Booking the Baker: Honey’s Cakes

It’s official we have booked our wedding cake! πŸ™‚

And as you probably guessed from my raving review… we went with Honey’s Cakes by Nancy Cortez

And I present to you the sketch of our beautiful cake design…

If you notice there are a few minor changes to the overall design. For instance we have decided to go with a 4-tier 140 pcs wedding cake. Therefore we have removed the tier with the bow. It will consist of a top 6″ tier of banana and cream cheese filling, followed by 8″ and 10″ tiers of Italian creme and raspberry mousse and the bottom 14″ tier with the ever delicious and amazing banana and cream cheese πŸ™‚ I am dying to eat more of this cake!

Our groom’s cake will follow the original design except at the 80 pcs size and will be Luke’s favorite of chocolate with fresh strawberries and creme.

We will also have 2 matching sheet cakes one in the chocolate and strawberries & creme and the other in mandarin and pineapples & creme (that one’s for mom).

In total we got 420 pcs and could increase by another sheet cake once rsvp’s have come in…

And the grand total…


at $1.90 a slice I’m happy b/c Nancy’s buttercream frosting is TO DIE FOR!!!
