I want to have product donated to my charity, how do I make a request?
Please send an email to, indicating the name of your organization and tax-exempt status, the date of the event, number of attendees, and product requested.  We would love to accommodate every request, but our giving is often scheduled up to one year in advance.   Many requests must therefore be deferred or denied, but all inquiries are read with interest and all organizations are given consideration.

What is fondant?
It is an edible modeling icing that is rolled out like clay and draped over a buttercream-iced cake.  It can be molded or carved into nearly any shape and can be any color of the rainbow, or chocolate-flavored.  It requires a highly skilled decorator and must be worked carefully by hand, with an artist’s touch.  It is a significant upgrade over a traditional cake because of the labor involved, but it is worth it because no other decorating technique matches its beauty and ability to reproduce three-dimensional objects.
