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.
