We raked a lot of leaves over the weekend around here. The trees are just past peak color and the leaves are raining down in our yards.
Another thing raining down – acorns!
Which brings us to today’s fall-inspired wedding cake featuring colorful fall leaves and acorns.
This one-tier cake practically screams fall … in an elegant and refined manner of course. Read More
I have been craving chocolate lately.
I blame the displays of Halloween candy in the stores and the fact that I’m trying to avoid sweets.
So, to curb my cravings I’ve been looking at chocolate wedding cakes. And today’s featured cake looks delicious!
This naked chocolate cake is the perfect “undressed” cake for a fall wedding thanks to the espresso frosting and the fresh berries and figs that adorn the cake. Read More
It’s November! There is no denying it now – we are celebrating all things fall!
For me, a fall-inspired wedding cake features dark hues with some pops of dark colors.
Take today’s cake for example.
I love the rustic vibe of this cake from the chocolate ganache icing that gives the cake a “woodsy” feel to the dark fruit and flowers used as accents. Read More
Today is the first full day of fall and I have to admit I'm completely obsessed with all things pumpkin right now.
\Maybe it's the chill in the air or the changing color of leaves, but if I could have a slice of pumpkin pie with a cup of pumpkin coffee all would be right with the world.
And then I thought how perfect pumpkins would be at a fall wedding! Read More
Happy Thanksgiving friends! I hope you are spending your day with family and friends and eating lots of turkey, playing football and scarfing down some pie. In other news…
I did it! I actually found a Thanksgiving themed cake that is NOT shaped like a Turkey. Who knew it was possible?
The people at The Pink Cake Box must have had an un-turkey like vision for this beautiful three tiered spice cake. Yum. A Thanksgiving wedding with spice cake just seems like an amazing idea. In order to make it fall themed they added apples, Read More
Halloween is my second favorite holiday of the year. It’s a close second to Christmas…but that’s not really a fair comparison though. I mean Christmas lasts from November 1st to January 1st…basically. Halloween gets a good solid week of celebration but it’s such a FUN celebration. One day (or two or three if you happen to be extremely popular and get invited to multiple parties) a year you get to abandon yourself and pretend to be someone (or something) else for just a little while. Did you know that Halloween weddings are actually more popular than Christmas weddings? It’s true. I looked it up in this big book I have in my living room Read More
Happy Fall Everyone!
Yes…I know it’s technically not fall. And I know it’s literally still in the 80s and 90s oh…everywhere, prettymuch. But, you see, I can’t help myself.
There are two things I love (well, there are many things I love…but the “two things” work here, so we’ll call it poetic license.) I love fall. And I love Disney.
So you can imagine how hard I flipped when I saw this ab fab cake topper on Etsy!
