We used the Village Bake Shoppe for our wedding cake. My husband and I had attended several wedding shows and tasted cakes of quite a few vendors, however this was the only baker we visited on our own. The tasting was great! We chose the cake flavor we wanted to try and the filling/icing. When we arrived, we thought the cake was amazing. However, just to be sure, she brought out other fillings/icings we wanted to try. In the end, we stayed with our original choice of half and half cake, separated by a raspberry puree, topped with their butter cream icing. To chose the design, there were several albums of pictures to look through. I had wanted the pattern of the cake to be similar to the embroidered pattern on my dress. In the book, we found a pattern that was very much like my embroidery. She even asked if we wanted a different pattern of swirls - we liked the one in the picture. I would highly recommend this baker for a tasty and elegant cake!
