Sleep On It
It's a great idea. A bride can save money by making her own wedding cake. Hundreds of dollars. But if you decide to make your own wedding cake, at least sleep on these thoughts for a night or two.
- Your wedding cake will be a key focal point of your most important day.
- When the bridal party is posing for pictures in the park, your reception guests will be doing a 360 ogle of your wedding cake.
- Your wedding cake will be the one thing photographed and commented on nearly as much as you and your new hubby.
- The pans, ingredients, flowers, boards and all the other things you need to create your wedding cake, might end up costing you nearly as much as getting a professional to do it.
- This will be your wedding, hopefully your only wedding, and your only wedding cake, reason enough to rethink the whole do-it-yourself angle.
If you've considered these caveats and still insist on baking and decorating your own wedding cake, there are lots of things to do. Check out the links below for lots of information to guide you on your bold wedding cake journey.
