Our cake was a simple 3 tier cake. When I was looking at cakes the only thing I knew was that I didn't want and fondant, and I liked ribbon on it. I actually had really wanted a fun cake topper but I never found anything that I was in love with when I was looking. The day before the wedding the girls at the cake shop called me and asked if I found a topper. I hadn't so they said, don't worry about it, we will use flowers.
The cake was displayed in a metal gazebo that was hand made by my father-in-laws best friend. He also made several of the plant stands that held potted plants around the reception. (For each of his daughters weddings he had made different items and I just got to use them all!) He also drove us in his 1950ish Cadillac limo that day.
The most important part to me was the taste. The bottom layer was a white cake with chocolate cream center (the mister's choice). The middle layer was red velvet with cream cheese (my choice) and the top was white with a Marion berry filling. The farm has a crop of Marion berries so it was in honor of that. That, and the Marion berry is the most superior of all the berries.

and they worried about the cake melting.

We didn't save the top layer for a couple reasons: 1) The Mister doesn't really like cake 2) The Mister (and I) are weirded out by year-old cake and 3) We wouldn't have had enough cake for our guests if we had saved the top layer.
Did you eat year old wedding cake? How did it turn out?
