Wedding Cake

For my wedding, I'd like to make everything looks good and most importantly, AFFORDABLE! My dresses are cheap, my decos are handmade (I made roses out of paper napkins) and I plan to make my own wedding card (hopefully...). It's time consuming but I've started bit by bit from now. Just wish me luck!

For the wedding cakes...I don't think it's compulsory for our culture to have them. But it's a trend, untuk Malay wedding pun harus ada kek 8 tingkat! But I never like those multi-tiered wedding cakes. Most of them are pretty on the outside but taste yucky in the inside.These happened on most occasions where I've attended the weddings. Frankly, I don't really like wedding cakes. They are a expensive, and I don't intend to spend RM400 on a cake.

So I came up with an idea. I can bake, not that good but people like my cakes. What the heck, I could use my baking skills and bake my very own wedding cake. I read somwhere in a blog where this woman baked 39 pieces cakes and she stacked them up, and she came up with 5 regular size cakes for his brother's wedding. Wooshhhh!

Instead of one-tiered or multi-tiered wedding cake, I came up with an idea of making 3-5 small/regular wedding cakes, in different flavors. So my guest have various cakes to bring home, not just the same one. I'm not that rajin as well, so I might just came up with 3 types of cakes only. They are moist chocolate cake, orange cake and Johan's favorite, cheesecake. My budget for these cakes is RM100 max! Hope they won't exceed my limit.

This is a sample of what my wedding cakes will look like. I mean, the assemble. Different types of cakes, different flavors, different colors. I hope our guests will be delighted.

As for the cakestand, I need to head down to SSF after reading WLT's suggestion. I have a cakestand from Ikano already. But in order to implement my dream of wedding cakes, I need to buy at least 2 more cakestand. Boleh mintak sponsor my dad kut?

Do you think I'll succeed? I mean, making the cakes. Not mintak sponsor my dad. Hukkk!

hello! came across ur blog while bloghopping :)
i've seen many brides trying to DIY but i wonder when exactly do u want to bake the cake? i mean 1 week before the wedding is the most hectic time and the bride should get a good rest in order to look good on camera on her wedding day. DIY can save money but what if something comes up and u couldn't bake? my suggestion is for u to find someone in the family that can bake and u can do the finishing / decorating part.just my 2 cents...
wish u all the best! :)
