These cakes made me start drooling — y'all can keep your fondant-covered multi-tiered cakes. I'm sure they're delicious! But for me, it's all about cakes covered in flowers and fruits, like these cakes from Ivonne and Josh's 2004 wedding.
Oh and check out Ivonne's dress! Holy hell…
Anyway, for more info about how Ivonne saved a fortune on her cakes, keep reading.
I wrote to Ivonne and asked her for a few more details about the cakes. Here was her response!
I am a big fan of a San Diego bakery called Extraordinary Desserts. Their “wedding cakes” were ridiculously expensive, so we just ordered a bunch of their regular cakes for a “party” and picked them up. We did it to save money, and ended up with 7 different flavored cakes for a cake buffet where everyone got the kind they wanted.
It helps that the company normally decorates their cakes with ribbon and flowers. it worked out and the guests LOVED it. We had take out boxes handy so people could take it home too so at the end of the night it was a centerpiece and cake free for all.
