Wedding Wednesday: Let them eat cake!

Kev and I had our first (and last) cake tasting yesterday afternoon.
Saying it was delicious is an understatement and a half.
I am talking the BEST wedding cake that has ever been in my mouth.
KR isn't much on sweets and he even agreed that we needed to shop no further than the fabulous Martine's right here in Lexington.
Not only was she a sweetie, but she made the wedding cake design process a breeze.

We sampled amazing flavors like champagne cake with strawberry, maple, chocolate with bourbon, amaretto, pistachio, lemon, white cake with hazelnut and the list goes on and on and on.
We did not decide on specific flavors, but got a better idea of what flavors we enjoyed the most.

My faves: pistachio (which i didn't think I would like at all but it was the bomb dot com) and amaretto
Kev's faves: lemon and amaretto
We both liked the champagne flavor with the strawberry in the middle.
We are thinking a different flavor for each cake...but those decisions will be made a lil closer to the big day.
YUMMY YUMMY.

We designed our cake right on the spot after our sampling and here is an idea of what the cake will look like.

Take this texture, but imagine 4 tiers...


plus the raffia straw looking accents
(nix the birdies on top)


and this for our cake stand

and you get.....
Our perfect Country Girl and Boy Wedding Cake.

Just one more thing I can cross off my list.
Check!

Love it! I agree with the different flavor combos for each layer. A lot of couples do that so it's a nice variety for everyone. Love the rustic look!
