For some reason, and I’m not completely sure what it is, the cake is one of the last vendors that we need to book. It hasn’t been an easy decision. After all, some of my early cupcake posts were some of the first posts I ever wrote. So, it’s been on the back of our mind for a while.
We had a couple places in mind, but the first and only place we actually went and did a real tasting at was Cakeology in the Park Street area.
Personally, I was biased even before the tasting since their mascot is a panda. I mean seriously, how could I not love this place?
But enough talk, let me show you the food porn.
We started off with our four chosen flavors and the fifth standard:
Seriously, each flavor was better than the last. Each one was unique—a little different, but yet, so good.
Because we didn’t have enough choices, we had to try another flavor, Boston cream pie. We felt it would be a great iconic flavor for our large group of out of town guests.
After a delicious tasting we really couldn’t narrow the choices down, so we decided we’re going to have five different flavors of cupcakes at our wedding! We decided to have everything we tried but the red velvet. We will have two cupcakes per person, so I hope our guests will be able to get their fill.
We also decided on a simple six inch cutting cake so we’ll have something to cut. It was a no-brainer to get German chocolate cake. Yum. I haven’t completely decided what kind of decorations I want on said cake, but I’m thinking something like this:

I am so thrilled with our choice and I know that the cupcakes are going to be absolutely gorgeous and delicious.
What flavors did you pick for your cake? Did you have more success narrowing it down than we had?
