The top was my inspiration picture – a few places quoted me $750+ to make it. Then I found a local lady who makes cakes out of her basement who said she could do something similar for $350 total, including a sheet cake….I wasn’t expecting too much but she made this beautiful cake and made all the flowers and shells by hand! The cake was DELICIOUS and moist as well, I was so happy – these pictures don’t even do it justice. The cake stand is from an old fallen tree on our farm that a family friend made into a stand – I loved it!

Love these!!

My inspiration was done with fondant, and I was soo set on sticking to it, but then at our bridal sampling I realized their whipped cream/buttercream hybrid icing was out of this world amazingly delicious, so I had to stick with that.. Results look a bit different, but I loved it. 🙂

@ThinkingOutLoud:  Thank you!! So is yours! I LOVE the leaves and flowers! We got married in the woods, so your cake would have been a perfect fit. 🙂

I’m not particularly crazy about flowers, but I loved the piping at the bottom.

When I saw a picture of this cake on our bakery’s website I immediately squealed and knew it was the one. Totally what I had in mind.  🙂
