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...

        Cake tasting fees are normal but the fee is supposed to go towards the cake (like a deposit).

          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!
