I have a lot of favourite things.
China, especially delicate bone china teacups. Pretty stationery. Television. Throw pillows. My family. Old silver serveware. New York side streets. Traveling. My friends. My new blog friends. Everything Christmas. Babies. And weddings.
One of my most favourite wedding things is wedding cakes.
Right now we are all helping one of my sisters (did I tell you I have five sisters and one sister-in-law who I consider my sister?) plan her wedding, and it makes me nostalgic, thinking of ours. It was such an amazing day and I wouldn't change a thing. We got married at our former high school, totally transforming the school's dining hall for our reception space. We have tons of DIY ideas from it which I'll be sharing here.
Anyway, I'll tell you all about it someday, but right now thought I'd just take a minute to share one of my favourite things - our wedding cake. A tall, white, sugar beauty.
The top tier we saved for our anniversary, and the bottom three tiers were sliced and served. The rest was actually faux, just decorated styrofoam. The topper was a pure sugar creation our fabulous cake designer threw in for free. I heart her. We had three distinct flavours - spice cake with mango filling, classic vanilla and a decadent lindt chocolate.
Here we are (recognize those toasting flutes from this post?)
And look at my Mom and Dad and their pretty cake - also all white.
Show me your wedding or your favourite cakes!
Ah, weddings.... can't wait to show you more of ours and other favourite weddings we've been to.
Would love to see yours!
