Okay so I hated the fact that we would be cutting a fake cake at the hotel.
I NEVER knew it was cardboard, until I saw one which had IED lights in it and I practically went “uh-huh”.
So fake cake -A big no no.
I know for a fact that real wedding cakes on US reality TV shows are US10k and up so I wanted to just save the money.
Thanks to a friend, after seeing CRUMMB cakes, I knew I had to have one, check out her FB page!
Her cakes are simply too gorgeous to eat:
And my all time favorite cake from her:
Too bad it doesn’t fit our theme, besides I don’t think we can afford that.
So, I managed to persuade the boy to get a real cake. Super stoked!
Quickly got in touch with Paulin from CRUMMB before the boy changes his mind.
Her prices – very reasonable:
These prices are just the white fondant and basic decorations, basically before the add-ons.
5+7+9 inches, able to feed 144 guests = $580
5+8+11 inches, able to feed 192 guests = $770
6+8+10 inches, able to feed 192 guests = $770
6+9+12 inches, able to feed 252 guests = $1,010
7+9+11 inches, able to feed 240 guests = $960
8+10+12 inches, able to feed 300 guests = $1,200
5+7+9+11 inches, able to feed 256 guests = $1,150
6+8+10+12 inches, able to feed 332 guests = $1,490
6+8+10+12+14(fake) inches, able to feed 332 guests = $1,970
Decided to do what I love to do – making illustrations and thus the cake goes without exception.
Our theme was a watercolour wedding with splashes of whites, neutrals and dirty greyish pastels.
I like the brushstroke effect both on cake and flowers – like using a brush to randomly paint on canvas (hmm, this makes me want to paint again). Paulin from CRUMMB has never tried this effect before but she would probably be the best person to try it too. Meeting her 7 Sep – let see how it goes, I have absolute faith in her taste and creations!
