Cake Ordering Guidelines

Thank you for allowing Simply Sweet to be a part of your upcoming special celebration. You may place your order in person or by phone: (540) 786-7584. Please DO NOT email or fax cake orders.

We create our cakes according to your specific instructions. To make ordering as easy and as convenient as possible, we have implemented the following guidelines:

  • Allow a minimum of 48 hours for a basic cake (spray of flowers and message)
  • Allow a minimum of 1 week for a themed cake
  • Allow a minimum of 2 weeks for a specialty cake

It’s never too early to place an order. Dates book up fast!

For simple cake designs, order by phone

When ordering by phone, please have your credit card information ready. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required when placing your order. For your security, the credit card MUST be presented when the cake is picked up.

Specialized cakes are best ordered in-person

Please order in-person if you would like to have a cake with a specific picture, theme, or color (swatch required). We will need to see a picture and/or theme to give you an artwork quote (Copyright laws are applicable).

Please call ahead, to schedule a wedding cake consultation.

Inclement Weather

We cannot control the weather; therefore, we will have your cake ready for pickup on the day that you requested. In the event of snow, our parking lot will be plowed, and access to our store will not be a problem. If you need to make any changes, cancellations, or postponements, please note that we require a minimum 48 hour notification. Should your event need to be postponed or cancelled at the last minute, we will be happy to give you freezing instructions. We DO NOT have freezer capacity to store your cake beyond the pick-up date.

A minimum of 48 hours is required for any changes, postponements or cancellations.
