Our wedding cake was so beautiful! It was literally a show stopper, or should I say a conversation starter. All our guests commented on how unique and glamorous it was, and it made me extremely happy to know that people actually paid attention. We wanted something unique, and thanks to all you readers, we finally had the perfect balance of brown, ivory and design.
For our cake topper, we used a vintage crystal glass that my step-mother had, and used the remaining arylic crystals that we used for our escort cards. I put a tealight candle in the glass so that way at night our cake would have its own mini chandelier.
The pattern on the cake wasn’t exactly the one from our invitation. It was extremely hard to do (though I attempted to cut out the pattern on clear acetate). Luckily our baker had a pattern similar to what we wanted. In the end, the result was awesome… and it’s not like our guests remembered the pattern on our invites anyway. 😉
We had a chocolate Ferrero Rocher crisp dessert included with our meal, so we served the cake later on with the sweets table. Since I figured not everyone would eat cake at night, I decided to make cake flags to go with our oh-so yummy dessert. It basically had our names on it with our wedding date and the clock element found on our RSVP cards. Matchy matchy. 😉
For the portions, we decided to make a cake for only 70 people (though we had over 150 guests), and I have to say it was still too much because we had tonnes left over. We had more than half the cake untouched… but we even forgot the leftover cake at the hotel. Oh well…
Did you save your cake to eat on your first anniversary?
