I stressed out about our wedding cake because I know how expensive they are. I was terrified of where to get my cake. I had someone I went to high school with who had recently started an event planning business as my coordinator. So he was always helping me find good deals on stuff.
He recommended a lady who made cakes out of her house for a hobby. It was funny because it turned out it was my husband's cousin. So in my true bargainista fashion I have to brag a little here. She made and delivered both the wedding cake and groom's cake for... get this.... $250!!! And I loved it. It was simple and elegant and delish!
The cake was traditional wedding cake flavored with strawberry cream cheese filling, my fave!
Gotta love our adorable nephew in the front!
And in true Southern tradition- the groom's cake HAD to be red velvet. The groom's cake was very small and simple. My husband's a golfer. So it was a golf course.
I totally forgot to order cake pulls!
I actually hated the way I looked in almost all of the "posed" pictures by the cake, except these since they were so candid!
So there's a little sneak peek at out wedding cake! I've loved looking at everyone else's so far. Thanks Britt for hosting this link up!
