..... Cake lady! I don't know how many of you remember but a week or 2 ago my cake lady bailed and basically told me that I couldn't afford her and sent back our deposit! On Sunday, we had an amazing cake tasting. The cake was the best I have ever had and we booked her and even figured out what the cake would look like. She was great and I want to thank everyone here on WW who convinced me to ditch the other lady and get my deposit back. The previous baker was going to charge over $1200 and this baker is only charging $595! That's only $2.50/slice and it's amazing! We went with vanilla flavored cake, raspberry preserves filling, and vanilla buttercream icing! I have attached a picture of my inspiration and the drawing that our new baker did since we added an extra tier and up'ed each tier to the next size to get the most cake possible!

    That's awesome!! It's funny how things work out the way that they do sometimes... I'd be thrilled with another $600 freed up in my budget!

    @MnDex, it was the most amazing cake I have ever tasted and thanks!

    @Cristi, Yes. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason so this was great and my mom is paying for the cake but that other lady was out of her mind charging that much!

    @Suzi, I really think it will work out much better. Thank you! Smiley smile

    @Squid, yup. I lucked out for sure Smiley smile

    @FMS, yes! I knew I couldn't let my mom pay $1200 but $600 is so much better and I never thought what I wanted would be so inexpensive.

    @Miss S, it feeds 238. The layers are 8" 10" 12" 14" and 16"

    @OJ, Thanks, I can't wait to see it. Only 438 days left till then haha

    @Paris, it sure did. Thanks for the advice last time. I really didn't want my deposit back b/c her work was so beautiful but this lady is great too.

    @yuly, Thank you so much. That means a lot and Yes!! my GAIN! haha

    @Amanda, I do too, so blessed! Thank you Smiley smile

    I was in the same situation a week ago, except my cake lady cited family issues. That's just not something you do to a bride...especially when she's 3 weeks out from her wedding like I was!!! Everything happens for a reason, I am now getting everything I wanted and I now have the feeling that my new cake lady is 100% capable. Glad everything worked out for you!!!! Awesome deal on the cake!!!
