Kasal, halikan nina Gerald at Kim trending

TRENDING kahapon ang kasal nina Kim Chiu at Gerald Anderson. But wait, hindi po sa totoong buhay ‘yan nangyari ha, kundi sa kanilang daytime drama series na Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin.

Pinakilig nina Gerald at Kim ang kanilang mga fans sa naganap na wedding nina Bianca Agbayani at Gabriel Vilario, ang kanilang mga karakter sa nasabing serye mula sa Dreamscape Entertainment.

Talagang inabangan ng manonood ang pag-iisang dibdib ng dalawa sa episode ng ILAI kahapon kaya naman waging-wagi rin ito sa social media matapos itong maging trop trending topic sa Twitter with the hashtag #ILAIPagbubuklod.

Pinag-usapan din ng mga netizen ang naging wedding vows nina Bianca at Gabriel na tumagos sa puso ng manonood.

“Sa wakas, sa harap ng Diyos at sa harap ng taong nagmamahal sa atin, masasabi ko na ang nararamdaman ko para sa iyo. Bianca, ikaw ang unang babaeng nagpatibok ng puso ko. Sinamahan mo ako para maabot ko ang mga pangarap ko.

“Pero ang totoo niyan ikaw ang pinakamalaking pangarap ko. Makabuo ng pamilya kasama ka, wala nang hihigit pa doon. I love you mahal na mahal kita,” sabi ni Gabriel kay Bianca.

Sagot naman ng bride, hinding-hindi niya iiwan ang kanyang asawa, “Gusto kong magpasalamat sa iyo dahil hindi mo ako sinukuan simula noong una tayong nagkakilala. Kahit na ayaw kong makipagkaibigan sa iyo.

“Noong nahulog ako sa tubig at lumusong ka para tulungan ako, ‘yun na ang simula nang pagiging Superman mo ng buhay ko. ‘Yung puwede kong sandalan.

“Pero alam ko higit pa doon ang gusto mo. Gusto mo maging karamay natin ang bawat isa. ‘Yun bang pwede kang humugot ng lakas sa akin at ganoon din ako sa iyo.

“Kaya nangangako ako sa Diyos at sa lahat ng taong nagmamahal sa atin, na ako ang magiging karamay at kakampi mo sa lahat ng problemang darating sa buhay natin dahil mahal na mahal kita,” sey pa ni Bianca.

Ang tanong, tuloy-tuloy na kaya ang kaligayahan ng bagong kasal o ito pa lang ang simula ng mga bagong pagsubok sa kanilang buhay? Tutukan ang pagpapatuloy ng Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin sa ABS-CBN bago mag-Showtime.

The Brides December 2017 January 2018 Issue Has Arrived

One of the moments I remember most from my wedding wasn't one of the best planned, but it was the part that made my husband, G., and me laugh the hardest.

Basics of Decorating a Wedding Cake

As the centerpiece of many conventional weddings, a wedding cake is essential. It is an integral component of various wedding traditions such as the ceremonial cutting process and the delighted couple sharing the first bite.

Considering the amount of attention that it receives, you want to ensure that the wedding cake is properly decorated. This involves being prepared with a clear decorating plan prior to embellishing and frosting the cake. With time, dedication and effort, you can have an unforgettable cake that looks as good as it tastes.


An important aspect of planning cake is a meeting between the couple and baker to discuss ideas, requirements and expectations. Couples often have specific features that should be included in their cakes such as the wedding theme; floral arrangements color preferences and the venue. These details are useful for visualizing a suitable cake for the wedding and decorating it perfectly.

The flowers that the bride and groom plan to use can be included as decorations to match the floral arrangements of the day. It is also important to be aware of the number of guests that are expected to attend the wedding. This may influence some of the cake decorating choices, including the size and number of layers.


Estimating a budget is crucial to cover the costs of ingredients and decorations that will be used. For a bride and groom that already has a budget, making an effort to stay within the limits will determine how much can be accomplished. Regardless of what the budget may be, there are affordable designs and wedding cake decorating solutions to accommodate every financial situation.

Venue Location

The location of the venue gives you an idea of the type of wedding that is being as well as pertinent information like temperature and weather conditions. For example, butter cream or other forms of cream frosting may not be ideal for an outdoor wedding during the warmer seasons because of exposure to the sun. Frosting that is likely to spoil under such conditions can be preserved by placing layers of fondant. This also helps to keep the frosting looking even and smooth.

Seasonal Elements

Seasonal elements can be used to accentuate a wedding cake. Consider the season and time of year when the wedding is being celebrated. With insight regarding the type of features that will be displayed at the wedding, they can be coordinated to match the season and general motif. A winter themed wedding, for example, may inspire the inclusion of liberally spread white icing, snowflakes, glitter on the cake.

Leveling the Cake

A cake that is not even or smooth is not a visually appealing sight when it is displayed and is the main focal point. Wedding cake experts prioritize the levelness of cakes and usually check on how flat the cake is after it has firmed up and cooled.

Quick Tips

Depending on the couple’s preference, a stand or supports may be used for the cake. Multi-tier cakes require adequate support to maintain stability.

While frosting the cake, the external layer should always be smooth and even.

Stack the cake and consider using fondant to complete the cake or create decorative shapes.
