When we were in New Orleans last month, we selected our wedding cake. While many couples aren't thinking wedding cakes 10 months prior to the big day, we needed to get this taken care of on this trip as I am not sure Gabe will be making it back to the Big Easy prior to the big day.
Part of our reception agreement included a wedding cake from Haydel's Bakery. Haydel's is widely known for their famous King Cakes during Mardi Gras but they also make award winning wedding cakes. There were so many designs to choose from and you could customize the one you chose from there. The first decision we needed to make was filling. There were multiple flavors including chocolate, raspberry, pistachio, butter cream, Irish cream, strawberry, lemon and I know I am forgetting a few.
We have not decided on the colors of the flowers yet - I think the deep plum would be too drastic all over so I am thinking of a combination of the colors scheme. I may have to play around with photoshop to see if I can make an example before submitting the final decision.
