Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and thank you for considering the Chocolate Moose for your special day! We know planning a wedding can be exciting, but organizing the details and logistics can be stressful. We want to make your day, and the months leading up to it, as sweet as possible!
how we work together
We love working with brides and grooms and we’re honored to be considered as a vendor for your wedding. We typically start the process by inviting you to schedule a complimentary cupcake tasting and consultation. During the tasting, which includes about 4 regular cupcakes from our flavors offered that day, we will discuss the details of your wedding and map out an initial order based on quantities and flavor preferences.
Following the tasting, a member of our team will create and e-mail to you a proposal with pricing, information on delivery, set-up, and tier rental, as well as our recommendations for serving and storage of cupcakes. We know how hectic wedding planning can be, so we like to have an electronic communication for your records and for ours. When you are ready to finalize your order, we ask for a credit card number to confirm the order (which we will take over the phone). We’ll then call or email to check in the week before your wedding to go over final details and confirm payment. On the day of your order, we bake your cupcakes, box them up, run your credit card, and deliver to your wedding venue. Please note that wedding orders can be picked up, but we recommend delivery by our team so we can ensure the safety and proper set-up of the cupcakes!
complimentary tasting & consultation
The purpose of the tasting is to help you familiarize yourself with our product and determine if our bakery is a good fit for your wedding. Because we bake cupcakes fresh daily according to a set seasonal schedule, we are not able to provide or bake samples of flavors not offered on the day of your tasting. While we will start to determine the quantity and flavor selection for your wedding, you are not obligated to finalize your order at the time of your tasting. Your order is considered official once you have provided a credit card number to hold your date.
gluten free & vegan tasting
We offer one gluten free cupcake flavor each day, and many of our icing flavors are gluten free. For vegan options, we always have a chocolate cake available, and at least one vegan icing flavor. For gluten free or vegan tastings, we will happily provide you with up to three un-iced cupcakes, as well as any available icings to “mix & match.” If you would like to taste an additional flavor, you can come back on a day that the flavor is available, or we can bake another flavor for a fee of $20 (of which you would taste 6 total cupcakes).
pricing & delivery
Our delivery fee for large orders (around six dozen or more) starts at $20 for downtown deliveries.
We have a selection of large cupcake tiers and displays available for a $40 rental fee, and will share pictures with you at the time of your tasting or when you officially place your order. All displays must be returned within 48 hours of your event to avoid an additional charge.
We accept cash or credit cards as payment, and require a credit card on file to hold your order. One week before your wedding, we will charge your credit card a $50 fee to confirm that it is an active card and that we have no issues running it. This allows us to address payment problems in advance, and helps us avoid calling you on the day of your wedding if you have an old or inactive card on file.
On the day of your wedding, we will charge your card the full remaining amount of your order and send you an email receipt. Note: We are not able to make deliveries if the order has not been paid in full.
