A Wedding Cake Inspired by a Wedding Paper Divas Design

Today we are sharing a wedding cake that was inspired by our wedding invitation Graceful Ginkgo. The lovely cake designer at The Couture Cakery always asks her brides to bring in their inspiration for their wedding cakes and she wanted it to match her wedding invitations! Jasmine did such a beautiful job designing this cake that we had to share!

Rant or Rave: Cake Smashing

Somehow, the tradition of cake cutting morphed into cake smashing. Would you be amused or angry if the cake was smashed in your face? Rant or rave!

Here’s what a few of our Facebook fans had to say:

“I definitely wouldn’t be happy to have the cake smashed in my face! Thanks for reminding me to have this discussion with fiance stat.” – Sally

“We’ll feed each other, and I might get a dab of frosting on his nose, but in no shape or form will there be smashing.” -Tracy

“I have a feeling my fiancé will be a smasher even though I’ve warned him not to. After spending all that time and money on dress, hair, makeup, I don’t want it ruined with fondant! And we’re having such an amazing cake that I would actually like to taste it.” -Leah

“Amused…although my husband was very gentle when he fed me :)” -Jordan

“I would be angry. I’m not high maitenence at all, and I can take a joke very well, but come on! I’m not paying someone to do my makeup to have it smeared off my face by cake! ;)”- Crescent

“It’s disappointing when couples don’t smudge the cake on each other a bit. It shows the couples like to have fun with each other. And it’s a cute moment that reflects their love when they clean the cake of each other.” -Kelsey
