Well, we're at a stump right now. I watned a cake, but I think we are going with cupcakes! I love...
We hate cake. We don't eat it for birthdays/weddings/etc. We also don't really like pie. Well, I like it enough, but Craig doesn't. So! We've decided to go with Apple Squares + ice cream. Using my Grandma's recipe of course ;).
That, and we decided to use Apples as our theme tie-in. (Apple Slice color from Dessy, Carmel Apple favors, apple ish invites--DIY of course--and anything where flowers would go, we're putting apples). Because I was literally freaking out over the flowers + bee combination. I had nightmares about it.
So, though I know it bummed people out about no cake... why serve it/spend so much more money on it when we're not going to enjoy it. Plus, Apple Squares are sooo easy to make! My mom can make 3 batches in just a couple hours and be done with it. It would cost maybe............$75? or less. Probably much less since all we would need to buy are the apples.
And $75 vs $800+...... really? Who really needs cake when there's an alternative that helps your theme and tastes tremendously better?! Not I!
