Back to Cake....

So, after listening to all of your opinions...(thank you by the way!!) I thought I was settled...until I came across this cake! Am I crazy or is this a perfect cake for our setting? Soon as I saw it I thought of a tree...the way the icing is put on...it reminds me of bark on a tree. Our cake will only be 4 tiers.

Then, I pictured these two adorable cuties standing around the cake..or making sure the tiers are deep enough for one of the birds stand so it can look down at the other.....


I found these on Etsy from seller Middleburg Shop. I mean, they would fit right in with the other blue birds on the invites...etc.. Oh my! What do you think? A family member does not prefer this cake...and my friends say they do..or they just being nice :) My wedding coordinator just told me loved it... so votes are looking good...

Thoughts?? I guess I like how the cake reminds me of the bark on a tree... OR should I stick with a smooth...simple one!? The other question is...should I splurge and get these cuties?

I like the last idea but honestly, I loooove this. So original! And with the design + birds would be just adorable.

Throw other people's opinions to the wind and go with what you like -- in the end that's what you'll be happy with!

Amanda sold me :) i just purchased those birdies! I figure if i don't use them with the cake..i will for sure use them elsewhere! If they were cheaper i'd buy more!
