Cake Tasting #4: Konditor Meister, Braintree MA
32 Wood Rd, Braintree MA
The place was packed when we arrived. We were told Saturdays are usually that busy. So don’t expect special or undivided attention. We were given a big portfolio of their cake designs. The portfolio was divided into categories, buttercream being the cheapest and custom fondant being the more expensive ones. We were then served 8 different cakes. The slices were pretty huge. We were left alone to taste the cakes then Julia came to us to discuss details. She priced our cake right there, wrote all the information on a form and gave us our copies along with a checklist, policies, and instructions.
John and I are both chocolate people, but all the 8 cakes that were served to us were delicious! I liked them all. They were so moist. If we could have all the flavors in our cake, we will. But of course that is not possible. My favorite was the Strawberry Grand Marnier. I wanted more strawberries in it though, but it was still very good without strawberries. John chose the Chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling. I loved the Black Forest as well, but without the cherries and cherry liquor which was at the bottom layer of the cake. In the end, we decided to do two flavors for our cake.
Konditor Meister never responded to my online inquiry through their website. We usually get our cakes from there, so I really wanted to have a cake tasting with them. I called them to set up an appointment instead.
