Do you know what flavor you want for the cake?  It is definetly different compared to traditional cakes.

@FutureMuniz:  I do not necessarily want to discourage you and your FI from something you two really like, but IMO it looks unfinished. Perhaps there is a compromise sytle that is more rustic, but more visually appealling. When I think rustic/vintage….the following cake comes to mind.

But if you love it and do not care what your family thinks, then go for it!

@FutureMuniz:  You do know that smooth beautiful cakes can be created with just buttercream. Ours will be buttercream and it looks very nice and is edible.

If you are determined to do the no icing thing, perhaps having smaller layers with more icing in between or with powdered sugar or try different colored layers. It might with help with the more finished look….I actually like the second and third cakes below quite a bit 🙂

I wouldn’t pick that cake for my wedding, but I do think it looks awesome. I doubt anyone will think “gee, I wonder why the baker forgot to frost the cake” so I wouldn’t worry about it looking unfinished. If that’s the cake that you guys want by all means get it!

Personally I love white cake without frosting. It yours wedding for you and FI, everyone else is just a guest. Order what you want and tell anyone who asks that it is taken care of, and you are excited to get something that says you and FI and they can see it on your wedding day.

i don’t mean to sound snooty, I have spent  too many years people pleasing others. I have come to a point that you stand for something or fall for anything.

I think anytime in wedding planning that something jumps out at you and screams, “That’s us!” you should go for it. I love details that really reflect the bride and groom!

Hmm as a baker this cake would stress me out because I cant make it ahead as it would go stale.  It is very cool if your baker is willing to do it.

I think it’s cool! Too much icing is just sickly sweet anyway!

Go for it!  It’s a great idea.  My FH & I are thinking about doing cupcakes because we want something different, but I love the idea of these cakes too.  especially the one with the thin layers and the fruit… the first one bmo99 posted… that looks awesome!

@FutureMuniz:  your cake made me hungry lol… I actually like it, it’s unique :).

If you’re removing the flowers, I think you should add something maybe cinnamon pieces (which looks like wood) to decorate it a little, so it wouldn’t look just a weird unfinished cake, and more like a rustic, different, modern cake (:
