If there’s one thing I wish I could do over from my wedding so many years ago it would be to include chocolate in my wedding cake.
Back in the day it was all about the white wedding cake – sure the flavors under the icing could vary, but standard white icing was all the rage.
But now I love the idea of serving a chocolate cake with chocolate icing because your guests will never expect it! Read More
This week it has felt like fall and I can’t say I’m complaining about the cooler temperatures. The leaves are just starting to change too which makes it even more obvious that fall is just around the corner.
So it’s a good time to start thinking about fall wedding favors that your guests will love. Read More
It sure feels like fall today so that got me thinking about all things fall, like trips to the apple orchard. And baskets full of apples.
Which brings me to today’s wedding cake inspired by baskets.
I really like this five-tier cake for several reasons, including the fact that the icing color is rather non-traditional. It isn’t often that you see a mocha-hued wedding cake. Read More
Let them eat…pumpkin pie!
OK, yes. There are still several weeks of summer left but I’m starting to spy fall decorations and pumpkin flavored treats all around. So I figured it was high time to start thinking about fall wedding cakes.
Or pies, like today’s pumpkin pie.
Now this is a completely non-traditional “wedding cake” but I really love it! This would be perfect for a late fall wedding – or even a wedding during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Read More
It seems almost official doesn’t it?
Summer is just about over. Everything is back-to-school this and that…so it’s time to fit in a few more beach-themed cakes and toppers before everything turns to pumpkins and fall.
Which brings me to today’s cake topper. I am a huge fan of Adirondack chairs – they grace the deck of my favorite beach house.
And this “Jimmy Buffet” themed cake topper with chairs and miniature tropical drinks is exactly what every beach-themed wedding cake needs!
This cake topper is from Landscapes In Miniature which is a quirky shop on Etsy!
The two chairs with the mini drinks and sea shells would be perfect for your beach-y wedding cake. You can also choose to add two pairs of flip flops to the cake topper design.
You can find these and several other adorable and fun cake toppers on this Etsy page!
We’ve featured a lot of very bright and vibrant wedding cakes on this blog, but sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics.
And today that means an all-white wedding cake creation.
This all-white cake would work in all seasons and with any color scheme making it versatile and very elegant.
I love the simple satin ribbon around each tier of the cake and the white flowers add to the overall elegance of the cake. Read More
If I could only eat one type of sweet treat for the rest of my life it would be a toss up between chocolate and caramel, but in the end the ooey gooey caramel would be victorious.
Which might be why these personalized bags of handmade caramel sticks are my new favorite edible wedding favor. Read More
Sure the calendar says it is only the middle of August but we all know that fall is right around the corner. However, I’m still clinging to summer with all my might, which means we’re still going to talk about summer wedding cakes.
Just like today’s beautiful pink and white creation.
This gorgeous three-tiered cake features light pink and white icing with a ruffle design that really pops. Read More
Gone are the days of the ‘traditional’ bride and groom cake topper. Now it’s all about modern and “playful” decor for the top of your wedding cake.
I’m sure gonna miss those porcelain figurines atop a white wedding cake.
But seriously, all joking aside … I really do love seeing fun and whimsical cake topper on wedding cakes. Heck, I’m even a fan of just using fresh blooms to accent the top of your cake.
As long as the cake topper adds beauty to the cake I say go for it! Read More
