I'm an American moving to England in April. My wedding is in October.
I'm planning a trip to see FI in London in February. We've already selected all our vendors. I was very careful about the cake maker - I knew I wanted a STUNNING cake, and I found someone who can do it, based on her website, reviews, and references. I went ahead and paid a deposit, though I haven't had a chance to taste the cake. My question is, should FI and I go in Feb to do a cake tasting, or wait until April? Does it matter? How far out from your wedding date did you design your cake? If it matters, we are having cupcakes, a four-tier wedding cake, and another gluten-free cake (and gluten-free cupcakes).
