Not sure if this has been asked before- didn't see it if it was- sorry!
How early do you recommend doing a cake tasting? We have no idea what kinds of cake flavors let along fillings to choose to try. My friend who makes wedding cakes and is going to make ours says to take our time and pick anything out we can think of and she can make it for us to try but I feel like that is so broad- where to even start? I asked her but she said just think of anything!
Also, on a related food topic, how early did all of you pick out your menu options? We just picked out our venue and the contract is being sent for us to look over, and this place is also really open about whatever we want them to make, they can make.
So I guess overall the question is, how early do you do tastings, cement flavors/fillings, and cement a menu? If it helps, our wedding is Oct. 5th 2013, so a little bit over a year away.
