Cake Tasting

Posted by pom on Nov 08, 2011

I know that in my previous post I said that my mom was planning on making our wedding cake.  I would still be 100% thrilled by this ideas as she is a very good baker but she is having reservartions due to the fact that she wouldn’t be in her own kitchen and that she will be flying in with the rest of my family only two days before.  So I have signed myself and Mr.Pom up for a cake tasting!  I am further along in our decision about colors and saw this cake and fell in love with it.  It’s simple but so pretty:

This cake would perfectly incorporate all of our colors and would look so wonderful!  My idea is to have a cake for us, and anyone else who wants some, and then have a bunch of mini pastries from Whole Foods perhaps.  I just always find it such a shame that cake is given to every person at each table and if those people don’t eat it, or aren’t around when the table is cleared off, then the cake gets tossed.  I think our option would give a variety of sweets and hopefully everyone will find something they like.

So the cake tasting, I found this wonderful bakery in New Hampshire called, Jacques Fine European Pasteries.  They have even delivered to the Naswa before, our ceremony and reception site.  They have a number of different fillings and overall options, I just know that I do not want any yucky fondant.  How is everyone’s cake decision coming along?  What kinds of cakes are you considering?
