Hey there people!

So this past August long weekend me and my FH went out to Canada's National Ukrainian Festival (Dauphin MB) and had a heck of a time!

While there it was decided that instead of us cutting into a traditional wedding cake - we will cut into Korovai instead!

We went with a Ukrainian braided bread for our cake - but what style is your cakes?

Simple white or an ombre?

Pie?

Are you going for a floral look?

What is the style choice for your "cake"? If you haven't decided just yet - do you have any inspo pics?

    I really loved the initials carved in the side of a tree I thought it was so precious. As long as it tastes good my guy doesn't really mind.

    My gosh I love it! Especially the birch wood - so many memories of climbing birch trees growing up!

    We are doing a birch tree cake, topsy turvy, we with only 3 tiers (chocolate orange with ganache, spiced squash with cream cheese icing, and lemon with fresh raspberries with cream cheese icing) instead of the flowers pictured we will be having sugar succulents. And the carving of our initials will be on the top tier instead.

    There is a you tube video that shows you how to do it. Lightly brush the cake with vodka then you put the glitter on a dry brush and tap above the cake. You keep adding the glitter til cake is as sparkly as you'd like. I think I'm going to experiment with glitter and buttercream. I'd love for my cupcakes to sparkle too

    I'm having a small cake 6"-8" on a stand with cupcakes around it. I want the sparkle colour (to look like snow for winter wedding) for small cake with a red ribbon around it and the broach on the ribbon. The cupcakes will be wrapped in the fancy paper....

    I was really happy with it. It's exactly what we wanted, and it tasted great.

    This was our cake. It was a simple vanilla sponge with strawberry and chocolate hazelnut filling. The outside was a light cream with berries.

    That seems to be more and more common - even I'm doing the desserts separate from the "cake" we are having!

    LOVE the gold drip look! Is gold your accent colour?

    I have a plated dessert as part of my menu so we won't be serving the wedding cake to all guests (it will be on the sweet table for whoever wants it). Because of this I am able to get a smaller cake to serve less guests. Here's the cake I will be asking for.

    Our single tier will be white and the cupcakes at the top will be white. It will ombre out to a the full out teal/purple colours at the base of the tail.

    Now that's extravagant! Will you be doing the colours like that or more towards the full out colours of a peacock that are blue and purple like the rest of your wedding? - Kind of like how the white of the cupcakes are the same white as the single tier but will your single tier be white?

    That Korovai looks amazing - and it ties in a Ukrainian tradition for you guys!

    As many know, we're doing a small, single-tiered cake for cutting, and then having cupcakes for everyone. The cupcakes will look like a peacock tail:

    As in all together? No pie? Nothing?

    Will you be having any dessert or late night bars? (my friend from work went to a wedding last weekend where they had a nacho bar!)

    That will be so beautiful and unique! I love it!
    We are going with a simple chocolate cake with vanilla icing (FH picked the cake and I get to pick the style!) Doing a semi naked look with some drip similar to this one. Then she is going to do some burgundy and navy flowers on the top and bottom

    Oh I love it! - personally not a big fan of the "naked cake", but with the drip on the top of this I've gotta say, I'm liking it more than I thought I would!

    For our wedding at the resort we are keeping it simple with a vanilla white buttercream cake and a few white orchids.

    For our legal ceremony in Canada, I've decided to get a nicer cake as my "splurge" to celebrate the day. I'm aiming for something like this!
