We want to start looking for our wedding cake soon, so does anyone have any favourites in Dublin? We were going to get a gorgeous one from Limerick, but we're not sure if we can get it picked up now (long story O:| ) The one we had picked was Belgian chocolate fudge, Baileys madeira and spicy carrot cake...decorated with white chocolate curls. We'd be looking for something similar. Also, how do you go about getting samples? Do you just go in and ask or am I being stupid ? :-8 Thanks

Try the boston bakery...i have been told they have a showroom and you can taste/see what they have...any good bakery should be able to do up what you want... hope you have some luck getting what you want...

There's a company called Top Tier but they're based in Cavan, don't know if you'd be willing to travel, but they have a showroom there where they can mix and match anything that you see and might like. Hope this helps!

Tasting cakes was one of the few aspects of wedding planning that H2B was interested in. And like everything he does (bless him) he did it thoroughly and patiently, leaving no stone unturned. All of the places we visited gave us samples to try and to be honest we were surprised at the difference in quality. We were ready to pay a deposit to one place until we tasted the cake and realised it was horrible. We didn't have the same range of options on cakes as they all get very busy at Christmas and you can only have fruit or chocolate biscuit and Cake Box in Dun Laoghaire had the nicest chocolate biscuit cake. Of course, if you have more options to choose from, you might have to sample their cakes several times just to be sure you're making the right decision. Oh, and if you want your H2B to come to wedding fares, the words "I think there'll be cake samples" work everytime!

Thanks for that Valkstar. That is so mad, that shop is really near where my parents live but never even thought of it! Will have to go in when I'm home for Xmas.
