Let Them Eat Cake!
Posting about my wedding got me excited to blog about some of the details. Because I have a HUGE sweet tooth, I thought I would start with my favorite wedding tradition.....the cake. We are going to be working with The Colorado Rose Cake Company to create the confection of our dreams. Our cake looks a bit like the cake pictured to the right, but it will have four tiers instead of three, and will have more flowers (2 pink gerbera daisies on each tier (they will alternate sides) and 3 pink gerbs on top), and will have brown icing instead of black. Marci, our baker, has one several awards and is SO reasonably priced. Her bakery is actually the entire bottom floor of her home, and her tasting was incredible. We received plenty of personal attention and were able to sample all of the kinds of cake we chose for our big day. Tier 1 will be chocolate chocolate chip cake with chocolate mousse filling, tier 2 will hold golden vanilla cake with raspberry gel filling, tier 3 will be a carrot cake with cream cheese filling, and tier 4 (our anniversary cake) will be chocolate cake with peanut butter filling. For an extra $25, we are also renting a gorgeous silver stand to display our confectionery delight.
