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!

I have never had Publix cake but I just might have to try it sometime!  By The Way, my husband’s grandma lives down in Panama City!

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/
