Cake Tasting!


So I recently made another trip to Santa Monica/Los Angeles to do the last bits of wedding planning that required me to actually be there, one of which was ... Cake Tasting! The Casa del Mar offers 5 different places to get your wedding cake from, which is included in your wedding package: Vanilla Bake Shop, Sweet Lady Jane Bakery, Butterend Cakery, Fantasy Frostings, and Bottega Louie. We managed to hit 4 of the 5 shops and skipped Bottega Louie.

Our cake flavor samples to try



Flavor wise each shop had different flavors they were strongest at baking. When it boiled down to picking our favorite flavors, we picked different flavors at each shop. At Vanilla Bake Shop I think we picked their Coconut and Carrot Cake, but at Sweet Lady Jane we picked their Red Velvet and Princess Cake (their red velvet was my favorite of all the flavors we tasted!). I was also surprised to see Red Velvet at only two of the shops, I guess it must be a trend of the past now! Design wise the shops were pretty happy for you to guide them, which to me is perfect. 

Can't wait to reveal the final cake and design!

Some of the cakes at Sweet Lady Jane... so delicious!
