Mission Complete

I can officially check two items off of my list! My mom and I went to Classic Cakes of Carmel and the cake was AMAZING!!!! Seriously, it is the best tasting wedding cake I have ever had! The icing looked like fondant but was actually this amazing butter cream icing! And to top it all off, they are making my Bulldog cake for Rich (for a GREAT price)!!!!!!

Originally I wanted the Bulldog cake to be 3-dimensional of their heads but the owner made a very valid point- "it is going to look like heads on a platter." So we scrapped that idea. We are now doing a 2-dimensional cake of the boys entire body. It will be made out of a 14 x 14 sheet cake and then built up from there. After seeing other cakes they have done I am extremely excited to see the outcome of the bully cake!

Remember when I said that I wanted to kill two birds with one stone?!? Well, I did exactly that! My wedding cake has been ordered!!!!! We designed a 5-tier round cake that is classy and elegant but still simplistic (fudge, raspberry, and white are the flavors). I cannot wait to see what the finished product looks like!
This is pretty much what my cake will look like. The pearled parts will be left as is but the flowery parts will be scrolled instead of flowers. And I won't have the bunch of flowers on top, instead I will have calla lilies on top.

If you are an Indy bride I HIGHLY recommend Classic Cakes of Carmel. They were great to work with and very reasonably priced!

YES!! Good for you, that is a huge deal to have that checked off the list! Sounds yummy, I can't wait to see pics of the bully cake. I go this weekend for our tasting, I'm excited and a little nervous because she is the best in town so if she sucks we will have to hire someone from out of town which will add to the price tag!

Yay! I'm so excited for you! Looks great... and apparently will taste great. I love the simplicity of the design you chose -- similar to what I did but yours is probably more classically beautiful. Anyway, can't wait to see it!
