Such a lovely wedding filled weekend! Travelled way out of the local area for this one, all the way to my old stomping grounds in Old Town Alexandria. Always makes me feel amazing when a couple chooses me over the plethora of wonderful DC cake makers! This three tier beauty is perfect for a small wedding of 50 or less.

Happy Indigenous People’s Day! What better way to spend the day than ordering your Thanksgiving treats? My Thanksgiving Menu is officially live! Check out my website now to place your order.

www.dunnfromscratch.com/thanksgiving

1) The only items available for preorder on Thanksgiving week will be the items on this menu. I will not be taking custom orders, including cakes.

2) Payment will be required within 24 hours of receiving your invoice or your order will be canceled.

3) Orders MUST be picked up the same day for which they were purchased. Any orders left remaining at the end of the day will be subject to resale. This is because, unfortunately, we had people in the past purchasing items for a Monday pickup but then not showing up until Wednesday. Please do not attempt to do this.

4) I will have a waitlist again and, of course, a flash sale, for any extra goodies!

I always love sharing this fun fact about German Chocolate Cake. It actually has nothing to do with the country! German is the last name of a man who invented a type of sweet chocolate and so this cake was named after him as a tribute. It was originally called German’s Chocolate Cake. This has been a segment of “now you know.”

Some friendly reminders as we get closer to fall!

1) Thanksgiving week orders will only be accepted after the launch of my Thanksgiving menu, in early October. Please do not submit any “early” orders before this time as they will not be accepted.

2) Only the items listed on my Thanksgiving Menu will be accepted for the week of Thanksgiving. I will not be taking any custom orders, including cakes.

3) Any Thanksgiving Week invoices left unpaid after 24 hours will be voided due to high demand.

4)I will incorporate a waitlist again this year for any orders made after cut off.

Them: “wow you charge a lot for cheesecake…Cheesecake Factory has slices for $7”

Me: “That’s awesome! Enjoy their cheesecake”

Rule number 1 when talking to a small business owner: don’t compare them to mass produced big business products. I guarantee you we will not feel shaken down to lower our pricing or our worth. Dunn From Scratch cheesecakes are just one of my specialities that make me unique! I’m proud to be me!
