Wedding Wednesday: Our Cake & Cupcakes

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

This week seems to be flying by. I can't believe tomorrow is already Thursday! 
As promised I'm going to show you the draft of our wedding cake and cupcakes. I say draft because this isn't final and I already know I'm going to make changes. 

Out of the previous Wedding Wednesday cake posts which you can find here (where I discuss questions I asked my cake designer) and here (I show my cake inspirational pictures), this is the cake I showed our designer to go off of:



I liked everything to this cake besides the bottom layer, it just wasn't going to work with the flowers and as you guys know I'm not huge on flowers in my wedding. 

This is a draft of our cake:
(I apologize I didn't get time to scan them in so I just took pictures with my camera)

I will be adding a fourth layer in between the bow and the ribbon that will be just plain with the silver sequin ribbon.
The bottom layer will be 2 layer and the flavor right now is vanilla with amaretto mousse (this will be the layer we cut into for our guests). It's designed with the pin tuck look and silver sequins between each cross hair with the bling ribbon.
The middle layer is 3 layer with chocolate and cookies and cream filling. This layer will be a ribbon fondant with the bling ribbon. 
The top layer (which is ours to keep) is 2 layer with the chocolate and cookies and cream. This is designed with a fondant bow with the bling ribbon. 
I know what you're thinking with the fondant, but her fondant is absolutely amazing and is a THIN layer with butter cream underneath. It was the best fondant I've ever tasted and you guys know I'm picky about my desserts. 

We are also going to have cupcakes. Our first cupcake will be chocolate with a peanut butter filling. It will have the flower icing tip as pictured below but it will not be in a tea cup or with the purple ball on top. 

Instead it will have this beautiful carnation ruffle flower on top of each cupcake. It will go with the ruffle layer on our cake.

For our second cupcake, it will be chocolate with Bailey's filling inside. I don't have a picture of that cupcake, but how I designed it, it will be a ruffle tip icing topped with a fondant bow with silver pearl beads. 
It will look similiar to this:

The liners will be silver with this type of lace cupcake liner.

I'm SO excited about this cake and cupcakes. I haven't decided on a stand yet, our cake designer has a few but not sure if I like them, but we'll see. 

Have a great night!

Oh it's going to look gorgeous! I really miss wedding planning. I was stressed during the planning, but was sad once it was over! I hope you're enjoying it as much as possible.
