Because I've been so excited about cake, I keep pronouncing it like Franck from Father of the Bride
Because he always sounded really excited when he said "I suguust that we select a cack first." The only difference being that I didn't think it necessary to select a cack first. But now, we've got a date and time to meet with a cake artist near our venue (one on their preferred vendor list) and so now we have to figure out what we're going to ask her to make!

My feeling is still that I don't put a lot of stock in the cake. That being said, while what I think I want is simple and easy, it's still what I want; as opposed to some random, busy, been-done-before design. So, where does that put us? I have found designs I like parts of, so let's take a look:



Plays on proportion:

For several reasons, I think I want the cake to be chocolate fondanted/frosted; the entire reception hall is white, we love chocolate, it's different... just to name a few. By the way, I've given no thought whatsoever to what's on the inside, we'll definitely see what the flavors are before getting into what we think we want the cake to taste like.

So my vision is clearer than I realized. I literally have three guidelines: Simple, Asymmetric, and Plays on proportion. The only other thing I want to add is that I love the way the right hand simple cake (a Maggie Austin of course) sort of looks like it's coated in cocoa powder like a truffle. I don't like shiny. Ah, I also don't know whether we want round or square... think I might leave that one up to Kyle.

Well, in the meantime, we've got Mia and Dan's wedding on Thursday. So I might be quiet on the blog for a few days, I figure I'll be busy as a bridesmaid and with Kyle as a groomsman.

Anywho, did everyone have a clear cack vision? Did you want a classic big beautiful wedding cake or something a little less traditional?
