We have had so many days in a row of classic and traditional and stately, and well, regal. I thought we could use a foil to all of that. And so, I’m pleased to share this charming cake with you on the day after The Big Wedding.
This adorable cake features edible renditions of stuffed and furry friends – Cran and Ludwig – that played a role in the happy couple’s special day. But while the adorable figures perched atop the cake, decorated in beautiful and vivid pearlized hues, are striking, it was the other trim and the configuration that really Read More
I know what you’re thinking…two posts in one day?! What!
Consider this my wedding gift from me…to you…no thank you note required. Oh, who am I kidding? I have Royal Wedding Fever. I’d post 14 posts a day if Brooke would let me. I indulge in her love of plaid..so maybe she would.
But I digress..again. Because this got me all kinds of excited today. Visualize the next few words I am about to type in your head Read More
So yesterday I introduced you to the Royal Wedding Ice Cream Cake from Baskin Robbins. Well, if you aren’t an ice cream and cake kind of person, here is another option for you: the Royal Wedding Doughnut. Oh yes.
Perhaps this could be your Royal Wedding Breakfast, as many Read More
Who needs Fiona Cairns when you have Baskin Robbins? Um, this is not a crack on BR because…ice cream AND cake together…magical.

Just when I thought my cake resources where running a bit dry this beauty pops up!
First and foremost…is this not a beautiful picture?
Anyway, on with the cake! I adore pink. It’s my absolute favorite color on the planet. However, I personally think that pink wedding cakes can be…well…let’s be honest…tacky. I don’t know why, but baby pink on a cake just doesn’t do it for me. This cake strikes my fancy though. The first tier has a sophisticated pink and cream diamond pattern. The second has pink fondant stripes. But what really sets it apart are the adorable tiny dark pink fondant flowers that are scattered across the cake. To. Die. For. Instead of a cake topper, this couple decided to play with the dark pink color and add some dark pink gerbera daises.
I have three loves..blogging, eating, and shopping. Since I often combine my love of blogging and eating (hello, cake), today I decided to combine blogging with my other love: shopping.
More specifically, I’m talking Bridesmaid and Groomsmen gift shopping. I am sure I am not alone in this but I had the HARDEST time coming up with a bridesmaid gift. I had eight bridesmaid ranging in ages 14-26. Seriously, I was stumped. Should I go with something different for everyone? Should I find something generic that would suit them all? And, most importantly, how could I buy eight nice gifts for the most Read More
Happy Easter, Everyone! On this most spring-y of days, we’re excited to look around and see all the beauty that is popping up everywhere. As we shed our winter coats for sun dresses, and trade in those fashionable boots for comfy flip flops, we’re excited to see what will be new for spring and summer in the world of Read More
This is the cake for the bride who just can’t figure out where to add her something blue.
This stunning cake is finished in fondant, with different treatment for each of its three layers: the bottom layer features a quilted pattern; the middle layer has buttercream piped in an intricate-yet-uniform swirl, with an accent of random, baby blue dots; and the top layer is peppered with dots in a triplicate pattern. And, in a move that we haven’t seen Read More
A royal wedding calls for a royal cake baking contest.
Tate & Lyle Sugars, a UK-based sugar refinery, recently hosted a contest, “Let Them Eat Cake,” in which the winners would create a wedding cake fit for, well, a Royal Wedding. They received over 120 entries, and the judges awarded two winners. My personal favorite is this winner created by Cassie Lawrence and Gemma Peat from Truro, Cornwall, featuring an edible Read More
