Our Wedding Cake

Home » CELEBRATE » Our Wedding Cake

I really wanted to make the cake for our wedding day back in 2009, but my husband put his foot down and said I would be too stressed. He was right… in the final few weeks leading up to the wedding I was so busy, that fitting in making a cake too would not have been a good idea!

We visited a lot of local wedding shows when we first started to plan our wedding, and eventually found a cake maker who we felt would give us what we wanted. My only guidance to her was purple and hearts, and I think she hit the nail right on the head!

I remember walking into the Dining Room and seeing our cake for the first time. You can even hear me on the wedding DVD say “Oh wow! Look at our cake!” It was so pretty, and we loved it. The bottom layer was traditional fruit cake, then there was a vanilla layer, and finally a chocolate layer.

We bought a cake knife and slice set, which came with free engraving, so we got them engraved with our names and our wedding date. I then tied some purple ribbon around them. It still bugs me that the ribbon doesn’t match the cake ribbon!

We did a fake cake cutting for photographs, and then we cut the cake for real in the evening, when the rest of our guests arrived.
