Fall Basket Wedding Cake

fall basket cake

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


Tree Trunk Wedding Cake with Leaves

tree cake

The leaves are falling from the trees in earnest around here and I have to admit I’d prefer if the leaves stayed on the trees for a bit longer. Because we all know that once the leaves have fallen the snow takes over.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Today we’re talking about leaves. Bright colored fall leaves.

Just like the fondant leaves on this “tree trunk” wedding cake.

I just love the cool fall vibe of this cake. Read More


Rustic Fall Wedding Cake

I think it’s safe to say that fall is officially here.

There’s a chill in the air, the leaves are changing color (at least around here), and I’m starting to see more fall decorations with a lot of orange and brown. So I figured it was a good time to feature a very fall wedding cake.

This is the perfect fall wedding cake – it has rustic colors, leaves, and even an edible tree stump as the cake’s base.

The three-tier cake is iced with a beautiful white fondant that is embellished with gum paste leaves and branches in oranges, browns, reds, and greens. Read More


S’mores Wedding Cake

smores wedding cake

If there’s one sweet treat that almost everyone loves it has to be s’mores.

The ooey, gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers – well, it’s heavenly.

So why wouldn’t you want your wedding cake to be a s’mores wedding cake? I can’t think of one reason.

This gorgeous wedding cake is that s’mores wedding cake we’ve all dreamed of and it looks delicious. Read More


Brown Wedding Cake with White Flowers

The first day of fall is about a week away so it’s about time to start showcasing some gorgeous fall wedding cakes.

And while I’m not normally a fan of brown as a color, I do love brown wedding cakes. I think it’s because they look so dramatic and they really lend themselves to the fall season.

This dark brown wedding cake with white flowers is stunning.

The three-tier cake features a dark espresso colored icing accented with delicate white flowers and it is beautiful. Read More


Deep Brown Winter Wedding Cake

Winter Wedding Cake

I thought I'd feature something a little different today.

You should know that I love the idea of a winter wedding. Actually, I think that for me, I prefer fall and winter over spring and summer anyday for a wedding. I think I love the minimalistic design elements of these seasons, and the rich, warm colors. And there's something about finding the beauty in a sparse landscape that really appeals to me.

This cake is like Read More


Cookie-Trimmed Chocolate Wedding Cake

If you'd like to have your cake and eat your cookies too, then I think this is the perfect wedding cake for you.

Who needs mountains of sugar flowers and miles of ribbon and piped royal icing?  I can't think of a garnish more perfect for dessert than another dessert.

Here, chocolate buttercream, dipped and swirled in old fashioned, homemade abandon, covers a simple three tall-tiered wedding cake.  But not only is the chocolate buttercream yummy; it serves as delicious glue for chocolate cookies, which are white-iced and rainbow-sprinkled.  The whole effect makes me want to grab a huge tumbler of milk and dig right in.  What a completely fun cake!

Once again, we have The Cake Girls in Chicago to thank for this little spot of genius.



Rustic Flower Basket Wedding Cake

I wanted to feature a cake today that was sort of an homage to summer’s last big hurrah.  After all, it’s still summer. It’s too hot to call it fall yet, and besides, we haven’t hit the equinox. :-)

So what signals the end of summer better than gathering an overgrown bounty?  This Flower Basket Wedding Cake was the perfect fit.

Look closely, because those baskets are, in fact, cakes.  The sugar paste flowers appear to be the star of the show when really, they’re just garnish.

Isn’t the detail Read More


Homespun Wedding Cake

Homespun Wedding Cake

Don’t you just want to grab a cup of coffee or a glass of ice cold milk and dig right into this baby?

Lots of cakes that we feature are all about the looks.  And so often, I almost can’t imagine cutting into them because of the hours and hours of work they took to make.  But this cake invites you to get comfortable and cut a big ole’ slab!

If I had to guess (and I do, since I know not who made the cake or what the flavors are) I would say that we have here layers of Read More


Pink and Brown Square Wedding Cake with Scrolls

Pink and Brown Square Cake

It’s the simple touches that really set apart good from fantastic, right?  Anna Hightower from Central Florida’s Anna Cakes totally gets that.

I saw this cake for the first time on Twitter, when Anna sent me a pic.  I immediately fell in love!  I mean, pink and brown are such a fantastic color combo anyway, but then I took in the different design elements – the perfectly piped scrolls, the top layer that was round for whimsy, the brooch and the picture-perfect initial cake topper – they all came together to make a beautiful cake.  But truly, what sets it apart for me is the Read More
