The Reception: The Cake

Our cake was red velvet and super delicious. So much so that I'm pretty sure my dress didn't fit as well when we left the reception as it did when I arrived... Needless to say I was pretty pleased that Dan wasn't one of those smash-the-cake-in-her-face type of people.

I wanted a really simple cake and I almost didn't even get a cake with tiers, but then I found some vintage inspiration and loved this simple two tier cake. I found the vintage cake topper on etsy and the cake cutter things were from Ikea which I customized with ribbon. Looking at cake cutters at wedding shops was ridiculous! 30 bucks for a tacky cake cutter? No thanks. I think ours were 5 bucks plus a couple dollars for the ribbon. Plus they matched our wedding colors!
