a few things to know
What are your hours?
Hours are by appointment only and definitely not on powder days.
Where are you located?
We currently do not have a storefront. Everything is made to order and can be either delivered or picked up by appointment at Mammoth Rock N Bowl, 3029 Chateau Rd.
Do you offer wedding cake tastings?
Yes! Once your date & venue are contracted, we offer a tasting for two people with up to three cake flavors for $50. Want to try more? It's just $10 for each additional flavor and/or person. Please note that during holidays and the height of wedding season (May-October) weekend tastings may not be possible.
When should I order my cake?
We operate on a first-come, first-served basis & suggest reserving your wedding date at least 6-12 months in advance. Our schedule fills up quickly, especially during the height of wedding season (May-October). We will do our best to accommodate last minute orders if the schedule allows. To reserve your wedding date, we require a 50% non-refundable retainer which goes towards your final balance.
Parties & Special Events
We operate on a first-come, first-served basis & suggest placing your order 3-4 weeks in advance. We will do our best to accommodate last minute orders if our schedule allows.
I'd like to have a smaller cake plus a dessert bar, how much should I order?
When people are doing a dessert bar in addition to a cake for cutting or display, I usually recommend 2-3 pieces of dessert per guest since you'll have some people that will have 1 thing and some people that will have 4. So as a starting point, I suggest guest count times 2.5, or for 100 people, 250 pieces of dessert. From there I recommend 3-4 options. You're certainly welcome to choose more, I just recommend increasing the quantity since the more choices you give people, the more they usually want to try!
Do you provide cake stands and display pieces?
Yes! For weddings, the rental of cake pedestals, wood rounds, wood crates, platters, and other display items is included with delivery. However, it is your responsibility to return all rental items to Mountain Cakery within 48 hours of your event. It is important that all items are returned by the due date, as we have to get them ready for the next event. If all rentals items are not returned within 48 hours, the credit card on file will be charged $150 per item. If Mountain Cakery must retrieve your items without prior arrangements being made, a pick-up fee equivalent to two times your delivery fee will be charged to the card on file.
Do you deliver?
Yes! Mountain Cakery will deliver and set-up for your wedding. Delivery within the town limits of Mammoth Lakes starts at $150. All deliveries requiring chairlifts, gondolas, snowcats, snowmobiles, skis, boats, special access roads, etc. and outside of Mammoth Lakes will be quoted accordingly. All cakes will be delivered and set up prior to the start of the reception unless otherwise notified. The delivery and set-up fee includes the rental of display pieces.
What is your payment policy and what type of payments do you accept?
We accept cash, check and all major credit cards. Checks can be made out to Mountain Cakery and mailed to PO Box 1336 Mammoth Lakes, 93546.
We require a 50% non-refundable retainer to save your date. Your final payment will be due 14 days prior to your wedding.
