Help me find cake inspiration

Recommended Posts

Since we are down to the final hours before our meeting with the baker I need help finding cakes. When my mom was going to do it we were just going really simple but now that the cake is being professionally done I want to get my monies worth. Now the issue is I have not even really looked at wedding cakes and am really trying to stuff months worth of looking into an hour. Can you help me

Here is some inspiration for you all:

I am trying to find the balance between childish and fun. I really don't want daisies on the cake as there are rose petal that will be spread on the table.

The cake will be frosting not fondant so nothing supper fancy. Any photos for me?

The boys are watching hockey at my place right now & I am SO not interested so I'll do a bit of web searching right now! Anything else you want me to keep in mind other than the colors & stuff you already posted?

I am having a hard time finding cake ideas without fondant, I love love love the look of fondant so I have nothing saved on my PC without. These are the pics I could find that I think you can work with.

 

This one might be fondant, but just use buttercream icing instead.

I found this one as well and you can put your ribbon colour on it instead. And some flowers like the ones that will be in your bouquet.

Huh, I can't tell if that is fondant or not, but I don't think so. It seems a little too bumpy to be fondant. Only way to know is to ask. If they do fondant I am sure I have lots of idea's for you.

Here are a few I came across:

 

Pretty simple, but could be pretty with the roses. You could even have the little dots done in colour to add some pop to the cake

Maybe with your colours & without the gerberas on top

Also used with your colours ( could be done using buttercream instead of fondant <I think!>)

The thing that makes me think it is fondant is look at the rounded edges on the cake, I don't think you can do that with frosting. Their website says they are famous for their whipped frosting but it doesn't say anything about that as far as wedding cakes. Oh well, I guess I will find what I like and just give the picture to them and have them do what they can. I would call but it's almost 9 and no bakery is open that late.

Thanks!

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
