I'm addicted to cupcakes. So naturally, I first wanted a cupcake wedding cake. All of the vendors I looked into were at least thirty minutes away, and really worried about a possible icing catastrophe in the Kansas heat, so I decided that a regular cake might be the best option.
Once I became open to having a traditional cake, I wanted something along the lines of dessert design queen Amy Atlas. I swooned over this dessert bar with the oversized balloons.
Here are some of the traditional cakes I loved:
Helen Benefiel of Helen's Cakes came highly recommended to us by many Lawrence locals for her beautiful wedding cakes. Her cakes were both lovely and delicious, I was most impressed how Helen took the time to sketch us a custom wedding cake during our tasting. She really listened to our ideas and made us the perfect buttercream cake.
