opinions on cake...


id be really grateful on opinions on a cake idea, its 3 tier pale pink and white icing with marshmallows cascading down the front ... i really like it as it just looks like huge marshmallows and it ties in with the colour scheme, but a friend of mine said she thought it looked awful so im just wondering if anyone thinks it sounds bad... i dont want all my guests thinking the cake is awful!

thanks image

    i wouldnt care whether she likes it or not it sounds gr8 to me-i like cakes that r a bit different! have you got a photo?

    were having veggie only food at our wedding as we r both veggies most people ave been gr8 about it and those who havent i just say "our day our way" it tends to stop people from saying anything back- but in a light hearted way!

    i think it sounds lovely, its nice to have something different as people will remember it more than a boring wedding cake. we're having a heilter skelter cake with me and h2b and all the wedding party coming down the slide. i'm sure many of the older people will hate it but its what we want. You should go for it!


  • I totally agree with kezzie, We are having a large 3 tier cake with a pink castle on the top, my dad is trying to persuade me to go for flowers instead of a castle as he says it looks like a sandcastle but i have stuck to my guns and we are going to have what we want!!! People seem to forget who's wedding it actually is!!! lol

    Bit rude of your friend to say that! it is just a cake after all, it will get demolish and eaten! and I think it sounds cool!

    I am just having a cutting cake and lots of cup cakes scattered all over the tiers for the guests, saves us cutting them all up in cake slices!

    yep! im glad you like it, i have seen the dress you are in love with and think its stunning so you obvioulsy have great taste!
  • HeidiErdoganHeidiErdogan Posts: 518
    I love the cake, it is beautiful, so go for it, take it from a London girl who likes who think she has taste! I just showed my family too and they all love it, my sister said she is having that cake at her wedding!

    And when it comes to friends, dont listen or take everything they say personally, weddings tends to bring out the green eyed monster in a lot of people, family included!!

    I absolutely love it! Its fun but still looks great, yum yum.
  • jacksukjacksuk Posts: 215
    I think that is cool! I am not showing it to my H2B or he will want that one instead of ours!!! Go for it and ignore you friend - what a horrid thing to say anyway! I think it is different and therefore people will love it and it will be one of those things that make people remember your wedding as different!

    love it love it love it love it!! Im having one with sugarflowers on hand made by my nanny. I love the quirky cakes but she is giving me this as a gift and i do love the beautiful flowers she makes so im going with that. x
  • Fantastic!!!!!!!! If its what you want and it feels right go for it.;\)
  • DarkHor5eDarkHor5e Posts: 885
    we are having a layer of chocolate sponge and two plain sponge...h2b hates fruit so thats out!

    im so glad you all like it... its just a bit different as is a lot of our wedding, im having an ian stuart dress that is not the typical ivory and as a couple we never do things the "normal" way! I just thinks its us!

  • sonymesonyme Posts: 425
    I like it even more now you mention not the 'normal way'. ignore silly comments as others say shes just jealous or only likes traditional..If shes your friend then she should expect the unexpected-our cakes got stripes all over it because like you we like things that little bit different!!!

    I think its fab - hope it tastes as yummy as it looks!!!!!
