Customized Bride

Planning our wedding one custom at a time

Cake is a powerful food!* February 20, 2009

*It is has the power to bring people together!~ Jim Gaffigan

I love cake. Forget pies- just load up the buttercream and send it on my way. I don’t even care what kind of cake. Carrot cake, chocolate cake, red velvet cake, yellow cake. As long as it doesn’t have anything too weird in it (e.g. fruitcake or- ew- nuts), then send it on my way.

So, in planning a wedding, the cake is the #2 thing, second only to invitations, that I am really drooling over. I have barely even thought about the dress, but I’ve looked at 1000 photos of cakes. And I think I’ve found the one:

I love absolutely everything about it! The shape, the dots, the ORANGE! (Oh heavens how I love orange.) I’d say, though, that we’ll probably put pysanky-related fondant on the cake, or maybe not. But I just love this cake. (And the cake stand! Wow, gorgeous. I am now actively on the search for one just like this one!) ETA: I think I found the cake stand! Here. Now, do you think it’s the large one or the medium one?

What do you all think? Too weird and nontraditional or modern cool?

    Modern cool. Love the dots, and the orange! But I definitely like the idea of a pysanky design for your cake!!

    Great cake! I would ask the cake baker what size stand you should get. I would assume the larger one. You could reuse the stand, too!

    That’s a good suggestion. I am going to try to hit some bakeries this weekend with my mom, so I will be bringing that photo as Exhibit 1 and I will ask them. They will probably think I am a totally picky bride!
