Let Them Eat Cake

Amy Cakes, where have you been all my life? Darren and I had our cake tasting with Amy Cakes on Wednesday, and I must say, if there is ever a time to be in love with a food, it is now. You know how there are some cakes that are beautiful  but they taste really dry? And then there are some that taste amazing but they're really not very pretty?? Well, Amy Cakes provides us with the best of both worlds. For those of you who didn't know, Amy Cakes is the one who made my niece Harper's first birthday cake. So cute!
When I saw and tasted this cake I knew I had to have Amy make my wedding cake. We got to sample four different cakes, and I think we are going to have a strawberry cake with strawberry puree for two tiers, and a chocolate mocha cake with espresso mousse for the other two (is anyone really surprised I chose a coffee cake flavor??????).  As for the cake design, it is beautiful and exactly what I had in mind. 
Picture pearlized diamonds from the bottom tier of this cake.....

And the flower tier from this cake......
I would have uploaded the sketch that Amy drew for my cake, but I don't think that it would do the actual cake justice, so you will all have to wait until the wedding! 
Amy, you have made me realize that I no longer want to be a speech pathologist....I want to be a cake baker person (I can learn the correct lingo later). Thank you for allowing me to recognize my true calling.
P.S. I am coming to you for every cake I get for the rest of my life.
