Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer tastings?
Of course! How are you supposed to order a cake if you don’t know what it tastes like? We will sit down for 45 minutes to an hour to discuss your big day and design something unique to you as a couple. Tastings are $40 and include your consultation and choice of 3 cake samples.
Do you have a retail storefront?
INK does not have a retail storefront. All cakes are custom made to order and consultations are by appointment only in Northeast Minneapolis.
Do you deliver?
Yes! We prefer to deliver and set up cakes as it can be tricky depending on size and design. Plus, it’s one less thing you have to think about! Delivery within the Twin Cities is free and deliveries outside of these limits are based upon miles roundtrip and time for driving and set up (hourly).
What’s your payment policy?
Once we have met and discussed design, we require a non-refundable 25% down and a signed contract to lock your order in on the calendar. Payment must be made in full 2 weeks before your event.
What if I have dietary restrictions?
Unfortunately, due to our shared kitchen space we cannot guarantee your order’s safety from cross-contamination of serious allergies— like nuts. We do partner with Sift Gluten Free to provide gluten free cakes that can be decorated here at INK!
Can I rent a cake stand from you?
Yes! We have a variety of cake stands that can be rented for a small fee. It makes it easier for us to make sure the cake stand is sized correctly and you don’t have to worry about finding the right one!
How far in advance should I order?
This is a tricky question. The further in advance— the better! Some weekends/months book up 8-12 months in advanced while others can be booked 4-6 weeks in advance. It really is a gamble to wait so we recommend you reach out to us immediately if you are interested in our cake services.
