I'll Have My Cake and Eat it Too!

Friday, March 4, 2011

You know when you first start wedding planning you have all these ideas, and then (by the time you're half-way through planning) you find that your original ideas have evolved, or even changed? Well, that hasn't really happened to me!

With the exception of one thing...the cake!

At first, I didn't want a wedding cake, in fact, I hated cake! Yuck! Next, Mr. CF was put in charge of the wedding cake, he could do what he wants! Then, Mr. CF, in fear of making the wrong decision regarding the cake, relinquished his duty and returned the task to me. Thanks. Then I had the bright idea of having a tiny cake with lots of specialty cakes (the kinds I actually like...cheese cake, tiramisu, etc.) sitting around it. So what now you ask?????????? Well, I decided that I want a big wedding cake of course. What girl doesn't?!?

The first thing I did after this realization was call the bakery to set up a tasting. I am very excited to go in a couple of weeks and I've been scouring the internet for pictures of my dream wedding cake. Here's what I came up with!

Yummy Cake

Mr. CF poo-pooed the one on the top left and bottom right :( C'mon, they're gorgeous! Plus, he's going to get his own cake! I decided that I'm going to show all of these pictures to the baker and see what he can come up with that will make both of us happy! Relationships are about compromise, right?

So tell me, have you changed your mind about anything over the course of your wedding planning?


  1. I love the ones that Mr. CF didn't like. Those two are my favorites! The bottom right one looks like the flowers are made of fabric. Are they or are they edible? I know sometimes inedible decorations are placed on cakes just for looks. I can make fabric flowers like that for you if you want and decide to go with that cake :)

  2. I know, I love those 2 as well! I think the flowers are edible. Here is the link to the lady that made it:

    I bet it would be less expensive to make them out of fabric and I know you could do it. I'll keep you updated on what we're going to do!

  3. The ones Mr. CF didn't like are my favs too haha! I can't wait to see what your baker comes up with.

  4. My favorite is the top left one. I've never seen one like it before. I'm thinking it was a good thing Mr. CF gave the cake duty back to you!
