Cake Tasting (aka the third most awesome reason to eat cake --first being the actual wedding cake, 2nd your birthday)

Those names alone? Oh please, don't get me started.
Hopefully there's a cupcake somewhere around here to appease me.
Because that might be the best cake I've wrapped my tongue around.
Now begins the gratuitous cake picture post:
Don't you LOVE how they decorated each mini-cake?
Also? I LOVE how they used the label-maker to mark each flavor.
That is a pastry chef after my own heart!
Who needs cupcakes - we need to get on this mini-cake trend!

Go have your cake, and eat it too!
