Mmmm...Cake!

How good do all these mini cakes look.....

My sister-in-law's Mom loves baking and makes cakes out of her home, so I definitely had her in mind when we started talking about our reception. We met with Michele, of Michele My Belle Cakes, last Saturday afternoon and had the best time! She made us several tasty mini-cakes with so many flavor combination to choose from for our wedding cake.

First we went over the design of the cake. A few months ago when I started talking about different cake options, JJ didn't seem to interested in helping with the look of the cake. I wasn't surprised by this because he's not much of a sweets or desserts person. Me, on the other hand, could eat sweets & chocolate for almost every meal. What I loved about our meeting with Michele is that JJ sat down the night before and looked through lots of pictures with me and then he sketched out a design that helped incorporate several elements from the pictures I'd printed out. He was so cute when he showed Michele has drawing, presenting it in a very business-like manner, saying it was just "something he came up with". In the end, I know we're going to have a very fun cake with elements that tie in the design of our invitations and our wedding colors of brown, green, and burnt orange.

On to the tasting part...check out these flavors & names of the different cakes:

Luscious Lemon Cheesecake
Whole Lotta Pina Colada
Key Lime Time
Heavenly Hazelnut
White Chocolate Raspberry
Banana Dream
Chocolate Cake with Peppermint Patties
Chocolate with Vanilla Butter cream

What a hard job on a Saturday afternoon, indulging in tasting all that cake! Good & tasty are not words that describe how wonderful all these cakes were...I'd go as far to say that they were Out of This World, all of them! We each like different ones, JJ like the White Chocolate Raspberry, I loved the Chocolate Mint with Peppermint Patties filling. We also both really loved the cake with Lemon Icing and Cheesecake filling. They were all such good and unique options. Michele told us to pick 3 flavors, one for each tier of our cake, and luckily we didn't have to decide that day b/c it would have been hard!

I'm betting we will go with the Lemon option for sure, and then we'll each pick a flavor for the other two layers. We will soon find out in a few months....maybe another tasting is in order to make sure I loved them as much as I'm remembering!!
