Fiance and I are probably going with my aunt who offered to make our cake but we are not sure yet. What is your bakery? I’d like to find a few spots with a free tasting since we may or may not go with a certian bakery and want to look at 2 or 3. What bakery are you using? is there another you would suggest that has a free tasting? Thanks for all you help!

Where in Ohio are you, if you don’t mind me asking?

If you’re in Southwest Ohio, check out The Bonbonerie in Cincinnati/Reading area. They have free tastings (you have to schedule them though, no drop-ins) and their cakes are deeeelicious. That’s who we’re going with. You can always scout out a few online and call to ask about their tasting fees, etc.

I know some good places in the Toledo area, but that’s not really helpful if you’re in Cleveland or Cinci.

If you’re in the Cleveland area, I can recommend mine to you : )

If you are in Columbus we are using Sauer Cakes, Michelle is awesome and for our 3 tier, cake with 3 different flavors and fillings it is only $450!! Thats a steal compared to the other places we looked at. The cake tasting was fun and yummy and she loved the design that Fiance and I drew up together! 🙂 I cant wait to see the final product!!

I’m in the Cincinnati area too. Can provide recommendations if you’re nearby.
And hey, great job ladies. Looks like we have a lot of the major cities/surrounding areas covered!

We used Anita Kline in Hilliard. She does beautiful work for very reasonable prices. And her cake is the most delicious that we tried! We had a 4-tier cake with sugar flowers and 3 flavor/filling combinations for $380.

We did a dessert buffet, but we got cheesecakes from Sweetheart USA (Northfield). Their cheesecakes are soooo good. I’ve also had a few of their cakes at Aladdins (they’re Aladdin’s supplier), and I remember them being yummy, but I can’t recommend their decorating skills on wedding cakes, as I don’t have any experience there. I do know that they were really flexible, and the baker I spoke to was super friendly & helpful.
ETA: I would *not* recommend White Flower Cake Shoppe in Beachwood. They have beautiful cakes & they taste delicious (I’m pretty sure they’ve been featured on a few baking shows), but my sister had a terrible time working with them. They kept changing the quote & pulling all these shananigans with her, she was really upset, and she spent a fortune.

We are looking at
Servatii (very popular in Cincinnati, limited tasting times though, have to call for times)
Busken (they only do small cakes and then a large sheet cake)
Fiance is voting for Servatii and I think we’ll end up with them. We’re kind of obsessed with them anyway. But I don’t think you could do wrong with any of these three. They all know weddings and their stuff is incredible. Every Saturday morning we do donughts/pastries from one of these places for breakfast!
