Ok, so you have to love the movie Anchor Man to know why that title is funny-but at least I make myself laugh, right?
Guess what I got to do today?
Yup! Â You guessed it! Â Tell em what they’ve won, Bob…
Pictures and descriptions of my cake! Â Lucky you!
I got to taste our cake today…
Ok, so I didn’t want a cake in the beginning. Â I am not a fan of the cake cutting tradition, and I am TERRIFIED of the tackiness that is smashing cake in faces. Â Vince promises he won’t (and I’ve threatened instant annulment if he does) but he loves a joke and a prank, and I’m still afraid he’ll do it. Â I have nightmares, seriously.
My parents really wanted a cake, and since I didn’t care strongly either way, I agreed. Â THEN, I came across this wedding cake, and I was excited…
I absolutely love this cake. Â We hired our baker through a recommendation. Â I emailed her the picture and she said it would be no problem. Â I really wanted it to be simple and rustic.
I chose the flavors-her famous sour cream pound cake for two layers, and her INCREDIBLE chocolate cake for the other two. Â For the filling we have coconut cream and chocolate ganache. Â YUM. Â The funny thing is, we hired her without trying the cake. Â I trust our coordinator, and when she said the cake is delicious I believed her. Â My mom was a little less trusting. Â She has been worried about the taste of the cake, so I set up a tasting with our baker for today.
She was wonderful in person and she brought us four squares of chocolate cake, four squares of pound cake-and tupperware containers of the filling. Â Oh. My. Goodness. Â YUM. The cake was amazing. Â I brought some home for my non-sweet tooth Dad, and HE loved it. Â Vince loved it, and most importantly, my Mom loved it!
Here is all that was left after we all had our turn with the cake!
Ah, what a great day.
How did you ladies chose your cakes? Â Did you find inspiration or did you pick from your bakers portfolio? Â Is your cake going to match your dress? Â I always think that is so neat.
