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.
I'm thinking of having my wedding at the FA, can i ask what cake vendor this is? I'm planning on going soon for a site visit and would love a heads up as to where not to go...

That's nuts! What if you pay the tasting fee, don't like the cakes, and decide not to use them...they can't apply it toward your cake so your out $$ on a small piece of bad cake that should have been free!

 

Don't let them sucker you. I swear some vendors hear wedding and take advantage...pretty sick!! I agree you should look somewhere else. If other people aren't charging to taste then that says something, you know? Good luck!

I just went to Jen's House for a cake tasting. Her cakes are AMAZING and she is such a nice person. Do not eat breakfast!!! She does charge a flat fee of $25-it is worth it for a great sugary start to the day...

I just had a cake tasting for my bridal shower cake....we were not charged and OH MY GOD did I EAT! He gave me a variety of 6 different cakes and like 12 different fillings. But I dont think I would pay for a cake tasting, it doesnt say much for the baker, you would think they would want to highlight their great work not charge for it before youve even tasted it!

 

I can see this...that makes sense

I forgot to mention, Jennifer Hatton is doing my cake for the wedding & so far she has been great! Her communication and suggestions have been helpful!
