Final Cake Meeting

I went out and talked to my "cake lady" the other day.  That's how she signed my card at my shower =]  We finalized the design and cake flavors and got everything together that we would need.

Here was my original inspiration.  This was the sketch I came up with from looking at the picture.
We ended up changing the plans just a little.  Instead of doing ivory tiers, we decided it might look a little dirty, so the cake is going to be solid with with white-on-white designs.  The two skinny tiers are going to be "dummy cakes" so there will only be 4 edible tiers.  The top, of course, will be saved for our one year anniversary.  That one will be white with white filling.  Because I hate chocolate =]

The other three tiers will be the following flavors (I forget which goes where):
Chocolate with fudge filling
White with white filling
Lemon with raspberry mousse filling

I'm excited to taste the lemon one.  I just had a cupcake she made the other night that had the mousse filling and it was delicious!

We're doing solid black grosgrain ribbon for the bases of the tiers.  They're 1", 3/4" and 1/2" widths.  The only problem with this cake is that it's going to be huge! So I had to build a cake stand to go with it, instead of being able to just go buy one.  Look for that DIY post later on today.


  1. We also had to build a cake stand for our cake and it didn't turn out the way we wanted it all. We don't have your talent! I am sure it will be gorgeous...sounds yummylicious!

  2. mmmmm I haven't had breakfast yet, and now all I want it cake. I think if I had any in the house that would be my breakfast. Your cake sounds delicious!

  3. It's going to be SO gorgeous! Can't wait to see the real thing!

  4. Great design, I love how the skinny dummy layers soften the stepping up of each tier.

    Also, LOVE lemon raspberry :D
