Jason, the head pastry chef, at Market Salamander and their cakes are amazing! Our venue recommended Market Salamander for our wedding cake. I called in October for an April wedding. Jason said it was early and people typically do the cake tasting 3-4 months in advance but was more than willing to discuss and he sent pricing. Pricing is very reasonable and totally worth it.

We went in January for the tasting. You select 3 you definitely want to try (out of a decently sized list). You can have up to 4 people for the tasting and it was about $35 for the tasting (to be applied to the cake if you go with them). In addition to the 3 you've chosen to taste, Jason brings a bunch more (I think 5 more). We were beyond thrilled that he brought other options-- at first we were sold with vanilla since everyone likes vanilla and it was light. Then we tasted the carrot cake (which I don't like carrot cake at all) but this was more spicy and light and AMAZING. We were sold. Also during the tasting, we looked at past designs and showed pictures of what we liked. We talked through what we wanted. A contract with details and amount was sent within a week. We signed and sent in 50% deposit.

A couple weeks before the wedding, we solidified the number of guests. Initially we want natural flowers on the cake, which wasn't a problem but then I wanted Market Salamander to do the sugar flowers. They modified the contract really quickly and were extremely responsive. I also gave them the weight of the cake topper so that they could plan if it was heavy.

Day of, I was so busy that I didn't even see Jason but the cake looked absolutely amazing. We got 3 tiers for 65 people with carrot on the top and bottom tier and vanilla in between. Everyone absolutely loved the way it looked and tasted. It was fantastic. We were able to save a few pieces and enjoy days after the wedding which was an added bonus. I can't wait to have it at the 1 year anniversary.
