I love it! I have a Dorothy Gale decorated bedroom, at our beach house, complete with a witch’s feet doorstop. It looks pricey, though. Have you asked for the $$?

MissBettsy:  That cake is amazing!! It is truly a work of art.

Our cake, while not nearly as fancy or fantastic as the one you posted, probably qualifies as unusual.

We had a shoestring budget for our wedding, so we couldn’t go super fancy on the cake. But, we had a sort of Vietnamese / Asian theme for the wedding (because my husband is Vietnamese), so we tried to carry different design elements through the color scheme and bridesmaid dresses, table decor, etc. So, we had a dragon on our cake. I did the drawing of it based on an image from a Vietnamese children’s book, and our bakery designed the cake from my drawing. My dad made the cake topper for us, and I painted it. We couldn’t afford a super fancy one at the time, and I was shocked at how expensive they were. Plus, none of them showed interracial couples. This was back in 1998 … and choices then were much more limited than they are now — LOL. My friend gave me the bride and groom statue as a gift, and I realized it was perfect for the topper. So, we used it.

Sorry … it’s not the greatest picture, but it’s the only one I have of the cake in color. All of our wedding photos were in black and white.

Here’s my daughter’s from 4 years ago, and I think it was pretty unconventional! Champagne bottle topper with blown sugar bubbles…

We had jelly beans and Jolly Ranchers, and green punch! It was a little cake, but that was ok, it was a little wedding! And it is so fun to see everyone’s cakes!

MissBettsy:  No photos handy. Won’t be going to the beach for another month. I’ll try to get a photo – the room is small. At least I’ll make a list of what’s in there, and message you. The furniture is my grandparent’s bedroom set, from the 20s. I have things a teenage girl would have had back then, as well as a few “souvenirs” from her trip to Oz.

I wish I could show you mine but the new bee has not saved my pics! Mine had little fondant cats on it, and kitty cake toppers!

I’m having a full on Tim Burton Nightmare Before Christmas/Corpse Bride inspired cake. I can’t find a picture even remotely close to what we are doing but it will definitely be non-traditional!

As a baker/pastry chef…..I LOVE BLOWN SUGAR! That is so cool. I also need to stop looking at cool posts on here because it is making me doubt some of my choices.
