When is a wedding cake not a “Wedding Cake”?

Not all wedding cakes are multi-tiered confections.

Some couples choose something simpler yet still beautiful and delicious.

These wedding cakes are well suited for a frugal blog.

    I really like the idea of sheet cake with a nice monogram. It’s kind of silly that we’ve gotten locked into this idea that a wedding cake “needs” to be a multi-tiered affair. Something else could be the big centerpiece of the table, besides cake. Or, at the very least, the monogrammed sheet cake idea could be used as a supplement to a small tiered cake. Hmmm, no weddings for me to plan, any time soon, but fun to think about.

    I like the cake buffet, as well. Did your bakery do all of those cakes on the table? Wilton makes a stand that holds 3 cakes at different levels, without looking like a “tiered” cake. It would be perfect for several different types of cakes (someone donated one of those stands to our church). But, also simply using cake pedestals that friends/family may already own would be a very frugal choice for doing a cake buffet.

    • Thanks for commenting Lili,
      Yes, we made all five cakes. from left to right they are Coconut Cream Cake, Chocolate Raspberry Torte, Carrot Cake, Tiramisu Cake, and Princess Torte.
      These cake stands belonged to the venue, or maybe the wedding planner. I like the fact that although they don’t “match” they look great together because they are all milk glass.
      With three grown children weddings can’t be too far off in your future:)
