Fun Wedding Favors – Blue Macarons

macarons1

I’m always looking for fun wedding favors (and cakes) so when I saw a story from HGTV show up in my newsfeed the other day I just had to peek at it!

It was a great collection of DIY wedding favors, which are quite popular these days.

Thinking back to my own wedding (a long, long time ago) I didn’t do DIY favors but I did make my own centerpieces and that was a lot of work.

However, these gorgeous macarons would be so worth it! Read More

Pink Macaron Wedding Cake

There are fancy wedding cakes and then there are cakes that are just out-of-this world.

This pink macaron wedding cake fits neatly in the second category.

There is so much going on with this cake that your eyes aren’t sure where to look first – but that’s a good thing!

The three tier square cake is covered in light pink fondant and then macarons – some pink and some playing into the abstract art of the peony cake topper. Read More

Fun Wedding Favor – Mini Apothecary Jars

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love wedding favors that are “mini.”

Whether it’s mini rolling suitcases or mini bird’s nests, the smaller the favor the cuter it is in my book. Of course, it also has to be useful in some way or at least filled with something yummy.

Which brings me to today’s fun mini wedding favor – mini apothecary jars with lids! Read More

Rustic Sweets Table and Pie Pops!

Rustic Sweets Table

Don’t you love when a plan really comes together?

I thought this sweets table was adorable.  Now, I could be missing my mark here, but it doesn’t appear to be highly stylized…in other words, it might be DIY, y’all.  I’m not sure.  But it’s really done well, don’t you think?  From the square of burlap that adorns the table to the lace cafe curtains in the back, it’s just all lovely.  The macarons are a little Read More

Going Beyond the Cake

I know I have mentioned this before..but there are people out there who just don’t like cake.  If you aren’t really a cake person why bother spending a ton of money on a wedding cake or wedding cupcakes?  Your guests might enjoy them but it is your day so you should be able to have a dessert that you enjoy.  Because let’s face it:  there really aren’t any rules when it comes to weddings.  Also, some brides or grooms have gluten or flour allergies…so why have a cake?  I promise…the wedding police will not come out and place you under arrest if you choose not to have a cake at your reception.

I realize this all sounds pretty weird coming from a girl who spends most of her time writing about or eating wedding cakes.  Luckily, there are a lot of really great alternatives to the traditional cake or cupcake.

Something that kind of blows my mind and that I would be thrilled to find at any wedding is the Cheesecake Wedding Cake.  A wedding cake made entirely of cheesecake.  I’ve mentioned before that my inner-Golden Girl would SO have a field day with this option.  However, I felt like it was sort of a long shot.  I know cheesecake is a little pricey and I could not even begin to imagine how much a Cheesecake Wedding Cake must cost.  I was pretty pleased to find out that a.) they do exist and b.) you will Read More
