  • How do I work with you? How do I submit an order?
    To get started, please fill out the Quote Request form on the "Order" page. Be as detailed as possible! I love to come up with designs that are tailored to you/your theme/your venue. Color preferences are extremely helpful. I'll contact you within a few days with a quote or follow up questions to help me put together a quote. I'll also provide next steps on payment and delivery. For cakes: I will provide a preliminary sketch for you to approve or give feedback on. You can also opt to give me creative freedom and I'll come up with something to surprise you with!
  • Where are you located?
    North Star Bakery is currently a home-based operation in the Saint Paul area. We are registered as a MN Cottage food producer (#20231837) and take great care to maintain a sanitary environment. These products are homemade and not subject to state inspection.
  • How far in advance do I need to order?
    The sooner the better to ensure we have the availability, but at least 2 weeks in advance is appreciated. Orders requested within 1 week of the date may incur additional fees.
  • Do you deliver? Is there a delivery fee?
    Yes, we deliver to the greater Twin Cities area! Delivery fees vary based on distance, typically $5-20. For a reduced fee, we can meet clients part-way at a coffee shop or other business.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Orders cancelled more than a week out will get most or all of the deposit/payment back (depending on how much time and prep has gone into the project up to that point). Orders cancelled within a week of the event will forfeit the deposit/payment.
  • Can I order vegan or gluten-free cakes?
    I am unable to offer vegan cakes at this time, as I've found vegan butter compromises the smooth texture and quality of decoration that I hold myself to. I am, however, able to offer some gluten-free cakes, but they are made in the same kitchen and with the same tools as non-GF cakes. I am unable to guarantee there won't be cross-contamination with gluten in this environment, though I do my absolute best to prevent this.
  • How do I know what size cake to order?
    Approximate servings are as follows: 6" 3-layered cake: Serves up to 8 6" 4-layered cake: Serves up to 12 8" 3-layered cake: Serves up to 24 Feel free to include a note in the Quote Request Form with the number of guests, and I can offer a recommendation!
