I don't really understand the appeal of karma farming on Reddit but this is just the sort of thing that keeps me asking "Why do I not believe that is an actual wedding cake?"

Why did I bother with that mess?

CSB: One wedding I went to, the cake comes out and there's an audible gasp. It was bright, emerald GREEN, with SHAMROCKS, a couple of leprechauns, and maybe 2 layers-it seemed kind've squished on the bottom. Perhaps 50 servings-if sliced razor thin. Not enough for the 110 guests. This was on a St. Pat's day weekend. Of course, this was the wrong cake-it was supposed to be lemon pound cake, white fondant and serve everyone. Catering people did not care. They had their hands full the entire time dealing with some very drunk and coked out guests. One of the more interesting weddings I've been to.

And just yesterday I read a story of how a reception ended with 59 positive cases and (so far) one dead body


So that was probably very intentional

Wedding cake is usually mediocre at best.  It's not made for flavor, it's made for looks, to be photographed and that's it.  Then you might as well eat it, but it's just supposed to look "regal" and "festive".   You can have good cake and all that, but it probably won't turn out with the same look, and it'll probably cost more than you really want to spend.

I will say that it depends on who you get to make the cake. Mrs Thosw and I were recommended a small bakery just around the corner from the hotel we were getting married in. They don't just specialize in wedding cakes, but treat them as special orders. It was one of the tastiest cakes I've ever had.

I'd say that the issue is with bridezillas wanting huge cakes and paying through the nose to get them lavishly decorated, instead of concentrating on what it's going to taste like.

Yeah.

My ex and I went to a guy that did amazing cakes.  Used jam between layers, the cake itself had flavor, the frosting was eminently edible.

35 years later, and I have no idea what our cake looked or tasted like.
It had a pretty handblown glass topper, and that's all I recall.

/the topper has been sealed in a box since the wedding. Shaking the box produces a lot of tinkling. Best just to leave it sealed.
//Schrödinger's cake topper! It's both broken and pristine!

I have a slice of wedding cake in my drawer from years ago. (Apparently it gives you good luck in marriage.. )  and it's still perfect. Rock hard, but perfect.
Show case cakes like that often have a very basic cake baked in batch, and then all the shiat that goes on it is what makes it special.

I can't believe in that whole article there was only one photo.

A cake smaller than Kirk Cameron's birthday cake is supposed to be a wedding cake?

There's a cake fail, and there's a wedding cake that reads "Why's there a wedding?"

Once again, my version of a FARK 2020 Yearbook cover has been validated.
