Wedding FAQ

We suggest an appointment approx. 4-5 months prior to your Wedding. We do NOT except Wedding Cake appointments more then 5 months in advance unless it is a unique situation like Military. Simply call us at 215-773-9779 and we will gladly help you. Our Consultations are free for venues that include our cakes however there is a $25 fee for those venues that do not use us. During the consultation we offer cake samples and all information! Our sample choices and we do not guarantee specific flavors. If you would like to sample Red Velvet, Carrot Cake, Gluten Free or any other flavor besides Pound Cake you will have to purchase these in advance by ordering it. You're given a 45 minute time slot for your appointment. If you are more then 10 minutes late we ask you to reschedule your appointment as we truly work on a tight time schedule. If there is an unforeseen situation and we can not make your appointment we will call you as soon as possible to reschedule.

We have an updated cake consultation room that houses a table for 4 people, displays and all information you need.

Please bring ornaments to your venue for them to place on your Wedding Cake when it is delivered. We are not responsible for Cake Toppers and you are placing on your cake at risk of damage.

Most Buttercream Iced cakes are included in Catering Packages however there may be limitations. All options, upgrades, etc. will be gone over with someone at your venue or when you come in for your appointment. Only Pound Cake flavors are included in Catering Packages. Flavors such as Red Velvet, Carrot Cake and Gluten Free are not included in Catering Packages nor are they available for free to sample at your appointment. Each one of the venues that Lochel’s Bakery provides Wedding Cakes for does have a copy of Wedding Cake album with information in it and we encourage you to look through it to be prepared with some knowledge!
We have a ton of pound cake flavors! Our Wedding Cakes are always Pound Cakes but we do offer Red Velvet, Carrot Cake and Gluten Free. Our Gluten Free Cakes come in Vanilla or Chocolate. If you’re looking for a flavor not listed please ask us for it as we will make every attempt for special flavors. Our traditional Buttercream is available in White or Ivory & most colors.
Ribbon on cakes does darken so we do not advise on using an extremely dark color like Navy, Eggplant or Wine, etc…. We prefer to use a Gros Grain Ribbon on our Buttercream Iced Wedding Cakes in a 7/8″ size. We do have a ribbon chart at the bakery with available colors we offer. Some Buttercreams such as Navy, Eggplant, Plum, etc… darken, so when adding color to your cake please keep this in mind. Some colors also lighten such as Pale Pink, Lavendar, Peach, Pale Yellow, etc.. please keep in mind as well. We do offer Silver and Gold coloring that we can go over at your appt. We do offer Rhinestone/Crystal Ribbon plus a ton more that we will go over with you!
