Blue Wedding Cakes
The color blue is so intrinsic to a wedding that there’s even a rhyme about it for brides (who often resort to rhymes to remember the eight gajillion details they’re juggling, since no one thinks getting married is a viable reason for a leave of absence from work.)
Where was I?
“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”
Now, what self-respecting bride takes a trip down that aisle without her something blue? But, for the bride who would like to kick up the color factor a little, without rocking the tradition boat too awfully hard, a blue cake may be just the thing.
Whether it’s sky blue, the softest baby blue, or Tiffany Blue, or even electric blue, this cool color is becoming increasingly popular in wedding cake palettes, particularly as an accent hue. We’re seeing satin ribbons around the base of cakes to incorporate that touch of blue, but gum paste flowers on willowy branches also make a startling statement. And paired as part of a hot color combination, with, say, black zebra stripes, or bold, graphic browns, the demure color can take a front row seat in the trendiest of receptions.
Today’s featured cake is one of those “wow!” cakes. As in, I said “wow!” as soon as I saw it.
If that’s not a showstopper, I don’t know what is.
This cake is almost over-the-top. It’s just teetering on the edge of “too much” but as a whole, it just works. Read More

If there’s one color I love to see on a wedding cake it is blue – specifically a light blue that was made famous by a particular jewelry company.
Today’s featured cake is that lovely shade of blue and the addition of a lace overlay piped onto the cake takes it to the next level for sure.
This cake is elegant and classic and it could also fill the role of “something blue” at the wedding. Read More

Today is the second day of March, which means we are daydreaming about springtime and flowers and warmer weather.
However, it is also currently snowing outside so we are also thinking about snow and ice and cold – all the wintry things that look like the colors of this cake.
We love this gorgeous cake. The three tiers each feature a different shade of blue and it gives it an elegant ombre look. 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
It’s Shark Week this week on Discovery Channel. Which means I’m thinking about the beach and how it’s probably best to stay ON the beach and out of the water.
