Weddings & Special Events
At Cowboy David's Special Order Bakery we believe deeply that for your special day, your special event, you should have desserts that are not just lovely to look at but even more importantly, amazing to eat!
That is why we don't do fondant or edible photographs. There are places that specialize in that type of dessert. We specialize in tasty treats that are, well, just that- incredible, like-no-other tasty treats.
One-of-a-kind works of art that taste amazing!!!
No event is too large or too small. We look forward to the opportunity to discussing with you how we can make your special day the magical event that it deserves to be. We await your call or email...

What about Cowboy David's Bakery suggested timelines?
*Right off the bat, it is never too early to start planning, and locking in details, for your special day! Since we are a small batch, custom (licensed and inspected) baking operation we can only do so many events on a given weekend.
*To lock in a wedding date we take a non-refundable $250.00 deposit.
*To lock in your wedding "order," we increase that deposit to 50% of the wedding total with us when you approve of the final "plan." Your plan is preferred at least three to six months before your date. (That allows us to schedule everything needed for your event as well as what time is available that day for other events to be scheduled.)
*Final event numbers (exact cake sizes, exact number of cupcakes, etc...) are locked down 30 days before your event. Plans can be "tweaked" but cannot be substantially altered within 6 months of your date. That means, that, yes, we can increase the number of your cupcakes by a couple dozen or so, but, no, we cannot take your order from two sheet cakes, eight dozen cupcakes, and a three-tiered focal point cake down to just a cutting cake. Call us for further clarification if needed.
*Once a date is locked down for you, no refunds are available.
*We humbly request a moment, before moving forward, to discuss Cowboy David's Bakery's "policy" on exclusivity:
Cowboy David's Bakery is a licensed, inspected, and insured facility. We work hard for food safety and have earned a reputation for flavor and design excellence over the years. We use amazing ingredients and, no, we are not "the same" as buying from a big box superstore OR from your sister's friend's cousin who makes treats out of their kitchen "on the side." Though we do not pass judgement on those opportunities, we know, and our hundreds and hundreds of clients would agree, that we are "special." We are "the best" as many of them will attest to. We hope that is why you are considering us.
So, what do we mean by exclusivity? Simply put, if we make it, we supply it. We appreciate that you may be considering a focal point cake from us. But if you plan to do cupcakes or a sheet cake or cookies, as well, we must discuss it. We offer those products and, first & foremost, we want to make sure that the treats you serve your guests are safe. Food safety is a detailed & exacting process. We are experts. Secondly, our reputation is at stake if, in order to save a buck or two, you may be considering the purchase of cupcakes from that superstore. Your guests don't know that that is what you have done. We don't suspect that you will be making some big announcements to that effect. And those cupcakes will not be the "same as Cowboy David's." Not by a long shot. Conversely, if you'd like to FEATURE items from two bakeries, let us work together with you and with them and promote the fact to your guests. We love working with other baking artists in the region!
Please, let us discuss your plans and we will do everything we can to work things out with you. If we are blind-sided when we arrive at your event, there may be financial repercussions, especially if there has been a food safety violation that we could be confusedly held responsible for or our marketing team has to go into overdrive to correct a social media storm confusing someone else's products for our own. Let's work together.
Folks, it is 2022. Whoever thought that making a cake would be a radical, political statement.
At Cowboy David's Special Order Bakery, we feel strongly that we must make one at this time.
WE BAKE FOR EVERYONE. Straight, gay, black, white, yellow, or purple with sprinkles on top.
We love diversity and welcome all to have a piece of cake!
*Except poopie people. We put love into everything we do and love don't jive with poopie! :)
