So I’m sure for most girls, the biggest decision they make during the wedding planning process is choosing the right dress or the right location. For me, it’s the cake. After all, I do decorate cakes for a living. So I ask you, why is it such a hard decision for me? I see cakes all day every day, yet I cannot decide.
So here’s what I’ve compiled so far (keep in mind none of the colors are right on these cakes; I was more attracted to the designs):
I love the nature-y, simple feel of this first cake.
I like the stripe-y pattern of these next two.
I really like how this cake is simple and detailed all at the same time.
I just thought this paisley pattern was nice and refreshing.
This is by far my favorite. I love the use of M & Ms. How fun, right?
So by now you can probably tell I like simple. But I’m also very indecisive, and I just can’t figure it out. It really shouldn’t be that tough.
So instead I’m moving on to toppers. I never thought I’d have a topper, but then I found a couple that I fell in love with, so we’ll see. Here they are:
I love this first one because it’s rustic and I can totally display this after the wedding in my house.
This one I like because it’s so us. I love to pinch Mr. Plaid’s butt, much to his dismay, I might add. Hehe 🙂
OK, so I left out a big part of this whole wedding cake thing. Here it goes: “Hi, my name’s Jenn and I decorate cakes for a living.”
And I am just crazy enough to think that I am going to be making my own wedding cake. I mean, I’m the first to admit that I am going to have trouble relinquishing control over design and execution. Ugh!
The general consensus is that I should not be worrying myself with decorating my own cake the day before my wedding. But I know I can totally conquer it. I’m trying to get on top of everything now so that I have time to make my cake the day before. However, I know my last couple days will probably be completely crazy, so I guess I need to deal with reality.
Two of my coworkers have graciously offered to make the cake for me for free, and I’ll still get to design it exactly the way I want. That’s really the only other option I’d consider. I’m not about to pay for something I can do myself.
However, I’m making the cake, not anyone else. That’s all there is to it!
Is/was there anything in your wedding that you insisted doing even though everyone warned you it’d be a mess? Maybe I’m the only crazy one!
