Cake Tasting

for president's day weekend, isaac and i went to visit my family! with my dad being deployed for 6 months, it was the first time that all the people that i loved the most were all in one place. i was one happy camper! also, it was the same week as hometown dates on "the bachelor" so basically isaac and i are famous. 

our family friend tricia is making the cake for the reception and she made sample cakes for isaac and i to taste while we were in town! isaac and i were stoked. my sister got super into it and set up a cake tasting for my family after dinner! she made ballots and little signs to put by the cakes.

based on the family's votes we ranked the cakes one to five, one being the best. 
although, we all know that mine and isaac's favorite trumps everyone else's favorites.

which one was our favorite? go ahead and guess!

  2. This looks like so much fun! I had a local bakery do my cake and probably met with them at least 3-4 times about it (including on the week of my wedding)... Then on the night of my reception it was about 6:20 and they were supposed to bring the cake at 6:00, so I called to ask when it would be there. Turns out they thought I was getting married the next day. Luckily they threw together something really quickly, but un-luckily it wasn't at all what I'd wanted and was just a cake with buttercream icing. Hahaha but if that's the worst thing to happen on your wedding day I guess that's okay.

  3. The lemon and the white with key lime look so, so good! I'm excited to hear what you've picked. I feel like this must be one of the most fun (and least stressful!) aspects of planning a wedding! I'm having fun just looking at the photos.
