Wedding Inspiration–Wedding Cakes

One of my favorite parts and I am definitely sure it was Joel’s favorite part of the wedding planning process was the Cake Tasting.  We got to try so many delicious cake and filling combinations, it was a lot of fun and so much more filling than you think going into it.  We also got to work with the bakery consultant on the design for the cake.  Here is a little inspiration that we had going into it.

Like a lot :) pretty
