Country Girl Cakes cares a lot about the quality of our cakes - to ensure that, we limit the number of cakes that we take every week. Celebration cakes, such as birthdays, anniversaries and showers, are best to book at least 2-3 weeks in advance and Wedding Cakes are best to book 6-9 months in advance to ensure availability. With that being said, it doesn't hurt to call to see if we might have a last minute space available! Please call or email to confirm availability.
Yes, all wedding cakes and cakes over $300.00 require a 50% deposit at the time of booking to secure the date on our calender.
Country Girl Cakes provides private consultations and tastings for every wedding cake and cake ordered over $300.00.
Consultations are available by appointment only, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9am-11am and 5pm-8pm. Please call or email to arrange. As we have many weekend events to prepare cakes for, we are unable to accommodate Friday and Saturday requests for consultations.
Country Girl Cakes typically schedules 5-6 cakes per weekend, with no more than 2 weddings. We want to ensure the quality of the cake, rather than the quantities of cakes.
All of our cakes are custom designed for each individual client. With that being said, please feel free to bring pictures with you that you have found inspiration in for your consultation, and we can design a cake based on that picture.
Cakes are baked/iced/decorated all within 1-2 days of the event depending on how busy we are that particular weekend.
Not all flowers and greenery are safe to use on a cake. Fresh flowers should NEVER be inserted into your cake. With that being said, Country Girl Cakes will contact the florist to discuss the arrangement of the flowers on the cake if you provide us with the contact information. However, your florist is responsible for all arranging on the cake.
Yes, we offer delivery and in fact, we prefer to deliver your cake. Delivery is calculated according to mileage based upon the physical address of the delivery site and driving route of mapquest.com; some locations may have a flat rate. Our typical delivery area includes Cornwall, Ottawa, and Kingston with all areas in between; however, we have delivered a number of times to Orleans, Toronto, and even Waterloo!

The kitchen is a very busy place. We’re constantly working on something sweet and exciting. We do not have a computer in our kitchen and may not be able to respond to your email right away. Please remember that, just like your cake will be our number one priority the week of your event, someone elses cake is our number one priority right now. The end of the week tends to be our busiest time. If you have emailed or called Thursday on please note that we will most likely not be able to get back to you until Monday.
