Yumsie! Yumsie! Yumsie! Oh the cake consult. I just wrapped one up last night with our lovely bakers. They really are amazing. Who are they you ask? Con Amore. Full Disclosure: Con Amore is Mumsie and Sister’s burgeoning cake business. This means I get to be extra EXTRA crazy with my demands. I mean requests. At the conclusion of our meeting many decisions were made. All of which are subject to change.
To start off I had Sister do some sketching of cake ideas. I’m going hard with the playing card motif. Tell me if you think it’s too much.
My first rather grandiose idea is depicted in the lower right. I was thinking a little gradation in color with a darker purple on the bottom. One of the tiers has a light lace detailing which was supposed to mimic my dress.
The cake in the upper left corner has quotes from the story. This is a cute idea and veers away from the card theme which I might be beating to death with a wedding stick.
Sister also wants us to consider the following for a groom’s cake. I’m not sold.
If I heard the caterer correctly we are totally responsible for dessert; a task both terrifying and terrific. Terrifying because there are so many choices. Terrific because there are soooo many choices. I’ve narrowed it down to three cake flavors though. Sister wants a fourth. Hmmm…
Cheesecake w/ red velvet on the bottom – We call these “Red Bottoms” Cheeky buggers
Chocolate w/caramel buttercream – These ought to be super yums.
Vanilla w/ passionfruit buttercream – Divine!
How do these flavors sound? Any others I should consider for a possible fourth choice?
