  • what type of decorations or flowers are you going to have? maybe put the same type of flowers on the cake, you could order extra flowers and have them put them take off the stem and put them around the base. for favors, my sister and i made candies (you can buy molds at walmart, art stores, even some party supply stores) we did hers in shell shapes b/c she got married at the beach, but you could do hearts or all kinds of other things. and they are so simple to make, you just melt the stuff (it is called candy melts or something like that sold next to the molds) and pour it in then put it in the fridge for about 30 mins. it takes awhile if you have alot of people coming, but you can space it out over a few days instead of doing it all at once. thats the way we did it, she had 10 molds i had 10 molds and we spent about 2 days doing 2 batches a day then we got together and put them in pretty little pales (beach again but you CONT

  • Those colors say Cat In The Hat to me, which I actually love but I had a very whimsical wedding. Hmmm. Can't help with design except to say a piano keyboard. Otherwise, white cake with raspberry filling and creamcheese frosting is good or lemon poppyseed and then some chocolate one which also has raspberry filling sometimes.

  • Hey best friend actually had that same theme for her wedding and it turned out VERY elegant and was amazing. She and I put the whole thing together actually.
    Her cake was 4 tiers, covered in fondant, had a back ribbon around each tier, and red carnations in a globe that separated the cake in the middle. It was beautiful. I'll send you a pic if I can :D
