Check... cake!

Yesterday we went to Susie's Scrumptious for cake tasting. We had a lot of fun. It was the only wedding activity that FI has really been involved with. I let him take over. For the design he went through the books and chose a simple three tiered square cake. We wanted to keep it simple and modern like our cp's. He wanted it to be angled so it's more like diamonds. It will have a lime ribbon around the base and pearl dots on the icing. All buttercream. I made sure to point out to him how fondant cuts (when we were tasting) and how it doesn't normally have as nice flavor to it. The bottom tier will be dulce de leche, middle tier will be kahlua chocolate, and top tier almond. We got a cake for 125 ppl, instead of 150 because we are also serving dessert. If we feel more people are coming then we will add another tier back on. More tasting... oh darn. PIB under cake.

    That cake looks BEAUTIFUL! I love it. I want one angled like that!I have not gone tasting and probably will not for a while. My next time in town will likely not allow time for it :(   So I have no idea what those different flavors taste like. Dangit, I really need to make it in!

    Yeah you definitely have to go tasting. I am not a caramel fan, and my favorite was the dulce de leche. I love hazelnut, and that was my least favorite. Some of them were sooo rich we thought it wouldn't be good for the guests, especially since we are serving dessert. You have to try and fit it in!
