floral wedding cakes
Happy day after Valentine’s Day! Since we’re all about celebrating all things loves, we’re still celebrating today.
And today’s featured cake is topped with hugs and kisses!
This simple yet elegant naked vanilla wedding cake is made even lovelier with the addition of the “xoxo” cake topper and a few bright blooms. Read More
I love roses. They’re one of my favorite blooms, especially when it comes to wedding flowers.
In fact, my wedding bouquet was made of roses and I used roses on my 8-tier wedding cake.
Today’s cake is a bit more simple – with just one tier – and much more rustic than my over-the-top early-2000’s cake. Read More
Ah, bundt cakes. The ubiquitous cake of the 1950s and 1960s.
They’re so retro that they’re cool again – just ask my mom. She loves to bake bundt cakes for family birthdays, complete with homemade chocolate drizzle.
Imagine having a bundt cake as your wedding cake – now that would be cool. Plus, they’re basically the original “naked” cake, with only a drizzle of frosting. Read More
I’m a big fan of fresh flowers on wedding cakes.
My own wedding cake was adorned with bunches of Black Magic roses and those dark red blooms made the white cake really pop!
Today cake goes floral in a really big way!
The three tier cake is almost taken over by bright flowers, but oddly enough it works without being “too much.” Read More
Strangely enough (or maybe not so strangely considering my love for all things warm and tropical) I adore flamingos.
Yes, they’re odd looking – tall, pink birds – but they make me think of warm climates like Florida. Which makes me think about summer.
So it seems only fitting that I am in love with this summer-themed cake, made complete with the addition of adorable flamingos. Read More
I love this time of early summer – a couple weeks after all the flowers have been planted, when they’re still bright and blooming.
My backyard looks like a flower shop with pots and containers full of pink and purple blooms.
Which brings me to today’s wedding cake – a lovely two-tier confection topped with fresh garden flowers. Read More
Summer has officially arrived! And that means all the flowers are in bloom around my yard and it’s so pretty.
Of all the wedding cake trends I love (and there are many) I have a special spot for cakes with flowers. Whether we’re talking fresh flowers or sugar flowers, show me a cake with blooms and I’m in love. Read More
I wasn’t always a fan of the color pink. It took becoming a mom to two girls to really bring me around to the many shades of pink.
I love seeing different pinks used in wedding cakes – and it always reminds me of the line from ‘Steel Magnolias’ when Shelby says “My colors are blush and bashful” and her mother responds with “Your colors are pink and pink.” Cracks me up every time.
Today’s cake is a light peachy-pink hue and it’s absolutely perfect for a spring or summer wedding. Read More
The more wedding cakes I look at the more I love seeing fresh pink flowers on cakes!
I never used to enjoy the color pink but I have to admit it really is starting to grow on me.
And today’s cake is such a pretty-in-pink cake! It really is a perfect cake for a spring or summer reception. Read More
Despite the temperatures outside it really IS spring and that means everything is blooming!
This is the perfect time of year to include fresh flowers on your wedding cake. It’s one of my favorite trends when it comes to adding pops of color to cakes.
Today’s cake features peach roses and zinnias – which gives the cake a lovely pastel look, perfect for spring or early summer. If you aren’t a fan of peach roses you could always pick another hue. Read More
