So Saturday afternoon we took our inspiration to Wedding Wonderland. We walked into a showroom full of decorated Styrofoam cakes. They were pretty busy but we finally found someone to help us. She told us that our contract with the Holiday Inn included any of the cakes on the showroom floor. If we wanted something other than one of the cakes on the floor it would cost us on top of the contract. Honestly, my heart sunk just a little bit at that moment. While I didn't really care about the cake in the grand scheme of things, I know what I like and didn't want someone to tell me I only had a few options to pick from. However, not caring enough to pay extra we started wandering the showroom. We immediately found a few cakes that actually weren't so bad and I could like. We quickly narrowed down the 60-some cakes down to 4:
Ha- totally kidding! Not sure I can imagine any occasion where that is the cake I would pick.
Seriously here is what we decided on:
Ours will only be 4 tiers instead of 5. The black tier will be royal blue and the swirls will be green.
We also got to decide on what flavors we wanted our cake to be.
We sampled 6 different flavors:
yellow with strawberry filling
chocolate with fudge filling
white with raspberry filling
banana with no filling
carrot with cream cheese filling
strawberry with no filling
We decided on 3...can you guess which 3?? I will give you a hint- 1 of the 3 doesn't have any filling.
