Tasting a wedding cake is fun as well as essential for making sure that it is prepared according to your preferences. Given below are a few tips for making the task of tasting wedding cakes less daunting and more fun:
Do Not Schedule Just A Single Day
A mistake made quite often by most people is that they try to taste all the options in a day. Bakeries usually provide 4 to 5 different types of cakes, fillings and frostings for tasting. Tasting more than two or at the most, three types, is enough for a day. Otherwise too much sweetness will surely put your taste buds to sleep for the rest of the day.
Carry Your Ideas With You
When you are going to the baker shop for completing the tasting phase, make sure that you carry along pictures and other details of the kind of cake you want. This will help the baker to get an idea of your requisites and assemble them in a blueprint. Do not forget to take down everything that is finalised at the end of the discussion.
Avoid Tasting On An Empty Stomach
Try not to visit the bakery on an empty stomach thinking that it will help you to concentrate on the tasting process better. The truth is actually quite the opposite. If you are hungry, everything will seem delicious and your taste buds will fail to catch the minute differences.
Do Not Gobble Up Dry
When you are tasting all the different types of cake samples served by the baker, make sure that you drink water all throughout the process instead of gobbling up everything with a dry throat. Not only will this help to maintain a neutral palate, but also allow you to differentiate properly between the various flavours.
Taste The Items Individually
In order to decide your favourites, taste a small amount of all the cakes at once. After that, try the different fillings and frostings served to you individually. This is an effective way for determining each flavour appropriately. Not only that, but you might even come up with a creative and delicious combination of two or more flavours.
