    Does anybody know if theres a website, app or whatever to design your own wedding cake but using your own pictures on a computer?

    We picked a cake a long time ago, but I started to change my mind and found some other cakes I liked. I liked different aspects of few, then OH suggested taking bits from each cake to have our own design, but I dont know how I could do it as I can't draw!

    This is our original cake idea but only 3 tiers.

    I started looking around for cakes in our colour and I love bows so also a different search for those, and we liked these:

    Now we've come up with our perfect cake!

    Bottom tier - White with the proposal on the first cake
    2nd tier - turquoise with a bow across the middle (3rd cake image)
    Top tier - White with the wedding on the first cake

    Now we just need something to go off so that we can give it to OHs boss as shes making it for us!

    best thing to do is talk to whoever is doing your cake and take these pics with you, they know what their doing (if u get the right 1!!) and can sort it out no prob for you just by photos

    my cake idea is in my album i showed her all the pics (the bottom left is hers anyway) and she said not a problem and drew the idea up for us! ive just put them together on photo .. my cake will be all thr pics on thr bottom cake with glasses colour wise ivory peach and gold (tiny bit of gold)

    thats if u get a chance to look at my photo lol xx

    if she has anyway of saving the pics like facebook or her phone then also send them so she has something for reference. or print the pics. im sure she will get it its not a huge change just adding a splash of colour hah :-)

    It would probably be easier for her to look at those pictures and have the explanation anyway hun, as she will have the originals to look at. You've explained it pretty well :)

    She doesn't have fb but Ill probably just print them off and give them to OH to pass along at school. I'm sure he will explain properly as well. It was his idea after all :)

    Thanks Teresa :)

    OH showed her the cake idea, but she said she doesn't think she can do the silhouette part. I don't mind though, she only does it as a hobby but she makes beautiful cakes (she did OH's brothers wedding cake in June)

    I couldn't sleep last night so was on pinterest for about an hour last night and need to go back through and see if I can narrow it down, then get OHs opinion! I've come to realise that the cake is one of the hardest things to choose!
