I see many blogs with advice on how to save money on a wedding cake. While some of them are great tips, most of them are horrible. Here are some of the most popular money saving tips that won't save you money:
So, now that we're all bummed from the busted bubble, here are some proper ways to save money on your cake:
Austin is well known for their rustic venues and brides swoon over different ideas to capture that rustic feel into their cake. I am so excited about this cake we made for a precious couple at Twisted Ranch this past weekend. Design and floral by Pink Parasol tied everything together in a pretty little bow to make the entire wedding flow perfectly.
The bride and groom wanted a grand elegant wedding cake that tied to their theme of rustic chic. So we got to work designing! The 4 tiers gave the cake a grand appearance while the hand painted brush strokes gave the design a tree-like resemblance. To make the cake even more rustic, buttercream barbwire cascaded down most of the tiers. The third tier encompassed a hand painted heart with their initials to give the cake a cute, personalized factor. And the fondant belt buckle completed the rustic look. However, you can't have a rustic chic wedding cake without the chic. Enter the beautiful spider mums and a touch of bling. Adorning each spider mum is a small cluster of rhinestones, just for a little pop of bling. And incorporated in the belt buckle are some small silver dragees, giving the buckle a little pop of pizzaz!
And what is the point of a cake if it doesn't melt in your mouth? This adorable rustic chic cake was a French Vanilla Cake with a Strawberry Filling and Buttercream Icing. How's that for yumm!!

It's that time again! Time for the Austin Bridal Extravaganza! In case you missed the details....it'll be held this Sunday, June 11th from noon to 5:00 pm at the Palmer Event Center!
Now that we got the fine print out to the way, let's talk about the show! There is so much I don't even know where to begin. I don't want to overwhelm you, so I'll just touch on one of the most important "do not do prior to the show" things that almost every bride does.
Do Not Eat Prior To The Bridal Extravaganza!!!
The show starts at noon and your mom and best gal pals are with you. It's only natural to want to grab a light lunch to enjoy the company and fill up before a long day of wedding shopping. But, don't do it!
The Bridal Extravaganza is filled with cakes, catering, and other delicious treats. And of course, they will be offering samples of some of their tastiest and most mouth watering treats and appetizers. This is a great opportunity for you to sample for you to sample some of the best caterer's and cake bakers in Austin side by side. In fact, it's the only place that you can! You don't want to be so full from lunch that you miss this opportunity. Come hungry. Sample the catering. Enjoy the cakes and treats. You will definitely be full by the time you leave, but you will have either found the perfect caterer or baker or will be well on your way!
See you all at the show on Sunday!!
