Your wedding is one of the most meaningful, life-changing days of your life.
At Alaina’s Bakery, I’m dedicated to making your wedding day sweeter without emptying your bank account!
My years of experience in the cake decorating industry have prepared me to bring your vision to life. Tell me what you want for your dream wedding cake and I can make it happen. I know everything on your wedding day must be perfect, and that’s why I put all my time, expertise, and care into crafting the wedding cake you will remember for the rest of your life!
Do you love the look of fondant but hate that taste and not to mention, the cost?
Enjoy your whole cake without compromising on the look! I use delicious Buttercream icing on all the wedding cakes I produce and can replicate any design you put in front of me. Not only does fondant take more time to make, but it also takes more time to decorate with fondant. I am able to offer affordable wedding cake prices because I use Buttercream icing, but I’m also still capable of creating beautiful, intricate designs with delicious Buttercream icing that will satisfy the sweet tooth of every guest!
Are you saving the top tier of the wedding cake for your one year anniversary?
Surely you’ve heard of the top tier tradition, right? Many couples will save the top tier of their wedding cake, freeze it, and eat it again on their one year anniversary. The only downside? When you’re counting the number of servings your cake must be, you cannot count the top tier. Let’s say you only need a three tier cake, but if you plan to save that top tier, then you need to add another tier. To solve this problem, I will create a 6 inch cake on your one year anniversary that is a replication of your wedding cake for free. All you have to do? Just remind me!
As long as you remind me one month in advance, I will replicate your wedding cake in a 6 inch cake at no charge for your first wedding anniversary. That way you aren’t paying extra for more cake and you can still enjoy that anniversary tradition!
Do you want to taste the wedding cake prior to booking Alaina’s Bakery?
Alaina’s Bakery is a one-woman show and, because of this, it’s not easy for me to produce 6 – 10 different flavored cakes for you to taste test. I want you to be ecstatic about your wedding cake, which is why I will offer a wedding cake tasting. But because it takes a lot of time, I do charge a fee for a wedding cake tastings. If you plan to feed more than 250 guests at your wedding, the cake tasting fee of $50 will be subtracted from the final cost of your wedding cake. Usually I suggest that future brides purchase one of my birthday cakes for an upcoming event to test a flavor before deciding because this is more cost efficient for them.

Alaina’s Bakery Wedding Cake Process
We can either meet in person or discuss your wedding cake over the phone for your initial consultation. During this meeting, I will gather all the details I need including your wedding date, your specifications for the wedding cake, whether you want a groom’s cake, etc. I will also collect a 50% deposit on your wedding cake during the initial consultation so you can secure your spot! This deposit is refundable up to three weeks before the date of your wedding.
Two weeks prior to the wedding we reconnect to go over your wedding cake specifications once again. During this consultation we go over your preferences for the look and taste of the cake. In addition, we can go over inspirational photos or sketches you supply so I have everything I need to create the delicious and elegant wedding cake you’ve been imagining for years!
The day before your wedding I bake your wedding cake, let it cool, then freeze it for half an hour to prevent the crumbs from getting into the icing. While your wedding cake is in the freezer, I will make the Buttercream icing for your cake. Once the half hour is over, I will ice your wedding cake and refreeze each tier. Finally, I will stack the tiers, decorate your wedding cake to bring your vision to life, put it in a box, and freeze overnight for delivery.
I do offer delivery for your wedding cake on your wedding day. I charge a small delivery cost, which is $0.75 per mile from 638 Malone Way, Wilkesboro, NC 28697. If your cake is over three tiers then I require delivery. The setup fee is $25 and there is a $1.00 per mile delivery cost from 638 Malone Way, Wilkesboro, NC 28697.
