What to Expect at Your Tasting
During your tasting, you will meet with one of the owners - Paul or Anna, or our head decorator, Nina. Consultations usually last about 30 to 45 minutes for cakes and 45 minutes to an hour for cakes & desserts. For the tasting, please be sure to bring any color swatches and ideas you already have in mind for your wedding day. If you have already booked your venue, we will likely be able to share details of what setup for your wedding will entail.
Our complimentary tasting includes all nine standard cake flavors. For couples looking for cupcakes, you'll get an idea of flavors through our cake samples. For those looking for desserts, (once you select a tasting location) please choose the dessert sample option under "What Would You Like To Sample." We provide (in addition to cake samples) a cream puff, tartlet, a blondie, and a brownie. These dessert types will give you an idea of the shells used for desserts, and the mousse cream filling in the cake samples will give you a good sense of flavor options for the desserts.
