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.
