Our cake is included with our venue however this year (we booked June 2010) they changed the vendor for the cake. The previous one was AWESOME! We were so excited to have a cake by them. We went to the open house last thursday met the new vendor and tasted 3 flavors chocolate, white, and marble. They were awful. I noticed no one was finishing the cake. I am so scared now that when we go to the actually cake tasting we aren’t going to like it. If we don’t use the cake we only get $300 credit back to our venue however that means we can only add 4 more guest to the list and probably have to get a cake from somewhere else that we just don’t have the money for. Ahhhh I think I am going to lose my hair over this. 🙁

Lol oh no! What a bummer, yeah I hear you, who would have thought something none more than a cake would make you want to tear your hair out and shoot up the place.
I went this past weekend to design my cake and taste the flavors and I thought it was going to be fun and I was so excited, but nope just the opposite. Our vendor told me that I had to go and buy my own ribbon because they didn’t have the shade of purple I requested. PURPLE!!! its one of the most popular colors of the year, why doesn’t the vendor restock her cake ribbon??? Mmmhmmm because she wants the customers to stock it for her. Totally annoying. :/

That does suck… but in the long run it’s just cake. Most people are too busy dancing to eat it anyway. Of course you want everything in your wedding to be perfect, but life just isn’t that lucky. If you have the money, you could buy a grocery store cake, those are usually very yummy and inexpensive. If not, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. No sense worrying about things you can’t control!

If their cake was that bad at the tasting, don’t serve it. Explain to the venue that the cake was truly inedible and that you would much prefer for them to serve a dessert from their regular menu instead. A cake is nice but not required.

True, Now that I think about it I wish we just decided to do a dessert too, because our cake was $400!!!! FOR A CAKE! Ridiculous expense. I wish I could reverse it, but too far into the game to do so and we wouldn’t get our deposit back. a Cup Cake tier is nice and you could probably DIY.

How many people are you needing cake for? I could recommend my cake bakers if you’re interested, they are both in Houston.
