call local bakerys for tastings and make sure you have pictures of what you think you want, also dicuss how much it is per person,( they do by slice) if they charge extra for delivery,

 

we went to three tastings before we finalized a baker, then we went back and forth about how the cake should look. one bakery wouldnt do what we wanted- square bottom with three round tiers on top plus they were rude so we nixed them off the get go.

Definitely schedule tastings with a few different bakers and then choose who you want after you have tried a few. There are a lot of good bakers, and some well, not so good.

As to budget and questions, I’d just ask the baker before you go about how it works (i.e. can you ask other questions or is it only a taste testing and you need to get a separate consultation). Generally they’ll be more than happy to work with you … they are working for your business;)

My baker asked me to send her samples of what I had in mind and gave me a pricing quote.  We scheduled a tasting and narrowed down the flavor and design of the cake.  I made several changes to the design of the cake throughout the process, but made sure that the pricing was similar.  It ended up being just a little more.  We weren’t booked until we made the deposit for the cake.
