I realized that no actual decision could be made otherwise. Because let's face it... How can you decided between strawberry and chocolate if you really don't know how the both are going to taste on the wedding day.
I asked the bride and groom what arrangement of flavors they wanted to taste.
Just taste. No commitment.
I get how difficult this could be because I left the board completely open. Whatever they wanted. Just throw it at me. I'll handle it... Or at least I'll try to handle it...
Here's what I got:
Cream cheese and raspberry
Chocolate (like in your face chocolate)
I'll admit. I thought the banana flavor was a little out there for a request. I have yet to really hear of a banana wedding cake. If that's what she wanted... it's what she got. So I whipped up a banana flavoring from boiling sliced up bananas, brown sugar and rum.
Waaaay better than I expected!! It was a favorite of the bunch!
So what did the couple decide??
The top tier will be banana (the tier for them to share on the 1 year anniversary)
The second tier will be strawberry and chocolate (alternating layers)
The third will be just strawberry
The fourth will be just chocolate
All in all... Great decisions. This cake is going to be fab!
