Mine’s going to be straight off the cover of Martha Stewart Weddings. Don’t tell tho, it’s a secret. ^_^ It’s just so perfect for our wedding that I had to have it!

Here is mine, hopefully the flowers will be a little more coral colored and not so pink.

Yeah, you can get the butterflies at Michaels or Hobby Lobby or anywhere, tho I’m getting mine offline to get all the colors. They’re on wires that you just stick in the cake. Might make cutting the cake a pain, but I’m also doing cupcakes so hopefully it won’t be a big deal. And the lady making it said it won’t be any problem to do it just like that. Only difference will be that we’re adding a ribbon of fondant at the base of each layer (each one a different color) so that the cake isn’t so completely white. I’m excited!

Here is my cake! I designed it myself, with inspiration from Martha Stewart. My favorite part of it was the flavors…the middle tier was white chocolate raspberry, and the top and bottom were coca-cola (chocolate cake soaked in cola). It. was. delicious.

Any Atlanta brides, pm me if you are interested in my baker. She did an excellent job and was affordable too. Her cakes are delicious! She has lots of interesting flavor combinations as well as traditional favorites. I am contriving as we speak how to get my hands on some more coke cake.

Ok for my DW we’re not having a formal reception. We just made reservations at a restaurant then after off to a club for dancing. So I wasn’t sure we were going to do cake but everyone said for pictures. Then I was thinking I’m afraid we could end up with the old school 80’s look and I make good cake so I’ll just make a small one myself…My fiance was very supportive… so personal too, he said; so I did my cake trial along with my make-up trial (another post..lol) this weekend. Ready for a laugh????

Not making my wedding cake apparently it requires a talent I don’t possess! It was a good time and laugh for us though!

Had cupcakes for me, and a little cake for the husband. Sneaky little Filipino ladies stole cupcakes from the back of the cupcake tree before we even cut the cake! Strangely, I didn’t get to eat any of it.

rnc 620- Thanks yummy too but sooo not worthy of pictures!

Now I’m wondering there’s a Costco over there (Puerto Rico) should I just get one of those Chocolate 2 layer round cakes and put flowers on top? I’m just caught up with the $$ on a cake for 17 of us, when I didn’t think it was even that important?

Here is mine! I didn’t even care about having a cake, but it came with the venue.  We ended up doing a cake tasting on a whim and I had ZERO ideas about what I wanted it to look like before we met with the baker, but we figured it out on the spot and it was crazy delicious.  White cake with 7 layers and alternating ganache and berry compote (not Jam) in between.  Soooooo tasty. 

Oh and the topper was a present my husband gave me on our 4 year dating anniversary, thinking it was a sweet gift before our wedding.  Little did we know it was a cake topper until we saw the same one sitting on the shelf at the bakery!!

Cake wasn’t high on my priority list, so I actually went through a local region chain grocery store with a great bakery.

I sent the decorator so photos and told her what color and she did the rest.

It was supposed to be red velvet, but the bakery screwed it up (it was nothing like at the tasting) it was basically chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse and truffle filling with buttercream frosting!  But people liked it.

@TMarie- We don’t want to spend a lot of money on cake either.  Neither of us are big cake eaters anyway.  We are going to do a few single teir cakes along with some other deserts on a table.  I think we’ll save money by going simple but we’ll still have some sweets for our guests 🙂

I loved the way our cake looked, but unfortunately our she sacraficed taste for design.  It did NOT taste the way it did at our tasting… but oh well.
