All the pretty cakes....
Sure I said I didn't want a girly "wedding" cake, but I'm a girl! It's so hard to avoid all the super girly details that so many weddings are overflowing with.... and, as we all know, I'm in love with ruffles!
Our ideas of what kinds of cake to have, and their general style, hasn't changed since we thought we were going to bake them ourselves.
We're still wanting 3 9in round, 3 layer cakes in 3 different flavors.
♥Yellow cake with Chocolate frosting for Dave
♥Carrot cake with Cream Cheese frosting for me
♥Any flavor cake with Lavender colored frosting to tie our wedding colors together in cake!
As I troll the boards of the wedding planning sites that the internet seems to be overflowing with, I see so many cute ideas for frosting designs. I've made a little inspiration board below to share the ones that I think are adorable! In my mind, our cakes will be monochromatic (chocolate on chocolate, lavender on lavender, etc.) and the frosting would add a fun dimension without screaming WEDDING CAKE!!! I ♥ the ruffles one, but I also think it would be too girly for all 3 cakes and (not even considering how David might feel about it) I wouldn't be able to handle that much girly! However, if our baker is able to re-create any of these designs, and could bring the ruffles to life, I wouldn't be opposed to having 3 different designed frostings (after all the color of the frosting will be 3 different colors) and one of them possibly ruffles.
What do you think?? Are you loving any of these designs, too??
PS-The bottom right is potentially what our cake pedestals will look like.
