Frequently asked questions
How do I book an event?
Events can only be booked in person or over the phone. We do not accept bookings via email. Please stop in the Kara Kakes storefront or give us a call during business hours. Kindly have payment ready as we require a $100 non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. We will also need a signed party contract submitted by the booking adult.
Is it ever too early to book my party?
No! We recommend booking an event 2-3 months in advance. We often have dates booked up to 6 months out. The earlier the better!
What information do I need to know at booking?
We will need to know your desired date, party package, and add-on's (if selected). We will also collect basic contact information at the time of booking. Please provide an updated email address and phone number.
Why do I need to make an appointment to see the Studio?
The Kake Studio is in high demand! We have events scheduled every day of the week, and do not show the room while events are in progress, or for one hour before or after scheduled events. The Studio is also in a separate part of our shopping center, and not directly connected to Kara Kakes. At times, our staff members may not be able to leave the storefront to bring you to our Studio. Please call to make an appointment to see the space!
What is important to tell guests/parents/guardians who are attending my event?
Please make all guests/parents/guardians aware of the folllowing:
What is the minimum age requirement?
We require that all guests be at least 5 years old at the time of the event.
How many guests can I invite?
Our Studio can host a maximum of 25 children. Please remember that parties of 15 children or more are mandatory drop-off only events (except for birthday child's immediate family). Overall, we must stay under our maximum capacity of 35 people in The Studio - this number includes adults, siblings, and staff.
Can I add on extra time to my party for gifts/personal time?
Yes! We have the options of adding on a much time as you would like before or after your event. To rent our room, we apply a $50 charge per half hour. Please note that in some circumstances, extra time will not be available due to other scheduled events. Room rentals must be finalized no later than 1 week prior to your event. Time allotted for room rental is not staffed.
What is the "personal cake" included in some packages?
Our 4-inch cake is a special treat just for the birthday child. All children will decorate one (1) fondant piece to stick on the cake, which is then used to sing Happy Birthday to. This cake is intended to be taken home, and is not cut or served at our events.
