If you are thinking of making your wedding cake, then the Food Network channel is the best source of inspiration. I love the shows they present, the recipes are amazing and they really tempt you to try them. Whether you have bakery skills or you are just a novice in the kitchen, you can try some of these recipes. And if the result it is not so good as in the video, then its fine, you can buy your wedding cake.

The recipe that got my attention is the Cinnamon Vanilla Wedding Cake with Mexican Hot Chocolate Buttercream. Recipe courtesy to Michelle Doll. What I like about this recipe is that it is easy to make it doesn't take too much time just 55 minutes and its delicious because of the spices. So lets start.

    A wedding cake is a showpiece. A symbol. If you are like me, my wedding cake is something that I know I’ll remember forever.
    The traditional wedding cake is a three- tiered vanilla confection with white icing, a miniature bride and bridegroom on top and lots of butter-cream roses. But, cakes today are much more creative and a personal expression of style and come in a variety of shapes, flavors and decorations.
