Everyone is expecting a cake with white icing, even if the cake inside is a variety of flavors. So why not wow your guests and surprise them with a chocolate frosted cake?

Since a good portion of the country is buried in white fluffy snow, it seemed appropriate to focus on an all-white wedding cake today.
Granted this cake is way prettier than any pile of snow – and it won’t make your toes cold either!

As much as I’m a fan of traditional wedding cakes when I see cakes that showcase ‘thinking outside the cake box’ design it’s exciting. And this charcoal gray cake is a new favorite. Read More

It’s time to think outside of the cake box today!
As much as I love wedding cake (actually all cake), sometimes it’s nice to color outside the lines and do something unexpected.
