Big Wedding, Small Budget

Dessert Options – Wedding Cakes

on April 26, 2012

A word of warning—I’m not sure that we will have a wedding cake. I personally don’t care that much about that particular tradition, and cake is not my favorite dessert. But—I did love to check out the wedding cakes in Little Italy as a little girl. And after going to a few bridal shows and reading more than a few wedding magazines, I’ve learned that there are some really pretty cakes out there. Check these out (I’ve made the pics a little bigger than normal so you can see the detail):


Yes, that is actually a cake. This is obviously something I would never choose (at least, I hope it’s obvious), but I just had to show it here. It is totally ridiculous. And, once you start cutting into it, a little morbid, right?


The “uneven” cake is kind of trendy right now, but I’m not a huge fan. I think I like things to be more orderly than that.


I think hand painted cakes are really pretty, and the work is amazing. I love this one because it reminds me of the Tiffany windows at the Met. But it’s definitely too ornate for our shindig.


This cake is on the plain side, but it’s moving in the right direction. I think it’s simple and really pretty, and it seems like it would fit in well with our picnic wedding.


I think this cake is really cute and fun while still being on the simple side. It definitely seems like a party kind of cake, if that makes sense. Plus, I love that it’s colorful.


I think this cake is so fun! I love that it’s not white, and I just adore the stars. Definitely filing this one away for inspiration.


This cake is absolutely amazing. I LOVE it . It’s so colorful without being over-the-top, and it’s just beautiful.

Last but not least….there are a lot of Super Mario Bros cakes out there, but this one is my favorite. I had to include it just for fun. The picture is bigger because there is a lot to see…ENJOY!
