Sweet Treats: Cake Tasting

This past weekend was a busy one! I've previously mentioned that I had mailed out our invitations, well on top of that my lovely MotownMaids (bridesmaids) had their first fitting (I'll post on that next!) and to wrap it up Mr. Motown and I had our cake tasting on Sunday. This is by far one of the best parts of planning. When we arrived to the tasting this is what awaited us:

We sampled the following favors : Banana Infused, Double Chocolate, Lemon, Vanilla and Red Velvet. Also we tried several fillings: Baileys Chocolate Mousse, Cream Cheese, Butter Cream, Butterscotch Caramel and a Whipped Mousse.

I made sure to taste a piece of each favor, some where eaten a little more than others :)

So after lots of tasting and a few glasses of water we decided on a 3 layer cake with the following :

Bottom Layer : Vanilla Flavor with Butter Cream (the basic wedding cake flavor)

Middle Layer: Double Chocolate with Baileys (Liqueur) Chocolate Mousse

*Disclaimer : All guests are limited to only 2 slices and must show ID to eat (just kidding, it's really subtle but soo yummy)!

Top Layer: Red Velvet with Cream Cheese

We are so lucky to have a great baker, she is giving us a free cake on our 1 year anniversary so we don't have to worry about freezing the top layer (which imo is a little gross).

So we finished the specifics for the big day and she sent us on our way, with all the cupcakes of course!

What are your favorite cake flavors to eat at weddings? Which ones are hits or misses?
