J & A Chronicles: Wedding Part VI
Reception: Cake Cutting

After we ate dinner and made our rounds, we immediately cut the cake. If you haven't noticed, we switched up the 'normal' order of things at the reception. We figured it out together and planned it for what WE wanted, not what was the norm.
Our cakes were both made by my mom -- they were DELICIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL!
The groom's cake was italian creme cake made from scratch.
Yes that is a hook and fishing rod tip in the cake. =) It is what The Husband wanted.
I designed the wedding cake based on a lot of different images/deatils that I liked from a ton of inspirational cake pictures. It was almond flavored yellow cake with home-made buttercream frosting. YUM!
Our cake cutting song: I Wanna Grow Old With You - Adam Sandler
 
The cake serving set was a gift from my bridesmaids at my bridal shower
     
He played nice and so did I -- no cake smashing for us =)

We played nice with our cake feeding too! I'm glad to see someone else did. A friend of mine though, he and his wife tried to play nice because they were going to do photos after the reception (just a cake reception) and the cake was yellow... he accidentally dropped cake down the front of her dress. You could tell he felt awful!

Love that groom's cake! Brandon's was in the shape of a marlin, so it looked 3-D. Great minds think alike ;) Have a great weekend! xoxo

Your cake was beautiful! Love your choice for your cake cutting song :):) My husband and I played nice when we fed each other too! It's like I just spent all this money getting my hair and make-up done, you're NOT smashing frosting all over me. Gotta keep it classy ;)
