If you’re a foodie, or enjoy watching any of the foodie shows on Bravo or Food Network (etc., etc., etc., infinity), then you’ve heard the term “deconstructed” applied to food. It’s been around for quite a while now, but you know, I don’t really mind it. It usually means that the chef is focusing far more on the sum of the parts than he normally would.
This cake caught my eye because it was a “deconstructed” wedding cake. Now, that’s not really all that new. There was a mini-trend of separated tier cakes in the 80s, and it seems to continue to this day (you might remember Christen’s Read More
When I saw this cute-as-a-button Minnie Mouse-inspired birthday cake, I squealed like a little girl. This was cuter than cute. There’s not a level of cute that’s been invented yet that does it justice.
Sure, I know. It’s a first birthday cake. But I live in the land of the Mouse, y’all. So you can just imagine the copious number of Disney fangirls I know. I’m totally serious. They would LOVE this as a wedding cake, or for their bridesmaid luncheon.
There’s somethings always so…just so about Read More
Happy Sunday! I am soooo about to check out for a few days while my ab bestie is here visiting. I can’t wait! It’s been WAY too long. But before I go get my beach on for the week (with a little Dark & Stormy action sprinkled in for giggles), I had to show you what I’ve been seeing this week. Gosh, but it’s been a pretty summer wedding-wise, with lots of homespun and lace.
But before we take our weekly peek at the interwebs, let’s see what we’ve been up to right here at A Wedding Cake Blog.
On Monday, we featured the most DARLING Read More
This cake has two of my favorite flavors – chocolate and honey, Honey – so you were going to see it at some point. Add to it the fabulous design and the gorgeous pop of color from the grosgrain ribbon, and you have cake perfection.
I have a little girl crush on Heather from Sprinkle Bakes anyway, because she makes the most delightful and scrumptious-sounding treats. But isn’t this just the bees knees, quite literally, y’all? Rich chocolate cake, glazed with a Read More
So I know that I’ve proselytized about this before, but I am not a big fan of wedding cake toppers where one party is dragging the other to the altar, or shackling them in some way. I just don’t find it funny to intimate that marriage is unsavory. Stodgy and stick-in-the-mud of me? Perhaps. But if you don’t want to do it, then why are you there?
I love sweet or funny toppers, though. And this one definitely qualifies as the former. A couple dancing, with eyes only for each other, in a darling, tender, saucy little pose. It’s Read More
This wedding cake is like coffee! Isn’t it?
What do I mean? It’s an instant wake up!
I love it. Really really REALLY. Not only is it replete with the world’s happiest flower, the DAISY, but the perfect scrollwork in two of the poppiest of colors, bright orange and magenta, make me want to dance. Or twirl. Or hula hoop. Or maybe all of the above. It’s kinda like a really fun twist on the hot trend of ombre, don’t you think?
I have no idea who made this cake, sadly, so if you do, please, speak up and let us know. In the meantime, enjoy it. Enjoy it like you enjoy a good summer party in your prettiest dress.
Oh, but the summer vibe just keeps on getting summerier. That’s a word, right?
So, today’s cake isn’t so much about the cake itself – don’t be hatin’ on me ’cause it came from Publix Supermarket – but it is about the beautiful way that the bride and groom decided to dress it up with so many darling details.
The cake is the perfect blank slate: white fondant with big, exaggerated, pearl trim. But what really caught my eye were the succulents trimming the cake (LOVE THEM), as well as the adorable – I mean, CRAZY adorable! – lovebirds nesting on top. The final touch is the Read More
Those with any sense know that “And They Lived Happily Ever After” signifies not the end of the story, but the beginning.
Today, we feature another beautiful cake by Jenniffer at Cup A Dee Cakes in Tunnel Hill, Georgia. Clearly, Jenniffer knows this secret, and so does the couple for whom she made this beautiful cake.
So there are lots of fun things to love here. First, be sure to read Jen’s original blog post about how she got that pretty silver lettering onto that cake without going all wonky and downhill like most of us would. Next, don’t you love that vivid pop of Read More
Ah, Happy Summer, Y’all!
Bees buzzing, lazing in a chair with a glass of lemonade, as the hazy sun shines. Tall grasses, children playing – because they are the only ones who have the energy in the heat.
But as the sun sinks lower into the sky, and with it, the mercury, we come alive as the stars come out to play. Grab your pashmina and keep the party going!
I waxed a wee bit poetical right there, didn’t I? Well, I couldn’t help it. I was inspired. By the cake.
Don’t you just love sunflowers? Nothing says Read More
How’s the week treating you? Well, I hope. We continue to do just fine here, as our calendar of visits with friends stays filled up. We’re having a glorious summer here in Florida, and we hope that you are, too.
Let’s get to sharing with you all we’ve spied with our little eye this week. But before that, let’s review the beautiful cakes we’ve featured on A Wedding Cake Blog. Read More
