Our cake was red velvet and super delicious. So much so that I'm pretty sure my dress didn't fit as well when we left the reception as it did when I arrived... Needless to say I was pretty pleased that Dan wasn't one of those smash-the-cake-in-her-face type of people.
I wanted a really simple cake and I almost didn't even get a cake with tiers, but then I found some vintage inspiration and loved this simple two tier cake. I found the vintage cake topper on etsy and the cake cutter things were from Ikea which I customized with ribbon. Looking at cake cutters at wedding shops was ridiculous! 30 bucks for a tacky cake cutter? No thanks. I think ours were 5 bucks plus a couple dollars for the ribbon. Plus they matched our wedding colors!
