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 try 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 9pm 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 is $50 in Grand Rapids.
What do the rental standS look like?
Our stand is a white stand with 9 round tiers plus a base. It is 4.5 feet tall and holds about 150 cupcakes. If more space is needed, we can arrange the remaining cupcakes around on the table surrounding the stand, or you may provide smaller cake stands or height.
What do I need to provide?
A cake table with linens, and flavor signs, if desired. We would be happy to provide the cupcake descriptions if you would like them for your 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 a 50% deposit reserves your date. The remaining balance is due one week before the event and will be adjusted according to your final count.
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 which you can pay online or take payment over the phone This option is an additional 3.75% of your total.
