Loved our cake!  It was a stucco-style cake with succulants 🙂  My DH picked it out!

Want to save money, and have a Cake that tastes great too ?

I agree with

@beachbride1216: go basic Buttercream, and then dress the cake up yourselves.

Personalized Cake Topper, Flowers, Ribbon, Candy, etc… lots you can do to dress up a basic cake.

We did a very unique Cake Topper…

Our cake had 3 layers 6-9-12… that would feed either 100 small pieces or 50 larger pieces… price was about $ 225.

Hope this helps,

My colors are black, white and cobalt so I’m thinking of doing the ribbon in the middle blue instead of black.

I made our cake topper so that we wouldn’t have to worry about decorating our cake too much.

Also commenting to follow! I don’t really like the taste of fondant, but I do love buttercream 🙂

This isn’t an exact photo, as our wedding is a little less than two months away, but here’s the cake design:

Modifications: We’ll have inverted champagne glass separators between the top and middle tiers; some of the purple wedding flowers in our bouquets placed strategically on top (instead of the ivory roses there now), near the separators, and down; and an ivory ceramic dancing couple cake topper. 

Cake flavor/filling/frosting: White almond/seedless raspberry/almond buttercream.

@Hippos:  I also want buttercream but my baker is adamant that it won’t work because if its too cold it’ll go rock solid (its a December wedding but it’ll be indoors) anfit he decoration will just slide off the cake otherwise. I was wondering if you experienced that with your cake?

This is what I’m wanting!

@Rachael1287:  My wedding was in May so I don’t know if would turn solid….but I just can’t think of a situation that your cake would be exposed to cold weather long enough for it to freeze. Unless you are having an outside wedding in December…
