@SnowBunny420:  Thank you! We were very happy with it; it was much more than we thought/expected.

My awesome neighbour made our wedding cake! It was absolutely delicious, sponge with buttercream  and jam filling (my fave!).

 

shes just started making cakes to sell, but said that she’d love to give us the cake as our wedding present. It was a surprise( we agreed that she wouldn’t tell me details, etc before I saw it), but my husband and I were totally blown away!

My SIL made our cake – we wanted a non traditional cake and she took all of our iikes and incorporated them into this…yep – those are our dogs as well

@ReeRee06:  Yes, I did have to put it in the fridge (most books I read said any custard/cream based filling has to be refrigerated). I did take out the cake about 2 hours before the ceremony (I also set up our ceremony and reception decor myself … oy! Will definitely have a day of coordinator when I do our vow renewal)

I plan to make my own wedding cake 

This is just a trial and error cake, my brother and my SO wanted me to make a cake so I thought might as well get some practice in. 

This isnt what my cake is going to look like, on this cake I used icing from the grocery store. I plan to make my own Italian Meringue Buttercream icing which will go on the cake a lot smoother and not look so glossy like the one in the picture. The whole reason I tried it out is to see if a can get the look I want and I think I got pretty close. 

All these cakes are beautiful!

We didn’t have a traditional wedding cake – we had a dozen friends and family make all kinds of desserts and had a buffet. But we wanted to have cake toppers and feed each other cake so we used the confetti cake that my grandmother made. It’s nothing fancy but this is what she made for me and all my cousins on every birthday growing up, so it was special – and super yummy!
