Wedding Cakes - A Thing of the Past?

With the popularity of Amy Atlas-style sweet tables, wedding cakes may be taking a backseat to sweets for the first time, well, ever. Honestly, I cannot see wedding cake becoming a thing of the past. However, with couples personalizing their weddings more than ever, I am seeing couples skip a traditional wedding cake in lieu of something they love more - whether that is ice cream, pie, cookies, candy or something more unique.

These three modern, wedding cakes have all been featured on this blog over the past three years for one reason or another, and I still love the look of each one. If I were to get married in 2010, I'd order the same exact cake I did in 2007 - I loved our simple cake, and I've come to realize I'm more traditional than modern by a long shot!

What about you...are you having a traditional cake? Sweet table? Serving Grandma's homemade apple pies? I'd love to know what 2010-2011-2012 brides are planning on serving their guests!

I haven't been blogging for a while and came upon this - you wrote it just 5 days before I got married!

I made my own wedding cake, in the UK, and transported it to Israel, where Marc and I were married.

In Israel people don't have wedding cakes, so it was hard to find vendors, and frankly I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars when I could do it myself for virtually nothing, so I did, and it was a blast, and SUCH a funny story to recount! It's one of the things I loved the most about our wedding! Photo on my blog soon!
