totally agree horrible horrible horrible to my eye anyway.
I just did a very interesting modern paisley wedding cake... bride is a graphic designer and did the invites herself - very modern no frills chill girl - groom picked up the topper and brought it home, one of the few things he wanted so she said yes. All tulle, fake flowers, ruffles, lace, white heart, at least the little figures were kind of cute. I took pics of the cake BEFORE I put on the topper. I tried to fix it a little for her ripping off some of the lace and adding hot pink ribbon and fabric.
The worst part is that all that (r@p is expensive! the topper they brought me still had the price tag $30! Even if you rent it - its going to be expensive.
I never understood the combo of fountains and cake. Does anyone know where this trend came from? Why would you want water near a cake? Why would you want to make people think of peeing when they look at the cake
? Ok maybe thats going a little far but I really dont understand.
