Wedding Cakes on a Budget
I love this color combination! Yellow and brown look amazing together.. especially when you add huge sunflowers! This wedding cake was for an awesome couple who wanted a small wedding for mostly family. The only request......CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE!!!! I was honored to find out that they sampled about 4 different companies chocolate cakes, and chose me and my popular Chocolate Truffle Cake. For those who haven't tried the Chocolate Truffle, it's 6 layers of rich chocolate cake filled with a whipped ganache filling and then frosted with more whipped ganache. It is heaven on earth for chocolate lovers.. but make sure you have a tall glass of milk close by!
If you are doing a small wedding and are budget conscious, two or three small layered cakes sitting next to each other are a great option for you. With a few fresh flowers a cute patterned ribbon around the bottom, you have a great looking cake display that could be under $200! This is also a fun idea for bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelor parties, etc. etc. Anytime you have a special event.. you can always make a simple cake look fabulous while having it fit your budget.
