Have fun! I just went to a tasting where they recommended picking two flavors, but no more. That way people at least have an option, but weren’t overwhelmed 🙂

We had ours last week. Bringing the pictures along is a good idea. We opted for sugar flowers instead of fresh, not sure what chemicals might leech onto our cake. We picked a different flavor for each tier. Plus have fun!

Don’t feel obligated to finish every sample you are given. I did and started feeling sick from

insane amounts of sugar

@maybride53114:  Both places we went for our cake tastings gave us samples we could bring home. We got to talk about what we liked and didn’t like at home instead of infront of the bakers. It was nice because the first cake place we went to it just didn’t do anything for us. We got cupcakes at the first place and cut them up into tiny pieces to share among the 5 of us (fiance, his parents, his brother and I) and than the second place which we ended up going with gave us cupcakes and pieces of cake cake which cut up between the 5 of us again and it was much better. We had fun at home but got all the questions outta the way at the bakery. Make sure to ask about delivery, show them pics of what you want, make sure to ask about rental of cakestands if you want one, ask about fake tiers and sheet cakes (sometimes it makes it cheaper if you are trying to stick to a certain budget) but make sure all and all you enjoy it! We had fun!

We picked three flavors for four tiers – they were too good! I think it will be fine. I really don’t worry about guests being confused by 3 flavor choices. We are going to set them out on a table with signs. If we were doing table service of the cake, I do think keeping it to two flavors would be best. Don’t try to finish each sample. If you have enough, save a bite of your favorite flavor combos to compare at the end. Also, ask for your baker’s combo recommendations, but don’t be bound by them, I liked some combos the baker did not suggest. Eat light beforehand, and be prepared to only want salad after, it A LOT of sugar! And mostly, enjoy!

@maybride53114:  If you want vanillia don’t taste everything else lol 


my friend had me to 3 cake tastings and choice was vanillia at the end of the day lol i was annoyed lol 


try different things like mango and rasberry with cream cheese icing and a swril of white chocolate (that was the best thing i ever tasted ever) 


don’t worry about pleasing everyone there likely will be other sweets so if someoen does not care for rasberrys or something you don’t need ot worry unless they are the groom lol 


but ya just try random things u have not b4 and go with something different unless teh classic fav like a redvevelt is out of this world to amazing not ot pick b.c. its fun to be different and have ppl be shocked with new flavors they have never had 


maybe also do different flavors on different teirs if you cant pick 


good luck and enjoy the cake
