I always love hearing the stories of wedding cakes- especially from baker/ decorators! This is a link to mine here on CC.  I picked out the design from a Wilton book when I was still in high school!  I made it myself, it was so wonderful to make a cake where I was the only person I cared about pleasing!

I just love that old school disign, I am pretty sure that I am also gonna make my own wedding cake, because I love the old school american style buttercream cakes and I'm about the only baker here in the Netherlands who makes them all buttercream cakes.I'm pretty sure mine will have stairs and cherubs and everything.

Here is our wedding cake - made by my lovely MIL in her wood stove (that is all she uses to cook with) It was a delicious chocolate mudcake with ganache. We were married almost 4 years ago and I still have the sugar hearts on display in my 'wedding cabinet'.

By the way forgot to add that I loved the cake and loved the fact that it was made especially for me by my new family icon_smile.gif

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .

We got engaged, two weeks later we found out he was deploying. We wanted to get married before he left so I planned it all out really quickly. Got married in my mother's living room. Hubby's only request...cupcakes instead of cake.

I could have sworn I has shared mine but I don't see it. Anyway, I had a "big fat Greek wedding", about 220 guests. The decorator was someone my in-laws knew. We picked it from a book of pictures. I'm not sure but I THINK it cost about $120 (in 1983). At the time, I loved it! It was marble cake and we were very cutting edge in that it wasn't plain white and we had it served it as dessert instead of wrapping the slices for people to take home as favors. Now looking back, I can see it was a cake wreak; the bottom large tier is so uneven and the buttercream on the middle tier looks like it's about to fall off. In her defense, the day was unbearable hot, so much so that one of my bridesmaids fainted in the un air conditioned church. I still have the cheesy, ugly topper icon_biggrin.gif.

My husband has never been a cake fan (I have cured him of that one). When he was growing up his mom always made cupcakes for his birthday so it was a nostalgia thing. I went to Carolina Cupcakery and at the time they only did cupcakes. Like I said. It was a rushed wedding due to him deploying. It was just our immediate family (siblings and parents) and my grandparents since my grandfather performed the ceremony. We didn't need a lot of cake. It was a Thursday. We went on a two day honeymoon and he went home to Florida on Sunday. I actually didn't get into cake decorating until he deployed and I needed something to take my mind off of it. Almost got a grocery store wedding cake but it was more expensive and didn't taste as good. If anyone is ever in Virginia, look up Carolina Cupcakery and get their We promise cupcake. Best...cupcake...ever!

Also, instead of slicing a cake and feeding it to each other, we did a jumbo cupcake and feed it to each other.

Altough its not a perfect cake, I do love it! Especially with the cherubs on the satteliet cakes. Did you choose the disign from a Wilton yearbook?
Ps: I allready saw this cake once on this site. I remember it was shared on a page about your wedding cake back then and how everybody would have done it now.

OMG! I'm either getting old or I spend too much time on CC!

 

taartenmaker, the decorator had a book with pictures of cakes she had made that we could choose from. It is classic, old school Wilton, though. Actually, I admire the piping skills.
