Hey there! It’s Ashley and Camden, your favorite Richmond wedding photographers, back again–this time with tips on how to go cake tasting while in COVID-19 quarantine!
We don’t know about you, but we’re sure going stir-crazy up here! It can be even more difficult for couples who are planning their wedding but don’t know how to meet vendors during quarantine. We’re here to help! Here are some creative ways to taste your future wedding cake while in quarantine.
Order Take Out!
Most bakeries and vendors are happy to help you taste cakes in quarantine by making a take-out version! Here in Virginia, most small businesses are open with restrictions. Those restrictions don’t mean you have to sacrifice cake tasting! Just be sure to wear protective gear when you pick up your takeout cake order, and keep in contact with the baker via virtual means like texting or video calling while you sample!
Bake a similar version with your squeeze, and see if you like the flavor!
There’s a reason we have a nation-wide flour shortage in the U.S.–everyone is baking during quarantine! Why not use this to your advantage and bake a similarly flavored cake with your fiancé/e to try out the flavors and see if you even like them before taking it to a professional baker!
Think cake alternatives
Not set on a cake yet, but planning to taste some just to make sure? Think about having a cake alternative, like cupcakes, donuts, pies, or ice cream! It’s likely you already know what those will taste like, and where your favorite donut shop is (mine is Krispy Kreme!) It’s also likely those places are still open for takeout or ordering!
As always, during this difficult time we hope you and yours are keeping safe and healthy! It’s been a blast sharing some of our cake tasting solutions to quarantine with you today!

Until next time,
Ashley and Camden
