I'm looking for a good place to buy our wedding cake. I'd like to hear about anyone's positive or negative experiences with Beaverton Bakery in particular. (I'm definitely going to meet with Lamb's Thriftway). I'm trying to keep our cake budget around $400-$450 for 150 people, and am willing to buy a sheet cake (in addition to a smaller tiered round cake) to keep the cost down. I'm not really into cupcakes though. Any other suggestions for bakeries would be great as well.
Also, my fiance likes the idea of having Alotto Gelato at our wedding rather than a traditional cake. I'm still sorting out whether or not I'd miss having a real wedding cake or not, but if you or someone you know has had gelato (or something similar, like an ice cream bar) at your/their wedding, how was it? Were people disappointed/excited? Was there a huge line?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
