Our Cake

We bought our cake from Van’s Bakery on Brookhurst and Hazard.  Before Van’s we had checked out Final Touch and Givalry Bakery. The cakes were beautiful but we thought Van’s was a better deal and I really like their cakes! Delicious.  We got two tiers of strawberry and two tiers of coconut. All I had that night was the coconut, it was so good! I heard from people who had strawberry that it was good too.

We were contemplating getting those old school cakes from the 80’s that had bridges and fountains and fake people on it because we thought it was be hilarious! But..unfortunately, we didn’t end up getting one. Haha..but that would be really funny. Check out the picture below to see what I’m talking about!

We joked about getting a cake like this!! Sorry for the bad photo..I tried to take a good shot, but it was hard with my camera phone..but isn't that the mother of all 80's cakes?!!! Look! The bridges even form a heart! awww

Okay, so here’s our actual cake. Ta Da!

We wanted something classic, so I asked him to do the diagonal lines w/ the dots. I thought it looked cute!

We didn’t end up using the Mickey and Minnie cake topper because I looked every where for those particular figurines and they were sold out every where!!! There’s no rule that says you have to have a caketopper, so we just decided to put flowers on top. Voila!

We got the flowers for the cake from OK Flowers. I wanted Cafe Au Lait Dahlias and ivory roses for the cake, and they did get me dahlias, but not Cafe Au Lait Dahlias! I was fine with it though..I don’t think anybody would really notice. I got my cafe au lait dahlias in my bouquet and everything else so I was fine with it. Whatevs!

For my shower gift, my sister got us this Lenox Jubilee Pearl Cake Knife set. It has small pearls in the clear handles. So glamorous! I love pearls.

The matching champagne flutes also had pearls inside the stems. So cute.


At the end of the night I was actually eating cake w/ my hands!! Couldn’t find any forks around anywhere at the Nom nom nom.

Oh yeah! And remember a while back I posted about choosing music for the reception and I posted “This Magic Moment” by Ben E. King and The Drifters? Well..that was what we chose for our cake cutting song! I’m sure nobody noticed but us..but they played it while we cut our cake and I must say, that it was indeed a very magical moment. 😉
