so happy we went to pick our menu today!
We are having ceaser salad, Fruit salad, Mango Chicken breast, Tri-Tip, Roasted Red potatoes with rosemary, mixed veggies…
We originally wanted to go with mexican food but we eat that ALL year long LOL.
We also were going to pick the cake but decided to wait until we do a cake testing. (since our cake is included) He asked for us to take some pics of what we are looking for. Well I fell in love with a cake but was told it would have to be made with Foundunt 🙁 i have only had foundunt a few times and was never impressed with it. He assured me alot of people dont make fondunt right so he is going to make a few different testers.. Also my Fiance wants red velvet on one of the cakes.. but i have never had it so he is going to make one…
Here is the cake i love
Minus the bow.. I want a Monogram inital

We had our final tasting today – menu finalized. Isn’t such a stress reliever? !
PS. So many bakers say they can do fondant and I have honestly NEVER liked it. But it is beautiful, and if you love it then people can push it off the cake if they feel so strongly about it.

yum yum yum. I love your cake inspiration too. I would think the baker could do the actual frosting with buttercream and do the piping around the edges with fondant along with the little flowers . If you dont like fondant, you can always ask if that is possible. Plus red velvet typically has cream cheese frosting, not fondant.

thanks ladies.. I love my cake!!! but yes i am kinda fishy about the fondunt… 🙁
Well if i dont like it i will have to see if he can make something similar with frosting.. but then again i dont like reg frosting i like whipcream… AHHH so many decisions.. but yes i am glad we picked an actual menu.. We tried all of these menu items. So we know they are really good LOL

Do you like buttercream? Thats a good one thats longer lasting than whipped cream. Especially if you will be outside, you should stick with buttercream not whipped cream. Fondant will sweat when its hot and get little beads on it. Buttercream can melt but not as quickly as whipped cream.
