We chose to go a different route with our cakes and I'm so happy we did. Instead of spending a ton of money on a tiered cake that sure, looks gorgeous, but still tastes like cake (duh!) we opted to do mini bundt cakes and a larger cutting cake. We ordered 21 dozen Bundtinis from Nothing Bundt Cakes in 3 flavors (lemon, red velvet & chocolate, chocolate chip) and ordered our cutting cake from Whole Foods. The cakes were displayed on wood rounds surrounded by candles, our cake topper was from Deliziare on Etsy, and our knife & server set was actually a Goodwill find (never opened or anything!)
Our cutting cake was almost pure chocolate so I told J as soon as we ordered it that there would be no cake smashing! I wasn't worried about getting it all over my face or hair or whatnot, I just didn't want it on my dress. So his pay back for me telling him no was to bite my finger instead! Oh that man.
After we cut the cake, our guests got to choose their bundt flavors, grab a cup of hot chocolate and watch the slideshow I had put together. It was a super fun project for me to do and our guests really enjoyed seeing all the pictures and getting a chance to rest from all the dancing!
And if you didn't already know that J and I love to have fun together, here's more proof!
This photo cracks me up!
