Cake Tastings



  • If you’re planning to order any of our pre-designed cakes (e.g. Classic Cakes, or Everyday Cakes)

  • OR if you’re planning to order a custom-designed cake, but your guest count is less than 50

  • OR you’d like to order a bigger custom-designed cake to serve 50+, but we aren’t able to synch up our schedules for an in-person consultation…

… then our “to go” cake tasting packs are perfect for you!

Our “to go” tasting packs are $45, for three flavors of your choice from our menu. We provide enough cake for 2-3 people. (Add $15 for each additional flavor beyond the first three; add $5 per sample for gluten-free or vegan flavor choices.) If you are planning to have lots of friends or family with you for the tasting experience, and you need more cake than 2-3 servings, we will gladly “supersize” all your samples for a flat fee of $20.

“To go” tasting packs are typically available for pickup on Friday afternoons, and Saturday mornings (before we head out on wedding cake deliveries).

A note about in-person consultations:

  • If you’re planning to order a completely custom-designed cake from us, dreamed up specifically for your event by Carla (e.g. Custom Wedding Cakes, Novelty/Sculpted Cakes)

  • AND, if your custom-designed cake is intended for an event with a guest count of 50 or more…

… then an in-person consultation would be the ideal option.

In order for Carla to design a custom cake specifically for you, she typically prefers to have some time with you in person, to review your color palette, floral design concept, event lighting, logistics, and so on. If you’re planning your wedding from out of town, we can schedule this meeting during your next visit to Seattle. (If the timing doesn’t work out, we can always collaborate over email instead — it just takes a little longer!)

Consultations take place on Mondays and Thursdays between 12 noon and 6.30pm at our beautiful cake studio in lower Queen Anne. (Because weekends are devoted to delivering and setting up cakes on location, we regret that we cannot schedule in-person appointments on Saturdays and Sundays.)

If we’ve scheduled an in-person design appointment with you, you don’t have to do a tasting — but if you do, the tasting fee is $45 for 2-3 guests maximum, including you and your fiancé(e). This fee includes 3 flavors of your choice from our menu. (Add $15 for each additional flavor beyond the first three; add $5 per sample for gluten-free or vegan flavor choices.)

You are welcome to take the extra cake home with you to enjoy at your leisure. We kindly request that you come prepared for your consultation (with pieces of inspiration, color swatches, a rough idea of your day-of timeline, etc) so that we can make the most of the 45-60 mins that we have together. Our aim is that your preparation and research — and your own personal taste — will combine with Carla’s live sketches and creative guidance to achieve a well-developed cake design concept by the end of the appointment.
