Cakes and Catering

29 Aug

We set appointments for cake tastings, and made it to both of them.  At first we were worried that we weren’t going to remember what the first cakes tasted like because the appointments were set about three weeks apart. We’re going to have to make a tough decision. Both places had really great cakes! At the first tasting, we “sampled” 7 full slices of cake.  There were a few that tasted better than others, but overall, we’re happy to eat any free cake.  At the second tasting, we were given the individual parts of each cake separately. We had to create the cakes ourselves with ingredients like white cake, chocolate cake, whipped cream, butter cream frosting, chocolate mousse, etc.

We also met with a caterer.  They’ve increased their prices, and don’t have a set price list.  Strange?  We think so…  At least we got a free meal out of it! We went to try another caterer; food wasn’t nearly as good as the first. We’re going to have to see if we can negotiate a lower price for food. Hopefully, we’ll have something concrete in terms of a contract for food this week.
