Take My Sweater: It’s Cake Time!

Ahh, the moment everyone had been waiting for. Time to eat cake!



I don’t think there are enough words in the world to describe how much I adored this cake. It was exactly what we had asked for, and we were so happy with how pretty it looked—and how amazing it tasted!



We had several cake flavors and we weren’t quite sure how to communicate to our guests which ones were which. Luckily, as has been established many times before, Sister Cardy is a creative genius, and she came up with the perfect plan.


Simple, clear, and cute!

When it came time to actually cut the cake, I realized we had a slight logistical problem on our hands”¦


That would be me trying to explain to Mr. Cardigan that I am entirely too short to reach the cake! Luckily, we managed to make it work”¦



We managed to get a small slice, and we (very sweetly) fed each other. I had made it very clear to Mr. Cardigan before the wedding that there was to be no face-smashing!

I have to admit, I wasn’t sure if he was going to listen to me, so even up until the last few seconds I was reminding him that I did NOT want cake in my face!


Can you see the fear in my face? I was totally afraid he was going to mash it into my face at the last second!


Luckily, he was very sweet with the cake and didn’t get any on me. What a good husband. 🙂


That’s my “Oh my goodness this is SO GOOD” face. And there’s Mr. Cardigan going in for a second bite, because the first wasn’t enough.

We were oh so happy with the cake”¦but the important question is, were the KIDS happy with it? After all, they had been anticipating it much more eagerly than we were!


I’ll take that as a yes.

    One of the best looking cupcake ideas I’ve seen. LOVE the frame with the papers to indicate which is which. Congrats on a job well done!

    @belle320: No one else ate from the top tier, so we saved the rest of it! 🙂

    I have literally told my fiance that if he smashes cake in my face, we won’t have sex on our wedding night. He’s not typically that type of person anyway, but I wanted to make sure he understood that I’m really serious about it.

    I love these pics. The cupcake wrappers are so cute. I love that you used them to identify different flavors.

    So so cute! I love that you designated cupcake flavor by the pattern cutouts on the wrappers! Clever!

    Did you make the tower yourself? That’s adorable! I’m trying to figure out how to have one tower for all 204 cupcakes we will have. The idea for the flavors is great too!
