I'm at work. I'm bored. My mind is wondering.

As a decorator, who would you contract to make your wedding cake? I'm no where near getting married, but I already told my family, I can care less about decorations and such. I will be spending a good amount of $$ on the cake though. I would LOVE Rosebud Bakery in L.A. to do it.

Picking from Cake Central I would go SugarShack..I feel like I know her from her videos and I love her the world it would be Bronwen Webber...I love her stuff...especially the truly unique pieces.

Since you brought this up I have to share a funny story. I'm engaged and the first thing everyone asked me was "Am I making my own wedding cake". I said no way.. too much stress...then came all the questions about where would I get it and what would it look like. I'm having a small very casual mexican wedding (close family and friends ...kind of a big dinner more than a formal wedding) and I decided I wanted to have a desert table where certain friends and family made their signature regular old cakes...Like my friends mom makes the best Lemon Cake..

Is it totally weird to decorate cakes and LOVE cakes and not have a big fancy wedding cake? I just can't see a big fancy cake at our style of wedding...nothing has spoken to me just wondering if I'm nuts....

I am doing the cake for my shower...thoughicon_wink.gif Probably a topsy turvy..

Since we are dreaming here, I would have four smaller cakes, one from Edna, one from Indydebi, one from Sugarshack, and then one from Bronwen Webber, I highly admire and respect all of these Special ppl, and would be thrilled @#&&less to have any of them do my cakes, he&& just show up for that matter.

Bronwen Weber because she is just so cute and makes gorgeous cakes. OR, Sugar Shack or Tonedna. There are so many, it'd be hard to choose. Heck, I'd love to have one by Kerrie Vincent. She's amazing.

Anne @ Pink Cake Box

Sillywabitz - I don't think that is silly at all, I think it a great idea to get the family involved in the wedding. A nice touch.

Not at all sillywabbitz!

For me, making/decorating cakes is what I do, not so much who I am. In my case however, I've already said, I want a big ol' traditional wedding. But I'm normally not one to likes to bring attention to myself.

I don't know but it'd be someone who can make my cake look (and how my mind thinks it'll taste too) like one in the magazine when it's sliced. The ones with the mousse-y looking fillings....chocolate cake with alternating layers of mocha truffle mousse, caramel mousse and white chocolate cream cheese mousse....delicate white cake filled with alternating layers of grapefruit, lemon, and orange curd...butter pecan cake filled with alternating layers of cream cheese, and caramel meringue buttercream icings....


I got married almost 26 years ago and I still dream about the cake I'd have if I ever got married...HAHA!

Cynthia Peithman. She was my first teacher in culinary school and she's an amazing chef and cake artist.

I just hope I can afford her when the time comes icon_smile.gif

sugar shack for one tier, edna for another, and I just found this site

and I'm in cake love, so maybe they could do the 3rd tier.

Lorraine Mckay could do the party favours (little figures at each place setting)

Michelle foster can do my bouquet of gum paste flowers

and the whole thing catered by indydebi cause I just want to listen to her "debi-isims"

oh well, a girl can dream...

Ok, so there are some ppl I forgot, lets just round them all up, kidnapp them, and then have them make everything we can think of, and the best part would be, we would get to watch and learn, then eat cake. (rapidly shaking head to wake up)
But what a nice party huh!

Oh...Shinmin from I Dream of Cake, that website alone is enough to make me drool!!!

Hands down - Bronwen Webber - I would love to even meet her, much less have her make my cake for my (still imaginary) wedding.
