We had an appointment with our cake lady last night (was actually on July 26th)! We’ve decided to go with Kakes by Kathy and I’m really excited. I decided to go with Kathy because she did the cake at my high school friend, Kaylee’s wedding in June. They did sheet cakes to serve to the quests to save cost and I thought was a great idea!
We’ve decided on a 3 tier square cake. The bottom two tiers will be fake since we’re going to have the sheet cakes to serve to guests. We will pretend to cut the bottom tier for pictures and then they’ll bring us a piece of one of the sheet cakes and we’ll use that to feed to each other (and hopefully it’ll just be feeding, not smashing). We thought we wanted fondant, but decided to go with a smoothed buttercream in stead because it’s cheaper and tastes better.
As far as flavors go, we decided to do the top-tier of the cake (which we keep and freeze for our 1 year annv.) chocolate with strawberry filling. We will have three half sheet cakes for our guests and decided to go with a couple different flavors for those so that people have a variety to choose from. We decided to do one chocolate with raspberry filling & chocolate frosting, one white with strawberry filling and buttercream frosting and the other one marble with chocolate filling and buttercream frosting.
They are going to taste amazing!!
