Soft Tropical Wedding Cake

Alright folks…this is about as friendly of a wedding cake as it gets! This sweet thing was made by our local Whole Foods baker for $50. I just drew him a picture, picked out the cake and frosting, stuck some fresh ‘blushing bride’ protea in the top and voila!

    As cakes become more and more outrageous (in good and bad ways), I like how people are reacting with things that actually look homemade (and even more delicious!).

    Beautiful. When it come to cakes, I’m a fan of the simple cake with fresh flowers. Whole Foods in a great option – I had them to do smaller cakes in rough buttercream frosting for my wedding, served on two different cake stands. Perfect and both for under $100!

    Simple is so beautiful. And it’s looks much more delicious that your typical frilly cake.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I’ve been scouring the web trying to find a reasonable baker in the bay area, that doesn’t have a $300 min. for a small reception, and I think you just talked me into whole foods cake, I was already planning on whole foods for a dessert table, but I can DIY! Thank you again!

    OMG, I am in heaven! Which exact while foods did you go to?

    (I have had bad luck in the past w/the bakery in whole foods, help!)
