Jenn B's post got me thinking that I literally have NO IDEA what I want to do for our cake. I know we're doing something small-ish for the cake cutting and then having small desserts and potentially sheet cake, but I have barely put any thought into the cake itself.

After a quick look at my Pinterest, I've only ever pinned three cakes (below). Do you mind showing me yours or what your inspiration is?

    1. Inspiration.

    2. What we got.

    We told him to do whatever, because I didn't really care... worth it.

    I love all of these!! They're so pretty! I think I'm really into the layered icing on each tier - I'm sure that has a name, but I have no idea lol

    @Sufergirl for the real flowers, are you having your florist provide those? How do those actually get on the cake? Sorry, probably a stupid question!

    This is what my cake will look like, except the flowers will be eggplant colored and I'll have a caketopper that says-

    "The best is yet to come"

    I keep coming back to this one and FH loves it too. Might add just a touch more color to it in some way if we go with this one.

    My baker actually works with my Florist all the time so my baker is getting the same flowers that my florist is using for my wedding from them. they use flowers that aren't treated with pesticides (or fewer/ properly cleaned flowers) i think so thats why she gets the flowers from them (also so that they are the same colors). i am not sure what my baker would do if i had a different florist, i think she would still go through this florist to get the flowers. I asked the baker and she has the flowers in my contract already because i wasn't sure who was providing them.

    you would need to ask your baker about using real flowers, there was one bakery i was looking at that said that they did not use real flowers. So in the case where a baker does not provide/use real flowers i guess you would have to have the florist provide them for you and have someone place them on the cake day of.

    Here is my inspiration. Our baker is doing 4 tiers instead and each tier is 6" high. I want my cake to look tall...

    I don't have a photo, but ours will be similar to the blue ombre one you picked out, but it will be smoothed buttercream with mountains in the distance on the bottom tier, and then get lighter. Actually similar to my avatar.

    My florist said that real flowers isn't a good idea for a summer wedding. She said since it'll be a long day they will look dry and droopy by the time we have to cut the cake. We're doing sugar flowers.

    @HereComeTheYorks Love, love, love that bottom tier!

    @Jen so cute! I'm not a huge fan of cupcakes or our wedding, but I do really like the cupcakes in the shape of a cake like that!

    @WWKatie -- your first photo (the blue ombre buttercream) is similar to our cake-spiration!! We are just doing a small 4 inch cutting cake, but with that look. Then cupcakes like below.
