Being a blogger has brought me so many incredible opportunities, especially now that we’re getting married. A great example is when Seattle-based bakery Trophy Cupcakes reached out to be part of our big day! We’re lucky enough that they are going to provide the desserts for our wedding — YUM.

Then I realized I had no idea what we were doing… so I did some research and wanted to share some cake tasting tips for the future brides and grooms out there.
