Tastings and Consultations
A wedding is a special time in your life and we are happy to help you creating the cake of your dreams from traditional to exquisite designs.
Since this is such a special occasion we recommend to set an appointment for a consultation and/or tasting. Due to the special attention that goes into your wedding cake, prices and decorations are discussed during your scheduled consultation.
- Wedding consultations and tastings are scheduled on Saturdays morning and some weekdays from 10am to 2pm. We will definitely try to accommodate your consultation if these days/hours don’t work for you.
- There is a tasting fee of $20 which will be deducted from your bill if you decide to order your cake with us.
- We can accommodate up to 4 people for a tasting.
Please email email@example.com or call (941) 907-8222 to schedule an appointment.
We recommend you schedule a consultation with us so we can design the cake of your dreams together with you (see above). This way, we can make a sketch to get a good idea of the general design and decoration details.
You may already get some ideas and inspiration for your cake by having a look at the many pictures we have on Flickr or Instagram. We also have several picture books at the bakery if you prefer.
All our cakes are covered (iced) with a delicious layer of Swiss Meringue Vanilla Buttercream (Fondant is optional). Feel free to mix, match and choose from any of the Pastries by Design cake menus.
