Wedding Cake Tastings
I love meeting with couples who are drawn to my design style and are excited to get started designing their dream wedding cake!
Your private wedding cake tasting is designed to be a fun and relaxed atmosphere for you to sample my cakes, explore design possibilities, and get a feel for what it will be like to work together.
We'll start with the obvious: You'll sample a selection of my most popular wedding cake flavors and choose the perfect combination for your wedding day.
At my studio, I bake all of my cakes fresh (never frozen!) and from scratch using the highest quality ingredients. All cakes feature my signature meringue-based buttercream, a light and silky frosting that has proven to surprise and delight even the harshest cake critics!
Next, we'll generate ideas for your wedding cake design by discussing the colors, styles, and themes that will be present at your wedding. You're welcome to bring color swatches or stationary, maybe you've had a wedding monogram designed... If it's something you may want incorporated into your cake design, bring it! Do you have a Pinterest board full of wedding cakes you love? We'll look at that too. It's helpful for me to soak in the styles and themes that you're drawn to so that I can make suggestions appropriate to your taste and wedding style.
Finally, we'll start sketching initial ideas on paper so you can begin to see your cake take form! You can see here a few of my favorite "sketch to sugar" comparisons.
Elegant craftsmanship and sugar artistry, thousands of hours of experience, and a highly personal level of service. My cakes are a piece of art that will act as a focal point, a conversation piece, and a memorable aspect of your event. You won't be disappointed!
I've shared my 2018 pricing guidelines below for your reference. However, since each design is customized to suit a particular couple and their wedding style, please note that final pricing will be determined following your tasting and design consultation.
Tiered cakes start at $8 per slice. Average pricing is between $9-12 per serving and varies according to size and style.
SMALL CAKES & DESSERT TABLES
Centerpiece cakes of 1-2 tiers with additional servings for your guests (whether cupcakes, cake shooters, or kitchen cakes) average between $5-7 per slice.
To reserve your wedding cake, I require a $500 non-refundable deposit and a signed contract. We can take care of this at your tasting, if you're ready. Please note that in order to provide a high quality of service to my clients, I only accept 1-3 wedding cakes per weekend. Dates are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't delay!
