Our first cake tasting was extremely last minute. We had a couple of other appointments booked, and time to kill in between. We decided to stop at Cappuccino's Bakery and Cafe to see if they had an available appointment. Luckily, someone had just cancelled.
We sat down with the owner, Paul. He told us about their flavors, pricing, and everything else we would need to know. He brought out a few cakes to test and they were amazing. Mr. Newport and I originally thought we'd just go with a vanilla on vanilla cake. It is our favorite, but after trying the flavors at Cappuccino's I'm completely indecisive.
As it was last minute, I wasn't prepared, so I thought I'd share one of my favorite photos of their work, from their website.
We first tried a white cake with strawberries and cream, and a white cake with mocha fudge and Bailey's Irish Cream filling. They weer both amazing, but oddly I was in lvoe with the white cake with strawberries and cream. One of my only pre-requisettes for a wedding cake was NO fruit fillings. I have never eaten a cake with fruit filling that I've liked. This cake totally switched my perspective. It was so light and delicious.
Next we moved on to my favorite type of cake- yellow. We had a yellow cake with lemon custard filling and a yellow cake with rasberry mousse filling. Again I was in love with fruit filled cake.
Lastly, we tried chocolate cake filled with chocolate mousse, and chocolate cake filled with mocha fudge. I've never really liked chocolate cake, so I had to turn to Newport Mom who is a chocolate cake lover for an opinion. She loved it, but we both agreed that the white cake with strawberries and cream was unbelievably delicious.
Now I have no clue what to do about the cake flavor. I really thought this would be an easy choice. Mr. Newport and I both love vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. We thought it was no brainer on the flavor choice. I guess now we'll have to go to another tasting together to figure it out.
Did you go with your favorite cake flavor, or did you change your mind after trying something delicious at a cake tasting?
