This thread is a handy reminder that I need to email our caterer and see if she has found our 'misplaced' top layer. I had almost forgot about it! I really want some cake next month on our anniversary!

Better yet, just ask her to make you a new one. Our venue said they would do that for us instead so it would be fresh. I'm not sure I want freezer burnt cake.

Our top two layers survived the freezer quite nicely. It's all in how you wrap it. (The bottom two tiers were enough to feed our guests, so the caterer gave us both of the other tiers.)

Yeah this is a catering company that is based at the church. They serve lunch to the surrounding Harlem community daily and have 3 spaces for wedding and any other kinds of receptions. I think they know how to store a cake tier!

Our cake was SO good I don't think I'd notice a little freezer ice.

This is my wedding cake. If you see in the corner is a little bride and groom star fish It was supposed to be the topper, but my mom made it and the baker said it was too heavy to keep on the whole time.

The Cookie Connection
"The cookie table is a local wedding tradition worth baking for. Flour, sugar and butter have been disappearing from grocery shelves at an alarming rate over the past few weeks. Like milk and toilet paper on the eve of a winter storm, vanilla extract and chocolate morsels have to be restocked regularly. Are people preparing for some sort of calamity? No, they're just stockpiling cookies for the season of weddings, graduation parties, anniversaries and other family gatherings that seem to hit a peak in June.

I never met a food tradition I didn't like, and the Pittsburgh cookie table is one that came as a welcome surprise to this transplant from Brooklyn, N.Y. The quantity and quality of the cookie assortments at these functions are a source of endless discussion and great family pride. I recently read about one event where there were 800 dozen cookies! You may have heard of even more extravagant displays.

No one seems to know where or how this tasty tradition began, but here are two recipes from my mother's repertoire to add to the table." (He followed with a recipe for pizelles and a tartlet.)

Bringing cookies to a wedding is showing your affection to the bride and groom. I've been to showers where a list was sent around to see if you could make cookies, what type, how many, etc. In the Western PA area, every Cookie Table must have pizelles, mini ladylocks, pecan tassies, thumbprints, mini cheesecakes, those (insert nationality here) Wedding Cakes, and some "kid cookies" (peanut butter, chocolate chips, etc). Ohio ones have to include Buckeyes, too. When you book your caterer, they usually tell you whether or not they will "tray the cookies" - put them on display in a pleasing manner. Truly great Cookie Tables not only have the one main table, but a plate on each table.
I was in a wedding for a friend who asked people to bake cookies for her. I was in such a frenzy to get there (her wedding was in Zilly/Wexford, and I lived in Squirrel Hill at the time) for the rehearsal dinner (of course I was running late) that I forgot to take my M&M cookies to her. Her tables, though, were freaking awesome. They took up an ENTIRE corner of the huge ballroom, and they were a major hit! She had both cookie and candy tables, and if I remember correctly everything was mixed in together. Beyond just having plates for people to put the stuff on, they created little doggie bags for people to take home with them.

My sister-in-law is from Western PA, too, and while my family lives in Western NY, my brother and sister-in-law had a candy/cookie table at their wedding, too. Believe me, my town had never seen anything like it and I think the tradition spread, because a cousin got married in the same time and she insisted on a cookie table, too!

Here is our cake! It was so good....



Edited to add: this was the groom's cake we ate at the rehearsal dinner, which we still have a ton of (still tastes good)

I've had some amazing cakes covered with marzipan instead of fondant, and the marzipan has had designs imprinted into it. If I were to be married, this is the way I'd want to go, plus Swedish princess Cake is just something I like, A LOT. LucyKKG knows what I mean.

This bakery has an example, it was one I would consider if I were to be married back at home (if I were to be married at all, haha!) http://www.legateauelegant.com/Our_Cakes.html
I think I gained a gazillion pounds just reading that website! They sound wonderful!

Here's our cake! We had a different flavor for each tier (coconut, chocolate, carrot and raspberry amaretto). My favorite was the amaretto! Yum!

Thanks!

We got the cake from Cucamonga Cakery which was one of the bakeries our country club had a contract with.

Everyone loved the cake but I was a bit disappointed they didnt completely pull off the original idea I had given them...here's the picture I gave them of how I wanted the bows on the cake.



At the end of the day, it was good cake and people really enjoyed it so it wasnt all that bad.

While your cake was positively beautiful, I can see why you liked the one above, too. It has a simplistic eloquence about it.

Disney Wedding cake



This is not from the Disney themed wedding that I attended, but I still thought it was a little crazy for a wedding cake
