Cake Tastings

The first step in the ordering process is to schedule a tasting with us.

  • If you are available to meet us in person, we will invite you (and up to TWO others) to our tasting room in lower Queen Anne for a 45- to 60-minute consultation with Carla or Becca. The time will be used to connect, to design your cake, and to taste.

  • Our personal consultations are $100. This includes a tasting of three flavors of your choice from our menu. Surcharges apply for additional flavor choices. We provide mini cakes that will serve 2-3 people in total. You are welcome to take home the extra cake to enjoy again later or share with family and friends; indeed, we encourage you to do so!

  • If you’d prefer to pick up your cake samples “to go”, followed by a phone or email consultation to finalize the cake design, you can choose any flavor you’d like from our menu for $20 per sample. Gluten-free or vegan cake cups are $25 each. Cake and fillings are layered inside a lidded cup, which is easy to carry — and which also captures the same ratio of cake-to-filling that you’ll have in the final (custom) cake.

Regarding our “to go” tastings:

  • Our sample cups provide enough cake for 2-3 people to enjoy a few bites each. If you are planning to have lots of friends or family join you for your at-home tasting experience, and you need us to provide more cake than 2-3 servings, let us know and we can discuss the options with you!

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

Regarding our in-person consultations:

In order for us to design a custom cake specifically for you, we typically like to have access to as many design references from you as possible. Your color palette, floral design concept, event lighting, etc, are all of crucial importance during the design appointment. Ideally, we would have information about logistics as well (e.g. reception start time, time frame for vendor setup at your venue, etc).

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!)

If you’d like to schedule a personal consultation with us, please let us know (in your initial inquiry) the days on which you are typically available to meet.

We kindly request that you come prepared for your consultation with design references and logistical information (see above), so that we can make the most of the 45-60 minutes that we have together. Our aim is that your preparation and research — and your own personal taste — will combine with our sketches and creative guidance to achieve a well-developed cake design concept by the end of the appointment.
