Wedding Cake Link Up !

Thursday, February 23, 2012

The Cake! I designed it myself by sketching the whole thing for our cake baker! He did an amazing job down to the last detail I wanted. He was a true talent to work with and I am so glad I chose him. 
On our wedding day, we had two rooms rented, and the cake was in the second room. We had arrived at our reception and had been mingling for over an hour before we made our way into the second room where the cake was. When we did, I was in awe and so amazed. The cake was everything I dreamed of and more. 
Below are some more pictures of the details of our cake!

Doves were always something I wanted to incorporate in our wedding. Doves are beautiful, and I have always thought they were sentimental to me in so many ways. I always thought the idea of "Love Birds" was really cute, and even used bird themes for my showers. When it came time to picking a wedding topper, it was a no brainer. I love the Bride and Groom Toppers, but it wasn't necessarily the style/feel I was going for. 
And you know how I first thought to use them for my wedding? I always loved the Disney movie Cinderella as a little girl, and my favorite part of the movie is when the birds help create Cinderella's dress. I just thought it was so magical and lovely. Silly, but it was my first thought when I was deciding. 

The Cinderella theme kind of continues with the drapes on the cake. Remember Cinderella's dress how it had many drapes on her dress? So dreamy and magical. That is where those beautiful blush drapes came from. 

Did you know Southern girls like monograms? Oh and pearls? I know the rest of the world does too, but I've never seen so many in the South. So, I had to have some of those touches on the cake. From the very beginning I had used the letter "R" (our last name initial) through showers, invitations, and more. So, I definitely wanted it to be on the cake. The pearls around the cake were really important to me. I loved how dainty they looked; it completed the look of my cake perfectly. 

FLAVORS {from the top}: 
Traditional Wedding Cake 
Lemonade {Which I never even got to try :( so sad} 
Vanilla with Strawberries in the filling
White chocolate 
Praline flavored cake
Last Tier was traditional wedding cake 

I had 16 Cake Pulls, so bare with me if I don't remember them all. One of my favorite parts of our wedding was the cake pulls. Girls get so into it! When you see who gets what and how much they take it to heart is just so funny. I think my 16 year old cousin got the Ring and a friend who's in a serious relationship got the Old Maid, so it just really didn't make sense but was funny!

Now, I'll give the Groom his glory too, because really his cake is adorable too! 

For those who are new, my husband started medical school the day after we got home from our honeymoon. So this cake was very fitting for him. Plus, he's a funny guy and wanted something to show his personality :)
