Ordering and Pricing


Cotton is dedicated to creating lovely cakes for delightful clients like you. Being a small, custom cake & dessert boutique, Cotton schedules a limited number of custom orders per week. Great care goes into each cake from the first steps (baking the cake, making buttercreams, making fillings) to the final steps (decorating, delivering and set up).

Working closely with each client is a must to ensure the cake is personalized with their unique style, taste and inspirational theme. Personalized details may include sugar flowers to match bridal bouquets, beautiful lace patterns to match the bride’s gown or an elegant script from the bridal couple’s invitations.

Each completed custom tiered cake is patiently driven, delivered and set-up to locations throughout, but not limited to, the DC Metropolitan area. Delivery prices start at $40 and vary depending on the location of the venue.


A 33% retainer fee accompanied with your signed proposal/agreement is necessary to retain our services and secure your date on our calendar. Final payment is due 14 days prior to your event date. However, orders placed less than 14 days to your event date requires full payment.

Custom Wedding Cake:

Our wedding cakes include 3 layers, 2 fillings and an Italian meringue buttercream finish with a simple Swiss dot design and ribbon around the base of each cake tier. Prices start at $4.50 per slice. For complex designs, prices vary dependant on the complexity of the design, which will determine the final cost. Complex designs include, but not limited to, sugar flowers, hand-painted cakes, intricate piping work, carved cakes, edible monograms, mosaic design and sugar gems. Minimum order: 75 guests.

Custom Tiered Celebratory Cakes:

Our celebratory cakes are priced per person with a minimum of 30 servings. Minimum order: $175. Our celebratory cakes are unique designs, so the final cost will vary based on intricacy of design, labor, size and cake flavor.

Cake Tastings:

Tasting appointments are scheduled Thursdays, after our business hours, between 5pm-7pm. Before scheduling your tasting, we will contact you via phone to gather all necessary details and send a time sensitive invoice to your inbox. Once the satisfied invoice is received, your tasting date will be confirmed. Finally, a proposal will be put together for you and presented at the tasting session.
The 45-60 minute session include 4 flavors, of your choice, from our tasting menu and are enough for 2 to share. Please feel free to bring invitation samples, swatches and inspiration cake photos. Tastings are $40 per couple and $20 per additional guest (up to 4 in total). Tasting fees are a separate fee for a specific service and are non-transferrable.

Our private tastings are exclusive to wedding cake orders only. However, special event cake orders (with a minimum of 75 guests) can be scheduled. For smaller event cake orders requiring a tasting, we offer 6” tasting cakes to serve 8-10 guests. Prices start at $35 and may be picked up at our Hyattsville or National Harbor office.
