@Soon2BMrsMiles: hey that’s great to hear. I was wondering about her b/c she had great reviews but I was the fence once I saw her site. I skipped her b/c the front page appeared to only be fondant cakes and we wanted buttercream. I’m going to a tasting w/Leslie from Frosted Fantasy this afternoon. Will report back. ๐Ÿ™‚

@Soon2BMrsMiles: That is a gorgeous cake! We ordered ours from Leslie @ Fantasy Frostings this afternoon. The cake below is a similar one to the design I ordered. Mine will have a different topper, a vintage ribbon w/a vintage flower & then no ribbon hanging down. I’ll post a final image if I do a recap ๐Ÿ™‚ We had so much fun and she was a blast to work with.

It was really funny b/c I had a group of photographs that I brought in and she could point out the ones that were Erica’s and the ones that were hers right away.

Ooh, time to do some bookmarking for when I get to that stage.  Although part of me just wants to go the King’s Hawaiian route… ๐Ÿ™‚

sfchick, you mean these folks, right?

@Frog E.: yes that’s her. Don’t let the celebrity stuff scare you away. She’s very down to earth and easy to work with. Wedding Wire has great reviews. I do not recommend Sweet Lady Jane in West Hollywood. Porto’s Cuban cakes in Burbank get great reviews too – a totally different kind of cake altogether.

@sfchick: Thanks!  South Pas would certainly be convenient for us. Of course now we’re obsessing about having an ice cream cart (over a year out, we have no officiant etc. etc yet, but we are obsessing on ice cream…) and that probably knocks anything but King’s Hawaiian out of the budget.

@Frog E.: hey if you decide to do ice cream instead, can I suggest you try Lake Street Creamery from Pasadena? They have a small vintage truck and their flavors are to die for. The truck is darling – looks like an old milk delivery truck w/a striped cloth awning – super friendly staff and the ice cream RAWKS. I am still contemplating this as a splurge if our budget allows.

@stripes: Thanks for the encouragement!  I was looking at your recaps and so envious of your trucks–for some reason, taco truck is the one thing my mother is putting her foot down over, and even though she is not chipping in financially I can sort of see her point since we’re going to have a lot of older guests who I don’t imagine would be super comfortable with that. But dammit, we want our ice cream!  ๐Ÿ™‚
