diy wedding cakes
Despite the cooler-than-normal temperatures that won’t let go, it is officially spring! And that means fresh flowers are on my mind, especially when it comes to wedding cakes.
I love seeing wedding cakes with fresh flowers – they give the cake a nice pop of color while keeping things elegant and classy. Plus, it’s a good way to incorporate your bouquet flowers into the reception.
Now while you might not be carrying mums in your bouquet, I’m still a fan of this springy white wedding cake. Read More
Sometimes a simple wedding cake is exactly what a bride wants for her summer wedding.
Maybe you don’t want all the frills and tiers. Maybe you just want something simple and pretty.
And maybe you even want a DIY cake.
If that description sounds like you, then we have found your cake!
This homemade (as in, made at your home!) white wedding cake is a lovely three-tier cake with zinnias and ivy. 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
In my quest to find a wedding cake that was both beautiful and brightly colored, I stumbled upon this lovely confection and just had to share it with you!
It reminds me of this rock candy wedding cake we featured a few years back but I think I like this yellow, sunny cake a little bit more, if only because the color reminds me of sunshine and spring and warm weather.
Admit it – you thought of sunshine as soon as you saw this cake, right? Read More
This cake is an amazing architectural masterpiece – four tiers of cake surrounded by white chocolate panels and topped with golden raspberries. And the biggest surprise is that this cake can be a DIY project!
The cake can be purchased frosted but undecorated from your local bakery (or if you're really ambitious, you could make the cake). The chocolate panels can be ordered from Read More
This cake reminded me so much of my friend Christen that I just had to share it with you.
Christen used to contribute regularly to A Wedding Cake Blog, and I know that she still loves to keep up with all the Sweet and Pretty that we feature here. And this cake actually reminds me of her for two reasons: Read More
Don’t you love when a plan really comes together?
I thought this sweets table was adorable. Now, I could be missing my mark here, but it doesn’t appear to be highly stylized…in other words, it might be DIY, y’all. I’m not sure. But it’s really done well, don’t you think? From the square of burlap that adorns the table to the lace cafe curtains in the back, it’s just all lovely. The macarons are a little Read More
Today’s cake is for the lover of rustic or DIY: the Charlotte Wedding Cake.
Sometimes in the dead of summer (like, you know, now), simpler just seems better, yes? Sure, ornate cakes with a ton of detail and many man hours will elicit the obiligatory “WOW!” from our guests, and that is all well and good. But I for one find myself trying to Read More
