Has anyone started researching wedding cakes yet or had any tastings? Share some of your cake inspiration pictures if you have any!
FI and I had a tasting last weekend and one more tasting this weekend. We're hoping to make our decision after the second tasting.
The first tasting was more of a consultation so we just tried a couple of the things she had on hand. Red velvet with the most amazing cream cheese frosting ever and german chocolate cake.
If we order from her we're getting a three layer cake. The first and top layers will be what she called European vanilla but she basically described as a "heavier" cake with a vanilla-almond flavor and raspberry filling. The middle layer will be spice cake with cream cheese filling.
Our second tasting is Saturday.
We're trying: pumpkin cake with bourbon filling, spice cake with cream cheese filling, almond with raspberry, hummingbird cake, cornmeal cake (we wanted to try it because we've never heard of cornmeal cake).
This is the look we're going for. I don't want any fondant, just buttercream, so we really can't go crazy with decor but that's ok!
