They weren't sure of the cake flavor and fluctuated between traditional vanilla and something different, so we did both. Darcie really wanted a flavor that Rick would like, but he's not really a cake fan. He did, however, recently try a chocolate cake that he liked, and said that he liked it because it was not too sweet. Rick is also a pretty big beer fan. Well, naturally I recommended the Guinness chocolate cake recipe that's been such a big hit in the past. So, the green tiers were the Guinness cake with vanilla buttercream, and the middle tier was traditional vanilla with vanilla buttercream.

Rick wanted to keep the top tier, but there was still plenty of cake to go around. The waiters at the restaurant were a little nervous about cutting the cake, so they asked that I do it. That was how I discovered that I am a more talented cake baker than I am a cake cutter, but oh well. Everyone got at least one slice, and there was still some left for the restaurant's waiters that did such a great job.

All-in-all, it was a really good day, and everything went very smoothly. Congrats again, guys!
