naked wedding cakes
If there’s one fruit that makes me think of all things summer it is the strawberry.
It could be the dead of winter (like right now) and if I buy strawberries at the store I feel a little more hopeful about warm weather that is coming down the pike.
Which brings me to today’s wedding cake. This lovely, simple one-tier cake adorned with strawberries. Read More

It’s been a bit chilly around here in the evenings, which makes me think about fall.
Oh how I love fall. It’s my favorite season – full of apples, sweaters, and all things pumpkin spice.
Of course I know we still have weeks of summer left. That’s how it is in August and September in the Midwest. We get teases of fall for weeks. Read More
Ah, bundt cakes. The ubiquitous cake of the 1950s and 1960s.
They’re so retro that they’re cool again – just ask my mom. She loves to bake bundt cakes for family birthdays, complete with homemade chocolate drizzle.

Today I’m showcasing another naked, unfrosted wedding cake simply because it’s like nothing I’ve seen before.
Not only is it part of the whole “naked wedding cake” trend that just keeps hanging on (what do you have against frosting??) but look very closely at the cake.
Do you see what I see?
Yep! That’s right! Star Wars Lego figurines.
That. Is. Awesome. Read More
Right now it is full-on strawberry season here in the Midwest. It’s actually a rather short season as “fruit seasons” go, but we take full advantage of it, enjoying all things strawberry for a few wonderful weeks.
And one of my favorite things has to be chocolate-covered strawberries. There’s just something so decadent about that combination.
Which is probably why I’m loving today’s cake. Read More
OK, I’ve been featuring a lot of naked wedding cakes lately – which is odd since I’m a frosting lover.
But today’s cake is THE naked cake of the season so far.
First, it’s chocolate! And second, there’s a cascade of chocolate glaze on top of the cake that takes it to another level entirely.
Oh. My. Chocolate. Read More
I made a trip to a local greenhouse over the weekend to purchase my summer flowers.
And while picking out my blooms, I spied the strawberry fields next door which got me thinking about that sweet summer fruit.
Around here, strawberries hit their peak in mid-June or so, which means I’ll have a chance to enjoy some very, very soon!
But for now I’ll have to be happy with today’s wedding cake – which is adorned with bright red strawberries! Read More
