Chocolate Stout Groom’s Cake


It’s been a really long time since we’ve showcased a cake that could pass as a groom’s cake.

But today we have a perfect groom’s cake!

This naked chocolate stout cake would be the ideal cake for the groom. (Of course it would also work as a non-traditional wedding cake, but we really like the idea of a groom’s cake). Read More


Clambake-Inspired Groom’s Cake

groom cake

It’s been a while since we featured a groom’s cake, so I thought today was a good day to talk about them.

And I found a doozy of a groom’s cake in my search for something unique and a little different.

I’m talking about this clambake-inspired cake. It is truly one of a kind.

And it’s also perfect for your destination or beach-theme wedding.

Let’s take a moment to really look at this cake. All of the items – the shrimp, crabs, vegetables – they’re all made from sugar paste and white chocolate. Which means they’re edible(and apparently the newspaper is also edible). I’m guessing the “bucket” is all cake too, and yes, that’s silver-y frosting!

If you want a showstopper kind of cake – and one that your guests will remember for a very long time – this clambake groom’s cake is perfect.

You can find this cake here.

The cake was designed by Debbie Does Cakes.


Wedding Cupcakes: Let Them Eat Cake and Cupcakes

cake and cupcake

Sure, cupcakes were all the rage for weddings in 2013 and that trend is likely to continue this year.

But if you’re looking for something that goes beyond “just cupcakes” why not consider serving a wedding cake and cupcakes! That’s right – it’s the best of both worlds.

I saw this whimsical idea here and just had to share it with you because it’s really brilliant. Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for August 19, 2012

Diy Dreamy Vintage English Wedding Cake

Greetings and salutations!

I have a question for you:  why, oh why, does it take going back to school for kiddoes to make life suddenly make sense and seem orderly again?  I think that’s hitting the nail on the head.  It’s a sense of order.  A sense of order that my household has been sorely lacking since the Great Homeschool Experiment of ’11.

Homeschooling parents?  God bless ’em.  We found out that a) this career girl may not be cut out for that kinda thing; b) my daughter may not be, either.  So maybe we’ll revisit in a few years.  Or maybe not.  You don’t know until you try it, and for now, we’re gonna throw the towel in.

What does this have to do with weddings?  Oh, Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for June 17, 2012

strawberry wedding cake

Happy Father’s Day to all of our dads out there!   While we are fixin’ to set out on a beach picnic (I know…tiresome…that’s how we celebrate everything, it seems), I love showing you what we’ve been up to all week, as well as checking out what our friends are doing with their extraordinary gifts and abilities.  Let’s start with our some pretty cakes, brought to you by, well, US!

On Monday, I shared with you what is destined to be one of my most favorite cakes EVER – the Teacup Wedding Cake.

Tuesday brought with it Shades of….Purple, when Kasey shared a lovely Read More


Peanut Butter Addiction Cake

Reese's Cake

Peanut butter and chocolate…is there a more heavenly combination? But seriously I am full-fledged Reese’s addict, and this cake is a dream come true!

I came across this blessed jewel on Pinterest but it originated from the lovely Cup A Dee Cakes. They classified it as a groom’s cake but I happen to think that it would be a great non-traditional (and yet still traditional) wedding cake.

And if you didn’t swoon over the copious amounts of Reese’s cups on the cake get ready for the deliciousness inside! It is a dark chocolate cake covered in peanut butter buttercream frosting. I’m in heaven ya’ll!

Now if you will excuse me I am off to satisfy my Reese’s craving while you all contemplate the amazingness of this cake!

For the Guys: Star Wars Groom’s Cake

Star Wars Groom's Cake

Oh. My. Star. Wars.  This cake by Anna Cakes of Winter Springs, FL is all kinds of amazing!

I grew up in a house filled with Star Wars.  My little brother was in elementary school when they released Episode I The Phantom Menace, and it played non-stop in our house for years. I swear I can probably still recite it to you. There may have also been a few epic light saber battles that went down in our kitchen (much to my mother’s dismay).

So when I saw this cake I was Read More


Combination Wedding and Groom’s Cake


This cake caught my interest on Pinterest. Why? Because I feel like it summarizes my life. I am a teacher so I spend most of my days sticky sweet and annoyingly traditional. However, every once and awhile I can easily flip to the dark side and my kids think “Hey, she’s a little nutty”.

So. That’s me. Half a traditional beautiful white cake and the other half a gorgeous chocolate groom’s cake. I have never seen a cake like this and to tell you the truth, I love it. The couple decided Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Chicago Cubs Cake and Topper


I’ve always had a thing for Wrigley Field.

This from the girl who just two short weeks ago asked her husband who won the Super Bowl.  (Answer:  The Cardinals…he has learned that I really just don’t care enough to attribute the right names to the right sports.  Of course I KNOW the Super Bowl is football if I thought about it.  Most of the time I simply don’t care to think).

Anyway.  My thing for Wrigley Field dates back to the first time I saw Sleepless in Seattle and they show a flashback of Sam (Tom Hanks) and Maggie (dead wife) Read More
