He harmonizes to Hocking on the tune, singing,”They say nothing lasts forever / But they ain’t seen us together / Or the way the moonlight dances in your eyes / Just a T-shirt in the kitchen / With no makeup and a million / Other things that I could look at my whole life / A love like that makes a man have second thoughts / Maybe some things last forever after all.”

Below Deck Med’s Tiffany Copeland’s Wedding Cake: Photos

When Tiffany Copeland got married at a North Carolina ranch this fall, the decor was all abloom. While tying the knot with her beau, Evan Jones, the Below Deck Mediterranean alum wore a ruffled gown and carried a garden-style bouquet down the aisle. The couple’s altar was made of birch logs strung up with roses and leaves, and even the cake was studded with blossoms. 

Sharing more details from her October 10 wedding on Instagram Stories, the former marine biologist posted tempting photos of her dessert buffet. The couple’s cake, from Crystal Coast Desserts, was served on a natural wood slice. It was covered in thick, textured white frosting, and topped with a delicate sprig of baby’s breath, a deep purple dahlia, and a white rose. (These matched the flowers in Tiffany’s bridal bouquet.) 

There was more sweetness where that came from. The buffet also held pretty cupcakes in flavors such as German Chocolate and Champagne Raspberry.

Bake Boss Jandakot couple celebrate with WA’s biggest wedding cake

TWO professional cake makers have gone all out for their own nuptials and created what may be WA’s biggest ever wedding cake.

Bake Boss Jandakot’s Joe and Casey Locke wowed family and friends at the reception with an over-the-top skyscraper of a wedding cake when they married last month.

The happy couple are known for their over-the-top, outrageous and creative designs, although what they served up for their wedding has taken the cake.

Towering at 2.2m tall – or 3.1m if you include the table it sat upon – and with a diameter of 1.5m, the cake was comprised of 13 tiers.

The (metaphorical) icing on the cake came in the form of two actual fish tanks, filled with Siamese fighting fish, which accounted for two of the 13 tiers.

The duo said they embraced the challenge of creating their own wedding cake and started designing it towards the tail-end of last year, ignoring advice they often offer to their customers.

“We tell people ‘you’re stupid if you make your own wedding cake’; we still stand by that,” Mr Locke said.

“We had time, we’ve got the space, but even this wasn’t enough space; we had to put it through the wall sideways to get it through the door.”

The fish tanks were added as an unusual twist to make their cake stand out even further, although Mr Locke admitted they ultimately proved were the toughest obstacle.

“The top one worked, but the bottom one kept failing and leaking. They were the things that almost broke us,” he said.

To further complicate matters, the pair went through two batches of fish after the first lot died at the pet store, and the second met their demise at the paws of their pet cat.

When it came to constructing the mega-cake for the big day, Mr Locke said they were fortunate their wedding venue was available the day before.

“It took us just under four hours to set up, and we had four men with drills, glue guns, ladders and an electrician,” he said.

“We set it up in lot of parts to make it easy, it was planned perfectly, but it still took us four hours.”

With the wedding cake out of the way, the couple can now return attention to their regular, larger-than-life sweet projects — which can incorporate motors, lights, pumps and even airbags and speakers.

Couples whose nuptials were put on hold by COVID-19 are turning to a fresh trend in the bridal industry: micro weddings.

How to Have the Most Successful Wedding Cake Tasting Ever

Kristina Lorraine Photography

Though the wedding cake tasting is undoubtably fun (and delicious), it’s also hard work. Not only are you selecting a flavor for your big-day dessert, but you’re also coming up with a design. To ensure that you and your baker are on the same page throughout this meeting, we spoke to an expert and asked her to share her top tips for cake tasting success. From who to invite to the importance of focusing on your own needs, keep the following expert-approved insight in mind.

Related: Questions to Ask Your Wedding Cake Baker

Start by meeting with bakers you know can deliver on what you need.

“Choose a baker who you can really get behind,” says Emily Lael Aumiller, pastry chef and founder of Lael Cakes. That means only considering bakers who will be able to give you what you need for the big day. For example, if you know you want a gluten-free dessert, look for someone who specializes in that. Or if an elaborately decorated, multi-tier cake is what you’re envisioning, make sure the bakers you’re considering have made plenty of those in the past.

Focus on what you like.

The baker might tell you their red velvet is their signature flavor and the one most couples choose, but don’t let that sway your decision. And don’t worry about what everyone else likes best, either. “When choosing cake flavors and designs, don’t worry about the needs of others and focus on your own,” Lael Aumiller advises. You’re not going to please everyone, so focus on getting what you want.

Trust the professional.

“When it comes to the design, let your baker do their thing,” Lael Aumiller explains. They will take cues from what your style is and create something completely unique for you. It’s also their job to make sure what you’re asking for is realistic, so it’s important to remember that there’s a reason why they might be saying no to your ideas.

Don’t bring your entire wedding party to the tasting.

The cake tasting is fun, and while it might be tempting to bring along your entire crew, too many opinions is never a good thing. “Limit the amount of guests you bring along to your tasting,” Lael Aumiller recommends. Being surrounded by too opinions may cloud your decision making, she explains, and this may take away from you getting what you really want.

Focus on the cake.

“If you bring your planner to the tasting, focus on the cake and the cake alone,” Lael Aumiller says. If you need to catch up on other event details, she advises planning a meeting nearby, but being respectful of your baker’s time by working only on the task at hand. The same is true if you’re with your fiancé, maid of honor, or mom: While it might be tempting to talk through the other details, remember that this time is all about dessert.
