Guess what? We finally met with our baker at the Yellowhead Brewery!

After finally getting in touch with her (she apparently works several jobs and odd hours so contacting her by phone wasn't easy, I recommend to others to ask for several contact methods and which is preferred by the vendor), we were a little worried as she confessed she was taking some vacation in July and didn't know our date! Luckily she's in town for the day and she expressed delight at the fact that our wedding is on a Sunday and thus, she won't be too busy and can really devote her time and attention.

We chatted about what kind of desserts we like, and came up with a shortlist:
  • Pies 
    • Peanut Butter 
    • Peach
    • Apple 
    • Cherry
  • Tarts
    • Lemon 
    • Butter 
  • Cookies (chocolate chip of course) 
  • Cupcakes (red velvet is Nicks favorite) 
  • Cheese cake (New York) 
  • Strawberry Shortcake (another of Nicks favorites) 
  • Creme Brulee 
  • Tiramisu
 She seemed pleased with our picks and the varieties. When asked to quote a price she even came in under our original estimate. We still think the cost sounds too good to be true, but that's the joy of working with smaller local businesses who haven't been consumed by the WIC! If we have enough left in the budget we would love to also have macarons from Duchess, and cheese of course.

Overall, we're really happy and excited to work more with Molly as we get closer to the day! I don't think an official tasting is in our future (darn) but I am more then confident to leave this in her capable hands. ;)
