I haven’t talked about it with my co-worker yet, but I’m probably going to go with a vanilla sort of flow.  I asked about doing a confetti cake because Fiance loves it.  She also mentioned doing some sort of chocolate cuppycakes too.  =) I’m excited.  I’m just excited about what the outside is going to look like.  <3 rosette cakes!  Oh, and buttercream frosting all the way!  I do not want any sort of fondant!

This isn’t a flavor I am going to be using, but I saw a pink champagne cake in Bride’s Magazine yesterday that looked SO good.

You guys are absolutely ridiculous, and I am totally jealous. Where was I during all your weddings? We’re just getting an Almond cake with cream cheese filling and buttercream…and I thought we were being adventurous lol.

We’re also having a chocolate fountain and a coffee bar, but at this point they seem a little lame in comparison…

I love the Bee sometimes but sometimes it makes me want to hide somewhere lol.

Sigh. I cannot wait to eat all that cake.

3 tiers:

bottom – red velvet 

middle – chocolate ribbon

top – carrot cake

and then we will have a sheet cake with plain vanilla/regular cake.  

I didn’t realize they could even make cakes with different flavors until we talked to the caterer!

@mandyanne:  And I didn’t even get any of the green tea cake during the wedding, only at the tasting!!! LOL. We made it the smallest layer because we thought people might think it was weird, but it was SO popular. It disappeared fast!

We had red velvet with vanilla buttercream for the wedding cake.  We served it later though, since we had a dessert buffet after dinner.

Our dessert buffet had tons of pies, traditional cakes and cheesecakes on it.  Oh and chocolate fondue and fruit.  I got main course, but no dessert!   Boooooo, lol.

Here’s our cake:
