Our reception package from Dockside includes the 1st tier of the cake. I really liked the idea of the three tier cake because of the look that comes with it, and the ability to dress it up using different components. So we decided to contact The Cake Studio and Casa Del Cakes to see what they offered and what flavours they had.

We then popped in on the way home to The Cake Studio at Sans Souci. We then dropped in on one of FH's friends and got him to be the victim of our cake overload with us. We had about 10 samples all up and some of them were very rich tasting, some drier and others very very moist. But most of them all very delicious. It was decided that Casa Del's Cakes were much moister and yummier so emailed Maria and started working out what our cake flavours were going to be.

Our flavours are: Red Velvet with Chocolate Ganache for the top layer, Sticky date for the middle layer and Caramel for the bottom layer. It's going to be sooo yummy.

I thought it was quite sweet because last week I turned 31 and FH was at the supermarket and he found some cupcakes with the Red Velvet flavour, so I was a busy bee in the kitchen making yummy cupcakes. So glad we chose the red velvet as it tastes fantastic! On the left is a photo of a red velvet ganache, similar to what our top layer will look like inside..
