cakes with fresh flowers
It’s been a while since we talked about an unfrosted wedding cake.
The “naked” cake trend seems to still be going strong, and even though I prefer a cake with a lot more icing, today’s naked cake is a perfect confection for your spring wedding. Read More
A black wedding cake might not seem like the most traditional wedding cake – but that’s why I love the concept!
Imagine the surprise when your guests spot this dramatic and gorgeous black wedding cake at your reception!
I love the rustic look of the icing and the the addition of fall foliage including deep red roses, succulents, and even moss! Read More
I don’t know about you but I’m still glued to the television every night watching the 2016 Summer Olympics.
I’m cheering on Team USA every night (although I will admit to rooting for Usain Bolt the other night!).
And since we are winning a whole lotta gold medals in Rio, I wanted to find a gold wedding cake to keep with the Olympic theme. Read More
Spring is my favorite season thanks to all the lovely flowers that are blooming right now!
They’re a welcome sight after several months of cold winter weather.

This week we’re thinking about all things green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!
And while it isn’t easy being green when you’re talking about wedding cakes, it is quite pretty.
Also, you can’t get more “spring-y” than green. That’s one of the things we love most about spring – everything is turning green!
Today’s cake takes a unique turn with the color green as it’s more of a lime green than a “grassy green.” 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
As much as I enjoy the occasional non-traditional wedding cake, for me it’s all about going back to the basics.
A simple white wedding cake.
I love white wedding cakes in part because they are a great canvas for whatever you might want to add.
This time of year – late fall – I love seeing gorgeous white cakes adorned with fresh flowers in dark hues. Black Magic Roses, Gerbera daisies in dark red, anything that is dramatic! Read More
There’s something to be said for a traditional white wedding cake.
While I do love the non-traditional, oddly shaped, bright colored cakes that I often feature here sometimes it is nice to just find a lovely white wedding cake.
This four tier cake is simple and elegant and practically perfect in every way. There’s nothing boring about it either. The tiers are are iced with traditional butter cream icing.
But instead of leaving them plain the icing is decorated with Swiss dots and diamonds that were piped onto the icing – giving it just the right amount of elegance and pop!
To add even more to the cake – without going overboard – fresh flowers are used to adorn the cake. This is a fun idea because you can use any flower you like. Smaller buds would be ideal for the cake but larger blooms would work for the cake topper.
And, a traditional white cake is perfect in any season.
You can find this cake here.
Fresh flowers are one of my favorite embellishments on a wedding cake.
I love the simplicity of using flowers or greens on a cake because there's no need to anything else to the cake. And, there are so many ways you (or your baker) can incorporate the flowers into the cake's design. Read More
