Frequently Asked Questions
Can I set up a tasting?
We do not conduct formal tastings as we are a walk in shop. Feel free to stop by anytime to pick up a selection of the days flavors, or submit requests. Requests are first come, first serve; contact us for your date.
Which flavors can I choose?
The flavor list is located at thesaltedcupcake.com/menu. We do not custom decorate, but you are welcome to pick any flavors you can dream up and they will be beautifully decorated according to flavor.
How many flavors can I choose?
Brides typically choose 3-5 flavors, but you are welcome to pick as many or few as you would like!
How many should I order?
We recommend one cupcake per person. The cupcakes are very rich and filling, and although some people may try more than one, others may not like sweets, be full from dinner, etc. so one per person is a good estimate.
Do you provide cutting cakes?
We only make cupcakes but can forward you the name of someone who does make cakes. It is also very cute to cut into cupcakes for the ceremonious first picture!
Do you deliver?
Delivery, stand rental, set up, and stand retrieval is all $150 in Grand Rapids. It is a 4pm stand drop off and following day stand pick up so indicate on your contract if your event requires adjustments. If you’d just like your order dropped off with no set up or stand rental, delivery through a company that will just drop off your cupcake boxes is $50.
What do the rental standS look like?
The small stand holds about 40 cupcakes. The large stand holds about 140 cupcakes. Cupcakes look great placed around the stand on the table if you have more cupcakes!
What do I need to provide?
A cake table with linens, and flavor signs, if desired. We do not provide cupcake/flavor signs.
When do I need to pick my flavors?
You may fill out the contract at any time, but flavor selections need not be made until a month before your event.
What is the pricing?
Pricing is according to quantity regardless of which kind of cupcakes were ordered. This quantity times the price per quantity plus the delivery fee equals your total balance.
How do I reserve my date?
Signing the contract and paying the full balance ($3.25 per cupcakes plus delivery fee if desired) reserves your date. We will not hold your date until the event is paid up and contract submitted. Final cupcake count is due two weeks before event. You may pay extra or obtain a refund for your final count at that time.
Can I write a Check?
Checks are preferred! Drop off at our store or mail them to The Salted Cupcake, 2481 32nd Street SE, Kentwood, Michigan 49512.
We can also email you an invoice or take payment over the phone. A 3.75% invoice fee will be charged for phone or emailed invoice payments.
