cake tasting

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever had to pay for a cake tasting? I'm staring to get really annoyed. My WC said that the cake vendor wants me to pick three cakes, fillings, and frosting flavors to sample. And then I have to pay $15 for a minimum of three cakes to sample. I really think this is BULLSHIT! How am I supposed to know what flavors to sample. Isn't that what the tasting is for? I always thought they would have a bunch of different cakes, fillings, and icings to choose from. That we could mix and match and taste everything. Or have I been watching too many wedding shows? I'm really getting sick of people trying to nickel and dime us. For a 50 person cake they already want $400. Why should we give them a penny more? I'm sorry that I'm venting, but nothing seems to be going right lately. I'm even considering firing our WC. That's a whole other thread.

My resort doesn't do free cake tastings either. If we do request one, we will have to pay for it. I believe it's for the inconvenience of having the baker create sample cakes, since it's not like they keep on hand.

 

I'm not sure what the norm is, but I personally don't think $15 is unreasonable to sample three cakes. I have a feeling they charge more than that at Sandals!

Personally, I think that it is ridiculous to charge for a cake tasting! Especially when you are already paying them a big chunk of money for your wedding cake. We actually got ALL of our tastings for free - Dinner Tasting, Wine Tasting, as well as a Cake Tasting. Hmmm...maybe I just took all of the free tastings for granted?? I am curious to know if anyone else had to pay....

I think its disgusting. I never charge people to taste my cake, I just make them a few cupcakes so they know what they taste like.

 

I think you should look for another bakery, this one does not seem to be a good one in my opinion. They are in it for the money and that is all.

Daayum! well, ok then! Well, it does suck. When we heard we'd have to pay for a tasting, we decided we didn't need one. I'm still undecided about whether to use the "free" cake included in the package or upgrade. (These resorts sure do nickel and dime you for EVERYTHING!!)

I just re-read your original post and I do think that if you're going to come out of your pocket for a $400 cake, they should just give you a tasting for free!

I did a cake tasting with Deena from Sweet Dreams Cabo, it was $50.00 but that was applied to the order. Maybe find out if the $15.00 fee is put towards what you pick out.
