who hated their own wedding cake?? - Page 2

post #16 of 79
My cake was fine but somewhere along the way my MIL decided to make a groom's cake. Chocolate angel food with grapes on top???? I wasn't sure what it was supposed to be and asked my dh if the grapes spelled something in braille! For our 25th, I'll make the cake!

I was so excited when I ordered my cake. I had a gal make it who had won the cover of the Wilton Yearbook 3 times (this was 10 yrs ago). So I thought, GREAT, I am in good hands and the cakes will be beautiful... WRONG!!!! I ordered a small 3 tier and a sheet cake. The 3 tier was to be white with red roses and black accents (our colors were very formal: black, white and red) and the sheet cake was to look like my bridal boquet laying on top. When the cake arrived, it had dirt and lint all over it, YUCK!!! AND it was white, orange and gray!!! She decorated it in a hurry that morning and did not let her colors set to get a true red and black. And the sheet cake looked like tumble weeds on top, did not resemble a boquet of any sort!!! Unfortunately the photographer was too good and the colors look perfect in the photos. The only good thing...it tasted great!! How she won the Wilton cover 3 times is beyond me!!!

Oh well, at least I have "funny" story regarding my wedding cake to pass on to others, and we are still happily married and more in love than ever before!

I LOVED my cake. Getting it was the hastle!!!

We were getting married in PV, Mexico, on the beach, totally fairy-tale, and my mom was in charge of everything (which was PERFECT as she has been dying for me to follow thru on a wedding, long story, and we have pretty much the exact same taste in most areas, you learn what you live). So we were doing white everything with white and silver pinatas, and palm leaves under the plates, and we had sea shell chocolates in sea shell heart shaped boxes, and white maraccas as favors, and everything was perfect. And I wanted a 3 tier white cake with white sea shell chocolates and white RI "coral". So I bought the perfect chocolates from a shop in FLORIDA (look beside my name, I'm in Calgary Alberta Canada!), which were shipped to my work, because someone had to sign for them and they had to stay refridgerated, and had to be there 2 days before we left for the wedding, and I was bringing bags of pre-made RI down with me because the cake lady had never used it before, and the plane was delayed 2 hours with me and chocolates on the plane, and we were SWELTERING in the plane, and did I mention that I was carrying my dress and they wouldn't let me hang it in the first-class closet because i'm not in first class, and I REALLY needed a drink!!!

But all was well in the end. It was an amazing cake. And an amazing day!

I loved my cake. My mom made it. Since I got married three days before Christmas she made it to look like presents. For each of set up they were all satellite cakes. If hubby and I ever decide to renew...I'd make the cake and this time use fondant.

I got married 8 yrs ago (at 19) and was just concerned about doing things inexpensively for my folks. My cake came from the big-W super store and I had to drive 1 hour (1 way) in the humid NC summer to pick it up that morning. Needless to say, my ORANGE bc cabbages, I mean, roses wilted. Don't ask why I had orange flowers...ORANGE!!!??? And my mom bought 2 little dollar store ceramic teddy bears (bride and groom) which she stuck on as the topper. Good thing I didn't really care at the time but when I look back at it, I think "How juvenile and tacky!!"

I couldn't even tell you what my cake looked like. I don't know if I even have a picture of us cutting the cake. I don't even know if we did cut the cake. I remember having the "If you squish the cake in my face the marriage is over" talk with my husband, and I didnt' get cake in my face. Can you tell I got married 23 years ago, and before I started doing cakes?

My hubby and I eloped, and didn't even have cake! Can you imagine??? I don't know what I was thinking! icon_smile.gif
We're thinking of a 10 year renewal of our vows, so maybe we'll have a huge cake then!

I HATED my cake!!!! My mom was trying to NOT let me see it but obviously I did! I had ordered a cake that was stacked in the center and about 4 other cakes on separate stands all ivory with burgundy accents and this really pretty border of pearls around the MIDDLE of each cake and swags on the side.Anyhow .......I ended up recieving a White cake with sloppy sloppy purple swags and pink roses made out of frosting,It was the tackiest frickin thing icon_cry.gif and I was just thinking to myself what if people think I ACTUALLY ordered this thing!At the time I had never done a cake,or I would have done my own.

I hated it! Besides the fact that is was very dry, it looked nothing like it was supposed to look like. It was dreadful! You know what though, it serves me right! This was before I knew anything about cakes or the time and skill involved in making them. I didn't do my research and I didn't want to pay a lot for cake then. After all, cake is just flour and water, right? As a result of my ignorance, I got a substandard cake that I was not pleased with! The good news is that I have since developed a better understanding and respect for this art and promise never to deliver a substandard cake to anyone!

Hated my cake...I thought it was really tacky looking. The worst part was that I knew it would look tacky. Even if they had gotten the colors right (which they didn't), it STILL would have looked tacky. I let my DH pick out the cake. We were arguing soooo much in the bakery about what type of cake to get as I wanted a totally different style. Another customer actually walked up to us and suggested that we should get both cakes...that is how much we were arguing. Anyway, I got so fed up with the situation that I told him to pick whatever he wanted. I figured maybe it wouldn't be so bad. This is years before I started decorating...so yes, I was a clueless bride when it came to cake. We are going to do a 10 year vow renewal...guess who will NOT be picking out the cake design? icon_wink.gif

We eloped. I have a hard time convincing myself that wedding are important. Though I LOVE all the pretty decorations, the food, dressing up, cake... I just have a hard time telling people that it's IMORTANT.

Anyhow, 6 months after our eloping we threw a reception for everyone to join us, we got a *gasp* walmart cake, I don't know what it looked like, I think it was 3 satellite tiers. lol. I did not care! I can tell you that we had a keg of yeung ling though icon_smile.gif

we eloped, so initially we had no wedding cake.. i'm not even sure we went out to dinner that night LOL. anyway, for our 1st anniversary we had a small wedding in my mom's backyard. at the time, i thought the cake was pretty, it was a simple bc 2tiered round cake w/bc roses. i do remember it didn't taste very good (kind of dry). however, i recently saw pictures of it and who every put the tiers together (columns) got them crooked (i think this might have been my mom) and tried to wiggle them - in my pictures, it looks like there is a big hole in the cake where the column went. the cake was nothing spectacular. we're celebrating 13 yrs this year and have been talking about renewing our vows for our 15th in 2 yrs and having our boys be part of the ceremony - one thing is for sure, either i or someone i KNOW makes great tasting and great looking cakes will be making the cake this time around AND i'll get what i really want, not what my mother wants.

My cake was really beautiful...but it was not the one I had requested. I don't know why but I ended up with pink AND blue roses. I don't even remember asking for anything blue! It was done by a friend and she gave me a terrific discount, so I can't really complain! A year later when we had the top tier, we were very fortunate that my aunt had prepared it well for the freezer. It was awesome, so that made up for all those blue roses!
