Wedding Wednesday: Cakes

Today is less than twelve weeks until my wedding! I'm so excited. I have a fun weekend planned full of bridesmaid dress and centrepiece shopping with my mum and bridesmaids. Today I'm going on a hunt for the perfect wedding cake. With everything else for our wedding, Adam and I have known what we want. With our cake, we're clueless! We really like lots of different cakes, but don't want to spend a lot on one. So many people I know are so good at baking, but I don't want to put the stress on anyone to make ours. I'd like to make it myself, but don't know if it would be too much - especially because I want to DIY so much anyway. This cake is my favourite one:

But I think this might be too summery for a winter wedding.

I love this one, and I think it would be quite simple for me to make myself. You can buy plain, ready iced tiers from Marks & Spencer, and then I could have a friend help me out with the snowflakes.

These cupcakes are absolutely beautiful, and I want to have at least some cupcakes, think I'll definitely be making these! I love them.

Also, there's a local bakers to us who does absolutely GORGEOUS (looking and tasting!) cakes, but they're a little on the expensive side. I'm going to call there on my way to uni today for some prices.

What are your favourite cakes or cupcakes?

Good luck finding the perfect cake! I loved the idea that a friend used at her wedding. She and her husband had a 3-tier cake: 1 layer was her favorite, 2nd layer was his favorite and third was one they both loved!

I loved planning my own wedding and have been obsessed with weddings ever since. I think the top cake is sooo cool because it is so unusual and so unexpected. I think it would be awesome for you to make your own cake but could get pretty stressful when you are in crunch time!
