Wedding Inspo// Wedding Cake

The third installation of my wedding inspiration series. Check out my other posts on dresses and flowers

So again, I'm drawn to focuses on flower, nature, minimalism. I think the big, fondant covered wedding cake isn't for me, and I'm really drawn to the "dessert table" option I've seen on a lot of wedding blogs. I think more and more people are choosing cupcakes and multiple pies over the classic, ninety-tiered, gazzilion dollar cake, and I have to say that I like that option much more. 

Again, to each their own, but baking is a big part of mine and Ben's relationship and I'd almost prefer to bake the cakes ourselves or at least have a few different options of our favorite cakes and pies than just pick one flavor.

I think this is the most beautiful cake in the world. The waterfall of peonies! I want to die.

This cake is so beautiful it looked like it just emerged from Neverland or something. Just came right up out of the ground.

I don't know what this is, but I know I want to eat it. 
It's like a desert, winter wedding cake all at the same time. 
Like a cake for sand-fairies.

Though the glaze on that cake makes my teeth hurt, I love the Kinfolk-ness of it all. I think I like the visual aesthetic, though if we decide to get married in the cornfield-venue, I don't know how the tree bark will fit in.
I like the lack of frosting for some reason.



Any of you already-married peeps do the multiple cake thing? Did you bake yourselves or if you didn't how'd you pick the baker? Did anyone just say screw it and do something completely different? Let me know!

  1. Dude, the idea of having a wedding cake stressed me out so bad. It's supposed to be the big thing everyone cares about and looks at and you spend so much money on it. It's just too much considering all the other things you have to worry about.
    I had originally really wanted to have cobblers and pies since ours was a fall wedding and to be honest, I like them way better than cake, but we settled on 3 types of cupcakes that my grandma made: carrot, apple caramel, and spice. Nobody really cares that much about it though. They're way more focused on the bride and groom and socializing than what kind of cupcakes you have. Do what you want, girl!

  2. Ugh, all of those cakes are perfect. Love the idea of either a bare cake with greenery and flowers, or a really simple cake studded with fresh flowers.

    Your wedding is going to be so DREAMY

  3. We had a vanilla cake with buttercream icing and chocolate cupcakes, no fondant on either. We used my moms famous vanilla cake recipe and had my aunt make it and seriously 3 tears of cake and about 50 cupcakes and there was none left:) Most weddings I go to they serve cake at the end and every one is so full and partying and the cake doesn't really get eaten so we decided to serve ours right after the ceremony so everyone was already gathered around while we cut it and we served it with tea and coffee. Since we got married in the afternoon and we knew it would be an hour or two till dinner we served it like afternoon tea, while we had photos taken our guests had tea and cake on the lawn under the trees by the lake:) The pies sound amazing especially if your wedding is in the colder months.

  4. I also don't think you need to pay a fortune for a cake covered in plastic icing, seriously and they always let you taste the cake and then it ends up being dry because they bake it a week before your wedding. My mom does lots of weddings and we haven't done a single one with plastic icing you can seriously make the most beautiful cakes with fresh flowers and just a normal cream cheese or buttercream icing- to get it more white you can use this white powder from cake shops :)

    1. Good tip! I guess it doesn't surprise me, but it's a shame for people who spend so much on money on a crummy cake. truth be told, I've had a bunch of wedding cakes and they've all cracked in my mouth.

      Now I know why.
