I know we aren’t going to see any bakeries till next month when we head up to Michigan, but I can’t stop looking at cakes. Now going with our green/white color scheme, I definitely want those two colors to play into the cake. Also, I just want something clean and simple. I don’t need a five layer cake with those pillars holding up the layers, and having more cake than people can eat.

Here’s a couple of cakes that I pulled from the internet that I so far like:

I like this one because of the springiness to it. Would definitely work out for a May wedding.

I don’t much care for the flowers in between every layer, but I like the overall effect with the white cake with green ribbon. Maybe just have the flowers just at the top or the bottom.

Sorta like the second cake, only much more plain. I like the flowers on top, but the cake itself seems like it’s missing something.

Okay, out of all of them, this is my favorite. It has the best of everything that I like. Plain and simple, green and white, a bit of flowers, and the nice thing about it, those simple pin dots add a little something extra to the cake.

Through research I discovered a hidden thing that seemed to be a ‘doh moment for myself. You see people at weddings with gigantic cakes, or you see people with little tiny cakes with vast amounts of guests. Easy way to save money? Get a small two tiered cake and then order a couple of sheet cakes that are left in back. You have your cake for pictures and cutting, but you have the rest waiting to be cut and served.
