Speaking of wedding cake, our dream wedding cake are not like most people imagine. We want a real cake…like literally real. The first time I saw Andien and Ippe’s wedding pictures, I swoon over a 3 tiers chocolate naked cake.
After that, buni attended his cousin’s wedding at Singapore and they held an intimate party with this kind of cake….a naked cake! His family was also comment nicely about that kind of cake, not that “naked” means something negative, it just a simple word describe the simple without too much buttercream or even fondant cake (we dislike fondant).
With these kind of references (thank you so dear pinterest) we start to looking a vendor that can make our wish come true within our oh so tight budget. We thought, “oh, because it is a small cake, it won’t be that expensive. great!”
But then again, “expectation with reality” are the same as in meme of instagrammers. 180′! we asked three vendors, barley cake (gorgeous bridal partner for cake), RR cake, and my cousin’s BF (he is a home made pastry chef). All of them said minimum for a real 3 tiers naked cake start from 3.5 million – 6 million IDR. *glekh*
We have no idea how much it will cost and no wonder many couples give up and choose a simple styrofoam cake for their wedding. I am not against dummy cakes, don’t get me wrong. But for us, we couldn’t afford a grand theme wedding cake. If it is a plain simple 7 tiers dummy cake, how weird and useless would be, to think we have to hold our smile long enough to make our jaw cramps and pretend happily cut the cake with a shining ‘samurai’ sword.
Moreover, (we think) none of the guest will pay the attention. Except our parents, close family, WO and of course, the photographers/ videographer.
So, Where is our wedding cake? the answer is none. What? yes world. we decided NOT to use a wedding cake at our wedding. This is, *maybe* we are gonna get an award or written our name in the world book of record “the first couple that didn’t have a cake on their wedding.”
Already discussed with our parents and they said it’s ok. how awesome is that? they had the same point of view and they are not a cake lover from the first place.
Hehe, it must be a weird and confusing for most of my friends or even you guys, to accept the idea. But we assure you, we are so glad to keep our wedding as sincere as can be.
Happy brunch time,
