A couple of months ago, I talked about the fabulous Cakes By Beth and her equally fabulous 2012 Cake Collection. I promised more gorgeousness from Beth, didn’t I? Well, today is the day, Cake Fans!
While I absolutely ADORED Beth’s Gothic Roses and Birdcage Cake (especially right in the middle of Downton Abbey Fever hitting us here in the States in FULL force), I really, really fell in love with this Nautical Love Wedding Cake immediately. Oh, and I can tell you exactly why, no doubt. If you’ve spent anytime here on A Wedding Cake Blog, you’ve figured out that I am a Florida girl, and lover of all things beachy and water-related. My happy place is staring out at the Big Blue Ocean. I would SUPER be that bride with seashells adorning her wedding invitations (in fact, I was.) So my love for this cake was instantaneous. Love at first sight. That Beth used my favorite color – blue – and lots of shades of it, with awesomeness STRIPES and a very cool rope motif…well, it was icing on the cake. (I had to. I had to go there.)
And one of my favorite things about the collection? Every cake had corresponding cookies or cupcakes, which demonstrate an extension of each theme brilliantly. I love LOVE the marbelized heart!
