A Yummy For Y'all

Today is my one year anniversary of wedded bliss to the most wonderful man – the man of my dreams. He's my heart and soul. In honor of this special occasion, I wanted to share a truly YUMMO Yummy with y'all:  Delicious Cakes – the creators of my super spectacular and SWEET (read with expression, please!) wedding confections!

Delicious Cakes was/is ah-MAZING. They were, by far, our most impressive wedding vendor to work with – kind, easy, fun, fair and beyond reliable. Cake is my (and ELC's!) favorite part of any wedding. My wedding cake just had to be fabulous. It was… and then some!

My awesome Dad went with me to the cake "planning session” (Mom had to work and was heartbroken she couldn't go – try to imagine. Free cake samples.  It was surely a 3-Diet Dew day!) We had a blast sampling the different flavors and talking about the design with Leia (the magnificent Southlake location manager) and her terrific team. It was truly a special evening. I cherish those memories with Dad by my side.

Instead of a groom's cake, we had, you guessed it, CUPCAKES! Not just any cupcakes, though. They were triple chocolate cupcakes with a hint of cinnamon. And the frosting? Double fudge. Need I say more? In the words of Rachel Zoe, "I die."

Here are a few pictures from my wedding, with my "Princess" cake taking center stage (as it should be):

One super cool "perk" of using Delicious Cakes is that instead of having to eat yucky, freezer-burned cake a year later for your anniversary, they will gift you a fresh "top layer!" Look how cute and scrumptious ours is:

If you live in/around the DFW Metroplex, you mustn't hesitate to call on Delicious Cakes for all of your cake-y needs!

Gotta scoot. Hubs and I are meeting in the kitchen in a few to eat that top layer. It’s all about priorities, People!

Congratulations on your one year! Oh yes, I remember how beautiful the wedding and reception and bride were but I also remember how really yummy the cake was. I can't believe it has already been a year!

Thank you so much, Sweet CeeCee. From the bottom of my heart! It's hard to believe it's already been a whole year. I keep asking Hubby if he'll let me plan a vow renewal. He just laughs and shakes his head. LOL. I just hate to see my veil sit in a box in the closet. It needs to be worn again!

P.S. Guess what we ate for dinner last night?! Cake! Yep. It was literally our entire dinner.

Smooches.

Thank you, doll-ing Sunny! You are too cute! Guess what I did as SOON as I walked in the door from work yesterday? I ate another slice of cake. Luckily (or unfortunately), there's only one piece left. I'm on a race to beat Hubs to it... Ha!

Hugs.
