1. What is Fondant Frosting?

Fondant frosting is a sugar dough that is applied to the surface of a cake to make it very smooth, almost porcelain like. It does go over the buttercream frosting, so that if your guests do not prefer the fondant, they can simply peel it back and eat the frosting underneath. We offer wedding cakes in both buttercream and fondant frostings, and we recommend that you sample both if you come in for a cake tasting.

If you bring us a picture of a cake done in fondant, but want it to look like buttercream, please keep in mind it will not look the same. The only way to achieve a flawless finish is through using fondant. Buttercream will show spatula marks, and air bubbles, and is also affected by heat and humidity. If you choose a buttercream wedding cake for the summer months, it must be placed in a venue that has a cool, air conditioned enviroment. We do not do buttercream wedding cakes for outdoor weddings. We typically do not do gumpaste or sugar flowers on buttecream wedding cakes, fresh flowers only.

2. What is the best day to place a custom order?

If you are looking to spend time designing the cake with a salesperson, Tuesdays-Thursdays are the best days to stop in. For your convenience, you can call over the phone to place your order. You can also visit our website www.brummiyummies.com to request a quote.

3. How do I place an order?

We take cake orders at our Hazlehurst location only, and you can order over the phone or in person. We have a trained sales staff that will be happy to assist you with your order. You can also visit our website www.brummiyummies.com to receive a quote.

We suggest AT LEAST 1-2 weeks notice on any custom cake order, and at least 1 month on any wedding cake order. We require as much notice as possible on any cake requiring artwork, or and sculpted cakes. We are a very small shop and often book up very quickly. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit on any custom order placed as long as the order is placed a week in advance. 100% is required if you order the cake within seven days of pick-up. We accept cash, checks(when order is placed 2 weeks ahead or longer) or all major credit cards including Discover and American Express.

4. How far in advance should I place my cake order?

Please order cakes for summer months as soon as possible!

Because of the time and love that go into our cakes, it is best to reserve your date as soon as possible. We are a small shop that can only take so many custom orders, so we often book up for custom cakes weeks ahead of time.

We do offer styrofoam cakes, but they are the same cost as a traditional wedding cake.
