This Takes the Cake...



You have to click here to see the most ridiculous wedding cake ever!  Can you imagine having a wedding cake that is made to look just like you?  When David & I got married, I wanted to make sure it wasn't just "my day."  I asked him to help me choose the colors, cake, etc.  We also helped each other choose attendants... I have a lot of guys in my family, he has a lot of girls.  This bride obviously didn't mind the day being all hers.  

For those of you who aren't married, here's something that saved "us" (really my parents) a little bit of money.  Rather than buying a "fancy" cake big enough to feed two hundred fifty people, we bought one that would feed 130 (I think).  In the back, the caterers had cut up another cake that had the same design,the same flavor, and was made by the same place, it was simply a sheet cake.  So, it saved us at least $150-200.  

A couple people made comments about how there was enough cake for everyone, even though the cake looked a little bit smaller than they thought it would.  Other than that, no one seemed to notice.  We got our cake from Publix... if there is one in your area, we were very pleased!  

Also, I went back and forth about having a bride/groom figurine on the top of the cake that I could keep forever.  I am so glad that I went with the fresh red roses, though... I think it really made it stand out.

I looked up tulip banner pictures on google:) to answer your question.

I love your cake! We did the same thing with ours--had sheet cakes. I had a big pretty silver "S" on the top of mine that sits on my shelf in my living room now. I love it!

That is so weird - I would never want a whole cake that was a replica of me! Besides, I don't think I would like people eating me. :-D

Your cake was beautiful! I love the roses! And like you said, you have a little figurine that you can hold on to for the rest of your life! :-)

By the way, thank you for your response about the signature. I will try it! :-)

Oh, I realized you had asked how I did my banner not where I got the pic....I went to layout under the page set up...go under header and edit...you can add a picture if you want to.

Great idea! That's a very thrifty ides for saving mom and dad money.

Oh yea and your cake was simply lovely.
I went to the link and view THE cake, and all I could think of is how full of herself she was. Wow, how embarrassing, although it was a great likeness.

Wow! I bet that cake wasn't easy to make, and it probably cost a lot, too! I read a story on a website that told about this girl who ended up paying $3,500 for a wedding cake that was a small replica of the Eiffel Tower!
