Cake Tasting Prices

It's £50 for 2 people but the cost of this tasting is deducted from the amount you pay for your wedding cake. This includes 4 different cake flavours for bookings made on a weekday between 11am - 4pm.


If you wish to taste more flavours or have more people attend, there is an extra charge (see chart). Please note we can only accommodate up to 4 people at a cake tasting.


N.B. There is an additional charge for dairy-free chocolate bad boy cakes.

Dates & Times

Tastings at The Local Bakehouse (in Brislington) are on weekdays between 11am – 4pm and usually last about an hour. If you would prefer your tasting at a different time then there is a small charge. We can do evenings at 7pm (except on Fridays) or during the day at the weekend if that's easier for you.

Can't Find..?

If you have a particular flavour of cake you like and it's not on the above list, do let us know and we can probably accommodate you. Similarly, a selection of frostings, jams and buttercreams will be provided with your cakes but if there's a particular flavour (e.g. of jam) you'd like, please say.
