Most couples would love to get everything off the “to do” list ASAP. Ordering your wedding cake is NOT one of them. However, we can get the process started as early as 6 months prior to the wedding date. We can finish the whole process usually 3-4 weeks before the wedding date. The reason for this is that we need to have the final RSVP count to adjust the size of the cake. Typically, we like to start the process 3 months before the wedding date so the information we talk about is still fresh in our memory. Please keep in mind that during the holidays of Easter, St. Patricks day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, we are extremely busy, so consultations are limited during these times.
The only staff members that are qualified to take a wedding order is someone from the Deising family, a manager, or one of our decorators. Most times, the Deisings work from 4 am until 2pm. One of the Deisings are in the building during those hours. Our decorators are here between 5am and 1pm. A manager is here until 4-5pm. It’s best to plan a morning appointment between 8am and 12pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, we are extremely busy making wedding cakes and celebration cakes, so typically we try to avoid doing consultations on those days. Exceptions can be made if we know we do not have too many wedding cakes for a particular weekend. Please do not be upset if we cay we cannot do a tasting on a certain day. We just want to be able to fulfill our promises to wedding couples who have entrusted us to make their wedding cake perfect.
Bring any pictures that you want, whether it be on your phone, tablet, or from a magazine. We have free wifi here at the bakery so we can look up anything. Also, if you have specific colors to apply to your cake design, then please bring a color sample/swatch for us to keep.
No, it does not cost anything. We offer you a free tasting for up to 3 people. Additional guests are 4$ per person. Samples of our cakes, icings, and fillings will be presented to you. We will review pictures and options at this time. We are a full service bakery, so feel free to pop in anytime and purchase any of our delicious cake slices.
To get answers to simple questions such as price, servings, and ideas, you can just call the store at (845) 338-7505. For a sit down tasting, we usually take about 20-30 minutes, sometimes longer.
We offer a typical size serving that you would serve at your birthday party. (about 1.5 inch by 3-4 inches). Many other venues cut them much smaller. You won’t run out of cake with Deising’s!
There are many factors that can change the price of your cake. A good average to estimate is $3.25 per guest. This includes the filling, cake, icing and most designs. You can get a beautiful wedding cake for that price. We will work with you to stay within your budget. Other additional cost may include delivery, equipment rental, and set up charges.
Tiered cakes require additional time and materials to construct so that the cake doesn’t topple down. Each tier has to be completely level and have an internal structure to secure it. It takes at least 4 to 5 times longer to build, frost and stack a tiered cake than to build a sheet or a round layer cake. Additional time is also needed for the consultation and for artwork. The more detail, colors, materials and hand work required to decorate the cake, the more time it will take; consequently, the more the cake will cost.
No. Making a fake cake takes just as long as a real cake so what’s the point if it does not save you money?
Our classic cake batters include vanilla, chocolate, marble, or a combination of any of the above. Our specialty flavors include carrot cake, black forest, *strawberry, *almond, and *lemon. Specialty batters have a small up charge from the classic batters. *means these may not be available at your tasting. Please request these before a tasting. Even then, we may not be able to offer them at your tasting because we cannot make such a small amount.
Included in your basic cake price are – vanilla custard, chocolate custard, mocha custard, lemon custard, buttercream, chocolate buttercream, mocha buttercream, maple buttercream, whipped cream. Fruit filling choices are strawberry, cherry, raspberry, apricot, apple, peach, pineapple. Many customers enjoy combining the vanilla custard with a fruit filling. Our most popular filling seems to be the strawberry with vanilla custard. At a small additional charge, we also offer canoli, fudge, rum custard, amaretto mousse, chocolate mousse, apricot mousse, cappacino mousse, banana custard (made with fresh bananas), strawberry mousse (made with fresh strawberries), fresh strawberry with either whipped cream or vanilla custard, blueberry mousse, raspberry mousse, hazelnut mousse, hazelnut butter cream, peanut butter filling, peanut butter mousse, pina colada (rum, pineapple, coconut), coconut cream, chocolate mousse with chocolate chips.
Yes, every tier can be different. However, it is important to consider how the cake will be served when making the decision about offering more than just one flavor. If the cake is being served buffet style, offer many choices and create a cake or dessert buffet. If the cake is plated and served directly to your guests, offer one choice only to ensure that guests are served quickly.
Yes. If you are using silk or fresh flowers, just drop them off the day before your wedding date. Include your name, reception hall, date so we do not mix them up with other wedding orders. The cost for these flowers are additional to you and are not included in the price. We will however put them on at not charge.
Yes, we absolutely prepare groom's cakes! The groom's cake is an old English tradition where small pieces of cake, generally dark, rich, liquor-saturated fruitcake, were boxed and given to the unmarried female guests to take home and place under their pillow. The myth promised that while sleeping with the cake under her pillow, she would dream of the man she would marry. This tradition took hold in the southern United States and has slowly migrated to the rest of the country. In the U.S., the groom's cake is usually a chocolate cake decorated to represent the groom's hobbies, career, or with a fun, contemporary design and is often the dessert served after the rehearsal dinner or displayed with the wedding cake. Check out our Groom's Cakes Gallery for some samples of Groom's Cakes that we have created.
Yes. These are called Viennese tables or European desserts. We have the largest varity of these pastries than anyone else in the Hudson Valley.

We also offer our famous butter cookies (voted best in the Hudson Valley). These can be done in a variety of different size platters to be displayed as a center piece on each table.
Yes. We offer deliveries roughly within a 40 mile radius of Kingston NY. Delivery costs vary and are based on time and mileage from mapquest. Roughly, you can estimate about 1$ per mile ROUNDTRIP. A 40 mile trip would cost 80$ plus a 25$ set up fee equaling 105$. This price can change if the roads are not highway miles. Back roads and country roads take longer to navigate, especially when driving with a wedding cake, so additional charges may apply.

You can change your order up to 3 days prior to you event. If you need to cancel your cake, you have 1 week prior to do so. There will be a 25$ charge for the consultation, tasting, and time that was needed to take and handle your order.
It depends on what you are ordering? If it is something we carry in our store on a regular basis, there is no minimum. If it is a specialty item, cupcake, or roll or some other product that are made to order or only carried during the holidays, minimum orders do apply as we sell by the batch to minimize waste.
