As we inch ever closer to the last month of summer, I’m doing my best to keep a firm grip on the warm weather and flowers, because we all know fall is just around the corner.
That being said, I had to share this cake today because as soon as I saw it I was in love. With a cake.
At first glance you might think “wow, this is a busy cake”…and while you’d be right, I would argue that it’s busy in a good way. A really good way.
I love the stark white icing on the four-tiered cake. But what I love more are the brightly colored flowers that adorn the cake from top to bottom. Read More
Sometimes all you need for a gorgeous wedding cake is a simple white cake topped with pretty flowers.
Like this cake.
It’s so simple and so pretty and I would love to see this at a summer wedding.
I love wedding cakes with fresh flowers – it’s such an easy and elegant way to add something special to your cake.
And you can personalize it by incorporating the flowers from your bouquet or what your bridesmaids are carrying. Read More
Do you remember those candy dots you used to eat as a kid?
You know, the ones that were stuck to strips of paper so you inevitably ended up eating paper AND candy?
How cool would those be on a wedding cake (minus the paper, of course)? Pretty cool if you ask me.
So imagine how happy I was to find this very modern take on the candy dot wedding cake.
It’s bright and colorful and cheerful. And it will take your guests back to their childhood (assuming they’re old enough to remember candy dots). Read More
I’m a big fan of traditional wedding cakes – white frosting, flowers, cake topper.
But I’m also becoming a fan of the more non-traditional cakes we’ve been featuring here.
And every now and then I find an ultra modern wedding cake that knocks my socks off.
This is one of those cakes.
From the straight lines of the square tiers to the 3D illusion of the sugar paste rings, this cake has it going on! Read More
It’s been a while since we featured a groom’s cake, so I thought today was a good day to talk about them.
And I found a doozy of a groom’s cake in my search for something unique and a little different.
I’m talking about this clambake-inspired cake. It is truly one of a kind.
And it’s also perfect for your destination or beach-theme wedding.
Let’s take a moment to really look at this cake. All of the items – the shrimp, crabs, vegetables – they’re all made from sugar paste and white chocolate. Which means they’re edible(and apparently the newspaper is also edible). I’m guessing the “bucket” is all cake too, and yes, that’s silver-y frosting!
If you want a showstopper kind of cake – and one that your guests will remember for a very long time – this clambake groom’s cake is perfect.

The cake was designed by Debbie Does Cakes.
I have to admit, I find the unfrosted – or “naked” – wedding cakes a bit jarring.
I think that’s because I want my cake to be overloaded with frosting. I’m the “corner of the cake” kind of girl because that’s where the highest concentration of frosting hides.
So when I see a wedding cake sans frosting, it makes me wonder “why?”
However, I am always one to give cakes the benefit of the doubt (unless there’s carrot cake involved) so let’s go forth and explore the wonder that is the naked wedding cake. Read More
So you’re having a destination wedding. And it’s at the beach!
Which means your guests will be packing their bags and heading somewhere warm and tropical. And if they’re flying to the destination they’ll need a luggage tag.
Which brings us to today’s fun and functional wedding favor – the flip flop luggage tag!
Who wants a boring “standard issue” luggage tag? Not me. Give me something that will make my suitcase stand out in the sea of monochrome suitcases on that conveyor belt. Give me a bright colored flip flop luggage tag.
Your guests will love these luggage tags. They’re cute and fun and every time they travel they’ll remember the amazing time they had at your beach wedding. As an added bonus, the flip flop tags come in blue and pink, so you can mix and match the tags and the men won’t be stuck with a pink flip flop luggage tag, unless they want one!
You can find these super cute flip flop luggage tags here.
When thinking about a fun and festive wedding cake for your summer wedding, I say why limit yourself to just one or two colors?
Why not go for the entire rainbow?
Take this super fun cake for example – the four-tier cake would be real showstopper at your wedding. No one expects a wedding cake with rainbow stripes and fruit slice candy. Read More
