DIY Wooden Wedding Cake Toppers

I had to blog about these because they are so freakin' cute! My friend Archna just made wedding cake toppers for a friend of hers. She got these plain wooden dolls which comes in a pack of one girl and one boy doll and paints. You can also pick up different colored paints at your local craft store such as Michael's or Joann's.

((you can find them on etsy at goosegreaseundone's shop))

How darling are they?? What a great way to get creative with your wedding cake and put some personality into it-- I love!

"I do!"

Chandra + Tony's Wedding Cake!

I had the pleasure and honor of creating Chandra + Tony's wedding cake which took place yesterday evening. It was a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and I hope they had a wonderful time!

Chandra is an extremely talented florist (check out her creations at Chandra Abel Designs) and we met on the TOMS South Africa Shoe Drop almost 4 years ago! Her and her new husband are absolutely one of the most beautiful and nicest couples I have ever met.

The cake was a 3 tiered lemon cake with lemon curd and cream cheese filling. The groom is not a fan of fondant so it is finished off with buttercream frosting and adorned with gumpaste peonies and garden roses. This was one of the heaviest cakes I have ever made-- thank you to Vikki and Eddie for helping to carry this monster through the house, down a flight of stairs, and through a crowd of people to get to the dessert area!

It was wonderful working with All You Need Is Love Event Planning-- Vikki, Shannon, and Molly are awesome and made the delivery easy and the wedding looked amazing! I am also obsessed with their blog-- so many cute ideas (not that I am getting married anytime soon lol).

Congraulations Chandra + Tony! Wishing them many many years of happiness and love!
