I wanted to entitle this one “Naked Cake.” But I didn’t know how Google might handle that.
I look at a LOT of wedding cakes, Dear Readers. So I see a lot of trends. Some trends are, well, trends. Some “trends” are things that start out adorable, but after you’ve seen them twenty times, well…not so much.
The use slices of tree trunk to signal “I am rustic” is starting to kinda fall into that category for me. However, I had to show you this one, because Read More
You know, we lurve cake around here in all its permutations…we’ve featured plenty of cupcakes, mini cakes, and cake pops right alongside beautiful and statuesque wedding cakes.
We do love the whole cake pop trend especially, however (tomorrow, my favorite will be cupcakes, or pie – pronounced /pah/ here in the South. I’m fickle that way.) But I digress. Cake pops are darling and they are yummy, which makes them fabulous.
But how do you artfully display them, without reducing your swanky wedding reception to what Read More
We’ve seen hand painted wedding cakes. And we’ve seen roses wedding cakes. But we’ve never seen someone put the two together. The beautifully talented and oh-so original Victoria Made has once again set our hearts aflutter.
We love the simplicity Read More
Greetings, friends and fans of the lovely!
Something truly tragic happened this week. Yes. The silk string on my pearls frayed and now I am pearl-less until I get them fixed.
No, I’m serious.
So, in determining what to do about this predicament, I mean, what DOES a girl do? Have a strand for everyday of the week so that they don’t wear out? Where costume pearls or freshwater jobbies for everyday-around-the-house wear? Because I am totally serious when I say I wear them Read More
But I never tire of any of these elements, or of Renay and her beautiful work.
Renay tells me a lovely story about this cake. She and the mother of the bride had a rather random connection. They had served on their church’s worship team, but hadn’t seen each other in years; however, they recognized one another immediately when they met at Read More
Um, why didn’t this occur to any of us ever before?
I thought this idea was so cute as soon as I laid eyes on it. I mean, c’mon, I cannot be Read More
I feel like putting on my lacy gloves, Jessica McClintock hat, and heading to a tea party!
Isn’t this precious? Helen and David certainly had a lovely little cupcake tower and cutting cake to celebrate their Big Day. I love the petal pink hue, and the fluttery Read More
Did you know that beehives often symbolize industry, harmony, and order? Well, if that be so, then we think using a beehive as a symbol for marriage is to get off on exactly the right foot. After all, marriage takes work, and harmony makes it all the better, yes?
Paige and Justin, our bride and groom whose Read More
It’s one thing to see a cake which features details that prove that the cake artist is well-versed in the culinary arts. But it’s quite another when the baker also proves that she is an artist in the true sense of the word. Today’s featured cake shows just such a gift. We actually linked to this beautiful hand-painted cake by Dream Day Cakes of Gainesville, Florida, in our Let Them Eat Cake Round-Up last May, but it’s so special, we thought it deserved its own post.
Notice the details: both the tree on the bottom tier, as well as the branch that the bird cake toppers are “perched” on, were handpiped meticulously by baker and cake artist Yeni Monroy. Fred Read More
This cake caught my eye right away. Featured at a wedding in Santa Ana, California, what a rich look it has! I love the geometrical pattern of the coins all over the cake; it’s executed flawlessly…and do NOT think that that happened without a whole lotta work. The edible coins rest on a palette of buttercream, and the whole thing is quite Read More
