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!
