As we cling to the last days of summer I wanted to showcase this cake because it reminds of an old fashioned summer fair.
This gorgeous two-tier wedding cake was created by our friends at Hockleys Cakes and they described it as typical English afternoon tea cake.
I love the elegant simplicity of the cake. The smooth white icing accented on each tier with small pearls lends an air of sophistication to the cake. The tiers are separated by white columns. Read More
There are gorgeous, take-your-breath-away wedding cakes.
And then there’s today’s wedding cake which goes beyond leaving one breathless.
This cake is downright stunning.
The four-tier “novelty cushion wedding cake” is another amazing creation from our friends at Hockleys Cakes over in the United Kingdom.
The cake’s intricate and delicate pattern was based on the bride’s wedding dress Read More
Now this is a fun wedding cake!
How often have you seen a wedding cake shaped like a barrel? Never, right?
Well now you can say that you’ve seen it all.
I absolutely love the charm and humor of this wedding cake from our friends at Hockleys Cakes over in the United Kingdom!
The story behind this cake is that the reception was held in a rustic, traditional English pub and the cake was created to reflect the venue. Now that’s a pub I’d like to visit! Read More
I recently saw someone post on Facebook that there are only 20 Fridays left until Christmas.
And while that seems a little bit crazy, I figured today was as good a day as any to feature this Winter Wonderland wedding cake.
Our good friends at Hockleys Cakes created this whimsical cake for a winter wedding. The cake reflects a “Toytown” theme.
The six tier cake features a blue sky background which enhances the colors of the toys, animals, and buildings that are on display. Read More
Sometimes you find a wedding cake that is so stunning you can only muster a “wow!”
This is that wedding cake.
The cake creators at Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom have once again wowed me with another beautiful and unconventional creation.
This cake, Mount Everest, is a six-tier cake that is covered with shards of edible wafer paper. Read More
I’m always on the lookout for totally unique and somewhat out-of-this-world wedding cakes.
Why? Because sometimes that “traditional” wedding cake just won’t do it.
Which is why I’m head over heels for today’s cake. I present to you the “West End” cake from our friends at Hockleys Cakes over in the United Kingdom.
This stunning creation has so much going on, but it’s not overwhelming in any way. In fact, it all just works. Read More
I love roses, which means this cake is quite possibly my favorite cake in a very long time.
This cake is another incredible creation by our friends at Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom and it’s gorgeous!
Called the ‘Aphrodite,’ the cake is a vision of pink and white roses.
The three-tier cake is covered in 180 chocolate roses in addition to pink sugar roses. And it’s all hand-crafted.
Not only is this cake a stunner, but…180 chocolate roses! That is a lot of chocolate. If you’re a chocolate fan this is definitely the cake for you.
I love the subtly of the white chocolate roses and the bright color pop from the pink sugar roses. It would be such a lovely cake at a spring or summer wedding, especially if you were incorporating roses into your floral theme.
Many thanks to our friends at Hockleys for sharing this creation with us.

As non-traditional wedding cakes go, this one … well, it takes the cake.
How much love do you have for this posey wedding cake? It’s rather amazing, don’t you think?
And for those of you wondering, a “posey” is a small flower bouquet. (Of course, right now I’m singing “a pocket full of posies” over and over in my head).
If there’s ever a day when you truly feel like a princess, it’s your wedding day.
So why not celebrate with a cake fit for a princess?
A cake exactly like this Pumpkin Carriage Cake from our friends at Hockley’s Cakes over in the United Kingdom.
I don’t know about you, but Cinderella is my favorite princess and this cake is perfect if you’re thinking about a wedding with that sort of theme or if you’re a fan of Disney princesses. Read More
I am going to go out on a limb here and say that spring really is here to stay as we inch closer to April.
With that in mind, I wanted to find a wedding cake that was all about nature and spring-like things. I think this “woodland” wedding cake is that cake.
Our friends at Hockleys Cakes created this one-of-a-kind wedding cake for a bride and groom who “love everything woodland.” I am in awe just looking at this cake and taking in all the incredible details.
The cake itself features three tiers – each a different flavor. I love wedding cakes that have a different flavor in each tier, so in my book this cake is already awesome. Read More
