Our Wedding {The Cakes}

Jan 31, 2013

Probably one of the highlights of our wedding (at least to me) was our cake table.
Josh and I both had the hardest time trying to choose just one cake flavor, so we figured we would just choose them all!
My grandmother and two aunts are terribly talented when it comes to cooking, and they so graciously offered to help us out by providing most of our cakes!
We had a total of 8 flavors, 3 of each cake:
margarita cake
strawberry cake
red velvet cake
peach cake
german chocolate cake
pound cake
caramel cake (made by Joan Almond)
king cake (from Julie Anne's Bakery in Shreveport)
Another thing I really wanted to incorporate into the reception was cake pulls.
It is an old birthday/wedding tradition to insert charms into cakes, allowing each girl to grab the ribbon and pull one out.
Every charm came with a card that tells the charms meaning, like "you will be the next to kiss your prince charming" or "your future is filled with world travels"and things like that.
I actually bought the charms on Etsy (coming up in a later blog post) but I'm sure it wouldn't be too challenging to make them yourself.
As parting favors for our guests, we had an assortment of cake pops provided by SugarBeeSweets of Ft. Worth.
These cake pops were part of our package from winning the Texas Wedding Guide's engagement photo contest last fall.
Even though I wasn't able to eat a cake pop in time (because they mysteriously all disappeared into peoples stomachs before the reception was over) I heard they were incredible!

I'm sure I've said it before, but I'm loving your wedding posts!

Each one becomes my new fave! I'm especially interested in the cake situation since I love to bake. In fact, I'll probably spend some time with cakes and experimenting with pops because your post really has me feeling inspired.

Wow, I sound like a cheese ball...I just really loved it!
