Cakes! Part V

 Update: My giveaway is up and running! Check it out here: Giveaway Round 1. You have until March 17 to enter!


First of all, thank you all for following me on Facebook. I'm happy to say that I've reached 100 followers (which may not sound like a lot, but is a big accomplishment for me!). I'll be hosting a giveaway soon (probably this weekend) for my Facebook fans. There will be multiple prizes and multiple winners, and it will be easy to enter – no jumping through hoops. I know we all get sick of those. Check back this weekend for the giveaway. THANK YOU again!

On another note, here is another lovely collection of cakes. I decided to make a cake post because, the fiancé and I have FINALLY decided on a design for ours! Now we're in the process of finding someone to make it. Brandt's family has always had a tradition of coming together and making cakes for special occassions Рfor birthday parties and reunions, all of the aunts and some of the cousins each make a dessert. Then one gets set in the middle of each table, acting as a delicious centerpiece. People then get up and go around to all the different tables, trying whichever desserts they like. Sounds fun, right? It is!

I decided to use this tradition in Brandt and I's wedding – but with a twist. We will have about 15 people making cakes, but all of them are going to be white. On white cake stands. And placed all together on one table. How gorgeous will that be? I imagine this gorgeous table full of white cakes and it just makes me so happy. For this reason, Brandt and I decided that our cake should be small. We will be the only ones eating it! So here's what we've decided on:



I love this 1.) because it's rustic and feminine at the same time – which is pretty much Brandt and I in a nut shell. The ruffles are adorable and 2.) because our cake will be the only one with a splash of color amongst all of the other white ones. I'm not sure if we will use apples or not on top, but it will definitely be something green. I also adore that green cake plate. So there you have it, my wedding cake! Everyone I talk to says that it probably won't taste the best because it will have so much fondant on it. But, that's not what I'm concerned about. Because Brandt and I will be the only ones eating it, it doesn't have to taste great. I just want it to LOOK good! Apparently I'm very shallow when it comes to cakes...

To get you inspired, here are some other gorgeous cake ideas.
