Hello Ladies,

I need some help, Please. How many cake tasting do you do for a wedding cake? How many tastings  is customary to do ? I have a customer, last month, I did a 2 cake tasings for this family...I made one of the wedding cakes allready, and I just got a new e-mail asking for another testing... Should I do it for higher price or say sorry?

Thank you in advance

I offer one tasting - 4 flavors each of cake &  buttercream of their choice. The fee is $25 and if they book at the time of the tasting the fee is deducted from the total price of the cake. No free tastings, no multiple tastings.

I agree.  In fact why does the same family want another tasting if they have already had your cake??  I would NOT make any special flavors, they can taste what you have on hand -  especially if it's different than what their 1st order was and then  just 2 or 3 flavors -  Oh, & I'd limit how many people can attend - say just 2  or 3 (B&G & maybe MOB).

The answer is one tasting that they pay for, and if they want more they can pay more for that. Make sure to charge a lot for your time and to cover the cost of the cakes. which you could make and give to them to take with them. If you start charging them the cost of a 6" cake for each flavor plus an appointment fee on top of that, they'll stop asking for more appointments really fast.
