Cake Tasting Tips
After meeting with some prospective bakers and you have narrowed it down to one you like your next step is the cake tasting. For a successful cake tasting here are some things to keep in mind:
*Prepare- Bring photos for inspiration of cakes you like, cake topper or any decorations you have planned to go on your cake, fabric swatches of your colors, and anything to help figure out the cake design you are aiming for. Also make sure to eat beforehand and treat this like a "dessert course" and drink plenty of water to make sure your taste palette is clear.
*Budget- One of the first things you should discuss with your baker is the budget then from there they can offer you different flavors and designs that fit into your price range.
*Eat- Savor each and every flavor. Take your time to figure out what ones are your favorite. Try to keep your guests in mind not everyone likes unique flavors so try to include one classic flavor.
*Style- Your baker should be able to sketch out a possible design of what your cake will look like, make sure at that point if there are things you don't like to let your baker know of any changes that need to be made.
