Do you watch "The TodayShow"

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
If you regularly watch this show, you know about the yearly wedding. If not... Today hosts a wedding every year and the viewers get to pick all the components.. gown, tux bridesmaid attire, venue for reception and of course THE CAKE icon_biggrin.gif . The cakes were unveiled this morning and the choices are really beautiful. They are also offering groom's cakes this year. You can go to the link posted below and vote for the cake you like. Unfortunately they did not post the pics of the groom's cakes. The first was a barbell (the groom is a fitness guy) the second was a "bushel of crabs (exactly like the one posted on here icon_surprised.gif ) the third had a beach theme with a jeep on the top and the fourth was a tuxedo to go with the brides cake which was a replica of the bridal gown. Have fun looking and vote for your favorite!! I do. thumbs_up.gif

I just voted... my choice is #3 the gift box cake. I also noticed that they have a video of the segment that aired this morning.. you can see the groom's cakes on that.

I'm the same way as you, always looking at the cakes on tv. icon_smile.gif

Too bad the pictures aren't bigger. The pink/black one looks like the fondant rows are uneven. It's a pretty cake though. The wedding gown one I do not care for. I've seen these cakes done much better. The other two are very pretty.

Great post!

I agree Sangria.. I dont care for the "wedding gown" cake. I have seen a picture of another gown cake by the same cake designer and I didn't like that one either (lol) It is done by the Cake Diva in Hoboken NJ.

Is that the same Cake Diva that was on the birthday cake challenge?
I was not thrilled with that wedding gown cake, either.

I also don't like the cake divas cake....Just this past weekend on the food network there was a birhtday cake competition. The cake diva was one of the competitors and I did not like her or her cake at all. She actually seems very annoying to me. I have also checked out her website and was not that fond of her stuff. The first place winner was from montery, Ca and has a really nice website I would recommend checking out: www.justcake.com
She has a $500 min. on all cake orders! I only wish that I can be that successful one day!

chefali.. I think the woman who won that challenge is very talented. The cake diva's place is very near where I live and I have never heard of her until I saw that program on tv. I have checked out the Just Cake website.. awesome stuff.

Hi Everyone,
My favorite was #3. But I have to say the #1 and #2 were beautiful too.
I didn't go for the wedding cake dress either.

I went for #3 myself, probably because I'm more of a traditionalist. However, that crab cake, while nice looking, is a stolen idea and we know who origonated it, don't we?

Thanks, I was wondering when they'd get to the cakes. I've been watching CNN in the morning lately so I missed it.

I must say, Cake Diva does have an impressive clientele.

I voted for the 3rd cake..........I really prefer traditional stuff. I went to all 4 web sites and I like the 3 websites cakes better too.

the way i understood it was that the wedding cake and the grooms cakes were matched up... i also chose the gift box which i believe the beach grooms cake goes with it icon_wink.gif

Thanks for the great post, I always love looking at other's cakes! I couldn't decide between cake #2 (pink/chocolate) and cake#3, but the groom's cakes finally decided for me because I loved the jeep and dogs on the beach cake! The wedding cake dress didn't gel with me at all, but just my personal taste I guess.

Ha ha Chefali!!!
I am not a fan of the Cake Diva either!! In the birthday cake challenge on the food network her carousel cake was atrocious!!! I think the women here on CC have done MUCH better work then she has!!! LOL
I hate to be critical of ANYONE, but I am not impressed by cake diva at all. LOL
