I'll be explaining the evolution of the rewedding in a post soon, but for our new plans we need a much simpler dessert plan then I had before. I was looking around my inspiration files and on Maaartha and found these simple, yet yummy looking cakes. I'm hoping to have the cake made by the restaurant that we've chosen as a venue. They have a wonderful pastry chef and she makes wonderful orange cake, banana cream cake and out of this world chocolate cake as well. I'm not sure they really do "wedding" cake type cakes though, so I thought the simpler, the better. 

#1 is some sort of flourless torte I believe and would look pretty neat with a W on it. We could serve the venue's spectacular vanilla gelato with it.  #2 looks like it's one hell of a yummy chocolate cake and it pretty cute, but maybe too rustic? I'm leaning towards #3 with a few fresh ranunculus or garden roses instead of sugar flowers. We'd only need 2 tiers, maybe 3 at the most, but I still think it would be a beautiful cake. It could be orange cake on one tier and chocolate on the other, making something for everybody! #4 is just too cool looking to pass up, but I'm not sure how good it would really be. I keep thinking it would dry out. 

So, which would you choose?

#3 was our cake! With 2 over-sized magenta peonies! It was simple but stylish and b/c it didn't require a lot of aesthetic work, our baker made the cake that morning and it was DELICIOUS and so moist!

Well does it! I have to have the same cake as my name twin! Do you have pics yet of it? I'd love to see it with real flowers on it.

Oh man. Either #2 or #3. They both look amazing. I'm thinking #3 for you though. Your description of how you'd do it sounds amazing!
