I have searched the board and really haven't found an answer to my question. So I am sorry if I just didn't look hard enough!
I am doing my first wedding cake for a friend of a friend. The bride has not tasted my cakes, but 2 of her friends have - at any rate I am confident that she is going to book with me, but she still wants to taste my cakes. I don't have cakes frozen, so I am going to have to bake whatever it is I decide to let them taste. I thought about giving them the option, but I don't want to spend a ton of money on any specialty flavors they might ask for. So, what are good flavors to have - cakes, icings, & fillings.
Any words of wisdom with my first tasting? Oh, and I am limiting the tasting to 3 people.
Thanks in advance!
Your two best flavors and four fillings that they can mix and match with the cake.
One of the most recent threads...Very informative. I personally only do my white cake and then MAYBE chocoalte if I feel like it. I just do the white cake...mention to them that this cake can be flavored in many different ways to accomodate what their needs are. I have never had a problem with folk complaining about not having enough flavors. Also, I do my basic bc and one or two filling...nothing deep at all....Just a time to taste and get to know each other and our styles since we are both kinda interviewing each other (if the bride and family turn out to be PITA's, I am BOOKED on that day)! You can usually tell if they are gonna be crazy or not. Anyways, check out this thread too!
Karen, I can't figure out how to send a link (stupid me), but if you go indydebi's posts, there is a recent (and good!) discussion on tastings. the topic is "Tried my sampling appt a new way today".
Hope this is helpful, and good luck.
Thank you all! I will check out the two links posted!
