Sugar Rush

My sister is going to call me boring when she sees this, but there is something about a traditional white wedding cake that I adore.

I know, cake designers and bakers are capable of doing practically anything these days, but I really like the idea of a traditional and elegant cake. Also, I'm not big on fondant, and prefer something with a smooth buttercream finish rather than a fondant shell. Here are some cute ones I saved from Martha Stewart Weddings (except for the last one, which is from Sweet Sweets).

I've loved the idea of mini-cakes since I first heard about it 10 years ago while preparing for my sisters wedding.

I love how these tiers look like hats/hat boxes. This is pretty specific to that candy buffet theme though, and doesn't seem like it would work at just any wedding.

Love layers. In my opinion, they're more interesting and grand then one stand alone cake.

Not really crazy about this Damask cake, but figured I should put at least one colorful example on here.

Small Screen Weddings

Some shots of my favorite after-school tv wedding specials:

Aunt Becky & Uncle Jesse...killer puffy sleeves and veil

Homer & Marge

Zack & Kelly's Vegas wedding....

...which was convenient for Jessi, who was working down the street at the Cheetah

Donna & David's wedding. Donna's dress emphasizes her botched boob job a little too much, and I'll never understand why Dylan was chosen as best man over Steve, but this was a classic way to say goodbye to the series.

Chandler & Monica, Friends; probably my all-time favorite wedding episode.

Charlotte & Harry, Sex & the City

Grace & Leo..Will & Grace was starting to suck at this point, but their little rendition of Human League on the roof of the hotel was cute, and Grace looked really pretty

Just a great still from a classic episode of Friends
