CAKE!!! :) yay

so my cake tasting was yesterday and i am sooo glad we didnt go ahead and sign a cake contract with him. dont get me wrong it was a good price and his white cake with rasberry fillin was amazing. but what he quoted me on the phone wasnt what he was gonna charge me and when i said i wanted to get a little 8" square grooms cake he said it was $100, so a little much for such a small cake.
My sister-in-law (brothers wife) told me about the cake that was served at her cousins wedding and how yummy it was. She gave me the ladies email. I think the bakery is lone star bakery for those of you in san antonio area. OK, i sent her a short email, then she responded with a few questions. :) for my 2 tier cake for about 80ish people... $200 for buttercream. i was so excited, HOWEVER, i really want fondant cuz i think it looks prettier. the bake shop yesterday told me it would be like 500 to 600 dollars. lonestar bakery :D $280. i want to cry im so excited, i emailed her back to tell her i would love for her to make our cake and that we deffinatly want the fondant.
IT GETS BETTER!!! i had stopped reading the email cuz i was so happy when i saw the price. i went back to it, and this AMAZING price of $280 INCLUDES the delivery, the cutting, AND the serving. After i read that i did cry :) i found found my baker.

  • That is awesome!! And since it's in an email, if you get to the tasting and she charges more, you can just pull up the email! Lol.

    Anyway, I'm really glad you found somebody! That's such a huge check.

    Not caring about missing RSVPs because there aren't any rocks!
  • That's awesome.  Can't tell you how many bakeries I went to before finding one we liked that we could afford.

  • I am so excited for you....that sounds like a great price and someone already told you the cake tastes good so you should be very pleased.
    The bane of my existence: my bouquet. It's not right yet, it's not what I wanted and I have so far to go with it and so little time! Wedding Countdown Ticker
  • Yay for Checks!  Cake was the most fun my FI had during this ENTIRE process. :)
