Unlike most people, I’m not a pastries-type person! I’d rather have some hard candy rather than a cake or a pie! However, my favorite cake is Publix cake! They’re not too sweet, not to tart! They are always just right! Well, as many of you might know, Publix is a supermarket here in Florida, similar to a Kroger! Even though I’ve never had one of their wedding cakes, I’m sure a Publix cake will be just as good as a cake made by a bakery…. Right? Where are you buying your cake?
Also, since my colors are tiffany blue and cherry, I would like those colors on my cake! What do you think?

I love those colors together!
I’m making our cake, and a few other layer cakes. I’m doing buttercream frosting and probably a few real flowers on top. I’m still in the midst of trial cakes, so I haven’t figured out my decorating limitations yet!

Cakes from grocery stores can be just as delicious! We haven’t chosen our bakery yet, but I hadn’t even thought about getting cake from Kroger or something. Thank you for the reminder of that option.

those are SO cute! my husband is a manager of a catering company (that in itself is AWESOME for our wedding! lol) and his boss does cakes as well – not super fancy – but simple. 3 tier square with a ribbon around it. this way we don’t have to pay a bakery for our cake!
and i LOVE that third one!

Mmmm I love pretty much everything from Publix!!
A retired lady is making our cake right out of her house. 3 tier, white almond with raspberry filling and white buttercream icing. She makes a mean cake, and for super cheap!

My Future Mother-In-Law is baking our cake. We weren’t going to have one except we still needed something to cut, so my Future Mother-In-Law said she’d be honoured if we let her do it. The pictures above are exactly what I’m having her make. Just smooth buttercream, ribbon and some flowers!

WOW! Thanks for the ideas! I never thought about having someone other than a bakery or a supermarket make the wedding cake! I will definitely try to find a baker, who makes cakes, to prepare our cake! Thanks!

I will be making my own cake. Yes I know… crazy, but hey to save a couple hundred bucks and being a pastry chef it’s a no brainer!

My baking is AWESOME, better than any bakery goods I’ve ever had (and my family and friends agree), and I often dream of opening my own bakery, but unfortunately I just can’t imagine baking my own cake the day before my wedding. So Vegan Treats (best vegan bakery in the east!) will be doing our cake. http://www.vegantreats.com/
