Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! You’ve come to the right place to start your planning.
Tasting and Consulation:
Due to Covid-19, Cakes by Christa no longer offers in person consultations. Don’t worry we can do everything online or over the phone!
Option #1: You will be provided with the samples for you to try with your loved ones and make a decision on your own. I would also provide you with a rating sheet to help you rank your favorites.
Option #2: You will be provided with the samples and we sit down together “virtually” for the tasting and consultation where we discuss ideas, preferences, and prices. I would also provide you with a rating sheet to help you rank your favorites.
Tasting fee: $30*
If you would like more than 3 flavors, it will be an additional $10 for each flavor.
As an added bonus, If you place your deposit within one week of the tasting, the tasting fee ($30 max) is deducted from the overall cost of your order (must exceed $300).
