Let them eat cake

As a professional bridesmaid, I have seen (and tasted) my fair share of wedding cakes.

And while I don't even really like cake that much (other than cassata cake, which I could quite possibly eat by the truckful), I do admire the craftsmanship that goes into creating a showpiece that serves as the sweet ending for a bride and groom's big day.

That said, some brides can definitely go overboard when designing their wedding cakes. I mean, have you seen the pic that accompanies this post? Nothing says "This day is all about us" quite like a life-size statue of the bride only, right?

(Side note: how many friggin' people were at that wedding? How could they possibly need that much cake?)

Anywhooo... as a single gal who is often home alone, I randomly read a lot of blogs when you people are on dates with your husbands and boyfriends. And whenever I mosey on over to a blog called Cake Wrecks, I get sucked in for hours reading about professional cake decorating gone bad.

Imagine my delight when I found this recent post all about wedding cake fails (where the brides provided "inspiration" cake pictures to their bakers and received... well... you be the judge).

Whoa. I think I just discovered what the opposite of a "sugar high" is. Yikes.

I love cakewrecks! I wondered if the bottom of the bride cake was fake just to make it the size it is.

We agree, that cake is hideous. It's too bad that what people will remember about the wedding won't be the adorable bride and groom, but instead the ridiculous cake. Whenever your in need of a fabulous cassata cake check out ours We promise you that the only ridiculous thing about our cakes is that they taste ridiculously good!
