I can’t help it. Blame it on living in the mild-weather southeast, but once Christmas is over, I’m on to summer and beach outings. This beautiful wedding cake, with its basket weave motif and full blown roses, shouts “Summer!” to me.
But it could also be shouting Read More
I don’t think that I’ve mentioned in the last five minutes how much I love Paris.
The hubs and I honeymooned there. Sounds like a no brainer, right? Honeymoon in the City of Love (or Lights, if you prefer.) But it actually wasn’t our first choice.
We wanted something domestic – in North America more or less – so we didn’t have to hassle with passports and the like. But as we researched, we kept finding super affordable flights to Europe (ah, the good ole, pre-9/11 days…) — until suddenly, we looked at each other, and Read More
Time for another fabulous themed cake. This one falls in the “juxtaposition of things that definitely don’t remind you of cake, but it’s so pretty you can’t help yourself” category.
I think this cake is absolutely beautiful. The Japanese characters are flawless, and the gumpaste flowers are incredibly lifelike. But the star of the show is the assortment of gumpaste sushi that adorns the top of the cake.

This cake topper caught my eye today while I was checking out a feature on cute toppers. It spoke to my inner 40s glamour girl.
It’s such a neat piece, and I think I mostly love it because this was the era of my grandparents. That could be MaMa and PaPa right there, him in his Navy uniform.
The cake topper calls Read More
Today, I’m starting to turn away from the sparse winterishness of January, and toward the ardent blush of Valentine’s Day, which is just around the corner.
Do you celebrate? We don’t do much with it around these parts, but I love the sentiment of being sweet to everyone on V Day. It can be about romance, or you can expand the scope and make it a day to show love to all or those close to you. Remember those fun Read More
Sometimes in January, you just need a little color, yes? A reminder that spring will come again, and fun summer times will be on her heels.
I adore peonies. And from the looks of this Pink Peony Wedding Cake, this lovely White Wedding Cake with a big, flouncy pink peonies, and this Thai-inspired Wedding Cake with a gold-tinged peony, cake artists quite agree.
But today’s Read More
Does anything glitter quite like gold?
This cake is, in a nutshell, drop-dead gorgeous. It’s so luxurious, and just completely fantastic. For possibly the first time, I am saying this silly sentence: it’s too pretty to cut.
It’s not often that I’m Read More
Hola, Everyone! And Happy New Year!
I know we’ve been a little…well…MIA of late. There was sickness involved. And perhaps an impromptu in law visit (don’t worry; it was a pleasure.) And there might be a thing or two besides writing about pretty cakes that I do to bring in the dollars here.
There. I said it.
But anyway! I’m back! And Read More
