The easy part - Tasting the cake and deciding what kind of cake we wanted.
The hard part - Deciding what type of design we wanted on the cake.
Brian only cared about the actual cake part, not the design part so that responsibility fell on me. Our cake will be four tiers with the first and third tiers having a swirl pattern and the second and fourth tiers having a dot pattern. It will resemble something like this.
Once we had the basic idea of the cake figured out, there was one thing left. The cake topper.
I thought about flowers, I thought about rhinestone initials. I searched the internet forever. Nothing really stood out. Then I had the idea of using a family cake topper. My parent's cake topper is a little beat up and broken so I emailed my aunt to ask her about her's and my grandparents. She got right on it and sent me photos of what she had. I am still up in the air about what we will be doing - but I think there is a chance I will be using a family cake topper.

When I got to see the family cake toppers in person, they were WAY smaller than I thought. There is still 3 and 1/2 months to go, so I have some time before I have to make a final decision.
