Thank you for your interest in a tasting with Cake Bloom!

Meeting with new clients is one of my favorite parts of this job, and I look forward to getting to know you and learning more about your wedding plans.

As a very small, boutique business devoted to giving each client as much personalized attention, creativity and energy as possible, I offer three Tasting Packages that help me meet the needs of weddings large and small, from elopement cakes and smaller-scale sweetheart cake, to 3-tier naked and semi-naked cakes, to grand, five-tier floral-filled cakes flanked with rustic fruit tart, french macarons and my signature cake bloomers.

 

Please note: due to a very full 2017 season, tastings are available on an extremely limited basis and will start up in full swing February 2018, but please do reach out once you have a date and venue secured so we can start the conversation.
