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!).

How precious! The icing looks so creamy and delicious. Just goes to show, you don’t have to to spend an arm and a leg to find the perfect cake. :-)

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!
