My mom had the bright idea to use smaller (10-person) cakes as centerpieces rather than have one big wedding cake. I like this idea! The flowers in this photo are not the right color and the cakes will probably not be white, but the cakes I imagine would look something like this:

What I like most about this plan is that we can have a few different flavors, so everyone with different dietary needs will be happy. The folks on my mom's side who have gluten allergies can get a gluten-free cake (flourless chocolate, maybe?) and we can also have a vegan cake to satisfy the vegans and the folks on F's side who don't eat eggs. And then we can have a third kind of cake that's just cake.

I have also found out that it's easy to come up with DIY cake stands. That bumps this idea out of the "maybe" column and into the "hell yes we're doing it" column.

We started talking with our contact at the venue about setting up a tasting in February. The ideas we've got for the wedding menu sound absolutely delicious, the decorations will be beautiful, and everyone will be very happy.

This is a great idea! I just went to a friend's wedding where they did this and it was perfect, including the DIY cake stands.

I've been thinking of you. I just sent a Christmas letter to Feanil for both of you Make sure he shows it to you!

My step-sister did this for her wedding and it worked out really well. Basically every table had its own cake with its own flavor & design. It was really fun going from table to table to try out the different cakes, and helped get conversations going among the different sides of the family.

I love this idea. Please definitely blog about this, if you do it, and let us know how it turned out!
