The Cake

I Love Wedding Cake.  Like Love It.  I knew when we first started planning that I wanted to have not only a great looking cake, but a great TASTING cake.  So many times you go to a wedding and the cake is AMAZINGLY beautiful but it doesn’t takes very good or it is crooked and the icing is messy but it tastes great.  I found my “cake lady” as I call her from the girls at my school.  Whenever we have a special occasion they always order a cake from Amy’s Cakes.  I knew that she was definitely in the running to make my cake.  I knew the deal was sealed when my mom and I made our appointment and momma tasted the cake and loved it.  Amy was so sweet and accommodating, she painted the cake while we were there, let us taste different flavors, etc, I recommend her for any occasion.  I was having a hard time making a decision about what colors to use on the cake and she suggested that we have her make a birthday cake with half one way and half the other.  SO SMART!  I can’t wait to see which one I pick. It is going to me a 5 layer cake with flowers in between layers.  It is going to consist of white cake with a super good buttercream icing.  There will be a lemon layer, a raspberry layer, and a layer with fresh strawberries (yum)!  I will leave you with some inspiration pictures for the cake:

The three-tiered round cake was covered in white frosting, adorned with pink and green sugar roses, and filled with ganache. “It was beautiful and delicious,” Nicole says.       An almond-flavored cake with raspberry filling was covered in pink fondant and embellished with a white fondant bow and the couple’s monogram. A groom’s cake shaped like a tuxedo was surrounded by small, monogrammed brownies.


      The couple‘s sweet tooth was first evident during the recessional to James Taylor‘s

and the winner is :


I love this cake.  It will probably be off white with tan dots and pink ribbon.  I am going to use brooches from members of my family and the flowers will the all different colors.  The topper will be a very sparkly L like this: (yes I know this is a M)
