Cake suggestions - For a tiny tiny wedding

Recommended Posts

I don't know about your baker there, but several of the bakers I work with will do a "dummy" layer. Basically a big piece of styrofoam that acts as the base layer and is decorated to match the rest of the cake. That way you get the look of a larger cake without wasting it.

I had a small wedding (15 guests) and to tell you the truth, once the restaurant (portofino restaurant at Dreams Tulum) gave us our desert (chocolate mouse cake) no one had room for the wedding cake that was served 45 minutes later ! I wish the restaurant would of only served the wedding cake... but my dear husband was really really happy to have a 2nd chocolate desert and we got to bring + eat the rest in our room. !

Thats the cutest idea!! I love it! Fiance loved it! In fact, he saw it last night and woke up this morning and mentioned how nice it was again.

Its so nice when the guys get involved!

Japanese bakeries are known for their petite cakes, so finding the molding/pan for it wont be so hard!!!

Thanks so much for sharing!
BTW, LOVED your wedding photos!

Im very excited (its a close tie between the excitement of marriage and the excitement of Fiji) Its just so hard for me as a bride because im not in the states to go pick up stuff (my dress is being shipped to me today!!) and Fiji hasnt really became the "wedding" destination as Mexico or Hawaii has become so my choices appear so limited.

Im kinda lonely here...being the only Fiji Bride. But you girls have been so instrumental in bringing out a lot of creativity!!!smile123.gif

Because getting to my wedding will be so expensive (starting at 6k/couple) I decided to splurge on their gifts.

 

Upon Confirmation I am sending these out books out with the initial newsletter

In June I will be sending out a travel survival kit with a newsletter. Yesterday I picked up most of the stuff for them. (for 100 yen=$1 I got these pkg of toothpaste coated toothbrushes!cheer2.gif )

I got some of the stuff for them already. I ordered atomic travel clocks for a really good deal at Woot : One Day, One Deal (SM) I also ordered some mini packets of meds and will be making small 1st aid kits and a CD of Fijian music or love music. I am thinking of buying a Lush Ballistic Ball to add. And I need to order or pick up some cute little notepads.

Here is what I have now: Click the image to open in full size.

waiting for the arrival:

As far as the ceremony, it will be on the beach. I will have a Fijian Choir, Fijian Warrior escorts, a meke and kava ceremony, and will have dinner afterwards. I will seriously consider the small individual cakes, since I did buy some really small cake molds (I will try to make one myself and see how they turn out... I think it would be kinda funny... since i never bake)

 

Here are my invitations. I know its soooooo wrong to put registry info on them but i did since my family keeps asking me anyways. I am sending out about 75 invites as a courtesy. My family is not very wealthy or even financially stable to come but they really want to.

I am doing individual liqueur glasses filled with a lovely creamy white and chocolate mousse. They will sit on a few different tiered stands and the top will be one large glass with the mousse and instead of "cutting a cake" we will feed each other the dessert.. all sprinkled with fairy dust.. anyway just an idea at this stage..

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
