Cake Recommendation

For those still looking for a cake, I had my tasting with my baker this weekend. I had tasted his cake at a friends wedding and fell in LOVE (I'm generally not a cake person and I LOVED it). I set up a tasting for him and we had it this weekend. I didn't expect much from a tasting, but he well exceeded my expectations. I expected just a cupcake sized taste for 3 flavors and fillings (of my choosing) but he had 3 six inch round cakes for me to taste and take home. I'm still eating on it because it was THAT good.

If you still need a cake, then I would highly suggest you considering Clark. I do have other bakers in my bio that you can look at. http://seandmb.weebly.com/bakeries.html

Now, I don't want to get knocked for people thinking I'm raving too much about him. I know he is a very little known baker and I want to get his name out so that other brides can see him.

He is Clark Robertson. His email is [email protected] You can see his previous cakes here.

For my cake, which will serve 100 not including the top teir (so we can have it for our first anniversary) it is $175. The grooms cake (serves 50) is $85. Plus $25 delivery and setup fee. That's only $285 for a wedding cake and a groom's cake. I was really impressed.

If you want me to list his flavors and fillings, I'd be happy to. But you can just email him and he'll send you a list.

    I'm intrigued! Neither my FI or I are really into cake but it would just be so strange to have a wedding without a cake! We'd rather not spend an arm and a leg for it but we don't want it to be hideous or taste like cardboard either. This guys sounds right up our alley! Thanks so much for bringing him to our attention. We'd prefer to support a lesser known baker than these other (overpriced, imo) bigger names! Would you mind listing his flavors and fillings?

    I tasted the chocolate on chocolate, the marble with traditional and the yellow w/ strawberry.  Even though they were all good, we ended up going with the marble w/ traditional icing for the top tier, red velvet w/ cream cheese for the middle tier and the traditional white w/ the traditional buttercream for the bottom tier.  We are doing the chocolate on chocolate for the grooms cake!
