This week’s flashback cake takes us all the way back to July 23, 1986 when Prince Andrew married Sarah Ferguson, who became known as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of York, Countess of Inverness, Baroness of Killyleagh, and Princess of the United Kingdom.
Or we can just call her ‘Fergie’ like everyone else does.
I always liked this royal couple – they seemed a bit more down to earth than Charles and Diana, sort of like an old school William and Catherine – and I was a bit sad when they divorced in 1996.
There must be something in the air this week as I’m still slightly obsessing over all things fall.
And while this cake would look great at any time of year – but would look amazing in the fall – I had to share it with you.
I found this cake while searching “DIY decorations” and perhaps a DIY wedding is not in the cards for you. However, I’m sure your baker could create some lovely leaves to wrap around your wedding cake. Read More
As I drove around town today I noticed some leaves starting to change color. This can only mean one thing – fall is right around the corner!
Fall is the best season in my humble opinion because fall means apples. Lots and lots of juicy and delicious apples.
So take a peek at this cake and tell me how perfect it would look at a fall wedding. It's just amazingly simple and gorgeous. Read More
This week we're flashing back an entire decade to check out this lovely little cake from 2003.
When actress Elizabeth Banks married her beau Max Handleman at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills they reportedly read love letters from their first year of dating rather than reciting vows.

Chocolate and coffee – is there anything better than these two flavors? I think not.
Which is why I just had to feature this cake today – it's a marble chocolate and mocha cake with a marbleized fondant. It's such a pretty – and unique – cake that I couldn't resist sharing it with you!
The four-tiered cake features alternate layers of chocolate marble and mocha marble. And as good as chocolate and coffee are as separate flavors, you know when they're combined to make mocha it's that much better! Read More
I don't know about you, but I always get a kick out of what wedding guests get to take home as favors. I've seen M&Ms, Jordan almonds, pencils, and small boxes of chocolate. But I've never seen something as cute as these bride and groom pretzel rods.
Don't you just love these wedding favors? They're so original and whimsical that your guests will definitely love to take them home. Read More
I was looking at celebrity wedding cakes this week and found so many over-the-top, 10-foot-tall creations that I just wanted something simply and pretty.
So when I saw this lovely and simple cake I knew I had to feature it.
This three-tiered cake was created for the wedding of actress Jaime King anddirector Kyle Newman in November 2007. The cake was a berry and coconut creation, with simple yet lovely white frosting. Read More
I absolutely love cupcakes and had they been the “in” thing all those eons ago when I tied the knot, I would have totally served cupcakes at my wedding.
And these golden cupcakes would have been at the top of my list of favorites!
The cupcakes are carrot cake – which isn't everyone's cup of tea, I know – but I'm sure you could adjust the cake flavor to something you liked if you aren't a fan of cakes made from carrots. Read More
My absolute favorite meal of the day is breakfast. You can do savory and sweet at the same meal – pancakes with maple syrup and a side of sausage links to dip in the syrup is a personal favorite.
So you can imagine my excitement when I came upon this unusual and completely awesome wedding cake that features many of the best breakfast foods out there. Read More
When I saw this cake I instantly adored it, probably because it evokes a little bit of The Great Gatsby vibe with the elegant cake topper and diamond brooch decoration. It's just classically beautiful and elegant.
