I like literally just got off the phone with them! 😀

Our cake baker is included with the venue package, so we’ve technically been “booked” with them for a year already.

I just made our tasting/designing meeting for June 2nd – exactly 2 months before the wedding. So excited

Ooo I just booked my tasting too!  Ours is relatively soon though, on March 9th!  I probably wouldn’t have thought to schedule it so soon, except our event coordinator recommended that we book soon if we wanted to go on Saturday, plus the more things out of the way now the better.

We had our tasting almost a year ago! The lady we picked books over a year in advance. There aren’t too many in our area and she has delicious cakes, fabulous designs, and competitve prices. I tried it at a bridal show and knew she would be the right one so we booked right away!

We picked 2 flavors- pink champagne with a seedless raspberry jam and maple cake with a maple buttercream filling.

Date twinn!!! =D Im doint a test cake in june ( im making it myself) But i use to work in a cake shop, and id suggest doing it asap. It was hard turning people away because they didnt book intime and honestly the mid august was the busiest time of year. We had 15 cakes for one weekend. And if youve ever attempted to do one 3 tiered cake..you’ll know what im talking about. So Id start looking and decide what youd like by at least the end of march. Alot of people book a full year in advanced.

We’re having our caterer do our desserts – I’m not even sure what we’ll get, maybe a combo of cupcakes, pies, cobblers?  She’s an amazing cook so whatever it is will be tasty.  I do want to get a small cake to cut, too.  Or maybe just cut a cupcake?  

Hmm, obviously I have put very little thought into this.  Mostly I just want something (anything! A pie or whatever) to put our adorable cake topper on.

This is one of the things I neeeeed to do!  I asked when my first choice are open for tasting, though, and it is like, crazy short hours and mostly during the week.  And all my weekends are filling up!  Too much to do…  But I need to make time for cake!

@elysion:  What bakery are you going through?

We found a bakery and did our tasting in December.  Picked the design and colors, except for one band–ended up solving the issue with paint cards.

We did it to check it off the list, and we have a Saturday wedding at the busiest time of the year.

We’ve already tasted & booked! We sampled from this particular baker at a bridal show in August, and couldn’t find anyone we liked better, so we decided to make it a done deal.

@Orchd12:  Lezza (http://lezza.com/) – they’re the bakery that’s included in our Brookfield Zoo wedding package.  Their reviews that I’ve found online are pretty good, though!

Our first cake tasting is in March. This will be our 2nd but with a different baker. The first experience was terrible and the cake was awful so I finally found someone else. Were doing a mini cake for us to cut, and then cupcakes in various flavours for our guests.

We did it at the beginning of January so decisions have been made and we’re booked!

I would book soon! We just started reaserching bakeries, and some of the best ones are sold out for our wedding date. Hard to belive, but I am glad we jumped on this when we did.  We have a tasting booked March 7.
