fresh flowers on wedding cakes
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
Things are still all a bloom around here thanks to a nice combination of April showers and warm, sunny days.
Which means I’m still looking for wedding cakes adorned with fresh flowers because they’re absolutely perfect for spring weddings.
This four-tier square wedding cake is elegant and simple and has a fresh feel about it.
The square tiers give the cake a modern feel, while the pearl icing embellishments add just the right amount of elegance.
And you can’t go wrong with fresh cattleyas for a floral addition.
Of course if you aren’t a fan of that flower you can always adorn your cake with a flower that matches your bouquet – giving your wedding cake an extra personal touch.
You can find this spring floral wedding cake here.
We’re inching closer and closer to Valentine’s Day and if there’s one time of year when roses take center stage it’s now.
Which is why we’re featuring a lovely wedding cake with fresh rose petals today. This cake is pretty and elegant and is a fun and unique way to showcase fresh flowers on your cake.
At first glance it looks like the cake is decorated with icing ribbons between the tiers, but look closely. Those are rose petals arranged as a ribbon. It’s pure floral genius! Read More
We don’t often think about a simple one-tier wedding cake, but it’s a trend that some brides are going with.
After all, if you’re having a small reception there’s no need for a huge multi-tier cake.
And if you’re going to keep things simple, it’s always a good idea to make it simply beautiful. Read More
As much as I love wedding cakes with sugar flowers, I also love wedding cakes that feature real flowers and plants.
Just like this cake with succulents.
I love the understated elegance of the cake and the use of succulents just adds to that elegance.
I have to admit as much as I love bright flowers on cake I also love when brides forgo that bright pop of color for something a bit more understated. Read More
I never was very good with geometry and all those weird shapes that went with it.
But I can tell you this – I’m a big fan of wedding cakes that aren’t the “traditional” round or square shapes. In fact, my own wedding cake was heart-shaped (which was trendy more than a dozen years ago, trust me!)
And that brings us to today’s cake – the geometric wedding cake. Read More
Since your wedding cake is the centerpiece at your reception, it makes sense to pick a cake that will make you and your guests smile.
This super cheerful – and very pink! – wedding cake fits the bill.
I am loving the simplicity of this cake. One tier, pink icing, and fresh poppies.
No muss. No fuss.
This cake would be perfect for a small, outdoor wedding in the spring or summer. It would even be lovely at your bridal shower. Read More
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
This week's Flashback Friday features another reality TV star – and while they aren't really celebrities – sometimes they do have really amazing wedding cakes.
Jesse Lenoir was a contestant on Project Runway a few years ago, and while his wedding cake is quite incredible I also have to point out that he designed the bridesmaid dresses for his wedding.
But let's talk about this cake. Read More
