C+E | The Cake

The Houstonian makes things pretty easy on a bride and groom. The wedding cake is included in the price of the meal, and there’s one person you meet with to choose your cake. Susie, of Susie’s Cakes.

In case you’re like me and wonder how one gets the job of providing all of the wedding cakes for The Houstonian, I will tell you. She made the wedding cake for the daughter of the owner of The Houstonian, 17 years ago, and she’s been making them ever since! What a cake job (pardon the pun!).

She set up a nice little tasting for us, and E was a happy guy. We’re not doing a groom’s cake, so he got to choose the wedding cake flavor {it’s a surprise}, and Susie’s adding a little gluten-free cake on the top so I can have some when we cut the cake! Super easy and fun.

Now originally, I wanted a simple cake like the one above, with flowers cascading down it. Guess how much it costs to add cascading flowers on a wedding cake?? I was quoted $175! I almost had a heart attack. So now I’m looking for a creative cake topper. At least we’ll get to keep it! Any suggestions?
