The first step toward your custom made wedding is a consultation and tasting. Before contacting The Bee please check the "Availability" page to make sure your event date is still open. During the consultation, we will discuss decor, cake flavors, and pricing for your wedding cake. A variety of cake samples will be available for you and your guests to sample. Most tastings run around 30-45 minutes in length and cost $10.00 for a group of 4 or less. Tastings are only offered for wedding cakes of  50 guest or more. Please note: A scheduled tasting does not guarantee or hold your wedding date.  A signed contract and deposit is required to hold a specific date.  
Wedding Cakes 
The total cost of your wedding cake will depend on your choice of flavor, fillings, and decor. Most orders fall into one of three price ranges. Multiplying this price by your number of guests will give you a general idea of your total cake cost. Your final price will reflect your unique design choices.
