would it be weird (in pictures) if the cake was white & the dress was ivory or vice-versa?
we want to do a ‘champagne bubble’ cake and are trying to decide which color it should be!
(i refuse to tell the boy even the color of my dress, so i’m left to deal with this one alone…)
Am i way over-thinking this???

It depends on what kind of frosting that you want. If you want buttercream you will have to go with Ivory as buttercream cannot be white (or it isn’t real buttercream).

HAHAHA! Since I’m the only one (so far anyway) that said the cake should match your dress I guess I’m an over-thinker too.

I don’t think you are overthinking it, however if you don’t really care whether it’s white or ivory why not have it to match your dress? If you decide to go with the opposite you could always add some color to differentiate the two. I know I’m probably in the minority on this one.

from the pictures i like the ivory one better, i dont think it has to match your dress at all… have you considered doing an ivory cake with white bubbles on it… that might be pretty 🙂 … oh and buttercream is yummier so i say ivory buttercream regardless of the cake lol!

The only thing the cake has to be is yummy in your tummy! Your tastebuds aren’t gonna care what colour that delicious thing is 😀

We did one a little differently(champagne bubble cake) for my daughter’s wedding last month,but it was fondant with additional color and the blown sugar bubbles. Everything was in ivory,so she made the cake the same. I’m sure no one will notice if its white or ivory…get the one you like the best! Here’s ours…

I like the first picture, ivory on ivory, the best. Champagne isn’t bright white, it’s champagne. Regardless of the color, it’ll look fine with your dress.

Since you don’t seem to have a strong preference for one color of cake I think you should go ahead and make it match your dress.
Now, for example, if you had a white dress but had your heart set on an ivory cake – teh I’d say to go ahead and do it. But since you don’t seem to really care about one color in particular, why not just make it match your dress?

My dress is Ivory and so is my cake but the reason behind the cake is because I went with buttercream and thats the color of buttercream:) I think If you love the cake it doesnt matter what color it is. And that it taste good..

god knows – if other brides dont think it matters, the average wedding guest will never even think about it!
we ended up picking white only because we’re doing fondant and i saw the ivory fondant and felt it was a little too yellow for my taste… plus we were worried about the color getting muddled with our room lighting and white wont get ‘muddy’.
if it was a day wedding, natural light, etc, i totally would have wanted to find an ivory fondant that worked because i think they ivory cakes are so pretty and agree that they are more champagne-ish…
the boy doesnt know if that matches my dress or not but it was nice to take that piece out of the equation 🙂

No one will notice or care that they are different colors. Most people are aware that icing is impossible to make pure white. On the day of the wedding, you will be so concerned with other things that even you won’t care or notice. There is nothing to worry about. Get a yummy cake and move on to the next detail.
