    @Klu007:  I’d opt for a more simple design on a cake that tastes good rather than a lovely cake that tastes like dirt. I don’t eat food because it’s pretty, I eat it because I like how it tastes. It is food, not a painting.

    People always remember the food at weddings. I don’t think you want something as important as your wedding cake tasting awful – especially if you know in advance and have time to fix it.

    I would NOT get a cake that doesn’t taste good! People look forward to eating the cake and if it’s bad, they’ll remember. I never judge a messy-looking but tasty cake (I’ve been to weddings where the cakes were homemade by friends as the wedding gift) but I do judge a pretty but bad-tasting cake. If the other baker can’t do anything fancy, just have plain solid-colored frosting and lay a few flowers on top.

    If I was in your situation, I’d just make it myself. I refuse to pay someone a single dollar for something that doesn’t even taste as good as what I can do with a box of Betty Crocker and a can of cheesecake frosting.

    Are you sure no one in your town bakes out of her home? A lot of people can do beautiful things with a couple Wilton decorating classes and a Cake Bible.

    @Klu007:  I think the taste of the cake is actually more important than how it looks. What’s the point of a cake that tastes like crap? Don’t let this baker make your cake. Is there no way that you could look for a baker outside of your town? That seems like the obvious solution.

    Decoration is important to you but taste is important to your guests.
