Hey Buds! I wanted to briefly talk about the cake tasting Sunflower Dude and I went on. Now, our cake is provided through the catering company, and we figured it would be pretty standard, one to three tiers, vanilla or chocolate, maybe some design. I went in wanting a dark chocolate frosted cake so it would match our theme so adorably. I knew I didn’t want a “boring” white cake. Turns out that the darker the dye, the darker your teeth can be stained after eating it–not good. Especially with a white dress. I was pretty bummed when we were told this. I lost much of my vision and wanted to leave.
I think our consultant felt this radiating off of me and instead of trying to sell me some type of cake, she took out a piece of paper and a pencil and began to draw a four-tiered cake. I was kind of confused and excited. She had me look through examples of cakes they had designed before. One of them looked like lace. Actual lace, not a fondant or frosting. She took this idea I had and ran away with it! She started off with the base of the cake being a dark ivory (not quite a dark brown, but I didn’t hate it) and proceeded to design my dream cake in front of me. She pulled out samples of ribbons, cut out sunflowers from a magazine, (which I wanted on the cake) and we didn’t want a topper, so we ended up with a chocolate monogram!
I’ve narrowed my cake design choices down to two. Are you ready?
Option #1: a mix between Cake A and Cake B.
So, our cake would have the little pearl dots lining the bottom of the cake, the swirls above the fondant ribbon. No flowers (we’ll perch our love birds on top). And instead of having a fondant ribbon, we’d have a ribbon bow, with a medium-sized flower on top. Like this:

It’s no secret with my friends and family that I am a fan of dessert! After my dress this was the next item on my list…my initial thoughts were to do many different varieties of sweet treats – a dessert bar.
Hello garden! Periwinkle Dude and I are getting ready to choose our wedding cake decor and we thought we’d get your input on the topic! Our wedding cake is coming from Rolling Pin Bakery in East Setauket, NY, where we’ve heard the cakes are yummy! They have dozens of enticing options on their website, and we’ve narrowed it down to the following 3 options. We will probably go with either a white or light blue butter cream frosting to match our color scheme, and our florist said he could sprinkle the wedding cake with some flower petals to dress it up a little more if we want. Please help us out and let us know which of the following wedding cakes you’d select!
