No, not our cake!
This past Tuesday was our wedding cake tasting!! We are working with The Baking Institute, a bakery that works closely with our venue. A couple months ago, Adam and I selected three flavors of cake and three flavors of icing that we wanted to try, and they put them together in samples for us. My mom, sister, Adam and I were eager to try them all!
From left: red velvet cake with raspberry custard; marble cake with vanilla buttercream; white cake with lemon custard
Each one was delicious, but there were 2 combos that stuck out as particularly fantastic: the red velvet with raspberry (pink on pink!) and marble cake with lemon custard. I dipped some of the marble in the lemon custard to try it, and it was AMAZING. We decided to go with a 3-tier cake: bottom tier is red velvet/raspberry; middle tier is marble/lemon; top tier (that we don’t share!) is red velvet with white chocolate mousse. The design is going to be a lovely combination of these two cakes:
We’ll be topping our cake with a Shrek and Fiona cake topper…but that’s a story for another day!
