I love french macarons!! On our engagement photo session, our photographer introduced us to french macarons from Bouchon Bakery and thought it would be a fun and yummy prop for our shoot! I just had to include macarons in our wedding since those photos will be shown in our guestbook and slideshow. =)

Inspired by this cake, we will have a 4 tiered fondant cake similar to this: http://www.stylemepretty.com/2010/06/29/oregon-wedding-by-daniel-usenko/

We had our cake tasting last weekend with Carolyn Wong Cakes and had fun tasting lots of different flavors: (from top left to right) mocha, salted caramel mousse, chocolate raspberry, chocolate brownie, chocolate & vanilla, red velvet, tiramisu, cheesecake, vanilla lemon, white chocolate raspberry, blackberry & cream and raspberry lemon.

After eating every last crumb, we chose these cake flavors for our four tiers: White chocolate raspberry, salted caramel mousse, chocolate raspberry and red velvet...mmmmmmm!!!!

And here is our actual wedding cake!
