If you have no idea about the ups and downs I've been through regarding my dream cake, view here. If not, I'll quickly sum it up. Wanted an elaborate DREAM cake but couldn't afford to give up my arm and leg ($15-1800). So I decided to venture out of day dreaming and live in the NOW!!
So here's what I came up with.....
CATERING TO THE TASTE BUDS:
- 4 tier cake
- sponge cake
- fresh fruit filling
- whipped cream frosting
CATERING TO THE EYE:
I'd love to do a complete mock up of this cake. The simplicity yet extra ordinary-ness of this sculpture appeals to me like no other. Classically done!
With these hanging crystals toppers.

Thanks to HMM (a fellow PW bride), I am hoping to mimic this table. Just a few changes to accommodate our colors. IE: A bed of white/ivory rose pedals and letters will be in gold.

and last but not least.... a DIY project in the makings!!... I decided to do something a little different than the famous "I DO" letters and now the "AMORE" Project Wedding icon letters. Here is what one of my bridesmaids, Amy suggested. I loved it and now running with it!!

All I have to do is spray paint the letters gold and IT'S A WRAP!! Phew, I thought I'd never get over this cake dilemma!
