We’re going to serve mediterranean food.
Originally, I wanted a naked wedding cake with each tier being a different flavor. And I wanted to also include some baklava on the side or something….then I thought maybe my wedding cake can be baklava. (imagine this in 2 or 3 tiers: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/–q2kfB5w1Fs/UU3hIHQHwUI/AAAAAAAAK1g/9mFF7p6GroU/s1600/baklavacake2.jpg i think it looks really nice)
Do you think we should also provide other desserts? Or was my first idea better, cake with a side of baklava.

Oh my god that looks like heaven…… gotta show the picture to my Future Mother-In-Law so she can make one of those! (she’s middle eastern and makes some delicious baklava….).
I’d say go for the baklava cake! It is awesome!

Do it! It is so unique and different! I would also have a few other options, dessert-wise, for those who (gasp!) don’t like Baklava, or have a nut allergy.

Oh my gosh, quite literally drooling right now. That looks amazing!! The ONLY thing that I can think of is that the tiers might be a bit of an issue when it comes to actually serving it.
I would say that it would have to be engineered so that the tiers would actually come apart for cutting – I manned the baklava sundae booth at my church’s food festival several years ago…and baklava is difficult to manage without being pre-cut.
I think it’s an awesome idea though! You could also do several one tier baklavas on stands, and that might look nice as well. (Serve it will ice cream…trust me!)

rosecut: That looks amazing! And maybe serve with ice cream? Yaaaaasss! I would just suggest that you offer another dessert as lots of people are allergic to nuts. More baklava for the rest of us! 😀

🙂 so glad everyone loves it
does anyone have any other dessert suggestions that would go with with baklava?
so far we’re serving baklava with berries and icecream (pistachio and vanilla)

OMG that sounds amazing! *drool* What about another middle eastern pastry… maybe one of the little dumpling things soaked in honey? (I can’t remember the name, I’m sorry.) I also think a really rich, not too sweet, chocolate something (mousse? flourless cake? something along those lines) might be a nice contrast. You could use the berries and ice cream with both to tie it all together.

I think those are just donuts – loukoumades. That’s a very popular dessert.
Or I can just serve icecream to those who don’t want baklava. But maybe having donuts on the table would be nice.
