Weddings & Special Events

As Unique as You


Tart + Tin specializes in custom edible works of art.  Impress your guests with any of our wide variety of cakes and small bites.  Each item is fully customizable to suit the needs of your event.   


Alexis loves to work closely with her clients to construct their dream wedding cake and dessert accessories.  Styling, budget and guest count are all discussed in length to ensure all is exactly as it should be on your big day.  From the design consult to the moment you take a bite on your wedding day, Tart + Tin is here to work alongside you with every detail.


The Process

1.  To avoid disappointment, once you have a date set it is best to contact us right away to reserve your spot.  The best way to reach Alexis is email at  Your event date and location, budget and flavor options will be discussed.  A cake tasting appointment is scheduled.


2.  We meet and go over design details while you taste a selection of different cake flavors.  Four mini cakes, serving 4-6 are offered at this appointment in case you'd like to share this experience with a few friends and/or family.  There is a $60 fee for this appointment.  If additional flavors or other menu items are requested for consideration, a $10 per item fee will be added.  Cake flavors are finalized, a rough sketch is reviewed and signed off on, and a non-refundable deposit of $100.00 is paid to reserve your date.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, in-person tastings are currently on hold. We are instead offering cake tasting box pick ups, one Sunday per month. Each box is $40 and comes with 4 flavors of your choice from our menu. In addition, we are offering to ship tastings overnight through USPS on the Monday that coincides with the tasting box pick up date. Shipping charges vary according to location. 

3.  Two months prior to your wedding date, 50% of your total cost is due.  This can be paid via check, cash or Venmo to Alexis Barry.


4.  Two weeks prior to your wedding, the remaining balance is due, payable by check, cash or Venmo to Alexis Barry.  


5.  Depending on the contract details, we will make arrangements to drop off your cake to the location given and make sure it is picture ready.  Its as easy as that!
