This is happening. I was a little disturbed that I found this after Halloween. This would have made a great addition to my week of Halloween themed cakes. However, I sadly found it just a few weeks after Halloween and holding on to it for next year would have been smart. Sadly, I just couldn’t keep this to myself.
I had to share.

Alice in Wonderland-themed weddings have hit an all-time high this year.
No seriously, I’m not kidding. I’ve seen high-end themed weddings that would BLOW your minds and homespun adorable themed weddings that are just, well, adorable. Much like these petit fours. Down south we just call these “cake squares” but a petit four can actually be a small macaroon, cake or a baked meringue. I love how these petit fours are actually covered in sweet pastel colors like pink, Read More
Even though I am a teacher, my undergraduate major was Theatre. I never actually wanted to be an actress or anything. My initial plan was to teach Drama…which I eventually did…but then many years later have ended up teaching 2nd & 3rd grade…where, coincidentally, we have plenty of drama.
Anyway, my point is that for part of my graduating performance, I had to present a poem as a monologue. I chose i carry your heart by e.e. cummings. It seemed appropriate. I had just started dating my future husband a few months before and I was about to graduate (he was not) and move to Read More

Well, by now you know that we are all about the seasons around here. But sometimes it’s nice to see an expression of seasons in a way that isn’t so typical. Take autumn, for instance. You think autumn wedding cake, your mind automatically goes to colored leaves. But here’s another take on the colors of fall: rich red roses.
It was love at first sight when I saw this cake. The simple buttercream finish is trimmed with a wide, black ribbon, elegant scrollwork, and the most beautiful deep red roses. For an interesting contrast, the roses are paired with orchids. You would never think, “I know, I’ll put orchids and roses Read More

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I hope you are spending your day with family and friends and eating lots of turkey, playing football and scarfing down some pie. In other news…
I did it! I actually found a Thanksgiving themed cake that is NOT shaped like a Turkey. Who knew it was possible?
The people at The Pink Cake Box must have had an un-turkey like vision for this beautiful three tiered spice cake. Yum. A Thanksgiving wedding with spice cake just seems like an amazing idea. In order to make it fall themed they added apples, Read More

Well it took 11 months…but I am now proud to feature AWCB’s first Star Wars wedding cake. At least my first Star Wars wedding cake. Brooke may have featured one but I don’t think so.
Well…I’d love to tell you all about what exactly is going on here but sadly…I cannot. All I can tell you is that it appears to be snowy and Princess Leia and what I am assuming is Hans Solo (or this could be Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen) are hanging out with a very large robot thingy.
