Cake!!!

Recommended Posts

I bet you opened this thinking I was going to have a picture of my cake. wink.gif No such luck. I was hoping to solicit ideas about flavours and ingredients...

 

My coordinator suggested something called "Vanilla Whip Cream Custard with a layer of Logsdon Lilikoi (passionfruit) with a white sponge cake". It sounds DELISH! But I have no idea what that would taste like... it sounds a little tart.

 

What do you guys think? What kinds of cake are you having? Will they melt if I cut mine in the outdoor ceremony?

 

Thanks for reading...

We had a chocolate cake with the vanilla whip cream custard. It was different (LOL). I know it sounds strange, but I wasn't sure what to expect with the whole custard thing & it truly was just like custard (which I'm not a fan of.) It was very good though, I'm just weird about the textures of food & custard is one of those weird textures to me.

We cut our cake after our outdoor ceremony & it held up very well through the ceremony - didn't melt at all. Good luck!!

Where did you guys order your cake? (Or where are people planning to?)

 

The only place that my planner mentioned was mauiweddingcakes.com - they seem expensive... considering a lot of brides on this forumn said they wouldn't even do cake if they went back and did it all again..

We did Maui Wedding Cakes and it was delicious!!!

Personally, I'm a big sweets person, so I definitely don't regret doing cake...even though I was only able to eat a little bit of it at the actual reception cause I was already so stuffed lol!! They wrapped up and sent the top with DH and myself though, and since we had no way of freezing and shipping it, we enjoyed it the next day, YUM!

For flavors, we did marble cake with standard vanilla filling and white cake with pineapple filling.

Stacy, we only ended up with 25 total people (when we ordered the cake, though, our estimates were closer to 50 lol--so that's about what the cake could serve) so they were large slices and like I said, they boxed up the top tier for us which was a 6" circumference. It was about $400, so not cheap, but very tasty. That price also included the special pineapple flavoring additional cost, flowers on the cake, and set-up/delivery.

I do believe adding a third tier does increase the price quite a bit, and I guess had we known that we would have done larger sized tiers and only had 2 tiers, but ah well. What's done is done lol. It was definitely some of the tastiest cake I've ever had (and I've enjoyed plenty of cake haha!) So if you're thinking only 2 tiers or even 1, the price shouldn't be nearly as much. If you have a lot of guests you might also consider doing a small cake and having a sheet cake to go along with it.

Safeway is another good idea you could try!! I've never had their cake though, so I can't aid in their quality or taste, but perhaps someone on here can!!
