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.
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.
