How do I go about ordering a wedding cake?
Wedding cakes are one of our highest priorities and can be booked as far as one year in advance. We offer cake tastings Tues, Thursday and Friday 11am-5pm hourly and Sundays 11am-1pm hourly. We can schedule your cake tasting over the phone. Our weekend delivery availability tends to fill up quickly so we recommend allowing yourself at least 6 months between the time you place an order and the day of your wedding. This gives you plenty of time to fine tune your design as your ceremony comes together and you approach your most special day.We recommend placing special orders such as these in person, and if needed, communicating minor details and changes over e-mail or phone.Schedule a cake-tasting through e-mail or give us a call.
How do I go about ordering a custom cake?
Custom cakes can make or break an event, and we are here to MAKE your event a hit! Since they are often the centerpiece of the party, a lot of care must be taken when placing the order in terms of flavors, colors, tiers,  wording, etc. That is why we allow changes to be made to orders up to 7-days prior to the pick-up date. However, space is limited so we recommend ordering at least 2 weeks before your event.We recommend placing special orders such as these in person, and if needed, communicating minor details and changes over e-mail or phone.To save a space in our daily cakes list as soon as possible, fill out our custom cake order form.Once a 50% deposit is left on the order, preparations for your creation will begin!

How do I go about ordering Persian cookies?
We have discontinued offering persian sweets on a regular basis. We can offer custom orders for 20 lb + of persian sweets, at a minimum of $20 per pound. We require notification 1-2 weeks in advance to your event. We love to put as much time into making sure your desserts are fresh, delicious, and beautiful so we recommend making any changes to an order at least 7 days prior to pick-up or delivery, so we can make the proper preparations.

Edible image cookies require 2+ weeks advance notice. Orders may be placed in person, through e-mail, or over the phone (408) 266 – 2253. Pricing varies based on quantity.

Can you match my party’s theme colors with my cake?
Though we do our best and usually come very close, Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that the colors used on your cake will be an exact match to the colors you provide.

What are the most popular flavors?
Vanilla Custard filling with any cake flavor and either icing! Vanilla Custard is the most popular cake filling at C’est Si Bon due to its creamy texture and amazing taste.

For something fruity and light, try the Hawaiian Banana Berry cake!

Truffle Filling: Chocolate cake with cocoa whipped cream filling and whipped cream icing, a light and fluffy favorite for all members of the family!

Fresh Strawberry Classic (seasonal): White cake filled with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, iced with whipped cream, a refreshingly sweet addition to any occasion.

Red Velvet: Red Velvet Cake filled with Cream Cheese, iced with buttercream – a richer cake favored by adults but always enjoyed by children in the form of cakepops!

Do I need to leave a deposit?
At the time of ordering, a 50% deposit is required to begin preparation of the cake as a confirmation that you are, in fact, serious about picking up the cake. We can take any form of payment in person and will safely guard your credit card information over the phone.

Do you make eggless, gluten free, dairy free or sugar free cakes?
Though we have offered these options in the past, we regret to inform our customers that we can no longer
provide such cakes.

Do you make Smash Cakes?
Smash cakes are mini cakes made especially for the birthday boy/girl that match the main cake of the party. They come in 2 sizes: 4” and 6”, and are usually filled with either buttercream or vanilla custard. For orders over $200, we offer smash cakes as a complimentary gift to the birthday person! Otherwise, a 4” costs $10 and a 6” costs $15.

Can I change my order?
The answer depends on what you had ordered and how many days’ notice we receive. The best thing you can do is call the bakery and let us know what you had in mind. Chances are, if there are at least 7-10 days remaining, we can change it for you!

How much does a cake cost?
Before we can honestly answer that question,

  • we need some more information:TALL or Sheet cake?
  • How many people do you need to feed?
  • Will you be having Fondant icing or Whipped Cream/Buttercream icing?
  • Which filling do you wish to have?
  • Do you want an edible image placed on the cake?
  • What decoration do you have in mind?
  • When do you need the cake by?

Once we have a pretty good idea of what you have in mind, we will be able to give you a price quote much closer to the actual amount you will be paying.Take a look at our Decoration Price page for prices on our most popular decorations.

For most accurate pricing, stop by the store and bring your ideas and reference pictures and we will be happy to help you fit your cake into your budget! Or send us an e-mail with all the above information, and we will do the best we can to write back within 24 hours.

Can we do a cake tasting?
A cake tasting includes a sample of 4 cake flavors, one drink, and a 25 minute consultation with one of our staff members. They are reserved for wedding clients and events of over 80 guests. However, anyone can request to taste the fillings we offer anytime! And a member of our staff will stay available for you for as long as you need to finalize a cake order. For cake-tastings, we encourage that you call ahead of make an appointment to make sure everything is prepared for you when you walk in.  (408) 266 – 2253

What is fondant?
Fondant is the smooth, almost flawless icing seen on many traditional wedding cakes that is rolled and draped over a cake. It gives a cake a smooth, professional appearance, keeps the cake moist longer, and provides a
distinctive flavor and texture. At C’est Si Bon, we use Satin Ice pre-made fondant due the difficult nature of preparing and making it in-house. Ask any staff member for a sample!

What’s the difference between buttercream and whipped cream?
Buttercream is a rich butter based sweet cream that can, for the most part, hold its shape when necessary. That is why buttercream is used to ice a cake that will be covered in fondant or even decorated with fondant figurines and items. Buttercream can sit out for many hours without trouble and is recommended for wedding cakes or outdoor events. We also use buttercream to ice cupcakes as it holds color much better than whipped cream.Whipped cream is a sweet dairy based cream that is much softer and lighter than buttercream. Cakes iced in whipped cream cannot support fondant decoration and must be refrigerated up until 30 minutes prior to serving.Both can support edible images, licensed decorations, as well as buttercream decoration.
Ask any staff member for a sample of either!

Can I borrow a cake stand?
We offer silver cake stands both square and round in many sizes. For a fee of $35, we rent stands out for 3 days at a time, and hold on to a $200 cash deposit until the cake stand is returned. If for any reason more time is needed with the cake stand, let us know and we will be happy to work out a new agreement.

How much does delivery cost?
The initial delivery charge is $50. Then, for every mile we must travel away from the bakery, there is an additional $2 charge. Our delivery service is mainly reserved for wedding cakes which usually involve setting up the cake and the table it sits on.This price is non-negotiable.

What is your Cancellation Policy?
Cancelling an order more than 30 days before the pick-up date can get you a 50% refund of your deposit. However, most of us do not plan cancellations that far in advance. For any deposit you have left on your order, we can offer store credit or a deterred pick-up date for any cancellations made less than 30 days before pick-up time.
