style me bridal – the cake

There are two really fun parts to planning a wedding…shopping for a dress and the cake tastings! Damien and I had our first (and only) cake tasting at Susie Cakes last week. Their yummy cakes and frosting were so delicious we didn’t look any further. We ordered our wedding cakes on the spot! Yup, I said cakeS…plural. wedding wednesday - the cake - STYLE ME GRASIEInstead of having one, large 4 tier cake for our guests, Damien and I thought it would be fun to have one 2 tier “wedding cake” then have 3 other round cakes in different flavors. Our big cake will be a classic vanilla cake with vanilla frosting for the top layer, then a classic chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for the bottom layer and the whole thing will be covered with a white layer of frosting for the “wedding design.” Then, we’re going to have a separate red velvet cake, coconut cake (my favorite) and carrot cake (Damien’s favorite). How fun is that?!wedding wednesday - the cake - STYLE ME GRASIEDesign wise, I was inspired by the cakes below…simple, pretty with a bit of nature (flowers, berries etc) to decorate it. Small, elegant and delicious! YAY CAKE! wedding wednesday - the cake - STYLE ME GRASIE
