My first wedding cake tasting!

After the engagement party cupcakes were picked up I was off to my first wedding cake tasting! I will be making my first ever wedding cake April 24th for friends of mine :) I'm so excited!! All the cakes I've been making so far are kind of like "practice" before the big day.

The bride actually wanted to try some of the same flavors I had made for the engagement party so that made baking a lot easier. (Oh yea I forgot to mention in my previous post that I had NO POWER when I woke up this morning!! I was freaking out... it came on about an hour and a half later). Any who... I also whipped up some chocolate orange cupcakes and almond raspberry cupcakes.

I have never done a tasting before so we didn't really know where to begin, so I just told them to dig in!! Talk about sweet overload *lol*. I'll know in a few weeks what flavors they choose :)

The aftermath
...and there were still more cake combos to try!!


  1. Hi Cara, thank you for stopping by my blog. Your work is adorable, and your cupcakes look really yummy! I do have another recipe for chocolate cake that I use in some of my cakes, that one has coffe on it and people like it very much. Just let me know if you want to try it. Take care,

  2. Thanks so much :) I love your blog - layout, recipes and all!! I would love to get another chocolate frosting recipe... I've had so much trouble finding THE one, that I've making chocolate ganache instead (which is good too, but ya know :-)
