bake me a cake.

I don't think a wedding cake is the first thing that most people imagine about their wedding day, but my mom makes wedding cakes all the time so I've been thinking about mine for a few years now. When I was younger (a lot younger) I wanted this cake from the Wilton cake book, sorry the picture isn't the greatest.

Three separate cakes on a garden cake stand, with lots of buttercream flowers and swagging. Good thing I didn't get married back then.

Now that I'm old and boring, I want a simple wedding cake. Maybe because my mom has to make it and I don't want her to have to spend hours and hours making flowers out of icing. Or maybe because I have more modern taste now and prefer clean lines and not a lot of extra "stuff". Forgive me for the kindergarten drawing skills, but I was imagining what type of cake I'd like to have for the wedding, and rather than spend hours searching for a picture of what I was thinking of, I figured it would be quicker to draw it instead.

A stacked cake with white fondant and fondant pearl trim topped with hydrangeas. Preferably on a pedestal stand, although my mom might kill me because she thinks cakes are going to tip over when they're on a pedestal. With some sort of monogram on the top or possibly in icing on one of the tiers. What do you think, cute or boring?

I really like the cake. Very simple but elegant. However, Mike says it would be even better if it was an ice cream cake. I told him that would not work because it would melt. Stupid boys...
