Simma's.....Are they good?

I'm torn between two bakeries ( Simmas, Regina's bay bakery)Have you ever had a fondant cake from either of these bakeries? how were they?

    fondant is not very tasty no matter where you get it. Looks cool though. Simma's is wonderful cake is awesome. Schedule a tasting. It is free and is one the best parts of wedding planning.

    should say "and is awesome". I just noticed you are still almost 2 years away from the wedding. They probably will not book a tasting or the wedding yet. Most vendors only book 1 year in advance. My unsolicited advice is slow down. You are going to change you mind a ton in the next year. You don't want to locked into contracts, dresses, or bridal party too early. Enjoy your engagement. I planned my wedding in 10 months. More then enough time.

    i agree with pp.... 1) simma's is fantastic 2) fondant is beautiful, but never truly tasty 3) and take your time with the planning.... we did ours in 10 months too... and i wish i could do the fun planning parts all over again (and pick the same vendors). if you are antsy to get planning, find your church/ceremony site, reception site, and photographer, videographer and band/music. the rest is not competitive in booking up. go to bridal shows, get great ideas, and keep your eyes open for ideas at friends/family weddings. some things you think you need, you'll find out aren't all that important. and somethings you never even would dream to think about will end up being more important. your taste in dresses, flowers (and heck, even friends/bridesmaids) can change a lot in two years! i would start down that road at about a year out (or even less). good luck with your planning!

    Brewtown Girl, I dont need your "Unsolicited advice" You dont know how im planning my wedding? Im not putting any deposits down until next year, and Your wrong I've already had a tasting a both bakeries. I just wanted advice and feedback. My life is much too busy to plan a wedding in 10 months. Like you! I already know fondant isnt very tasty, but that wasnt my question. I asked how the CAKE tasted. Dumbass!

    ps. if you read my response I did answer your question and said the cake was tasty. Fondant is nasty no matter where you get it. It just looks cool.

    Oh, SNAP, Brewtown. You got TOLD! She obviously has more going on in her life. Than you!Reidie dear, fondant sucks, plain and simple. Last wedding I went to had fondant on the cake, and I ate all around it. Looks gorgeous. But if you really like your guests, you'll choose tasty over pretty.

    We can also see all your posts. Where did I say you should plan in 5 months? I told you to relax and enjoy your engagement for the next year and that it is easy to plan a wedding in under a year. People have been getting married for a long time with going to school and working full time. It is not hard to plan one. Sounds like you care more about the wedding then the marriage. Really, calling me a b!tch is pretty beebeeish, but then to cry to another board and exaggerate it pretty lame.

    I certainly hope that when you write papers for school, you use better spelling and grammar than you do here. Your posts give me a headache.

    Simma's rocks!  Enjoy their cake. And ladies.. it takes more than one person to have an argument. Calm down all of you please.

    If you are having a normal cake (non-cheesecake) I would go with Bay Bakery, personally. I haven't had the fondant, but I was at a wedding in the beginning of August with a cake from Simma's... nothing special. It could have been bought from a grocery store and I wouldn't have known the difference. Also, it had butter cream frosting which also wasn't memorable. You could try asking the bakery about flavoring the fondant, perhaps it would taste better? Otherwise, fondant cakes are gorgeous. Plan your wedding as far in advance as you want. I'm not getting married for over a year, but I think it pays to get an idea of what you want and get all the details settled before you actually make the official decision. Then you still have lots of time if you change your mind. Some of you really need to take a cold shower or something. She was asking opinions about cake, not for advice about how to plan her wedding.

    Umm, if you didn't notice I gave some very nice advise and answered her questions in my first post. Told her to enjoy being engaged for a few months. You don't want to be the bride stuck in contracts when you find something you like better a year later or be a 2 or more dress bride. Worse, the vendor goes out of business because of this economy and you are out money because you already gave a deposit. You change your mind a lot during the planning and she is almost 2 years away. She is the one that flew off the handle and called me a b!tch immediately. I can be a very person, but she needed to chill the he!l out. She was being a 21 year old beebee and got call out for it.

    Yes, you did give very good advice. I was just appalled by the way MSNBarbie responded to the hostile reaction from the original poster. But really, what's the harm in asking around and getting ideas of what you want? It's a way of enjoying being engaged... I'm enjoying it, anyway.
