Black and White Wedding Cakes
Ah, spring! It’s that time of year when everything is blooming and the flowers are gorgeous. Which means it is a great time to showcase some lovely floral wedding cakes.
I’m a BIG fan of black and white cakes. There is something just so elegant about a black and white cake – even if it’s a white cake with just a hint of black icing or ribbon.
And if you had bright blooms to that cake? Well, that’s just the bees knees. Read More
I adore polka dots. They’re fun and whimsical while still being classic and somewhat elegant.
And if those polka dots look like tiny hearts? Well, that’s even better.
Today’s wedding cake is a study in fun – a stark white, three-tier cake adorned with black fondant hearts instead of black polka dots!
It is nearly wedding cake perfection. Read More
I have a confession to make. I don’t like the color peach. Or the color orange. Or any color that might be close to peach or orange.
But, I love this wedding cake – peach flowers and all.
Look at this cake! It’s so elegant and unique and gorgeous. And if I was getting married (again) I’d want this cake at my reception.
The three-tier cake would be gorgeous without the flowers too thanks to the smooth white icing and the black ribbons with diamond-like brooches. That combination is something I’ve never seen on a cake before and I love it. Read More
Truth be told, I’m not a fan of black licorice. If I had to eat licorice I would choose the red (strawberry or cherry flavored) kind.
But, I am a fan of black and white wedding cakes, so this cake embellished with black licorice is a new favorite. (Plus, I could totally not eat the licorice if I had this cake served to me!)
This cake is stunning in its simple elegance – it’s just a stark white wedding cake adorned with black rope licorice and black polka dots created with royal icing. Read More
I have, over the past year or so, become a fan of non-traditional wedding cakes particularly those that go beyond a white wedding cake.
I love finding cakes that use different hues, whether they’re bright and colorful or more muted black and white.
Which brings me to today’s cake – this lovely black and white cake with ribbons.
It seems like ages since Kim Kardashian married NBA player Kris Humphries in that over-the-top-made-for-TV spectacle way back in August 2011. And while it is sad that the marriage lasted a mere 72 days, we're here to talk about the cake.
The wedding colors were black and white and the cake was a beautiful reflection of that with black frosted layers inserted between the white frosted layers.
The cake itself was six-feet tall, which makes it shorter than an NBA player but taller than his reality TV bride. Read More
I spied this wedding cake and just had to share it with you.
We love fall weddings, don’t we? That hint of chill in the area with the glorious warmth of leaves changing, setting hills and fields ablaze with their beautiful colors. But when you distill and dress up the essence of all of those colors, you come away with gold. If silver is for winter, then gold is surely for fall.

And here’s one for ME!
I love lighthouses, and I love Kara Buntin of A Cake to Remember in Richmond, Virginia (seriously, brides and bakers…READ HER BLOG.) So that prettymuch guaranteed that you were going to see this cake.
So here’s deal…this isn’t actually a wedding cake. But it COULD be. Or it could be a groom’s cake (but it isn’t, that I know of.)
But don’t you love it? It’s a base Read More
And where does this first day of April find you? We are chillin’, back home from our little getaway, and eager to take on the last quarter of school before – yippee! – summer vacay! While it’s hard to stay focused some days, when I remember that my focus is on, you know, cake and pretty…well, it suddenly puts it all in perspective.
So, what are your favorite finds lately in the world of wedding? Let’s compare notes! But first, we’ll take a look at Read More
