What types of cakes do you offer @ your cake testing? Does your bride select or do you recommend most popular? Also,what's your most requested?

For my tastings, I let them choose three flavors. My most requested are Snickerdoodle Cake, Double Chocolate, and White Almond. I usually recommend those.

Of course, my tastings are offered with a hold the date deposit.

For me, I offer two at no charge and additional flavors they pay for. Kinda hard to say most requested.

The bride does NOT select the flavors. If you allowed the bride to choose, it is not very cost efficient. Imagine havine 5 tastings and doing different flavors for everyone. I do 4 flavors: Red Velvet Cake (I'm in the South), chocolate, almond, & white. I don't really see white as a flavor, but people really do. I have a lemon curd, chocolate ganche, SMBC, cream cheese frosting, and some MMF.

I just did a tasting this morning.. I offered lemon, white almond, coconut/coconut bc and red velvet. I always take the white almond because just about every wedding cake I have made is with that flavor. Usually I do whatever flavors are on hand from other cakes of the week.

I still don't get a whole ton of tastings yet. Mostly party orders...and *some* tastings.

Anyway I offer a free tasting using whatever cakes I have on hand (sometimes I have extra batter and put some in the freezer). Or a custom tasting for $25 and they choose three flavors and fillings.
