Frequently Asked Questions
If there were "Frequently Asked Questions" about cake, these might be among them:
- Why cake?
- Do you deliver?
If you're somewhat local, yes!
- Do you ship?
No. You'll have to come to New Hampshire.
- Do you do wedding cakes?
YES, and cupcakes are a definite YES! However, my cakes are more whimsically "floral" than "formal", which is not for everyone. I do not work with fondant or artificial colors, both of which are commonly found in traditional tiered wedding cakes.
If you are a lover of natural beauty and are striving for wedding cake or wedding cupcakes that serve up excellence for quality and taste, in addition to being naturally elegant and appealing to the eye, I'd be happy to speak with you about creating a cake or cupcakes for your special day!
- Are your flowers edible / food safe?
Yes. However, that doesn't mean that all "edible" flowers taste good (unlike the cake, which always tastes good), so use your own judgement when considering whether or not you choose to eat the flowers. They are really on your cake or cupcake as a decoration. During the growing season, most herbs and flowers used come from my home garden and are organically grown. In my personal opinion, if you're looking to eat flowers, those are the ones you'd want to try- food-safe and untreated. During the non-growing season, flowers & herbs are purchased, and although non-poisonous / food-safe varieties are used, they may have been chemically fertilized / treated prior to landing in my kitchen.
- Is there a special ingredient that makes your cakes and other goodies so special?
- What is it?
- Are the items on this website the only goods you offer?
No. One of the nice things about being human is flexibility. If you're looking for something else, let me know what it is and I'll let you know if I can accommodate your desires.
- How much time do you need to prepare my order?
As much as you're able to give me, so I can work it into the day and give your treat the love and intention you deserve! A week's notice is super-appreciated, although I can sometimes work it on pretty short notice, too!
- What methods of payment do you accept?
Cash or check made payable to "Samantha Cleveland"
- Where are you located?
Kearsarge Cakes goods are made in a residential kitchen in North Sutton, NH.
