Best Part of Wedding Planning

Everyone says that cake tasting is the best part of wedding planning. We would agree. On both days the weather was great and I was back from India for two weeks. It was really nice to be home and especially nice to hang with Ash doing something you can’t really complain about. We went to four places, Katrina Rozell (Oakland), Neldha’s (Oakland), Walnut Creek Bakery, Montclair Bakery (oakland).

Katrina Rozelle was a small bakery in the Rock Ridge area of Oakland. The cakes were really moist and airy. The creams and fillings were very nice. We both liked the Valencia, a light chocolate cake with a hint of orange.


These were the specs that I drew out for Ash. We designed it together after our first tasting. Ash liked it and I got nice reactions from people in the stores who saw it.


Montcalir Bakery, the last place we went to was the best suited for us. The Chef was able to make lenon and orange, a not so typical filling. Ash and I are both really excited and hope people like the cake!

Potential Wedding Location

People are probably wondering what Ash and I are doing for our wedding. Are we getting married in Hawaii, going to Boston, eloping in vegas… Short answer is we’re still searching and Hawaii is looking really probable at this point. Ashley’s friends have been such a great help. Especially Cathy has been awesome in helping us look around and make calls and get our friends to pitch in. I have yet to really get to know her, last time i was in Hawaii, we barely hung out, me with a giant tooth ache most of the time. So here’s some nice pic of Kahala Mandarin in Oahu.
