As a Canadian blogger, I like to point out great Web sites from my country. This morning I discovered Brides in the City, a fascinating blog published by two Torontians. I lived in TO for five years a decade ago. Gal pals Diana and Holly both works on the bridal industry.
Diana Stepanovic is the owner and pastry chef of Pavillon Cakes. Diana makes traditional, contemporary and super chic cakes. Holly Hatam operates an invitation and greeting card company called TearDrop Weddings. So if you are getting married soon and live near Toronto, their blog provides good sourcing information.
Recently, these gals started doing something out of the ordinary for weddings. They use the same design for the cake and the invite. Great idea! As an event designer, I usually try not repeating the same exact pattern too many times. I approve of this application because it is a nice way to link together your design elements. Invitations should introduce the key design elements of your event. It fits the bill here.
I like the color combination on the cake I am showing you. This cake and invite combination is for brides and grooms that are looking for a modern take on a traditional pattern. It is fun to see other colors than pastels for weddings. You can play around all these ideas the next time you organize a birthday or an anniversary party.

Great idea to have your wedding cake match the invites ! I wish there was a pastry deigner creating them here in Montreal as well.

Marie: I continue my quest to find one extraordinary cake maker in Montreal. I will tell the world if I ever find one.

Have your cake and eat it kind of a dillema. What should today’s grooms do? Have a expensivewedding or save for a house? I would take the second without a doubt
