Yes! *Temporarily. We’re moving to a commercial location in Hamtramck, and will reopen shortly – this spring. Check our Instagram for all shop opening updates!

You can still reserve summer/fall 2024 wedding dates via the Weddings header, here on the site.

All design options and customizations are listed here on our website, meaning if it’s not listed on the site – we do not offer it. Venla’s does not produce items such as fondant work, sculptures, characters, etc. We feel that sticking to our niche allows us to provide the most beautiful and intentional products possible.

We do not offer cupcakes.

Generally your cake should be placed in refrigeration. Remove your cake from the fridge, to room temperature – a good few hours before consumption. This will allow the buttercream to become soft for eating. A Venla’s cake eats well for up to four days when stored correctly. 

The above instructions apply for vegan cakes too!

Yes! Head to our main Menu and find “Weddings” – where you can fill out a form to receive more information. 

We are fully committed to supporting the LGBTQ+ community as a wedding vendor.

Venla’s accepts the following forms of payment: Venmo, PayPal, and Square (this includes Credit/Debit, Google Pay, Apple Pay, and Cash App.) Payment details will be provided to you in a follow-up email, after your order has been placed. You will then have 72 hours to provide payment – failure to do so will result in cancellation of the order. 

Yes! Our vegan cakes are created entirely of vegan products, down to the sprinkles. We do stress that this option cannot be labeled as free of the dairy allergen, simply because our vegan ingredients may be stored with non-vegan ingredients.

Hanna, here! Venla was my grandmother (my dad’s mom). Venla is a Finnish name. She was born in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in 1928. She raised five sons and one daughter, was considered legally blind from a young age – and therefore couldn’t drive. Venla didn’t make cake. However, her plant collection always thrived. She was never concerned with being “proper”. Venla passed some years ago, and had no idea that I would ever make cake in her name. 

We currently do not ship our cakes.
