I’m a sucker for a bag full of miniature candy bars.
They’re pretty much the best thing ever – all my favorite chocolate bars but in bite size packages!
So how fun would it be to have a bowl of bite size sweets at every table at your reception? Um, it would be super fun!
These miniature candy bars – Hershey’s of course – would also make a great addition to a “candy bar” if you’re thinking about that as a cake alternative. Read More
Naked wedding cakes are one of those wedding cake trends that I’m not sure I can fully support.
I mean, c’mon. These cakes are seriously lacking in one very important ingredient – FROSTING! But, as the saying goes, it’s what in the inside that counts.
And if you’re going to go with a naked wedding cake for your reception just make sure it has a lot of icing inside. Then I’ll be OK with it. Read More
It’s been established that I’m totally in love with the sprinkle wedding cake theme right now.
Which is really kind of weird because in reality I don’t like sprinkles on cake or cookies (or ice cream). But I love how they look on a wedding cake.
I think it has to do with the “whimsical factor” that sprinkles add to a wedding cake. Because we all know how boring some wedding cake can be. Read More

Lately I’ve been daydreaming about the beach. A lot.
This is likely due to the fact that very soon I’ll be lounging on a beach in the Caribbean without a care in the world.
But it also got me thinking about beach-themed wedding cakes since it is the perfect time of year for a beach wedding.
And then I found this cake and fell in love. Read More

One of my favorite things about spring – when the weather finally gets warm here in the midwest – is planting flowers!
I love going to the local gardening store and picking out different flowers to plant all around the yard.
Which is probably why I love this heart-shaped plantable confetti as a wedding favor idea! Read More
I love the idea of using fresh flowers to adorn a wedding cake – especially in the middle of spring when everything is in bloom and so pretty!
The best part about using fresh flowers is that you can pick and choose the perfect flowers to match your theme, colors, and personality.

I will admit that I have a love-hate relationship with “naked” (non-frosted) wedding cakes.
On one hand I love the elegance and modern vibe of the cakes.
But on the other hand I’m a frosting kind of girl – the more the merrier. So a cake that purposely lacks frosting is suspect.
However, I do love this naked wedding cake if only because the cake batter has sprinkles baked in, giving it a very spring-y, colorful vibe! Read More
