  • Wedding: December 2014 - The Villa

I went w/ Touche Touchet Bakery in Columbia, MD. I can’t really share the price b/c it was an all-inclusive deal that came w/ the venue. However, they are an independent bakery and do all types of desserts. They just happen to have an agreement w/ my venue.

I dislike fondant most of the time so we didn’t want to chance it. We went w/ all buttercream. We have a 4-tier cake and the flavors are:

Top Tier: Yellow Cake w/ Lemon Filling

2nd Tier: Yellow Cake w/ Raspberry Preserve Filling

3rd Tier: Red Velvet Cake w/ Cream Cheese & Strawberry Mousse Filling*

4th Tier: Chocolate Cake w/ Raspberry Preserve & Cream Cheese Filling

Exterior: Swiss dots & bead borders on all tears – pearl shimmer airbrush on all tiers

It will be a combination of these looks:

*My fiance picked adding that strawberry mousse to the red velvet cake. it ended up tasting like neopolitan ice cream ::shrugs::

  • Wedding: July 2013

I used Georgetown Cupcakes. It was far cheaper than a cake and they were really good. It was one area I was okay cutting costs in (and the OOT guests who watched the show were really excited for them!)

I used Cake Fest Sugar Art in Springfield, VA for my June wedding.

Cake was gorgeous and tasted great. I got so many compliments from guests! She was the best! (Price was way less than I expected, too.)

I didn’t have cake at my wedding, but for other special events, I always use Fiona’s Cakes in Severna Park. Her chocolate cake would be my last meal on death row. No lie. I want to say it works out to about $4.50 per slice for shower cakes and the like. It may be more for multi-tiered wedding cakes.

We used Amphora Bakery. I think our cake was 5.50 a slice. We had two flavors on the main cake (and another on the grooms cake, which was a couple hundred bucks). The main cake had alternating layers of funfetti and lemon with raspberry filling. The grooms cake was Guinness Chocolate cake with Bailey’s Irish Cream filling.

Also look at CakeLore http://www.cakelore.com/

Her cakes were beautiful (and tasty). We decided to go with Amphora because they were cheaper for what I wanted. If you want something super intricate she would be the person to go with.

I’ll second the Touche Touchet Bakery. I bought a celebratory (non-wedding) cake for my SO. I wanted a zombie theme, and they went above and beyond in the decoration. It wasn’t cheap–$150 for a rectangular to feed 40 people, but it was worth every penny. Funny, creative, beautifully done, and delicious! Chocolate with peanut butter filling, buttercream.
