Can't it be both beautiful and tasty???
Well, the simple decoration that you are describing is what I'd go for anyway (and did, actually) so for me it'd be no question. I'd always go for better tasting food.slg47|1310519072|2967664 said:given the choice...would you prefer a more delicious simpler cake (think plain, maybe fondant band on the sides, decorated with some fresh flowers) or a good but not amazingly delicious more ornately decorated cake?

Call me superficial. It's not that taste isn't important--I'd like to have both good looks and great taste-- but I haven't really had too many spectacular-tasting wedding cakes in my life. It usually doesn't taste that great. Just a fact of life, most of the time. I never expect the cake to taste that great, so it doesn't bother me when it's not the best. At most weddings I've been to, no one eats much of the cake anyway, because everyone is still stuffed from dinner, and most people want to get back out on the dance floor! I'm not going to be too fussy about it, really. I'll get the best I can afford, and hopefully have a few other dessert options for the guests as well. They'll be having so much fun dancing, they won't care too much.

I guess I'm a little spoiled, my mom used to make wedding cakes for a living, so I have REALLY high standards when it comes to cake.

I have to diagree with a previous poster, I don't think its easier to get good tasting cakes nowadays. I think its the exact opposite, most cakes I taste at weddings really do taste bad and I end up taking 1 bite and not eating the rest, what a waste of money =/
