    We brought some pics of cakes we liked to Donna, as well as our cake topper so that she could get a visual. Also have an idea of the # of guests you'll have. Donna will most likely give you a bag of samples (you don't get to taste them all - we didn't get to taste the one we ended up choosing) and tell you to go park somewhere to sample them. Then she'll ask you to call her with your choice(s). That's how it worked with us. Her cakes are really good. We got marble cake w/ chocolate mocha cappuccino mousse. Mmm!

    when we met with her, there was another couple there finishing up (she then told us that saturday was their "open house" day, and people are always coming in and out). We stood around for a little bit before they brought out samples of the cakes they were making that day, ate them while we stood there, she asked a few questions about the number of guests, and style that i wanted, and then quickly sent us on our way and told us to call her and let her know if we wanted to use her for our cake. she said that you dont actually pick out any details until about a month before hand. i thought that since i called and made an "appointment" that we would be sitting down formally and talking about things and details and what not, but there was a lot of running around, and we didnt sit down once, which kind of confused me. i felt like we could have just walked right in and done the same thing. her cake is amazing though...i fell in love with the lemon cake with fresh strawberry filling...and she definately knows her stuff!

    Melko has a good point. I should have mentioned that I met Donna for the first time and tasted the cakes 3 weeks before my wedding. Melko - We just stood around too. The office seemed so cramped, so that must have been why she told us to drive down the road to a park and eat the samples.

    Melko - We changed our venue 5 weeks before the wedding, so that changed our baker possibilities as well. That's why we did it so close to the wedding. You're smart to plan ahead!
