While we’re huge fans of traditional wedding cake with flowers and cake toppers and all that jazz, we do love a dramatic, non-traditional cake.
Like today’s dark and dramatic cake with black icing.
This cake, featuring honeycomb design on the dark icing would be perfect for a winter wedding – or even an early spring wedding. Read More
I really like the idea of having a separate centerpiece cake just for the bride and groom to cut and enjoy.
And then you can have other small cakes for the guests or a dessert bar. Something different and a bit out of the ordinary.
Today’s cake would be ideal for that concept.
This single tier cake is perfect for the new couple – you could even have it at the “head” table and then set up other cakes and desserts elsewhere. Read More
It's been a while since we gave the grooms any sort of cake love, so today I though it would be nice to feature a grooms cake.
And, since I'm in desperate need of a trip anywhere, I just had to show you this really cool groom's cake. It was featured in an article titled “Weird Grooms Cakes” but there's nothing weird about it in my opinion.
In fact, if you and your groom-to-be are avid travelers, this would be a completely awesome cake for him. Read More
I love a cute wedding cake topper as much as the next girl and when one catches my eye, you can bet I'm going to share it with all of you!
If your groom-to-be is a golf fanatic and you want to surprise him with a nod to his hobby, this is the perfect cake topper for your wedding cake.
The groom figurine is dressed to the nines in his wedding day tux, but is carrying his golf bag, wearing his golf shoes, and checking his watch Read More
I recently attended a wedding where the bride and groom had an actual tree stump as the centerpiece on the gift table. The story was that they cut the tree down themselves and carved their initials in the trunk. It was quaint and rustic, and admittedly a little bit different. Read More
Here we go! Hold onto your fascinators! It’s wedding season, y’all!
From now until Thanksgiving, my pastry and wedding planner friends will be cranking out beautiful creations and events, with so much originality and “omigosh that is so awesome and gorgeous!” that we’ll hardly be able to stand it! How many weddings will you be attending this spring, summer, and fall? Our calendar is FULL!
While we are super looking forward to Read More
I will admit that I have no idea who is in the World Series. I am aware that it is happening because it’s on my television every night and has pushed my beloved Glee! and The New Girl back to November 1st..but I digress. Not a sports girl. I am so not a sports girl I actually had to ask my husband if the “baseball one was called the World Series or the Super Bowl”. That’s how awesome I am.
However, if you put sports into edible cake..I’m all about it! Just like this grooms cake which is a bat and ball combo. I don’t know the back story on this couple or this cake or anything–but doesn’t it look like it’s a guitar as well? I am not a music girl. In fact I am about 75 times more a sport girl than an instrument girl..so who knows really. I could get all technical here and tell you how I think the bat looks like the “stringy thingys” and how that “little black thingy at the bottom looks like the thing on the Guitar Hero guitars that makes you get more points”. Jealous of my guitar knowledge?
What do you think? Is this a baseball/guitar cake or am I just crazy?
And so it continues. The hot hotness of summer, I mean.
Vacation is over and school’s looming up before us here (we go back August 15 in these parts. Ugh.) It’s extremely hard to school supply shop when you’d rather be at the beach, yes? Maybe someone needs to make some cute little plaid bikinis with matching cardigan cover ups. And we can have apple tartlets in lieu of, well, you know. So who’s gonna make the kiddoes go back to school if Mama doesn’t want to?
But I digress.
I have an AWESOME visit with my best friend coming up, and more wedding pretty Read More
Raise your hand out there if you can make any sense whatsoever in the morning without first ingesting coffee.
Well, aren’t you the lucky ones.
For the rest of us, who balk, nay, cry at the thought of not starting our morning with a cup of coffee, I give you the ultimate coffee tribute. The Coffee Cake.
The Starbucks Coffee Cake.
So, disclaimer: Starbucks isn’t paying me a single cent to tell you that their coffee courses through my veins! And so, when I saw this incredible cake Read More
What a week for weddings it has been. And to think – the season is just beginning!
The world watched Friday as Kate Middleton – now HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – married Prince William in a beautiful ceremony that was both modern and traditional all at once. Christen and I tweeted and texted and Facebooked with our best girlfriends from all over, as we all enjoyed the elegant spectacle.
Now, we’re sure to have Read More
