I am a long-time PW bride turned Community Coordinator. I <3 PW!

Cake Inspirations

At first I wanted to do a 2 tier cake and a bunch of cupcakes.  Now I think we'll probably stick with the 2 tier, traditional looking cake, but have it on a dessert table with a variety of homestyle cakes/pies/cheesecakes instead.  This is the basic idea I'm going for, just with more of it:

I posted a bunch of cake inspirations below, but now I think I'm going to go with a really simple white 2-tier cake and I DIY'd a cake topper out of clay. (I still plan to add a veil to the bride birdie's head.)  Here it is:
