Dear Future Hubby,
On Tuesday night, I was fortunate enough to attend Kick Ass Cake Bash, the launch of the Broke Ass Cake Collection from Broke Ass Bride, Fresh Hubby, and Fantasy Frostings. It was a fabulous event, complete with delicious cake, rocking tunes, and male models galore. My favorite had to be the guy wearing the black leather shirt underneath a white leather blazer. While there with my friends BowieBride, Kate, and new friend A Los Angeles Love, I found out some interesting information regarding wedding cakes. Did you know that most cost $7 a slice? Dude, if we have a huge wedding, as I’m sure it will be since hell, it’s called Gaelic Gala, that’s going to be something like $1750-$2000 for a cake alone, never mind if I want to do something redonk fancy to it. I mean, yes, we will be winning the lotto in order to make Gaelic Gala happen, but speaking as someone that is currently paying off students loans, that number is insane.
I love that Broke Ass Bride and Fresh Hubby have teamed up with Fantasy Frostings to create a line of cakes that are beautiful and taste delicious, but are more reasonably priced than $7 a slice. No joke, they are delicious. Like “Sweet Lady Jane Triple Berry Cake” delicious, and I don’t just say that about every cake that comes around the block. Every girl should be able to have the cake they want on their wedding and this is a great way for it to happen.
Cakes are so expensive that it has spawned many new trends in the wedding cake world, the most popular being the cupcake wedding cake. Rather than having a large cake, the couple has a spread of various delicious cupcakes. I’ve been to two wedding that featured this and let me say, I’m a fan of finding a massive amount of red velvet cupcakes at a wedding after I’ve drunk myself silly. However, this trend is become overdone that if we do not win the lotto and cannot afford an amazeballs cake for Gaelic Gala, I would prefer that we actually don’t go this route. Why? Because there are much better route to go that will no doubt start a trend of there own.
Instead of a cake or cupcakes, we could have…
- Pillsbury cookies – the seasonal ones: Everyone can pick their favorite cookie, whether it be the one with the snowman, the pumpkin, the turkey, the shamrock, theheart, the American flag, the Christmas tree, or the Easter egg. Nothing says wedding like a sugar cookie with a turkey on it.
- Twinkies: We’ll just unwrap 250 Twinkies and create a castle out of them. People can come take one and whoever makes the castle fall wins. It’s wedding Jenga.
- Decorate your own cookie: Nothing is more fun than drunk-decorating cookies to see who can come up with the most obscene decoration.
- Rice Krispee treats: Because we’re all four years old at heart.
- Jell-O Shots: Desserts PLUS your next drink.
If we do win the lotto though and Gaelic Gala can go on as planned, we’re going balls to the wall with this cake. Do not underestimate my ability to come up with the most random, Ireland themed cake. What kind of Irish wedding would this be if the cake wasn’t representative of that. Here are some options for you to peruse.
- A Guinness flavored cake: Because Guinness alone just isn’t already like drinking a whole meal. The cake will be Guinness flavored as well.
- A cake shaped like Ireland: The green frosting would turn everyone’s tongue green
- A cake shaped like Michael Flatley: He’ll be the one that rolls the cake out, while he Riverdance’s at the same time.
- Leprechaun/Pot of Gold cake: Every wedding needs a leprechaun.
Ok, so maybe that’s a little too over the top. I do always like “simple.” At the end of the day, we’ll probably go with something classic, but you have to admit, Michael Flatley rolling out a cake shaped like him is a great mental image. I’ll leave you with that little gem.
