Thanks! It might be hard to tell in the pic, but the fondant was light green. The cake itself was tuxedo cake (one layer french vanilla and the other chocolate fudge) and man was it tasty.

I'm surprised that SHEETCAKE has not crashed this thread yet.

Who are you? Tiffany and Cartier rings "all the way" and now "Sylvia Weinstock all the way"? You're a little too proud of yourself, trying too hard to put down others' choices.

^^^Judging by the link in her signature (which she has made efforts to post in pretty much every forum, it seems), perhaps she is Brenda Myers, Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetics?

LOL. I hadn't noticed that. I do find that a little amusing for someone so passionate about Tiffany and Cartier. I know, I know, lots of women love Mary Kay...but I don't know many women that would call it top-of-the-line. It gives me a rash.

Maybe Mary Kay is now giving away pink Sylvia Weinstock cakes along with the Cadillacs?

Has anyone been to a wedding that they have a Cupcake Wedding Cake? http://www.ouroneheart.com/wedding-cupcake/ I love the idea and if I ever get married, that is what I'll do.

KSUViolet, I have been to several weddings in NE Ohio where they have served cheesecake. But, the more popular cake (particularly in the Italian community) is the Cassata wedding cake. It's fabulous!

Maybe if it would work if it comes directly from the freezer, but I still don't recommend it.
I went to a wedding two years ago where they had Dairy Queen cakes - there was one for each table of 8 or 10. It was yummy but they were still hard to slice, we could have used a knife in addition to a cake server!

I saw a MK Cadillac the other day! It was crazy - the woman driving it looked sort of busted and didn't have her "face" on for sure.

One of my law school classmates did this at her wedding last May. She had pink and brown cupcakes to match her colors.

We had seriously considered doing cupcakes at our wedding, but the baker that does the best cupcakes was already booked. I'm not hugely crazy about wedding cake.

We're having about 150 people. There's a bakery in our area known for their wedding packages. Essentially we're having a cake that will feed about 75 people then an array of desserts as well (cheesecake, pies, tortes, cakes, etc. - we get 7 choices, and they're huge and we can always add more if we want). So everyone can get something they like. It's actually extremely reasonable. Which is surprising considering that the baker does the desserts for some of the more high end restaurants in the city. Plus, of course, we WILL have an enormous cookie table!

Tentatively we've picked white cake with fudge filling with strawberries. Apparently some people think this is odd. Chocolate and strawberries don't go together??? Hello, chocolate-covered strawberries? It tasted fabulous.

No idea what I want the cake to look like. Our colors are blue and platinum. Thankfully don't have to deal with the look of the cake for a few more months.

Cake tasting was my fiance's favorite part of wedding planning so far. Though he did enough registering

*whew* I'm glad you got the important part down!

Most wedding cakes really don't taste very good - I usually head right for the groom's cake whenever available!

But the wedding cakes are looking really beautiful right now. I was told that, since the fondant that looks so lovely tastes somewhere between eh and nasty, the bride should consider asking the baker to put a thin layer of some sort of jam on the cake prior to draping the fondant.

Instead of cake, my niece will be having individual servings of peach cobbler that will somehow be banked like a cake. Somehow, that goes perfectly with her personality!

Our daughter has talked her sister, who bakes cakes as a sideline, into making her cakes. They're discussing lots of different ideas right now but she does like one that has the layers set on at different angles like ADqtPiMel's cake.

I had a cake tasting on Saturday, and the baker put a generous layer of buttercream under the fondant. I thought it tasted great with the fondant, but my fiance loved that it was easy to peel it off, and he still got tasty icing underneath
