I like this cake. I think it’s sort of funny that I like this cake, because our idea is to go with something that looks really homemade. We think this new cakes as art trend is sort of silly. Don’t you want a cake that makes you want to eat it, not one that looks like water lilies doing synchronized swimming in the shape of amorphous love? I mean, yuck. But this cake is simple and clean and modern, so I’ll forgive it for not looking totally like food.
My general rule of wedding planning is this: If you wouldn’t pay for something in the way presented to you in the real world, don’t pay for it in the wedding world. It’s probably a bridal scam. Apparently cakes like this routinely sell for $15 a slice. A SLICE! Who in the real world would buy a whole cake by the slice? Clearly you could argue there were just two slices in a cake, or infinite slices in the cake (hello Zeno’s Paradox). I hate to be the one to do this, but I’m here to tell you that the emperor has no clothes.
Also, when, as a wedding guest have you ever had a encounter with a slice of cake that was worth $15? At best maybe you thought “hey that cakes pretty” and then “hey this cake actually tastes pretty good.” And then Baby Got Back came on.
