This was before the fondant craze so it was all buttercream and really tasty. We put the top layer in the fridge at our honeymoon B&B and had it for dessert every evening.

I like chocolate cake but my wife likes pineapple flavour. So we will try it with some alteration. Thank a lot for such a good idea.

My husband and I had a small (12″ diameter for the large bottom tier) two tier carrot cake because, a. it’s delicious and, b. we wanted to have the traditional cake-cutting moment. But! Being an August wedding, we also wanted PIE. So, we had about 10 delicious pies of all different gorgeous summer fruit flavors in addition to the tiny cake. It was perfect!

The only bummer was that, unknown to us, the caterers insisted on serving us , and they brought everything to us–but not the ice cream. We never did get any of it!

Neither of us liked the cut the cake part of the wedding, so that part was also easy to ditch.

It cost more than my dress and every bite was worth it.

But to put our own special touch on it – our cake topper was a small bowl with 2 live goldfish. It was a nice fun touch to an otherwise rather traditional wedding, and one our friends still talk about 10+ years later.

I went for three flavours – chocolate, lemon and carrot (as you can tell I love cake too).

Neither my husband or I are particularly fond of cake, but we looove Rice Krispies. It was a tad difficult to cut, but there’s a great picture of me making a face trying to cut it. We also had a dessert spread for people who wanted something else.

The company set up a cold case in the corner and staffed it. Guests lined up and picked up to three flavors. The mots popular, by far, was “Panna Cotta Wedding Cake.” It tasted exactly like cake. My husband and I didn’t cut anything but we fed each other a spoonful from a fancy gelato sundae for pictures. Plus my best friend is vegan so one of the choices was a berry sorbet. It was a hit!

Mostly I wanted it just for the tradition of cutting the cake. A friend of my MIL’s was just starting a cake business and all I wanted was something simple. (2 layers with white frosting & purple ribbon.) She said she would do it for $30! I didn’t expect it to be much, but it ended up being SOO good. My mom decorated it with flowers leftover from flower arrangements, and I couldn’t believe how good it looked! Such a pleasant surprise to have something I expected to not care about be such a highlight.

It was beautiful and delicious.

My brother and sister-in-law requested two cakes (one for each of them) for their wedding celebration. Using old family recipes, I made German chocolate with coconut/pecan frosting for my brother, and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for my sis-in-law. I loved the non-traditional look of these two cakes at their reception.

But a cake of cheese sounds even better!

It was a wonderful gift. She also made a gorgeous red velvet groom’s cake.

We did not save our top layer for our anniversary, but chose to share it with our parents and siblings the next day as we opened our gifts. And we’ve continued that tradition with our four kids; we always eat birthday cake for breakfast the morning after a party.

It was still moist and amazing coming out of the freezer as leftovers over the course of the next year, too. Wouldn’t have changed it! :)
