inspiration #4

First order of business: Sorry we haven’t been around. Not much planning activity has occurred in a few weeks and I just got back from a quick trip to Orlando to run race have fun in Disney World with Amanda. Fun definitely was had and I am thankful I no longer have to pretend I was in training. (I’ll post pics soon – and don’t worry Amanda, you’ll have them this weekend!)

Anyway, tomorrow is a fun planning activity, probably the one I was most looking forward to of all the planning activities (minus the dress, of course.)

The Cake!

Oh, I love cake. I believe it is the breakfast of champions, the perfect complement to coffee. Though it can also count as the lunch, dinner, snack, or dessert of said champions too. Not that I would know.

Like many things about the wedding, the cake is something I had clear-cut ideas about. It was going to be a funky, colorful, fondant-covered masterpiece with uneven layers and really graphic designs.

Exhibits A through C:

And like so many things about the wedding, what I thought I wanted is in fact, not what I want at all.

While I appreciate that these are interesting and very beautiful, they’re leaving me a bit cold. It somehow doesn’t feel like me and Eric at all! Plus, I wouldn’t want to put my lovely owl cake toppers on top of these modern marvels would I?

While researching everything wedding, the cake comes up a lot. Now-a-days, it seems there’s a lot more flexibility when it comes to the cake. You can choose something modern like those above. You can choose cupcakes. You can choose to not have cake. You can choose pie. You can choose candies or cookies or whatever.

You can also choose white.

Never in a million years would I think I wanted a white buttercream wedding cake. How boring! I would’ve retorted.

Exhibit D:

Lovely. Exhibit E:

Bad picture (from a mag) but … swoon.

I think my little owls will look right at home! Now where can I ride my bike tomorrow after cake fest 2010?
