Why spend a month's income on a wedding cake?

Original and something that will be remembered for a long time by the guests.... I like it!

Funny,...but not all that far removed from reality. At my sister's wedding last Oct,they decided to forgo the expensive (and usally tasteless) wedding cake for a couple of dozen doughnuts from their favorite bakery....actually they were quite good, and a lot less hassle!!! I have seldom had cake as good as these doughnuts Very Happy

I dunno whose wedding — I just picked it up out on the internets. As for what it is — it's junk food snacks from an American food/tobacco giant.

Must say I was quite impressed with action-figurish bride & groom on top. Very cool!

I don't think wedding cakes are considered a must over here. But I'll keep my eyes open for a junk-food dessert buffet.

Yes. ...about 40 years ago and minus the cake. Wink

Fun idea!
I was way picky about my cake, sadly not the baker, total freak. Two days before the wedding I took her the payment and she told me a story about a November wedding she did that was canceled because of a freak snow storm. Some people should not be let out of the kitchen.

....and then there's the cupcake wedding cake thingy which I think is kind of nifty! Though not as decadent and colourful as Rainey's happy little discovery!

Actually, this was turned up by someone writing about the trend of cupcake wedding cakes.

Personally, I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to some things. But, if one of our kids were getting married, I'd think long and hard before spending a king's ransom on something that many don't even bother with at the end of a long wedding/reception. The cupcake thing, attractively arranged, seems like a fine alternative to me and allows for considerable flexibility if allergies/preferences were an issue for some guests. ...not so sure we'd do Twinkies tho. Shocked
