Our cake was modern and minimalistic (so not really traditional white on white but nothing really that “different” like a topsy-turvey design).  Everyone loved it!  (It probably helped that it tasted great and the pieces were huge!)  The cake was one of my top priorities for the wedding – I really wanted something that my husband and I would love and would fit us.  I would definitely go with something you and your fiance love!

We haven’t officially decided yet, but I’ve been drawn to simple, white, one or two tier cakes since I started looking around. I’m not much of a cake person, so something plain with a homemade touch is very appealing to me. The buttercream frosted cakes look so tasty! 🙂

My Aunt has a cake shop so I’m getting quite the cake.  She’s asked for my thoughts and I’ve given them but she’s the one going all out.

Here’s what I think I’m getting at this point:  5 tiers with champagne glasses instead of regular pillars, ribbon, jewels, snow flakes.  It sounds very busy but the sketch is beautiful.

Because of the size the cake will be fake and I’m doing cupcakes.  I chose the cupcakes because I’m doing a cocktail reception and it would be easier to eat that way.

Cakes are such a great way to add something ‘different’ to your wedding.  Do what suits your theme and what is within the budget.

We had a fairly traditional cake. We added our own flair a bit with sugar flower clusters and some custom toppers though. 

What about a compromise? A white cake with coloured piping decor?

@mrschristmas: I was thinking of asking a friend to make the cake too! If she did, she would just make something small for the cake cutting, and we’d have a dessert buffet (pies and ice cream…yum) so the guests could choose what they’d like.
