Wedding Cake Tasting 101

The tricky part about working in the wedding industry is that everyone is a first time client [well...almost everyone]. Planning a wedding is a daunting task in itself, not to mention the fact that it is the first and hopefully only time you will be doing it. That can be a lot of pressure! But the cake is the fun part. Picking out your wedding cake from me consists of relaxing, talking about your wedding and eating cake. Sold yet?

For a tasting with me, you get to pick up to three different cake and filling combinations. I'll make your choices into three 4" round cakes which will  provide you with enough cake to share with family and friends...unless you like cake like I do and then, well, I won't tell if you won't. Once we settle on a flavor, then we'll talk design.

I'll have a few sketches ready for you based on any information about your wedding that you provided when we scheduled the tasting. Using these as a starting point, we can work on creating a design together that is unique to your personality and wedding theme. In the next few days I'll make a final one and e-mail it to you with a price estimate. After that, we'll be in close contact until your wedding day if you need to make any changes. Here's a list of helpful hints to get the most out of your tasting and consultation:

What to Bring:
  • Wedding invitations, save the date cards, engagement announcements or anything else with a pattern or color scheme specific to your wedding theme that you may want incorporated into the cake design
  • Personal stories that reflect you and your future spouse's style and wedding concept
  • Family traditions 
  • Information regarding your caterer, venue, or wedding planner that could be of help to me
  • Pictures and ideas of what your ideal wedding cake looks like
-Cake tastings are $20.00, and applied to your final wedding cake price if you end up booking with me as a deposit to hold your date.

-Please click on the menus tab to find a sample list of flavors, but keep in mind that I can create any flavor you can think of.
