Last week was my very first cake testing and i was excited and nervous at the same time. As a baker you critique your own work and whenever i would take cakes or cupcakes to work and of course i'd get nothing but thumbs up. But showcasing my cupcakes for someone i don't know can be a bit nerve wracking. I knew the couple wanted to do cupcakes for their wedding and i was happy to do so. I found out that their favorite flavors were chocolate and vanilla. I decided to make chocolate, vanilla, lemon and marbled cupcakes to give a variety. The icings i used were vanilla, chocolate, chocolate ganache and lemon buttercreams.
The couple decided on chocolate with chocolate buttercream and vanilla with vanilla buttercream. The cake will also have a cake topper of a 6 inch cake in a quilted pattern with the couple sitting on top of the cake. I am very excited to do this cake next year. The couple themselves were super sweet and i hope their wedding day is a beautiful day without rain for them!
