@WeddingWonder:  Mexican here, but no tasting option either, so I feel your pain.

Ha ha..I feel your pain. In Jamaica, the traditional wedding cake is black cake or fruitcake (not to be confused with the fruitcake in the USA). It is only just becoming more acceptable to use other plain cakes and we have new bakeries willing to give you great flavour combinations but nothing near what is in the USA and most bakeriesdo not do tasting. You simply go by word of mouth or buy a slice of cake and try it before buying…lol

No tasting for us either because of our Destination Wedding. But everyone liked our cake so that was nice! πŸ™‚

I am from NSW, and I have found the local bakeries don’t really have a great range of cakes.

But I have found there is a large market of people that make all sorts of yummy cakes from home.

One of the girls I work with actually makes gorgeous cakes as a hobby.  And I know a few of stay at home mums that do cakes on the side as well.

My suggestion would be to start trawling facebook, google, the local paper.  Maybe even ask around other wedding industry businesses to see if they have recommendations.  There must be someone near you.

Yes!! But it’s not just the cake tasting, what about flowers / bouquets delivered to you at a fraction of the cost?? Or affordable bridesmaid dresses…OR etsy sellers who charge a limb to post out to us…..!!??

@WeddingWonder:  You should contact Cake Boss and tell them your dilemma! πŸ™‚ Wouldn’t that be something if they made a cake for you?

@WeddingWonder:  Isn’t that show the best? I wouldn’t mind the cake tasting like cardboard if it was that awesome.

Ugh everything is cheaper in the US πŸ™ For some reason the wedding industry just isn’t as ‘big’ here. Maybe it’s to do with population, but whatever the reason, I agree it sucks :/
