Cakespiration

I can barely contain myself… Tomorrow we have our cake tasting!!! I can't wait to see what amazing flavours we'll get to try. I was reading through our baker's 2011 wedding cake flavours and they all sound so amazing. Chocolate raspberry…double chocolate…pumpkin Philly…red velvet (my personal favourite)…raspberry tuxedo…vanilla passion fruit… And that is only a handful of the flavours she makes!

In preparation for our tasting I've been scouring through pictures of cakes so we can not only talk about how our cake will taste, but about how it will look.  Here are a few of my favourites!

I really like the tall proportions of the layers in this cake. Plus the white texture and "buttons" running up and down are adorable!

Once again, I love the white on white texture on this cake that I found on Style Me Pretty. It is so simple and gorgeous!

And finally, I really love this cake! It is on a very similar ruffled milk glass cake stand to the one we'll be using. I really like how the cake has a hobnail texture that echoes the hobnails on the cake stand. So pretty!large_image (1)

I can't wait to taste everything tomorrow and to share the inspiration photos that I've gathered so far. Hopefully our baker will be inspired too!

Were you deliriously excited about tasting cake?

I didn't get to do my cake tasting :( I couldn't book one until I had already moved away and wasn't able to do it myself. So, I sent my sister. She got to taste the options AND walked out with free cupcakes. Sigh.
