    a little bit of help is required ladies, my wedding cake is being made for me as a wedding present by my fab aunty, she is amazing at making cakes so that is not the problem here. The problem is hubby doesn't know what kind of cake he would like, as in style and decoration. I suggested fairycake tower with a normal cake to cut on top but its just not him (what ever that means) coming from a guy that wants kiddies games as the evening table centre pieces and a tuck shop and cheese burgers for our evening buffet.

    i have suggested something laid back but he want it to be more formal and traditional without it look formal or overly traditional, no flowers or cheesy models of us (his words not mine)[​IMG]

    so before i beg hubby to go back to not paying any interest in the wedding plans help me please

    xx

    Be careful what you wish for, asking them to take an interest lol!!

    What about something like this?

    I've always quite liked the ones with a ribbon around tied in a bow and/or with a brooch to fasten it, a mote modern take but not too much of a departure from being definitely a wedding cake x

    How about having a fairly classic cake, but then get some funny cake toppers?

    What does he think makes them girly? Then I'll try and think of cakes without those bits that make them girly on :D

    the picture one is 'just not him' and the other one has flower and is therefore girly,
    i will strangle him very very soon.

    he likes the game one but there is no way i am having that.

    he thinks it should be more traditional than the parcel one

    i am giving up i will just tell my aunt to do what she feels like and add purple stuff to it, i know have to try and get my daughter to back to sleep because my blooming neighbours are drilling and hammering when they know she was sleeping!!!

    Lol men are so funny. Maybe you should get him to decorate it, get him some purple icing and see what he comes up with! :D

    I'm lucky, my oh has no real interest in chosing things, I asked him about the cake and he said as long as there is chocolate in it he isn't really bothered :D

    Tell him to find one he likes if he is being so fussy!!!! The cake should be a mixture of both your likes and dislikes. I am getting cross for you ha ha!!! I am also sure on the day he will think it's fab whatever. Good luck Hun . The other thing I haven't learnt with my hub is that if I get him to choose then he wont bother getting round to it and I will have to anyway, it might work in your favour!
    I love that wonky one posted earlier
