As you might know, we were going for a “nautical” look to our wedding decor with all of the decorations we made. Since the cake is often the center of attention at a wedding, at least for some period of time, we had to make sure it fit with the theme as well. I had the great idea to build our cake display using driftwood from the beach, like we had done when Mr. Coral built our coffee table a couple years ago. I gave Mr. C some pretty good inspiration from Pinterest to work off of, too.
We decided to do cupcakes for our wedding cake instead of a traditional tiered cake. We both love cupcakes and wanted to give people lots of options for flavors instead of just one flavor that not everyone would like. So we needed to make our driftwood cake display so that it could hold lots of different layers of cupcakes.
So we went to the beach and gathered driftwood. For some reason, Mr. C really didn’t think he was going to be able to pull anything off this time like he had with the table. This just seemed more difficult to him because there had to be multiple platforms and he had no vision. But he started out by building a sturdy base like he did with the table. That is always step one. From there, he would be able to build up.
