Communist because I suggested something other than white cake? WTF? White weddings weren't even popular for most of American history.

Oooooooooooooooooooooo......dropping the F bomb on me.  :o  Dude, I'm just playing with you.  You can have any color cake you want, Archie.  :awww:  Just don't expect me to show up for your wedding.  And, uh, when's the date by the way?

I think having black lips after eating black wedding cake would be quite funny. I'd go just to see that. Maybe not.

I don't like cake much at all.

Some comedy, to distract from the accusations of communism above:

Yes, our groom's cake was fruitcake. It looked pretty, but tasted vile. Like a lab experiment that had been pickling forever. Fortunately my cake (my lovely three-tier yellow cake with white buttercream icing and little holly berries and leaves made of marzipan) tasted the way wedding cake should.

It's almost enough to make me want to get married.  Almost.  :sneaky:

So in your case,  the swirled frosting of cakes are are the hellish cords which bind the hearts of men.

I'm not getting married ever again, but if I do the cake is going to be in the shape of a pirate ship.

Now that would be cool.  We could do pirate talk during the whole reception.  "Har, har!  Avast ye scalawags, raise the mizzen mast, curse yer lungs and liver."

But it would probably be inappropriate to tell the bride, "Heave to and prepare to be boarded."  Yes, highly inappropriate.  :sneaky:

I don't really like cake.

There are a few exceptions (carrot cake, German chocolate cake, and yogurt-spice cake), but that is all.  Cake is just all right.  It's edible; it's fine.  It's just nothing special.

I have made cakes for years.  Marble-swirl, chocolate, yellow, double-chocolate snack cake, the better-than-most-but-still-just-a-cake red velvet cake, white cake, etc. But they're nothing I really want.

It's just that, whenever I get ready to bake something (which is several times a week), cake is not really on the radar.  Carrot cake is what I make for my husband's birthday, and for me, German chocolate cake entails making from-scratch caramel coconut icing--meaning I make the caramel from scratch, too.  ::)  It's a pain.  I sometimes make yogurt-spice cake, which is more a snack-cake.  It is not iced, and it is not that sweet.  It goes well with coffee.

I bake cookies, bars, and pies.  I make cheesecake.  I make fudge (rocky road fudge, actually).  I just . . . try to avoid making cakes anymore.

Is this normal?  Is there help for me?   ;) Or should I simply give up on cake and accept that the memories I have of cakes in childhood (which I made myself then, too) are rose-colored?

What another anti-red velvet women?  >:(

Red Velvet is the insignia of clan Mac_Giolla_Bhrighde and what does elder and dearest brothers go do? They both marry anti-red velvet cake women! So now everytime red velvet (with butter icing of course (two sticks, no less))is brought out, I have to listen to "Oh not Red Velvet again!". AAAAAAAAAAAAA!. And on top of that dearest brother's wife made another error today when she brought a couple of cans of ranch flavored beans that wasn't Ranch Style Beans, I mean when she announced this you could hear a pin drop.  She was "What? what the problem, they are just like Ranch Style!". So I put a compassionate hand on her shoulder and said "Sis, its one of those Red Velvet cake things." She was like "OH! I'm sorry.".  :laughing: But she insisted on us eating them! I'm you know what type of chaos this bring to the Mac_Giolla_Bhrighde clan? Next you know we will be robbing liquor stores and selling Crack and running over school kids with your car (hat tip to Weird Al). Oh also my Lord Father the Old Bear wants to know what do you eat for breakfast since you don't like cake? ;D

My mother made our wedding cake.  Black forest with buttercream frosting.  She let the cherries soak all night in the port so when we cut the cake the room smelled of alcohol.  Everyone went back for seconds.  ;D
