Before Scheduling a cake tasting, please consider the following:

  • Aside from the number of invited guests, will I need additional servings for band members, photographer, etc.?
  • Am I saving the top cake tier for our first anniversary?
  • If it is a large wedding, would I prefer a large multi-tiered wedding cake for the viewing table or a smaller-scaled wedding cake with a few back-up sheet cakes to be sliced for additional servings? (The second option will decrease the overall cost.)
  • Did I review Dinkel's cake flavors and fillings? Did I choose 3 cake samples and 3 filling options for my tasting?
