The Best Things in Life Are Free...Pastries

This whole wedding planning thing can be seriously intense at times.  With so many vendors and so many decisions to make, I keep expecting something to fall to pieces.

The truth is, so far at least, our vendors have been wonderful.

Yesterday's cake tasting at Konditor Meister was no exception.  It all just seemed too simple.  It felt like there should have been more questions to answer, more decisions to make.

But it was just a matter of eating cake, showing them the cake we liked...

...and walking out with free pastries.

Now, it's apparently standard for them to hand the couple a box with six pastries after a wedding cake consultation, which is just plain lovely to begin with.  But since we were heading to a holiday party afterwards, we thought we'd buy some pastries for that as well.

So, we walked up the the counter, ordered our 20 pastries, and the girl behind the counter said, "Okay, you're all set."

Brief pause on our end, followed by me asking, "Okay, do we pay over there?"

To which she responded "No, you're all set."


Then she finally says, "You just had a wedding cake consultation, right?  Then you're all set."

I still walked out of there thinking she was going to get in trouble.

Free pastries are magical.
