    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!!!

              OH good I'm glad you both like the cakes, and thanks for your comment about our wedding pictures. Hmm Figi wedding huh? What are you plans so far, do you have your location yet? I actually work for a Japanesse company and I "think" we even have an office near there.

                How about something like this? It's small, yet very nice for a wedding.

                  My Location : Qamea Resort & Spa

                  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! )

                  Monogram Nylon Waterproof Totes from LL Bean 1/couple

                  I got some of the stuff for them already. I ordered atomic travel clocks for a really good deal at 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 will be booking my photographer and videographer After the wedding I plan to either host the video online or mail my family the videos.

                    Oh Tammy, if you have an office in Japan, can you give me the info? I have the resort booked but Fiance and i havent gotten our travel tickets!!! We are also interested in flying from Tokyo (where we are) to Fiji via NZ because 1. its about the same if not cheaper and 2 we want to stop in NZ for a bit after our WeddingMoon in Fiji! Let me know.

                      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..
