Showered with Love: Cake Contest

See that sign in the background? It says “Best Wishes Ryan & Emily”. Bridesmaid Katie made that sign by cutting the letters out of pink paper. The amazing part is that she didn’t even draw the letters on the paper first, she just started cutting, even the ampersand. Very impressive. (For those font nerds out there, Sister Pineapple and I called the letters Comic Serif :) )

A couple days before the shower, Mom Pineapple and I baked mini wedding cakes for a cake-decorating contest. The morning of the shower my bridesmaids and I mixed up different colors of frosting and filled decorating bags. Then, each guest got a mini cake and we passed around the frosting.

I’m pretty sure this messy contest was a hit. We had prizes for the prettiest, most creative, most unusual, and most colorful cakes.

My Aunt Laurie won for most colorful cake. We wanted her to be able to win a prize no matter what her cake looked like, so Sister Pineapple and I made up the most colorful category after seeing her finished cake. She loves sprinkles! She’s a girl after my own heart.

Nana Pineapple won for most unusual because her cake was decorated with two hearts, but they were upside down. When I picked it to win the prize I assumed that the creator did it on purpose, but it turns out, not so much. Sorry Nana! :)

Bridesmaid Kim won most creative for her alien cake. She has been drawing this peanut-like alien for almost the entire time I have known her. It made several appearances in yearbooks as we grew up. Nice work, Kimmy.

Next up we have the prettiest cake, belonging to my friend Lisa. Lisa just got married, so she said she had spent a lot of time looking at cake designs recently.

And for the curious, here is a shot of my freckles and my cake. It’s plaid.

What is your favorite bridal shower game?

    That sounds like so much fun!

    I’d have to say that my favourite bridal shower game is the toilet paper dress game when you have enough people. At my bridal shower, we had about 10 different teams and it was HILARIOUS! Even my mum was one of the models and her skirt fell off while she was on the runway much to the amusement of everyone. But it’s so funny to see how creative people get!

    we did this for my best friend’s shower and it was a real hit with everyone. i have never known that group of women to be so fiercely competitive until then [it didn’t help that some of them were actual cake decorators to boot!].
