To Cake Or Not To Cake?

with 8 comments


Sometimes they just kill you! Especially when opinions are involved.

So far this week we have found the following:

  • Dress
  • Photographer
  • Officiant
  • Location
  • Rings
  • Food
  • Co-ordinator

Pretty good for two full-time working individuals who said they’d have a “simple affair”.

Now the issue of a cake keeps coming up in discussions with friends and family. I used my favorite method for finding things, Google, and came up with several options.

There’s the “Barbie Cake”:

Barf-ie Cake

The Bella Palermo Cake:

Holy Huge!

And my personal favorite, the Tacky Living Cake:

Twinky Cake

With so many choices, my head is left swimming.

So, I’m asking all of you for help… Would it be completely awful to have a Costco sheetcake or cheesecake in the place of the aforementioned delicacies?

PLEASE advise.

  1. I’ve always loved cupcakes, myself. And it’s Easter, which means I can finally have some.

  2. Ingrid,

    I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting your family. I can say, however, that Joe’s side of the family would probably benefit from a dietetic carrot cake with some sort of a sour cream icing. The more traditionalists among us might be satisfied with some small decorations on it, celebrating this auspicious event. Just a thought ….

  3. Bob,

    Thanks for your suggestion! I’m excited to meet you and your wife and hope you won’t be too disapointed by my simplistic taste. I’m actually thinking the Hostess cake looks pretty good!

    See you in July.

  4. Wow. Ingrid, Joe, you two have managed to make more wedding arrangements in a week than my roommate did in five months. Well done.

    As for cakes, my cousin got three smaller cakes of different flavors with minimal decorations. I don’t know where they were from. The cakes were delicious, which is all that mattered!

  5. dude.

    erica makes the best small wedding cakes…and they are cheap! and then you could do sheet cakes for everyone else, and the little wedding cake for the “wedding party”

    oh yea…will the cake need to be in seattle?

  6. Ingrid,

    Knowing you as I do can I just say you have really tackled this wedding with gusto. It was only a week ago when you sent the happy news and here you are almost done with the planning.

    As cakes go this is now the age where you can do anything you want so go for it. I do know of this fantasitc Lemom Pound cake that is to die for. 🙂

  7. Ingi you rock! I can’t believe how much you’ve got planned so quickly! As far as cake goes, do whatever is easiest. Everyone has different opinions, but it’s your wedding. If the cake’s important enough to you, do what you like cheesecake, brownies, prejitura cu fructe si ingheteata…sau if you don’t care do your cheap simple cakes. If anyone is disappointed than they’re coming to your wedding for the wrong reason.
    Oh and about your date…it’s like 2 weeks after my due date so let’s hope the baby comes early. Se vedem.

  8. Ingrid — Thanks so much for the great info on saphires. I’ve always been quite fond of them for their beauty but now I can add depth to my reasons for purchase!! And your ring is the best!!!

    I also would like to thank you both for setting up this great blog so we can all share in your wonderful adventure!! You’re doing a remarkable job of getting it all together. And letting us all be a part will make the final celebration just that much greater!!
