This was my inspiration pic…

But I apparantely wasn’t specific enough with my baker, who I discovered too late always uses buttercream unless you specfically say you want fondant (would have thought giving her a picture of a fondant cake would’ve been enough, but guess not), and this is what we got. It was cute…but not really the picture, I was kind of baffled because she did our shower cake and it was perfect! Oh well, it was still tasty and the guests didn’t know the difference.

Mine will look similar to this.  But 3 layers, and will have the beading at the base of every layer.  But the peony sugar flowers will be purple.  And I have two wooden bird toppers to stick out over the flower.

I haven’t had my wedding yet, but she has made some exactly like what I am describing for others, so I know it will look the same.

Since I had a specfic vision in mine, I sent the bakery our decorations (edible butterflies & ribbon) and a sketch of exactly what we wanted. Beyond that, we just discussed over the phone. They put everything together exactly how I wanted it. 🙂

Here is my initial inspiration:

Now, I wanted the mixture of this cake below on my “bride side”:

The “groom’s side”

(On his side, I just wanted the top layer repeated & the boots on top):


The end product: 

The only negative I had with it, was that the leaves didn’t look nearly as pretty as the inspiration (which the shop had actually made before.. /both groom and bride inspiration were made by this company but the first pic wasn’t).. also, the leaves were supposed to be wrapped around the boots. But, considering that they had an extra layer on the cake, there might not have been enough room.
