Do you ever get in one of those moods when all you can think is “Chocolate! I need chocolate!”?
Well, that's the frame of mind I'm in today which is why I searched high and low for a decadent chocolate wedding cake to share with you.
Will you look at this gorgeous cake?
What I wouldn't give for a slice of that right about now.
This cake is the classic devil's food cake – which is really what you want when you're eating chocolate cake. Read More
This week's installment of Flashback Friday has a royal twist to it, simply because when I saw this cake I was shocked at its sheer size and just had to share it with all of you.
Apparently when you're part of the royal family of Monaco – the second smallest country in the world at only 1.95 square kilometers in size (that's 0.75 square miles for us non-metric folk) – your wedding cake has to be enormous.
It's Wednesday and since we can all use a little wackiness in our midweek routine, I thought I'd make today “Wacky Wednesday” and feature a cake that is anything but ordinary.
So without further ado, I give you the Genie Wedding Cake. Read More
Today is the first full day of fall and I have to admit I'm completely obsessed with all things pumpkin right now.
\Maybe it's the chill in the air or the changing color of leaves, but if I could have a slice of pumpkin pie with a cup of pumpkin coffee all would be right with the world.
And then I thought how perfect pumpkins would be at a fall wedding! Read More
This week's Flashback Friday features another reality TV star – and while they aren't really celebrities – sometimes they do have really amazing wedding cakes.
Jesse Lenoir was a contestant on Project Runway a few years ago, and while his wedding cake is quite incredible I also have to point out that he designed the bridesmaid dresses for his wedding.
But let's talk about this cake. Read More
It's been a while since we gave the grooms any sort of cake love, so today I though it would be nice to feature a grooms cake.
And, since I'm in desperate need of a trip anywhere, I just had to show you this really cool groom's cake. It was featured in an article titled “Weird Grooms Cakes” but there's nothing weird about it in my opinion.
In fact, if you and your groom-to-be are avid travelers, this would be a completely awesome cake for him. Read More
There's a distinct chill in the air and the leaves are finally changing, so in my mind it is officially fall.
Which means I'm going to start sharing some great fall-inspired wedding cakes and other goodies. I absolutely love fall weddings – maybe because I had one many moons ago – and there is so much you can do to spruce up your fall wedding day.
For example, you could have a beautiful cake like this woodland themed cake.
Look closely, those ARE mushrooms on a wedding cake. Read More
Today is your lucky day – even if it is Friday the 13th!
I discovered that there is a lot of old folklore on the interwebs about how getting married on Fridays can bring bad luck, but I say pish posh! Go ahead and get married on a Friday. And if you're feeling especially lucky, throw all caution to the wind and get married on a Friday the 13th! (In case you're wondering, there's still one more for this year – December 13, 2013).

Today I wanted to feature a patriotic, All-American cake. Something red, white, and blue.
Let me tell you, it's amazing what you can find when you Google “patriotic wedding cake.”
My favorite cake that I found during my search was this beauty. I love the bright colors of the bottom blue tier and the top red tier. I also love the stark white tier in the middle, accented only by a red, white, and blue ribbon.
I think this cake would be perfect for a Memorial Day wedding, or a Fourth of July wedding, or even a wedding in the middle of September. Read More
Sometimes when I'm looking for wedding cakes it's all flowers and embellishments. But every now and then I find a cake where simplicity is what makes it gorgeous.
This is one of those cakes.
It's your basic, run-of-the-mill five tier white cake. And on its own that would be a stunning cake and you could add some fresh flowers to make it really pop. And you'd have a pretty but basic wedding cake.
I love this cake for the simple fact that it goes beyond the flowers with a brightly hued glaze in between each layer. Read More
