Our Wedding Cake is Kind of a Big Deal

When choosing a wedding cake maker/baker we went with who we had heard so much about: Carrie's Cakes. I think almost every wedding I have been to has used Carrie's Cakes- not only are her cakes beautiful, they are really moist and tasty too!

Carrie has a new blog and featured our fabulous cake on it! I knew I wanted a simple cake, and since I was doing an all black and ivory wedding, I assumed I would have an elegant black and ivory cake. I had met with Carrie's assistant, we designed a cake and that was that. Months later I was flipping through a BRIDE magazine and found the most fabulous cake I had ever seen that matched my wedding theme perfectly: ivory round tiers embellished with black designs. I ripped out the picture, scanned it in to my computer and sent it off to Carrie and she re-created the same look, but perfectly me! The cake I sent her had flowers on it and I wanted to keep mine more simple and just use the hot pink petals to match the bouquets and centerpieces of the wedding.

The cake turned out perfectly... each tier was a different flavor with an accompanying buttercream filling- YUM!
