Cakes, Elevated provides bespoke wedding and celebration custom cakes throughout the state of Colorado.
Cakes, Elevated is a private, home-based cake studio located in beautiful Peyton, Colorado. We are honored to serve the Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Black Forest, Monument, Larkspur, Security/Widefield, Fountain, Woodland Park, Pueblo, Denver, and surrounding areas.
We only use the highest quality ingredients in our cakes. We do not use preservatives in any of our cakes. While these quality products do cost more, it ensures that you, our clients, will enjoy each and every bite of our cakes.
All of our fillings, ganaches, and caramels are made from scratch, in-house, fresh for your order. We do not use shortening in our buttercreams – only delicious sweet cream butter.
Industry standard cake servings for cutting and serving cakes are 1″ wide x 2″ deep and 4″ tall. Our cakes are taller than industry sized standards, usually between 5- 5.5″ in height per tier. (This means more cake per person, yum!) We provide a cutting guide for your event to ensure that your cake is properly cut and served.
Placing an Order

To provide you with the best possible customer experience, we limit the number of bookings we take. We highly recommend that you book your event early in order to avoid disappointment. Most of our wedding couples book six to eight months in advance, while most celebration cake clients book about one to two months in advance.
A retainer is required for all orders. A retainer payment will confirm your order and reserve the necessary time and supplies to complete your order. Availability is not guaranteed without payment.
Wedding cake orders have a $300 retainer. Payment plans are available, and the full balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding date. All celebration cake orders must be booked at least 3 weeks in advance with a 50% retainer, and the full amount is due 1 week prior to the event date.
We design and create our cakes especially for you, so we price each and every order individually. Prices depend on the number of flavors chosen, the size/number of servings, the complexity of the design, the cost of extra decorations such as flowers, figures, etc.
In general, buttercream cakes start at $6.00/serving, and fondant cakes start at $7.00/serving. Most wedding cakes fall between $8.00-$10.00/serving, but can go up to $12.00/serving or more, depending on design.
Groom’s cakes ordered in addition to a wedding cake have a $150 minimum.

When you receive your proposal via email, you will be able to easily pay after signing the contract. The contract and payment are mobile-friendly. Payments are through Stripe and are secure.
We are happy to accept personal checks for orders booked more than three months in advance. However, should your check bounce, we charge a $50 fee and the full payment of the order is then due up front.
Receiving Your Order
All wedding cakes are subject to delivery – pick up is not available. We happily deliver and set up all over the state of Colorado. For celebration cakes, pick-up may be available. All cakes over two tiers require delivery.
Delivery fees are determined by distance from our location in Peyton to your event venue.
Consultations / Tastings
Consultations and tastings are available for wedding clients only. Wedding cake consultations are $40, and can accommodate up to four people (the happy couple plus up to two guests). Consultations are held by appointment only typically on the first Sunday of each month. Monday evening appointments the day after a regular tasting date may also be available. Please contact Chelsea to book your consultation.
During your consultation you will meet personally with Chelsea Busa. The consultation is the perfect setting for you to share your design ideas for your wedding cake. We encourage you to bring pictures, sketches, samples of fabrics and color swatches that represent your ideal style and vision for your big day.
When you choose to proceed with a custom wedding cake design, a $300 deposit will be required to begin the design process and secure your date. Based on your wishes and her creative vision, Chelsea will proceed to develop a unique design. Once the design is finalized, Chelsea will be ready to bring your cake to life!
Destination Weddings: We cater to a number of destination couples, who may not be available to come for an in-person tasting. In this case, we do have a shipped tasting box option. The cost is our standard tasting fee, plus the cost of shipping. Destination weddings are couples who are getting married in Colorado but live elsewhere.
