Are you an allergy free facility?

Although we take every precaution we are not an allergy-free facility. Our products may contain or come into contact with milk, wheat, nuts, soy, and other allergens. You agree to notify your guests of this risk and hold us harmless for allergic reactions.

Will my cake look EXACTLY like the picture?

Although we will do everything to accommodate your vision, keep in mind that everything is custom made and no two cakes will ever be the same.
At Violette Bakehouse we do not recreate the work of other cake designers.  If you have pictures that you'd like us to use for inspiration, we will stay within the same design and come up with a design that is entirely yours.
We also reserve the right to exercise artistic license and make last-minute changes if necessary to guarantee the structural, visual, and creative integrity of the cake or dessert.

How much are cake tastings, and what do they entail?

Cake tastings can be scheduled prior to making initial deposit. Tasting are available for orders of $300 and up. You will choose between 2 cakes flavor and 3 filling flavors of your choice for $30. That amount is non-refundable but will be deducted from your final cost if an order is placed within 1 week. Email us at violettebakehouse@gmail.com to get started.

How do I schedule a tasting?

Tastings are not held at our location. Once you’ve selected your flavors from our flavor list, you or a representative will pick up the samples from our location and are free to enjoy with friends and family. This eliminates the pressure of having to make a decision right away. Once you’ve decided on a flavor, please contact us and we will move forward with the order. If you should need to reschedule or cancel, we ask that you contact us no later than 1 week in advance.
