Whoopie Pies are the New Cupcakes

If I could get married to my husband again, something tells me I would be substituting this amazing red velvet whoopie pies for the cupcakes I had the first go around.

My mouth is watering already….

Cake Consultation

Instead of going with a traditional, tiered cake, Christopher and I have decided a tiered Cupcake cake will suit our cocktail reception best.  Each guest will have their own cupcake and Christopher and I will cut from a solid tier at the top. I’m SO excited! I think it’s going to beautiful and fun all the same time which, if you know me, that’s what I aspire to be! 😉 Today I am having my cake consultation with Original Cupcakes in Vancouver and am thrilled to discuss exactly what we’d like the cake to look like and most of all FLAVORS! My mouth is watering just thinking about all of the yummy combinations. It’s really a shame that I gave up dessert for Lent, isn’t it? When Easter rolls around I will be MORE than ready for one of these delectables! See what I mean?

Thank you to Baker’s Journal for this image.

The tiers really make or break this centerpiece. A tier that isn’t designed well can look like a christmas tree, or hopelessly unattractive. So my next quest? Finding the perfect cupcake tier!

Wish me luck!

Pretty Cakes

Today it’s raining in Toronto. It’s the kind of rain that mists the air, falls lightly, and sticks to your hair. The sky is overcast and gray, with fog covering the tallest buildings. Normally I would be disappointed about a day like today, but it reminds me so much of Vancouver that I am grateful for the gloom.

It is less than six months to my wedding and I feel as though it will never get here. I want to pick the menu for the catering already. I want to choose the cake. I want to go dress shopping for my bridesmaids. I want to go dress shopping for ME!

I know, I know…it will all get finished and everything will be fine, but I’m not a very patient person and I want it done right now. 🙂

Anyway, here are some pretty cakes to look at until I have my own.
