I am going to go out on a limb here and say that spring really is here to stay as we inch closer to April.
With that in mind, I wanted to find a wedding cake that was all about nature and spring-like things. I think this “woodland” wedding cake is that cake.
Our friends at Hockleys Cakes created this one-of-a-kind wedding cake for a bride and groom who “love everything woodland.” I am in awe just looking at this cake and taking in all the incredible details.
The cake itself features three tiers – each a different flavor. I love wedding cakes that have a different flavor in each tier, so in my book this cake is already awesome. Read More
Perhaps at first glance you’re thinking “why would I want to give my guests a garden shovel as a favor?”
And I’ll admit that was my first reaction too. But then I thought about the novelty of this favor and how many ways you could make it a really fun (and useful) gift for your guests…and I had to change my mind. Read More
I always enjoying finding cakes that are whimsical and add an element of fun to the wedding reception.
This cake from our friends at Hockleys Cakes is just what I was looking for! It’s whimsical, fun, and even has a spring-like look and feel to it.
The four-tier cake was created for a bride and groom who were celebrating their big day at an old stately home, according to Michael Hockley. The couple wanted a “vintage fairgroud” feel to the reception and wanted their cake to fit the bill.
And so, the Helter Skelter cake was created. Read More
Bubbles are one of my favorite things.
They’re fun and whimsical and oh so bubbly! And you can’t help but smile when you think of bubbles. Even the word itself is funny. Say it with me – bubbles!
Which bring us to today’s wedding cake that is surrounded by bubbles.
The wedding cake itself is simple enough – iced with a lovely buttercream icing. But what makes it really incredible is the sea of bubbles that surround the bottom of the cake. It’s almost as though the cake is floating on the bubbles. Read More
Spring is in the air!
Yes, it’s true! The first day of spring is this tomorrow and therefore I’m focusing on all things pretty and floral and springy.
Just like this beautiful wedding cake adorned with balls of flowers.
This gorgeous contemporary wedding cake – called the ‘Marlborough’ – is another incredible creation from our friends at Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom.
I am in love with this cake. It’s so pretty and delicate and just downright gorgeous that I can’t imagine wanting to cut into it, no matter how delicious it is! Read More
It isn’t easy being green, especially when it comes to wedding cakes.
But since we’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day today, I wanted to find a cake that had a little bit o’ green in its design.
I think this cake with the green ribbons and cheery daisies is perfect. The green isn’t too overpowering, and the daisies are such a fun flower that you just feel happier looking at them. Read More
In my search for all things spring I happened upon these cute (and very sweet) personalized jars of honey and I just had to share them!
Now when one thinks of wedding favors for your guests I’m guessing jars of honey might not be at the top of the list. Which is why these are absolutely perfect! No one would expect to get a jar of gourmet clover honey at a wedding reception.
It’s a sweet surprise for sure! Read More

Spring is finally in the air! Can you feel it? I certainly can.
And that’s why today I’m featuring a lovely yellow cake – because it reminds me of sunshine and spring and it has a warm and sunny feel to it.
Don’t you just love this gorgeous confection?
I’m not a huge fan of yellow, but this cake is subtle enough that the yellow icing isn’t garish or overly-bright.
It’s pretty and delicate and warm. Read More
