Mr. Poodle's mom "B" has being soo helpful and supportive on this “sometimes kind of weird” planning process. I think I would still be "google-ing" every wedding related term if it wasn’t because the day after Mr. Poodle told his family we were getting married, she sent me:
- The Wedding Book by Mindy Weiss and Lisbeth Levine
- and tons of bridal magazines(yay!)Those are actually the only ones I have.
Anyway on my last trip to California, long before Mr.Poodle and I thought about getting marry, I saw that B had a really cute photo album with tons of wedding cake pictures on it. I was very surprised that she actually bake them and REALLY impressed with every cake she has on her album portfolio (I think I should make her a web page portfolio soon, cause she’s amazing! What you think B?)
So the first image that pop to my head when I first thought about cakes was, of course, HER album!! And yeah Mr. Poodle said it before me, he wanted to ask her to bake the cake, so it was perfect!!!
I know how great she is so I wasn’t even worried about looking at cake pictures, plus lately I’ve been just focusing on trying to finish the cake topper (Link) But last night I thought to myself! :o hey!! Come on Miss Poodle.. You need to at least give her ideas!! That came to my mind after being so mad at a client that told me that she loved so much all my Web Designs, so she’ll just leave it up to me, not giving me any clue of what she wanted. All the sudden the B’s wedding cake portfolio came to my mind -> Ohh!! Noo I’m doing the exact same thing to her!! :O
I know I would love whatever she makes, but I just don’t want her to be mad at me because I’m leaving everything up to her lol.
So here's my inspiration wedding cake:
Ok, so this one is not on my favorites as a cake - I want something more rustic, but I loved the firefighter ♥ ( In case you don't know that's Mr. Poodle's job) I really loved the cakes form Pink Cake Box (link) they have a great gallery.
Now this one, I had to post just because It has climbers!!! Just like our cake topper, but in our case I would rather have a normal cake with just the toppers.
Now lets focus on the cakes not the toppers :) I've been researching over rustic cakes. The first thing I notice was that cigars are HOT on the wedding cake industry now :) and... I LIKE IT!!
But, I'm afraid it can turn in to a too dramatic cake, because there's going to be so much going on, with the cigars and Mr.Poodle climbing there with me on the top :D So I looked over nice softer textures.
And some plane cakes too with lil blossoms ( Just like my origami ones yay!) This are awesome :)
What about a purple cake??? :o too cute!
I was just kidding with that last one, I don't want a purple cake, purple details, yeahh! :D
Where did you got your cake from?
