Cake Person Hired!

Posted by barb on Apr 18, 2004 in Wedding |

We had a meeting with a cake person today. We had met her at the bridal show, and her samples were quite good (which couldn’t be said for the bakery that we were originally thinking of hiring). When I mentioned that our wedding would be a celestial-theme, she spouted out several different ideas about what do to. I loved that she was so enthusiastic, and she had a lot of creative ideas.

She works out of her home, and is just getting into wedding cakes. However, she has done cakes for birthdays, showers, christenings, etc. for years. I like that she is a one-woman operation — that tells me that she is in it because she loves it, and that she’s more likely to want to please us than herself (or her employer). I also like that she’s just getting into the wedding cake business. Rather than making me nervous, I feel like she is going to want to go an extra step to make sure that we’re happy, and that we’ll be happy giving a good recommendation for her work.

So, we met with her today at her house. I brought a swatch of the bridesmaid’s dress and one each of the soaps that I’m making for the favors. From these, she came up with some great ideas for the cake, and we sat down and designed something with her. The cake is a done deal!
