Corpse Bride Wedding Cake by Acid-PopTart Corpse Bride Wedding Cake by Acid-PopTart
I'm toying with the idea of posting a couple of my wedding photos? Why? Because it was that damn cool! :lol: Actually, now that the magazine has been released with our wedding photos (gothicbeauty.com), I'm just posting more stuff. I'm also in the wedding vein because I'm debating about putting together a book of truly alternative weddings.

So here is a little tease of my affair - something we did our best to appear lavish and quite fun while maintaining a budget that didn't put us in the poorhouse. We did quite well. This wedding was thousands less than the "typical".

This is our cake... which I designed and I'd say the cake decorator was 95% true to my sketches. Considering our wedding pretty much went off without a hitch, the only problem really for me was the colour of my wedding cake. It's suppose to be my favourite colour - PopTart green - or lime, close to the napkins you see in the background. Not this weird faded yellow colour. The decorator matched the napkin I brought her perfectly, so I'm a bit curious as to why on the big day it wasn't exact. But again, considering that was the only issue - I'll consider myself lucky!!!

It's no Ace of Cakes cake, that's for sure, but it doesn't carry the same price tag either! And it was a really delicious cake! Bottom layer is chocolate raspberry and the top two layers are lemon.

Cake toppers, since we couldn't find any we liked, we went with action figures. Yes, action figures. Well, tiny figures, that were found at the very last minute. The groom was in a set that was easily procured but the actual Corpse Bride (me) was a lot more difficult to find and we got her shipped to us, I kid you not - two days before the wedding. I was a little stressed. ;) Although I'm not blue and showing half my bones, the Corpse Bride is a good representation of myself and the groom, Victor, bears a striking resemblance to my husband, Damion. :love:

(Yes, I realize that fondant allows for amazing cake decorating - but I personally despise the taste and wanted the fondant kept to a minimum - such as the stripes - and stick with as much buttercream icing as possible.)

This is absolutely gorgeous! Would you mind if I used this pic as an inspiration for my own version? I'm a cake decorator and I have to do a cake for my boss tomorrow to show off my skills [job interview kind of thing] :D

The cake is lovely, but am I the only one who thinks it's odd that the Victoria action figure is there?

Because she was in love with Victor. :P

Seeing how many women would still in love with the man I married, it is sort of fitting then. ;) In the story the Corpse Bride was in love with Victor as well but for us, we were Burton fans, getting cake toppers I liked without breaking the bank (having them custom designed in other words), mini figures that were visually interesting was what I wanted. That and Victor and my husband look very similar. Although I'm not half skeletal and blue, I felt she was a fine representation of me. Seeing as it was my wedding which I insisted was done our way to make no one happy but my husband and myself, I'll stick whatever I want to on a cake.

I understand, and I think it's a lovely design. I was just a little confused. xD I think that was a bad day for the "Victorias" in your life! Congrats. <3

Thats better than my wedding when the cake never showed up at all! They should have given you some sort of money off for not getting the color right, or at least have checked up on you. A lime green fondant or even lime green frosting would have been fine, even if you still wanted all the other things on there. I'm kinda glad you went with actin figures too, cuz making those figures out of molding chocolate would have been fun, but a pain! Dx lol

True.... I probably should have followed up better too, but you know how it is after a wedding. That's awful yours didn't show, luckily this was really the only thing that went wrong, so I'm thankful!!!
