I have a serious love affair with magnets. If you walked into my kitchen today you’d see at least 100 magnets on my refrigerator.
I love collecting a new magnet from each place we travel and if I see a whimsical or unique magnet that gets added to the collection as well.
Which brings me to today’s fun wedding favor – personalized wooden magnets! Read More
One of the things I love most about summer is watching all the flowers bloom and grow and sometimes even outgrown their planting pots.
And if you’re having a summer wedding it’s a great idea to showcase some of those gorgeous summer blooms on your wedding cake!
Aside from looking great, when you decorate your cake with flowers you don’t need anything else on the cake – not even a cake topper. Read More
As much as I love the non-traditional cakes embellished with candies or even naked cakes with minimal icing, when it comes down to it I’m still a sucker for a traditional wedding cake.
To me that means a gorgeous and simple white cake with fresh flowers.
You really can’t get any more classic than that unless you add an “old fashioned” bride and groom to the top of the cake. But I’m OK with just fresh flowers. Read More
If there’s one thing you don’t normally hear at a wedding reception is the call for more cowbell.
But if you pass out these cute miniature “kissing” cowbells as favors I bet the guests are going to have a great time!
These mini “kissing bells” cowbells would be perfect for your outdoor wedding – especially if the reception had a country-chic theme. Read More
I love the beach. Specifically I love how the color of the ocean can change throughout a day from dark blue to greenish-blue and back again.
This wedding cake reminds me of my favorite ocean color – that sea green-blue when the water is clear and you can see to the bottom.
The three-tier cake features square cakes adorned with simple white icing and seafoam green Necco candy wafers. Read More
We’ve had a lot of rain around here lately. A lot. But one of the things I love about summertime rain showers is the possibility of a rainbow if the sun just happens to be peeking out during the deluge.
I’m also a big fan of rainbows in cake form – especially if we’re talking wedding cakes.
Think about how fun a rainbow cake would be. Your guests see all these layers of cakes with simple white icing but when the cake is sliced…BAM! Rainbow! Read More
If there’s one sweet treat I can’t ever pass up it’s caramel corn. It is my weakness. I even buy the kind you can make in the microwave at home.
So when I saw these personalized bags of caramel corn as wedding favors I was hooked! This might be my most favorite edible wedding favor ever. Even better than Oreo cookies. Read More
We’re still enjoy the fresh-from-the-farm strawberries around here, but the season is quickly coming to and end.
And so, I thought it would be a good idea to find a gorgeous wedding cake that incorporated that sweet and juicy summer fruit before everyone stopped thinking about strawberries.
The fact that I found a naked chocolate cake with strawberries is so perfect.
As much as I love frosting on cakes I’m a big fan of the naked wedding cake trend. Especially when the tiers are separated by a lot of icing. That almost makes up for the lack of all-over icing. Read More
So we all know that April showers bring May flowers, but around here it’s also true for June and July showers. All the summer blooms look so pretty right now!
Which brings me to today’s cake. I’m loving the tiny orange flowers on this cake.
But I think what really makes the cake POP are the bright yellow sugar swirls. Read More
