Hello my bees,
So last month, I did cake tasting and we thought we had it all figured out well my Fi and I were not happy and the reason i could tell is we still haven’t even ordered it we have the quote and everything but never called in yet. lol
We decided the cake we had our eyes set on was not what we really liked then we found what we really really want really badly!! And of course there is always those family members that are fighting us on it right now. lol
All i can really do is laugh because yes its not traditional, but its simple, its rustic style, its “us”. Its totally is us! lol Not to mention it will go with our rustic/vintage theme.
I just don’t want to keep arguing about it with the family folks lol. (FYI grams has no idea because she will seriously blowup about it, she is the one that said if we didn’t have a wedding cake by Nov 1 she was goign to pick it out and design it however she wanted, talk about old school much. lol)
Anyways here is the cake style that we really love and everyone is fighting us on , We don’t want any of the flowers lol we are desging it our way but this is just an idea for you guys:
thanks for letting me vent 😀 you bees are the bestest! lol

Do you know what flavor you want for the cake? It is definetly different compared to traditional cakes.

@FutureMuniz: I do not necessarily want to discourage you and your FI from something you two really like, but IMO it looks unfinished. Perhaps there is a compromise sytle that is more rustic, but more visually appealling. When I think rustic/vintage….the following cake comes to mind.
But if you love it and do not care what your family thinks, then go for it!

@bmo88: Lol yah we heard that one that it looks unfinished but we are not icing people and we really can’t have fondant of any kind on the actual cake due to freezing purposes. So this was just perfect for us! lol. We had a similar style thats what the quote was for lol we just haven’t put it in because its not really what we want. But thanks!! 😀 lol

@FutureMuniz: You do know that smooth beautiful cakes can be created with just buttercream. Ours will be buttercream and it looks very nice and is edible.

If you are determined to do the no icing thing, perhaps having smaller layers with more icing in between or with powdered sugar or try different colored layers. It might with help with the more finished look….I actually like the second and third cakes below quite a bit 🙂

I wouldn’t pick that cake for my wedding, but I do think it looks awesome. I doubt anyone will think “gee, I wonder why the baker forgot to frost the cake” so I wouldn’t worry about it looking unfinished. If that’s the cake that you guys want by all means get it!

Personally I love white cake without frosting. It yours wedding for you and FI, everyone else is just a guest. Order what you want and tell anyone who asks that it is taken care of, and you are excited to get something that says you and FI and they can see it on your wedding day.
i don’t mean to sound snooty, I have spent too many years people pleasing others. I have come to a point that you stand for something or fall for anything.

Call me crazy, but I actually really like that cake. Its fun and if it goes with your colors, even better!

I think anytime in wedding planning that something jumps out at you and screams, “That’s us!” you should go for it. I love details that really reflect the bride and groom!

Hmm as a baker this cake would stress me out because I cant make it ahead as it would go stale. It is very cool if your baker is willing to do it.

I think it’s cool! Too much icing is just sickly sweet anyway!

Go for it! It’s a great idea. My FH & I are thinking about doing cupcakes because we want something different, but I love the idea of these cakes too. especially the one with the thin layers and the fruit… the first one bmo99 posted… that looks awesome!

@FutureMuniz: your cake made me hungry lol… I actually like it, it’s unique :).
If you’re removing the flowers, I think you should add something maybe cinnamon pieces (which looks like wood) to decorate it a little, so it wouldn’t look just a weird unfinished cake, and more like a rustic, different, modern cake (:
