Wedding Cake Link-Up!

Today I am linking up with the lovely Britt from The Magnolia Pair for her
Wedding Cake Link-Up Party!!!

I am really excited for this link-up party because I am a NEWLYWED
and I loved my flippin wedding cake and now I get to share it with the world. 

The idea for my cake actually came from a bridal fair I attended.  I thought I had an inspiration picture but I cannot find it right now. 

My wedding colors were black and light pink so I decided that I wanted the little sugar pearls to be light pink inside each flower. 

My fabulous baker was Kathy Scott of Sweet Expressions in Abbeville, SC.  She is actually a famous cake designer and has been featured in multiple cake decorating competition on the Food Network.

I also chose to have different cake flavors for each layer.  My first layer was almond, then chocolate, then strawberry, then almond again all with butter cream icing.  I liked that the guest had a variety of yummy choices.

I also decided against a cake topper (GASP!!!)  It is very southern to have a cake topper and no one understood why I didn't want one, but I thought it turned out perfect with out one.
  












The flowers were made of fondant and very difficult to
cut through...see the Hubs expression. 
Makes me laugh!






This was one of my favorite pictures!  Taylin, my awesome step-daughter was chillin next to the cake tasting all of the different flavors.

Hope you enjoyed one part of our special day!
