OMH Welcomes New Board Member!

OMH Welcomes New Board Member!

Bess Charles, Owner of LadyCakes Bakery 

Our Mother’s Home is excited to announce the appointment of our newest board member, Bess Charles! Bess comes to us with a passion for helping young women and a history of community involvement. Bess has called Cape Coral, FL “home” since 2005, but was raised in upstate New York, where she learned all about the ups and downs that life can deliver. Through her struggles, Bess gained strength and decided that she was going to be a success, rather than let those same hardships define her.

Currently, Bess and her husband own LadyCakes Bakery in Cape Coral and they have been blessed with a successful business and the ability to give back to the community and truly teach their own children the value of hard work and philanthropy. In 2020, Bess added published author to her resume, when her children’s book was published- The Adventures of LadyCakes: Kindness is Sweet. 

Aside from her business, Bess truly enjoys helping non-profit organizations such as PACE Center for Girls, Blue Line Bears, and March of Dimes, to name a few. Bess also sits on the Community Advisory Board of Better Together, and now, Our Mother’s Home, where she will continue to encourage, empower, and enhance those lives around her.

Our Board of Directors is comprised of a dedicated team of community leaders committed to helping us empower young mothers in the foster care and human trafficking systems to break that generational cycle for themselves and their children.

Pricing and Tasting

Pricing and Tasting

Hi There!!!  As part of our weekly wedding blog, we are talking about all things wedding cake.  We have talked about how to choose your baker, what questions to ask and when to book.. today we are talking about pricing and tasting! 

Pricing and Tasting

Contact your top 3 bakeries and ask for pricing!  Each bakery has different stipulations on pricing but here are some items that they might ask from you to provide pricing options:

          Your estimated guest count. Wedding cakes range in size and this is all based on serving size, so provide a range. 

          Your wedding date.  Different times of the year, pricing could fluctuate.

          What you are looking for.  Would you like to have all tiered wedding cake?  Cake and Cupcakes?  A dessert table with multiple options?  Be specific and provide examples. 

          Where is your wedding reception being held?  They will want to include pricing for delivery as well, if they offer that service.

Once you have decided that the pricing makes sense for you – TASTE THE CAKE!  Tasting the cake is so important before you book your baker.  Keep in mind, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!  Don’t eliminate the most expensive before you taste.  Pick your top 3 and schedule tastings. If you are fortunate enough to live near or can visit your wedding cake bakeries take advantage of it – this is the FUN PART, remember?!  Every bakery has different procedures & Specialties – so make sure you contact your top 3 and be open to suggestions!  If you don’t live near them, ask your friends or family to have the tasting for you – I’m SURE they won’t turn down free cake!!!!


Stay tuned next week for our Part V topic – DESIGN!  As always, if you have any questions, please check in with us about how we can help!
