Wedding Cakes!

I have a feeling the economy might get worse before it gets better, as a result I am looking for ways to trim our svelte wedding budget even further. I'm searching everything I can to make our day fun and cost efficient.

One of the things I kind of fell in love with was the idea of making our own cake. My mother made her own wedding cake- I think it would be a sweet tradition to make my own as well!

I definitely won't have sprinkles on our actual wedding cake. I felt inspired by the swift approach of Valentine's Day to do something mushy and colorful.
