Yep, that’s what we did. Although depending on the place, they may charge you a small fee to try different flavours. Most places that we went to didn’t though.

Not sure.  I haven’t been to many cake tastings so it depends on the baker/bakery. First tasting was an unofficial tasting and it wasn’t charged.  Second tasting I bought a slice of cake to decide if I wanted to hire him (and I did the cake was really good). I am sure if I had said I wanted to taste his cake he would have allowed me to to get my business but I wasn’t sure i woudl hire him.

The other bakery I had in mind, my fmil got the cake fro my son’s b-day so I went in and got some info from them.

I think for many bakers in the wedding industry, they do a free tasting, so all you have to do is call and set up an appointment (they know you need to see/taste a variey before you book so there usually is no pressure).

Some do charge, but will credit it towards your cake if they do, but you shold ask.

Definitely call and make an appointment.  We skipped the ones that charged because, honestly, we are about to drop a grand you can give me free cake for my business!

I would recommend taking notes too.  I printed up a cake tasting sheet that we filled out at each bakery.  Things tend to blend together eating that much cake.  We did 3 in one day!

Agree with pp, some do charge.  We only had a tasting with one bakery (the one we bought our cake from).  For Darling Husband and I to taste, it was free.  I believe for each additional person it was $5.

When I called to set up the tasting, they asked if I was interested in trying any specific flavors so that they could make sure they had those available.  I belive we tried 6-7 different kinds.  It was delicious 🙂

I did three cake tastings and we weren’t charged at any of them. I agree that you should take notes!  Definitely call to set up an appointment.
