LMAO!!

Me too. Is there anything more WT??

Honestly, every time I see one of those tacky cakes I think to myself,

"The Eighties called. They want their cake back."

I can truly understand the artistry and workmanship that goes into a big cake like that, but they are just butt-ugly.

I agree! I also dislike basket weave! Those things just look so dated to me! The stairs thing confuses me too. Why would a cake need stairs? Is it going somewhere? icon_confused.gif It would be different if there were little fondant figures on the stairs, or drowning in the fountain...at least that would give it a purpose! icon_rolleyes.gif

Perfect cake: basketweave, tons of bc roses, tuk and ruffle under each tier, that heart shaped topper with all the ruffles, on a cake stand with lots of stairs and a glowing fountain!

Any takers?

Is that the topper that's like 12 inches tall with all the tulle and ruffles?

Of course! Unless there's a bigger one...

Don't forget all the plastic doves/ angels and the plastic filligree. I don't think I've ever seen a cake with those on there that looked appealing to me.

totally agree horrible horrible horrible to my eye anyway.

I just did a very interesting modern paisley wedding cake... bride is a graphic designer and did the invites herself - very modern no frills chill girl - groom picked up the topper and brought it home, one of the few things he wanted so she said yes. All tulle, fake flowers, ruffles, lace, white heart, at least the little figures were kind of cute. I took pics of the cake BEFORE I put on the topper. I tried to fix it a little for her ripping off some of the lace and adding hot pink ribbon and fabric.

The worst part is that all that (r@p is expensive! the topper they brought me still had the price tag $30! Even if you rent it - its going to be expensive.

I never understood the combo of fountains and cake. Does anyone know where this trend came from? Why would you want water near a cake? Why would you want to make people think of peeing when they look at the cake icon_confused.gif ? Ok maybe thats going a little far but I really dont understand. icon_eek.gif [/i][/list]
