what kind of cake are you having?

Recommended Posts

Tres leches is this super moist kind of white cake. It's called tres leches (3 milks) because it is made with milk, condensed milk, and evaporated milk. You basically let the cake absorb the milks. It tastes pretty much like vanilla and is soooooooo good. Tara if you get the white cake at Las Caletas that is what you'll have - well unless you request something else. I make my own but it's never as good as the bakery...of course!

We're not doing wedding cake.. We have a yummy desert.. chocolate fudge cake with hot fudge wrapped in a tamale.. served with vanilla ice cream. We're using Lazy Gourmet.. it was one of their choices..

 

If I had to pick a cake right now.. it would probably be about 5 layers.. one cheesecake, one chocolate, one lemon, one carrot, and top it off with keylime pie.. I HAVE A HORRIBLE SWEET TOOTH!!!!

Starchild,

I am having difficulty accessing your cake picture!! It's so darn frustrating! It says "accessed denied" or something like that. How many layers was your cake? I definitely want the Tres Leches now that I know what it is. I wonder if I can have one layer of that and one chocolate or maybe carrot with buttercream frosting. Would they do that at Las Caletas? I also like having strawberries in the middle with the frosting. Yummy! Iwill have to ask Nicole or Kelley. Oh, did you have fresh flowers surrouding your cake? Man, I wish I could see it. Is there a way you can send it to me via my work email?

Just PM me if you need it but you probably already have it!!!

Thanks

 

Oh, yeah: In risk of sounding like a fool, what is a fondant?

So weird, try this and if it still doesn't work pm me with your email and I'll send it that way. It was 3 layers, I'm quite sure they can get any kind of cake you want. I've heard the chocolate cake is good, the tres leches was excellent. It did have fresh flowers, and orange ribbon to match my color scheme, although the ribbon looks red in the photo.

flavor...german chocolate...but as that wasn't available for Drea and My wedding, we got some strawberry type that I had a small bite of and it disappeared.

 

Hey, does anyone actually keep their cake for a year in the freezer anymore and eat it on the 1 year anniversary?

 

That always sounded so odd to me that I wasn't about to try.

Um, no. Old cake is not hot...especially if it moved through a few time zones before it made it to the freezer...lol

Good...that just seemed disgusting...and when Drea suggested it, I almost lost my dinner.

Oh, and it figures that the only person online right now would be the SoCals...lol

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
