Wedding Cake

It may or may not have escaped your notice that I am getting married. In May.

There's not a huge amount I can tell you about the food yet, other than give you a list of the kind of food we're having. We've eschewed the idea of a sit-down meal in favour of something more informal  to entertain our guests. Plus I love a good buffet.

The idea is that canapés and drinks will be served after our afternoon ceremony, followed a bit later by afternoon tea (sandwiches, scones and cakes). Then a nice buffet spread for our evening guests.

And then of course there will be the cake. I'm quite excited about the cake now. It's going to be a square, 3-tier affair (one chocolate sponge layer, one lemon sponge layer and one fruit cake layer) with a daisy theme.

We met with Kathy of Kathy's Cupcakes & More last night to discuss our ideas with her and to sample some of her cake. Kathy had kindly made us some cupcakes with our theme on to give us some ideas and so that we could try her cake.

Sorry about the poor quality of some of the photos. My fiancé was rushing me to take the photos so he could eat them! And very scrumptious they were too. The finished cake will be a lighter blue, but it was really good to get an idea of how the cake will look and what kind of designs we can have on it. I am very excited to see the finished product now!
