Cake Confirmed

Our baker has approved our cake design and flavors! Wanna see which design we picked?


Image via Real Simple / Bakery: Eat Cake Be Merry

We loved the playful, abstract appliques but felt the grayscale was too drab. I like color! So we kept the monochromatic look but are swapping out the gray for shades of happier yellow. I may have even done a mock-up in Illustrator for our baker…


Where to stash the LEGO figurines?

Each tier will be a different flavor:

  • Grand Marnier with raspberry filling (top)
  • Marble with chocolate ganache (middle)
  • Hazelnut with apricot filling (bottom)

I’m sure there will be leftover cake. Who wants a piece?

    That is a gorgeous cake and the flavors sound amazing. Thanks for doing multiple flavors too; I am on a one-woman mission to stop single flavor wedding cakes! :-)

    Very pretty! I saved that cake in my files who-knows-how-long ago! I think your color changes make it so much better!

    OMG I have been drooling over that image since I first saw it! And I love the drab gray. 😉 Though the cheery yellow is also really wonderful.

    Love your inspiration! I think it’ll look fab and cheerful with the shades of yellow.

    switching to yellow is a brilliant move – so much happier of a cake!

    @TitaniumSpork: Once I tasted all the flavors, there was NO way to narrow it down to just one flavor. Thank goodness we have multiple tiers and an accommodating baker.
    @toshella, @Mrs. Pin Cushion & @Miss OceanBeach SF: Hey, you guys have good taste! 😉
    @Miss Lox: If cake can survive a few months in the freezer, why not the mail?! (Aren’t you geographically close too? We could arrange a cake meet-up!)

    Soooo pretty, PaC! Also, I really like the sound of that hazelnut apricot tier—mmmmmmm.

    Can’t wait to see your inspiration come to life! One of our tiers was apricot and it was a big hit!
