I am not a big wedding cake person (or actually a cake person, at that!– give me savory over sweet any day!) If you are going the cake route though, a homemade wedding cake can be completely charming and it is really easy! I decorated this one with rosemary, lady's mantle and feverfew.

I love this cake you decorated, so pretty and simply elegant with the rosemary and lady’s mantel and feverfew!
Adorable!! Why people would ever have a fondant cake is beyond me. This is 8 million times better.
Yum!! I most definitely am a sweet person. And a savory person. Oh no, I’m a pig!
This looks absolutely delicious, Chelsea! I’m filing the post away for any future bride I come across! 🙂
What a darling and sweet cake. It reminds me of country mouse getting married! The daisy crown is so lovely. x Emily
oooh, love this! and i’m right there with you with the savory preference. keep your cupcakes, i’ll take some cheese, please.
i think when i get married i’m going to do wedding cupcakes. but this is beautiful 🙂
I AM a cake person and the best part of the reception for me is the cake. Can’t say I’ve had a phenomenal wedding cake in years. AND I adore Lady’s Mantle.
Wow, absolutely gorgeous! I love homemade wedding cakes. Two friends of ours who have gotten married had homemade wedding cakes and they were SO delicious and SO beautiful. 🙂
So, so lovely.
It’s tres charmant!
(hehe just practicing my french!)
There is a trick I learned a few years ago to keep the mess down when frosting cakes. Place strips of parchment or wax paper, or foil, under the edges of the cake so that it covers the cake plate. When you are done frosting, just remove the strips and the plate is already clean.
I am all for homemade wedding cakes. My husband made our cake and it was fantastic and actually easier than he expected. He spent the morning of our wedding with a friend completing the frosting and decided to add a peony to top it all off. I couldn’t have been more pleased.
I caught sight of this cake and immediately thought of your Mom. Tell her it looks amazing.
I’m such a sucker for country style. I LOVE this cake!!
oh wow, this looks SO lovely and delicious!
This is the most perfect cake I’ve ever seen. I never understood the whole extravagant wedding cake Hooptala. If you don’t mind, when I get married this will be my cake! 🙂
That is the cutest cake ever!
Thank you so much for all your comments, everyone!
I like your cake stand! Where did you get it?
Thanks, It’s from Crate and Barrell from a few years back.
