our wedding cake...a trial run...



I have a cake fairy...her wedding gift to us is a homemade, yummy, frosted, wedding cake.  She's a peach and frequently sends me wedding inspiration...the girl knows her weddings!  A while back she emailed me a picture of the prettiest, sweetest lil swirly frosted cake ever...and I was hooked. Last weekend she created a mini trial run cake for us...to see if we like the flavor, the frosting, and the texture of her swirls.

All three were big fat A+'s! (the cake itself is a spiced pear cake...with a cream cheese frosting....dear God...it is yumminess incarnate.) 

Side note....the ripples in that frosting are totally bodacious.




And it was uber delicious!

  1. Now this post is just plain CRUEL. You had me at the first glimpse of fluffy white frosting. And then you had to type "Spiced Pear Cake" which I've never heard of and now want desperately to try. If only wishing would make it so. ;)

  9. Spiced pear with cream cheese frosting? Yum!

    And I love that it's "messy" and swirly. Truth be told, fondant kind of turns me off - it looks so...inedible.
