MACALUSO'S Brides **Cake Tasting Question**

Hey Girls,
 I have a question for those of you who are getting married at Macaluso's. When i asked about the cake tasting I was advised I had to contact Carlo's Bakery and set up a testing with them.
 I have made numerous calls and haven't received a call back? When I sent an email I was advised it's $100.00 for a testing? I don't think that would apply to me but before i responded I figured I would ask.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!

    I don't know anything about Macaluso's but Carlo's does charge a standard $100 cake tasting fee, which is a rip off IMO.  Do they work with any other bakery because honestly Carlo's cake aren't even that good compared to other bakeries. It's all about the name.

    </div><div>i agree, the wedding cake is included, and Carlos is there in house baker, So that is why I think a $100.00 fee is ridiculous to charge when your tasting should be included.</div><div>
    </div><div>I thought the $100.00 fee would be for people that are requesting a cake on there own. </div><div>
    </div><div>I have to agree I haven't heard great things about the cakes but i figured if included in my package i wasn't going to complain.</div><div>
    </div><div>Thanks for your help!</div><div>

    Why don't you see if they will offer you a credit if you go elsewhere.

    Yes... I was thinking the same thing.  See if you can get a credit then go somewhere else.  Or, buy one cupcake each of each flavor you'd like to try.  I know it's not the same batter and/or baker, but maybe it would be close enough.

    <div>Hii.. I think I am getting married there around the same time as you.. There aren't many Macalusos brides on here... I didn't ask for a tasting and they didn't offer it either.. I just picked the cake and the flavor.  I'm sure it will be good plus they have a ton of other desserts in the viennese hour so I wasn't too picky about it but they should offer a tasting if requested.. I know this doesnt really answer your question.. sorry.. </div>
