.
Our party pricing just a bit out of budget? - There are several ways you can cut back on our party pricing. Check out our Team Cake Wars party for 8 people, only $325. We have a Weekday Cupcake Special for $270 if you choose Classic Creations Cupcakes any time Tuesday - Thursday or Friday before 4pm. If you don't want the whole party package, you can absolutely customize your own large group reservation as well which allows you to fit a reservation within your budget.
What if I have more questions? - Please email us at email@example.com and we would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have!
