Frequently Asked Questions...

What does a Create-a-Cake party include?  The basic package ncludes: *A custom decorated theme cake to serve at the party ~ 8 individual 6” round cakes, placed on a cake board, ready to be “created”.  ~  White icing plus frosting in 4 colors of your choice to decorate with. ~ Basic tools needed for the artists to create their “Edible Art” (all tools are to be returned to me before I leave the party). ~ 8 disposable aprons ~  Boxes for the artists to take their creations home to show off! and Approx. 30 minutes of basic decorating instructions and help given.  Other packages are available (see below).

 

Where are these parties held? I will come to you! Most people plan these parties in their own home. I am glad to come to most any location for the party. We will need a place for each child to sit at a table and to be able to pass and share the frosting colors and tips (an add-on items if requested). Also, an available sink (for clean-up) is needed. There is no charge for travel in Harlingen or San Benito. Other locations may incur a travel expense.

Are decorating CAKES the only option?   There are a few other options:  you may choose to create cupcakes or cookies.  Another option is my brand new "Create-A-Cookie-Cake" party.  Pricing is the same as the regular cake party.  Contact me for details.

 

May Create-a-Cake be done with any themed birthday party?  Absolutely!  Because you are responsible for the decorations and partyware, you may use any party theme like.  As a part of the package, you get to choose a *custom decorated cake to be served at the party.  Also, because you have a choice of colors and decorations used, their cake creations can also be incorporated into any theme.

 

Will you attend the party and give instructions?   Yes!  As part of the package I will attend the party and give up to 30 minutes of instructions and tips, and help the children create their very own cakes. 

 

What decorating techniques will be taught?  I will show them how to make stars, drop flowers, rosettes, leaves, simple borders and writing.  For older children, I can even show them how to make a few simple flowers like roses, mums and daisies. 

 

May Create-a-Cake be done with young children?  The minimum age for a Create-a-Cake party is 8 years old.  At this age children are fairly independent, but still require one-on-one attention and a little help.

 

How do I reserve my party?  I must have at least 2 weeks notice with a 50% (non-refundable) deposit to hold your party date.  Please contact me by e-mail at mycakesandmore@yahoo.com or through my Contact Page on this website. 

 

Special Note:  One additional adult "helper" is needed for every 10 children in attendance. (If any of the children attending are younger than age 8, an additional adult helper is required to assist that child.)

 

***Create-a Cake is not just for children!  ~ Create-a-Cake is a fun and creative way to learn the simple basics of cake decorating while spending time with friends.  Whether it's a church youth group, girl scout troop, a group of moms or just a great group of friends, I love to work with teenagers and adults to teach them basic cake decorating skills and let them make their own cake to take home to share with family or friends.  Of course with older teenagers and adults I am able to really teach them some skills and have even known people over the years who have decided to pursue the sugar arts even further.  Please contact me for details on setting up a cake decorating party for your next get-together!
