|Excited to be there and hoping to find the cake we want!|
|Mr. Hess thinks this cake looks YUMMY!|
|Which flavors to choose? They're ALL yummy! Seriously.|
Here's that picture of the amazing cake we saw that was inspired from Alice in Wonderland:
|I'm pretty sure Mr. Hess would pick this cake for our wedding if he could!|
We talked about colors, shape, size and she came up with a design just as cool. I'm not in love with the cake as much as the first one, but it was gorgeous and I would take it as my wedding cake anyways! Feeling good and from what I've heard, she is very affordable, so I was hopeful and anticipated the end result in what price we're looking at...then dun nuh nuh...there it was - and OVER our budget again - wayyyyy over our budget. What the heck?! I budgeted a fair amount, almost $200 over what I WANTED to pay....and this was almost double that THAT! I really can't believe how expensive a wedding cake can be! I guess contemporary and unique, trendy designs come with a price.
So, we still have some more work to do on this. I'm really glad we got to do some tastings and meet with 2 cake bakers today. But, the hunt for a wedding cake continues...I'll leave you with this video that pretty much sums up the rest. And oh yeah, I'm pretty sure we were both on a sugar high from all of the different cakes and icings we tried (especially my co-star!) AHHHHH! :)
Yeah, we were a bit ridiculous.
I must say, even though the day turned out to be a little bit of a let down at the end, we learned a lot from it. We have an idea of what we want, and we are determined to get it - in budget. If you know of any great cake makers in Central FL, send the info on over...I would love to keep trying to find a cake we LOVE that fits in our budget! :)
