The bakery we ordered our Wedding Cake from gave us an anniversary cake in exchange for a photo of our wedding cake~not a bad trade! This is a white cake with Fruit Basket Filling, Whipped Cream Frosting and White Chocolate Shavings which is what we chose for the largest (bottom) layer of our wedding cake.
What a wonderful tradition! I think we'll order one every year.
I've ordered John's birthday cakes from The Bread Basket in Camarillo, CA, every year. Next weekend, we'll be celebrating his birthday with a chocolate cake with Raspberry filling and Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting and mixed Chocolate Shavings~I'll be sure to post a photo! In the meantime, here's a picture of our Wedding Cake!
