I just had a wedding whirlwind weekend with my MOH. She flew in for the weekend to do cake tastings with me and FI and to help me dress shop for our upcoming e-pics.
For cake tastings we did Sweet Retreat, Wuollet, Jessica's Cakes, and The Cake Diva.
Sweet Retreat - very good, but not fabulous. Liked vanilla cake, but we thought chocolate cake was too springy/soft. Didn't care for chocolate peanutbutter combination.
Wuollet - we really liked both their chocolate and vanilla cake as well as their rum apricot filling and vanilla buttercream.
The Cake Diva - uses many organic ingredients. Fabulous almond cake and lemon cake. Incredible buttercream, especially the Kahlua and lemon flavors.
Jessica's Cakes - just loved her almond cake and orange cake. We tried a ton of different fillings - buttercream, ganache, custards and mousses and they were all just amazing.
We ended up choosing to work with Jessica and will have two flavors. The first will be orange cake with dark chocolate ganache and fresh raspberry sauce filling. The second cake will be almond cake with almond buttercream filling and Kahlua filling. Both cakes will be covered in vanilla buttercream frosting. Yum!
I found not one, but two, dresses for e-pics. The white one will be worn with hot pink and white heels and hot pink skinny belt (instead of white sash) and the red one will be worn with black wedge sandals.
Now looking forward to e-pics next!
