Okay, your damn blog is so amazing because it finally gives me a forum to vent about ...... (da duh da dah!) WEDDING CAKES. I am pastry chef and wedding cake designer and I have been driven to the edge of the cliff with wedding cakes. STOP WATCHING THESE FUCKING SHOWS WITH CRAZY INTENSE WEDDING CAKES THAT YOU CAN'T AFFORD. Do you notice that they NEVER give you the final cost of these magnificent creations? You want to know why? Because they are more than a two damn mortgage payments (depending on your house :)!!!
There is NO SHAME in getting a small beautifully designed cake that fits your budget. I want brideys to seriously THINK about the questions they ask their cake designers. Honestly, you know a 3-4 tiered wedding cake COVERED with handmade gum paste flowers isn't going to cost $200! SERIOUSLY. C'mon... You probably paid more for your veil, right?
This is not to turn brides off from the process, it's just to say, stop with the bullshit questions, like . . . "You know the color tiffany blue right? I want it to be exactly that color and if its not then we are going to problems!". You know what I want to say to that comment . . . "Who doesn't fucking know that color? BEAT IT with the tiffany blue already, I want you to get some fucking CREATIVITY and step out of the box!" Again, if you want tiffany blue for your wedding, there is nothing WRONG with that, just don't treat your cake designer like an idiot. If they are a popular producing bakery they have probably made 100 tiffany blue cakes at this point . . . they get it.
Listen, I love all my brides... they rock and their choices usually rock (except the cupcake thing I agree - enough) just stop getting caught up in the hype and bitching about things you don't understand. YOU trusted your baker enough to hire them, research their work, get through the tasting and place your order, so assume you are being taken care of. We will let know if we run out of blue coloring .... haha! Just joshn' - take care brideys and have beautiful and delicious weddings :)
Okay, go ahead and put my head on stake now.
