And now :: The Cake

Dress making operations are currently stalled while I wait for a vintage pattern I bought online to come in the mail. The pattern is for a 1970's wedding dress that isn't exactly like the one I chose, but I think we'll be able to modify it to my liking. Pictures to come!

So, while I wait, I'm working on other important details. I have found and booked our location. It will cost us a whopping $70 to rent for the day (not bad). And now I am starting on the cake. I ordered a sheet cake from our local Hy-Vee for all the guest to eat. And I'm planning on making a small wedding cake for show. Here's what I've found that I like so far.

I'm loving the bird cake toppers in this one, but few less layers would be more my style.

I'm completely in love with how delightfully simple this one is.

And again with the simplicity of this one. I think if I had the time to sit here long enough I could find about a thousand cakes that I love. But, the theme that I see throughout all of them is simplicity and of course, pretty cake stands. I think I can handle that. And I am so loving the bird cake toppers. Check out this YouTube tutorial showing how to make love bird wedding toppers. I think I'm going to try it out. I'll post some pictures of these too!
