    I loved the design of ours but our baker did it nothing like what we had talked about. I’ll post the picture we had talked to her about- it was a fondant with lace overlay and they just slapped pieces of icing on it! And they made the grooms cake the same as the brides cake when it should have been a chocolate and strawberry… and they forgot the other chocolate sheet cake. And they couldn’t make a dog out of cake so we had to use a figurine next to the cake. Basically they were HORRIBLE!! Which is sad because we have used them for the past 5 years on different events and never had a problem with them until now! sorry about the rant but in terms of changing the design i originally wanted, i wouldn’t i loved it!

    1st pic.. what the cake should have looked like

    2nd pic… what the baker showed up with

    3rd pic… how the florist fixed it (I told him to put as many flowers on it to cover it up as he could!!)

    4th pic.. groom’s cake (dog is figurine because they couldn’t make it out of cake for some reason!)

    Thanks! My husband is a coffee freak. He was completely surprised by it and most people didn’t even realize it was a cake!

    I was 95% happy with our final cake design.  There were nit-picky things I would have changed.  But overall, I loved it.  And it tasted delicious, which was the most important part to us because we’re foodies.

    I wouldn’t change the design. My design was just what I wanted but unfortunately our cake decorator gave us something a lil different. I wanted clean lines, the quilting technique in the middle tier and the flowers to be out of cooked fondant so they can be hard like candy but unfortunately we got a puffy wedding cake, the quilting was sloppy and the decoration was not hard like candy but soft and it looked like it was melting. Thank god it was my wedding day and I was too busy with everything else because If it wasn’t so busy I would had cried for sure. 

    Brides-to-be PAY ATTENTION: Please ask your cake decorators to make you a miniature cake of what you want before you end up with a cake you might not be happy with.

    While I haven’t seen the finished product yet, I love our chosen cake design! It’s Publix’s ‘poster cake,’ the Simply Devoted. Ours will be identical to the picture, only slightly smaller and with different color flowers. We’ll use peach/pink spray roses, ivory hydrangea, rust hypericum berries, and orange freesia.

    Maybe you could do something like that for your shower instead of the wedding?

    When it came to our cake deisgn, I changed my mind about a million times during planning.  But I am SO happy with the one I ended up with and our baker did an amazing job!  It was 2 delicious flavors: chocolate opera creme and white chocolate raspberry romance mmmmmm 🙂  Here is our beauty…

    I think you should have exactly the kind of cake you want on your wedding day, and not conform to what is considered ‘weddingy’. The Polka Dot cake is awesome! Why not have it as your wedding cake?

    Champagne  bubbles wedding cake!

    This is one daughter’s cake and they wanted more of a celebration cake than anything else. The baker did a great job and it was delicious. Wouldn’t have changed a thing. We were worried she couldn’t make the sugar bubbles since she hadn’t done them since pastry school, but they were beautiful in the end and people were so impressed!

    This is the other cake, which I saw on here awhile back (but this is less tiers). The baker insisted it could only be done in fondant, but we told her to try and do it in buttercream..so she did. We think she did a beautiful job too, and this cake was luscious as well.

    I think if you’re having to look for a new baker anyway and you’re starting to change your mind about the design – why not?

    Maybe your new baker can do something that your last baker couldn’t. I’d see what their strenghts were and base the design off of that (like other people said some bakers can’t replicate what another has done).

    Ours were pretty simple (because I didn’t care that much and I didn’t want anything too elaborate).
