I personally took on the challenge of making my own wedding cakes. And I absolutely loved it. “Yep, that’s me in the photo.” I have always enjoyed baking, and I wanted to create a unique and personal touch for our wedding. I started practicing months in advance, experimenting with different flavors and designs until I found the perfect recipes. Yes, I made two cakes. Brides cake, and Grooms cake.

On the day of the wedding, I was nervous but excited to see my cakes come to life. As I assembled each layer and added the finishing touches, I felt a sense of pride and accomplishment that I had created something beautiful and delicious for our special day. When our guests tried the cakes, they were impressed and surprised that I had made them myself.
