Frequently Asked Questions
What's the meaning behind your name?
I chose the name Honey & Salt Cake Co. because serving God and bringing Him glory in everything I do is the standard to which I live. The Bible speaks in many places of honey, that it was used to nourish people, as a description for the great land where God was sending His people, as something that our words should be as sweet as. Likewise, salt is also mentioned in the Bible as something to season our words with, in that it shows people your devotion to Christ and also your love for them; it is also spoken of as something that without everything else is void of taste. I want to always show grace, kindness, and the abundant love I've received from Christ's death and resurrection to others, and these words from His Word were the two that stuck out to me the most when I determined to rename my business.
How far in advance should I order?
We limit the number of orders taken each week in order to focus on each cake individually. We ask for a month's notice for celebration cakes and at least 6 month's notice for larger wedding cakes. We try to accommodate in shorter notice if we have availability. Get in touch and let's talk!
Do you offer keto, gluten free, or other special diet cakes?
We do not cater to any specialty diets at Honey & Salt at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Do you offer cupcakes or decorated cookies?
We prefer to focus on whole cakes at Honey & Salt, so we do not offer cupcakes or custom sugar cookies. We are glad to send you to some amazing local vendors who do both of those things exquisitely.
We do offer French macarons.
Do you offer sheet cakes?
We do not offer sheet cakes, but we do offer undecorated "kitchen cakes" for weddings to accommodate the number of servings needed.
Do you offer custom flavors?
Is payment due when I order?
For all cakes, there is a 50% non-refundable deposit due to secure your date. Without this deposit, your cake does not go onto the calendar.
The rest is due two week's prior to the date for celebration cakes and one month prior to the date for wedding cakes.
The joy of running a small batch cakery is that yes! If there's a flavor you're thinking of that isn't on our menu, or a flavor from childhood you love, or perhaps something from your heritage that is special to you, just let us know and we can create it for you.
Do you offer tastings and consultations?
Can you replicate a cake exactly?
At Honey & Salt, we pride ourselves on completely custom, one-of-a-kind cakes, so, no we won't replicate a cake. But we absolutely can take your photos as inspiration and make something spectacular that is just for you!
We reserve cake tastings and consultations for wedding clients only. Read more about the wedding cake process here.
