Spring has officially (finally) sprung!
The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and to celebrate all things spring, it seemed appropriate to showcase a lovely floral cake today.
I love this idea of this featured cake, because it also includes gorgeous cupcakes with pretty pink frosting and flowers! Read More
I love cupcakes. And if given the chance I’d serve cupcakes at every celebration I host, including a wedding reception.
Sadly, when I was married all those years ago the wedding cupcake trend hadn’t happened yet.
But now that cupcakes are all the rage, it is the perfect time to add some cupcake fun to your reception dessert table!
I love the idea in today’s featured cake photo – a small wedding cake (for the newlyweds) and cupcakes for all the guests. You could have so much fun with this concept – think of the flavors you could have with those cupcakes!
You could choose seasonal flavors, classics like white and chocolate, and even fan favorites like red velvet (my all-time favorite cake flavor).
And to add even more deliciousness to the party, make sure you have cute take-home boxes and enough cupcakes for you guests to take one for the road.
You’ll find this cupcake and cake tower here.
I love the idea of serving cupcakes at a wedding reception.
They’re fun and functional. And everyone loves cupcakes!
But what if you want to serve cupcakes but still have a traditional wedding cake to cut too? Simple – serve both!
This is a fun concept – have a small, one tier wedding cake as the “main” cake – basically for the couple to cut – and then surround it by gorgeous cupcakes. Read More
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of edible wedding favors, and that’s especially true when we’re talking about mini cupcakes.
Sure, a full-size cupcake is awesome…but when you’re serving wedding cake to your guests it’s probably a better idea to think about mini cupcakes if you’re going with an edible favor.
These mini cupcakes come in your choice of vanilla or chocolate cake and can be decorated with your choice of sprinkles Read More
There’s something to be said for an elegant, one-tier wedding cake.
With a smaller cake there’s no muss, no fuss but the cake can still steal the show.
While I’m a fan of big, elegant and fancy wedding cakes I also like the smaller cakes.
Whether you’re hosting a small, intimate reception and you don’t need a big cake, or you’re planning on serving other desserts (cupcakes, a dessert bar, or maybe a cheese wedding cake) – a one-tier cake can be perfect for so many reasons. Read More
One of my favorite summer desserts is strawberry shortcake.
But I really just like the strawberries and whipped cream components of the dessert.
So when I saw this strawberry meringue cupcake I just knew I had to share it with you!
Your guests might think they’re getting a strawberry cupcake, but they’re in for a surprise. Read More
I have a slight obsession with cupcakes. Actually obsession might be underestimating it a bit. So when I saw these beautiful rose cupcakes from Syma at Sugar Rush I just had to feature them!
These cupcakes are a step above your ordinary wedding cupcakes. The beautifully crafted roses give a soft, romantic feel to the cupcakes. Can you imagine a tower of these gorgeous cupcakes at Read More
Once or twice..or who am I really kidding here..about fourteen times I’ve shared my love for all that is monogrammed on AWCB.
So don’t you remember that time that you got all gussied up and went out and wore a 600 pound dress made of cake? Oh you don’t.
Me either. But Melissa of Cupcakes OMG! does..in fact she did it not too long ago.
The cake was made by Katelyn Selin, Kait Ingram and Sandrea Park Welch at the Taste of Charleston’s Iron Chef’s Competition. They used forty vanilla and red-velvet sheet cakes and 190 pounds of buttercream. Oh my. Who got to lick that bowl?
The fact that this was in Charleston, which is about an hour and a half from my house, makes me sad I missed this. How often to do get to see a life size cupcake with a human in it? Never. That’s how often. If you have..well then I think I need to hang out with you more often. Send me an e-mail. I’ll send you my phone number and we’ll text and become BFF’s.
You can check out Melissa’s entire blog post with tons and tons of pictures here. And yup, she got to eat her dress. Boom.
