Those who know me understand that I’m obsessed with certain foods, like french fries. The general category of “dessert” runs a very close second to those delicious fried potatoes, and I’m especially enamored with cakes. I’ve been known to eat them for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner.
Because cakes are so imporant in my life, I wanted to share some great and not so great wedding cake creations that I’ve come across. First, the most delicious (and nutritious?) cakes I’ve ever tasted have come from a local bakery, the Alexandria Pastry Shop. A sample of their work:
Now, for the ugly. The following images should remind you brides-to-be about the importance of clear communication with your baker. Unless you tell them what you’re envisioning, sketch it on paper and agree on the image, your cake runs the risk of a) being a huge disappointment and b) appearing on awesome blog, like Cake Wrecks (following images courtesy of Cake Wrecks).
What it all comes down to is whether or not your cake tastes good, and whether or not you love it. If you want a likeness of you created in flour, sugar and butter, only to be eaten by family and friends, by all means – proceed!
What kinds of cakes have you come across in your wedding attending and planning experience? Share your stories! Delicious, disgusting or plain ugly, we want to know.
