What would YOUR Wedding cake look like?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
So, since all of you spend so much time on here and now know so many awesome decorators, If you had to order your wedding cake today who would make it and what would it look like? I am actually trying to come up with what I want for our retaking of our vows and I know who but I cannot decide what I want it to look like. I never had a real wedding or wedding cake so this is my chance to have what I have allways wanted (I just dont knwo what that is lol).

I would want tonedna to do my wedding cake if I had a do-over. I would either go very classy all white, or black and white, or totally crazy with bright colors and topsy turvy. Wow I bet that was of no help at all huh! icon_confused.gif

This is my current favorite, but there are so many more I love. http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1401411.html It just so depends on what your tastes are, if youv'e had a wedding cake in the past, etc. My tastes seem to change month by month - so ask me next month, I'll give you another pic. What I like now will change by then.

I did not get to pick out the cake for my wedding, my mother did it for me and i hated it, the colors were wrong and I disliked the taste, so now 5 years later my husband and i are planning our anniversary and i get to make my dream cake, only i am so busy with cakes for my clients i have no idea what i want to make. I am thinking of an oval cake with ivory fondant and red gumpaste roses cascading down.

Carrie Biggers of Carrie's Cakes in Sandy, Utah did my cake. It was my dream cake. Delicious and beautiful. My only let down was the color was TOTALLY off. Supposed to be wedgewood blue (close to periwinkle) but was a very (VERY) pale baby blue. I however didn't care, I got MARRIED and ate delicious cake. Nothing else mattered. icon_smile.gif (As a side note, it was 3 tiers with 6 satellites on the bottom all covered in blue fondant with a white "lace" fondant trim. )

This makes me laugh, because I LOVED my wedding cake when I got married 18 yrs ago, but now I would do something completely different.

I love a really simple fondant covered cake with flowers and almost nothing else but the border

I'm with bohnlo, though, I LOVE tonedna's cakes icon_biggrin.gif

I'm sitting here laughing because I have NO IDEA what my wedding cake looked or tasted like. It was probably the "standard issue" wedding cake in 1977--white on white, I guess--from the restaurant in which we had our reception. I don't remember how many tiers or the type of flowers, but I'd guess roses, even though I hate roses. To my recollection, ALL wedding cakes I saw at the time were white on white. Not even chocolate anything.
When I get home, I'll have to go look at our wedding album. If I were to get married today, my cake would be chocolate inside and out, topsy turvy, sweet and colorful. Maybe with honkin' big sunflowers. NOT traditional because I had that in '77!

Depends on your colors, but I love the chocolate and either pink, blue, or turquoise. I would alternate the tier colors.

Mine would look like someone else did it, because that's exactly what it would be.

Something art deco, which is my all-time favorite art style, probably very Fred and Adele Astaire looking.

Who would do it? Either Ron Ben-Israel (his banana cake is Da Bomb) or Colette Peters.

Were I to go old-school traditional, there would be nobody else but Toba Garrett.

Funny...I looked at my wedding pics this morning because I couldn't remember what my cake looked like (almost 30 years ago, and not very impressive, lol). I still have my topper and will be making my cake for our 30th anniversary...I think ivory stacked square tiers with calla lillies and simple pearl borders (my first cake had traditional 3 round tiers w/columns and roses all over the tops. I LOVE Tonedna's cakes...

i love tonedna's cakes too! icon_smile.gif

i would have chocolate cake- it was too expensive for us when we got married. we just had pound cake and frosting. icon_sad.gif i actually secretly really love it, after it's been refrigerated. i would have a chocolate cake with a deliciously buttery SMBC and maybe i'd throw in some tart raspberry filling since that's my fav too. i still might have a vanilla layer with bavarian cream for my non- chocoholic friends! icon_smile.gif

great post idea!

What a great thread! It reminded me that I can't remember what my wedding cake looked like 26 years ago! I do remember it tasted fabulous, and some friends gave us a handblown glass topper that was not our taste at all. We used it and I hated it. Oh well, I've been divorced for two years now, I'm pretty sure I will never get married again cuz I"m lovin' my life right now. BUT, I guess my dream cake would be done by Bronwen Weber~
