Having secured a venue and a date, now it is time to attend to the smaller details of planning our wedding, namely the DESSERT!!!!! I am not a pastry chef by any stretch of the imagination and will be finding it necessary to find a person to bake the wedding and groom’s cakes. However, I don’t have Charm City Cakes, Cake Boss or CakeLove type loot and wedding cakes can get pretty elaborate and expensive. However, I know I’m going to need to hire someone a little bit more sophisticated than the lady who peddles pound cake at the beauty shop on Saturday mornings. (Don’t be acting all brand new and bougie on me now! *side eye*)
I don’t have a strong vision for how I would like the cake to look to be honest. I just would like for it to taste good for us and for our guests. It doesn’t need to be all kinds of Tiffany blue and chocolate madness to match our wedding colors or anything like that. I would like it to be simple, classy, elegant and taste good. And don’t even get me started on filling choices, or whether I should I have fondant or buttercream or royal icing. Or if I should I rent a dummy cake to cut costs. That’s just too many choices right now.
I’m calling on you, dear readers, to drop some ideas into the comments. I have some names of bakeries to start researching this week but other than that, I need to be pointed in the right direction! HALP!!!!! 🙂
