I’m Candis Spivey, the proud owner of Honeybee Cake Company, and have been in the wedding industry for a few years. I also create bespoke cakes for other events like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc.
I haven’t always been a cake designer. After being in corporate America for years, I decided I needed to do something that I was passionate about. I’ve always been creative and enjoyed being hands on, but I struggled to find my true passion. It wasn’t until I created a cake for a friend that I realized I had a knack for cake design. After fine tuning my talent with some schooling, I formed an LLC and decided to take this adventure full time.
My favorite part is curating pieces of the wedding, seeing inspiration photos, physically drawing out a unique cake that I envision, then bringing it to life.
It was actually a little challenging to get into the wedding industry. It felt similar to looking for a new job when they require experience, but you can’t get the experience unless you have someone that’s willing to take a chance on you. I’m so grateful for my first bride and will always cherish their big day.

Your cake should be a reflection of your taste and style, find a baker that understands that and invites you to taste their product prior to booking.
You will know you’re in good hands with a baker if they aren’t just asking you to send a photo of something you saw on Pinterest so they can book you and move on to the next couple. You want someone who will take the time to learn about your wedding, your vision, and will ask questions until you’re both satisfied that they have a clear understanding of what you’re looking for. Someone that appreciates the hard work that you are putting into your wedding and is willing to do the same.

If I really had to pick one thing, it would be to have a designated place indoors for the cake. Cakes can melt so it’s best to plan for it to be set up a nice cool spot on a sturdy table.

This is a difficult question. Personally, I don’t charge extra for a wedding cake versus a birthday cake, my pricing is the same across the board and I calculate pricing based on the number of servings.
You can expect to pay between $4.15-$10 a serving. Cost depends on how intricate the design, distance for delivery, etc.
I think this question goes back to finding a good baker. If you provide things like your colors, floral design, and give an overall flow for your wedding, a really good wedding baker should have no problem coming up with some options on design.
Butter cake. All day. Being from the south, it’s a traditional cake flavor that I grew up with. It actually melts in your mouth. You really don’t need frosting, but if I had to put a frosting with it, I’d stick with my traditional whipped chocolate buttercream. It tastes like chocolate ice cream but in a light and airy frosting form.
I could go on for days answering this question. In short, I am a huge Sylvia Weinstock fan. If you haven’t seen her cakes, give her a quick google. Her work is absolutely amazing and she’s incredible with sugar art. She does a lot of celebrity weddings. I can also relate to her because she will never cover a cake with fondant and only uses buttercream. All of her work is remarkable. There is also a viral video floating around where the wedding cake is so big that the bride and groom are actually inside the cake on a “cake balcony.” I’d really like to know how much butter that baker used. Also, I’d like to add that any cake that is so big that the bride and groom slice it with a sword, that’s pretty cool too.
Funny you should ask! I had to improvise on a cake for the first time this past weekend. I created a buttercream birthday cake that had a smooth color that looked like a sky. Unfortunately, after delivery, the cake was bumped and there was a very obvious knick in the frosting right in front! I had to act calmly and quickly but I was able to turn that little knick into a super adorable wispy cloud in about 30 seconds. You honestly couldn’t tell that it wasn’t a part of the cake design from the beginning.
The challenge is knowing what questions to ask to make sure I truly understand my client’s vision. Once I have that picture in my head, it’s typically smooth sailing.
Fortunately, I’ve had nothing but awesome couples and their requests have been completely reasonable. The challenge is knowing what questions to ask to make sure I truly understand my client’s vision. Once I have that picture in my head, it’s typically smooth sailing.
