Adventures in Cake Land


The "Cake Guy" was our first appointment in San Diego. We drove all day so we were pretty wrecked by the time we arrived. Just stepping out of the car in La Jolla made me completely forget the long journey by car and I was instantly transformed into a happy tourist. There were cute boys with surf boards and pretty surfer girls in bikinis...how I miss living in a tourist town.

The Cake Guy (self proclaimed) welcomed us with a pretty white pastry box filled with cakes and pastries from their retail shop. He knew we had come a long way so he wanted to stock our hotel room for us! So cute!

The actual tasting was a blur. Neither my FI or I really are cake lovers so this was the easiest appointment yet! We pretty much decided on what we didn't like first...which was pretty easy. We ended up picking "Bridal Chiffon" which is cake with a layer of lemon cream and a layer of raspberry. So pretty!

Our other two layers we decided on without even tasting them. The Cake Guy told us his wife's fav cake is their fudge filling and fresh bananas...we love both so we went with it.

The cake is three layers and all ivory with white decoration. We didn't pick one of their standard designs. The Cake Guy took a picture I had torn out of a magazine and transformed it into exactly what we wanted! An eclectic ivory and white vintage style cake. The Cake Guy kept my magazine page so I have nothing to share with you lovlies...only two months to go!

Thank you to Flour Power in San Diego for an awesome cake experience! The Cake Guy entertained us for almost an hour with hilarious celeb sightings, wedding stories and all his adventures. It isn't often you meet such amazing and thoughtful people like him.

Back to the Bachelorette...

My favorite fruit is banana--nice choices!
Also, you look pretty cute for someone who was in the car all day! I'm totally jealous, after the grape vine my whole face sags from exhaustion.

Can't wait to hear about the rest of your weekend.
