Tasting Packages

The Enchanted Whisk is now offering tasting packages! These need to be scheduled in advance with the bakery, so make sure you are giving yourself enough time between the tasting and your date! If you decide to wait until a month out and I’m booked between that time and your date then I can’t schedule a tasting.

There are a few options, so read below to find which one will best suit your individual choices, and get all the details.

EACH PACKAGE IS $50, SERVES 2 ADULTS (WITH A LIMIT OF 4) AND INCLUDES:

3 cake flavors – each one is iced with their standard frosting choice

3 additional frosting flavors – each one acting as an alternate choice to one of the 3 cake flavors

3 filling flavors – fillings are extra, but this gives you an idea of what it might taste like should you decide to go with a filling. The filling choices are the same for each package and make up the most popular options

Water bottles – for cleansing your pallet between each item

Consultation – My consultations are always free, but do have to be scheduled in advance. It’s included with the tasting time. We’ll go over other options that may not be included in the tasting, pricing options and other additional details that either party may want or need.

If, within 48hrs of your tasting, you decide to book with me and pay the deposit for your order (half of the order total) then I will credit half of the tasting cost to your final payment. This would make the overall tasting cost $25.

Alternatively, if you decide you don’t need the tasting consultation you can order any number of half-dozen cupcakes, with one flavor per EACH half-dozen. Price is dependent on which recipe and if you want fillings in the cupcakes. See the “Standard Recipes” tab for a guideline on cupcake costs. With this option you can pick any flavor combination of cake and frosting for each half-dozen, and get 6 cupcakes per flavor, but it does not include a consultation and you cannot apply any of this amount to your order, should you decide to book.

If you think you will book with me and plan to see it through to the final payment, then I recommend the tasting as it is the cheaper option. If you are still deciding on a baker, or want to order flavor combinations not offered then I recommend the cupcake route.

You have 4 options when it comes to a tasting package. They have been grouped based on popularity or similarity. You cannot mix and match packages! If there is a flavor you want and it’s not in the package you want then you will have to order a half dozen of cupcakes ($12-$14) in that flavor. I can bring them to the tasting if you’d like, or they can be picked up separately.

As mentioned above. Each package serves 2 adults, but if you are feeling generous and want to share part of your serving with a friend then you may each bring one guest. Please keep in mind, though, that the servings are still small as this is a tasting, not a dessert party. The limit is 4 individuals. If you desire your child to be your guest, the age limit is 8 and up and they MUST be accompanied by their adult at ALL TIMES.

Cake Tasting tips

  1. Eat a meal before your cake tasting. If you come hungry, your hunger will stray your cake decisions.
  2. Start your tasting with the lighter, fluffier cakes and end with richer, denser. I can help recommend an order to taste the cakes, to please your palate.
  3. Taste cakes, frosting, fillings and embellishments separately. This allows you to truly taste the flavor of each.
  4. Then, mix and match to find the combo you love the most! I will usually pair the most complimentary flavors together, but maybe you’ll absolutely love a random combination– it’s your event!
  5. Drink the provided water throughout the tasting to cleanse your palate.
  6. Bring magazine clippings, pictures and ideas for inspiration of things you LOVE. It also helps to bring any details you have already finalized from your event. Things like invitations, colors, gown picture (for weddings), etc.
