This weekend we went home to Dallas and did some major cake tasting. I ate a lot of cake. I wish that I could eat cake, drink Champagne, and look like this:
Anyways, one of our tastings was Saturday morning at 9:30 am. This did not deter me from the sugar. Luckily, David couldn’t handle that much sugar that early, so I managed to sneak bites off his plate. I gorged, friends. I find cake irresistible. We decided on an amazing almond-butter cake with amaretto and mocha filling, from Jackie Spratt Cakes. Um, it was amazing. I can’t wait to eat it again. I am so excited to serve it to our guests. The frosting is all butter-cream, so we decided to go with this classic design:
I am excited about it. Picture it in this room:
Gorgeous, right? Ok. This was so much fun. Jackie Spratt is so fabulous. I love her energy and her passion. The cake design dates back to the 1920s and I love that it is so classic.
We also found our DJ! Yay! Aaron, from Uptown Sound, was so nice and easy to talk to. I am obviously not a professional wedding planner, so I don’t always know things about wiring, microphones during the ceremony, etc. That is what I loved about meeting with Aaron. He explained all of those technical things to me in a way that was informative and oh-so-helpful. So much accomplished, and I have several more meetings to go before I head home on Wednesday…What did you lovelies do this weekend?
