Life is short, eat dessert first. Don’t you just love that saying? Unfortunately, this can’t technically happen at a wedding where there’s a cake to be cut, but I can’t deny my sweet tooth. And Ryan too… that boy can put away some cookies and ice cream! That being said, we are super excited for our first cake tasting this afternoon.
I want a nice cake, don’t get me wrong, but it doesn’t have to be extravagant. The most important thing is that it’s delicious, right?! I still (not so fondly) remember some weddings that had dry, tasteless cake… bleh! You may care that it’s pretty, but your guests are more concerned with how it tastes and that’s the truth. But hey, you don’t have to choose! I am completely inexperienced in the baking department so I can’t even imagine how much time and skill go into making these edible pieces of art.
A cake is a chance to show your personality, get creative, and even incorporate your wedding colors. I seem to be drawn to more simplistic and modern designs so I thought I’d share with you some of my current cake inspiration!
Last but not least, this one might take the cake… literally!! I’m in love with all of the patterns and textures, almost too pretty to eat!
Depending on the style of the cake, I would love to have a fun little cake topper. I’m loving the swirly look of the gold calligraphy and wouldn’t they make the perfect cake accessory?? There are so many options out there- cakes, cupcakes, donuts, & dessert bars. To all my married ladies out there, I’d love to hear any tips or advice on picking a wedding dessert for your guests. Now I just have to prepare my sweet tooth for this afternoon… wish us luck!!
