Ombre Purple Wedding Cake

My favorite color has always been purple – I just love it!

So when I saw today’s featured wedding cake – a purple ombre cake – it was cake love at first sight.

This cake is stunning on so many levels and not just because it is several shades of purple!

The overall design of the cake is so modern and elegant, it just takes your breath away. Read More

As we slog through this cold winter month of January it’s always good to think about warmer climates.

Like, a tropical beach.

And today’s beach-themed cake is the perfect wedding cake to get us in a tropical beach kind of mood!

The bright colors of the pink ombre cake give the cake the perfect spring or summer vibe. Read More


Ombre Gold Wedding Cake


There must be something in the air this week … this is the second gold-toned wedding cake we’ve featured in the past few days!

I’m beginning to think that I have gold on my mind. Which isn’t a bad thing.

Lately I’m starting to look for more rustic wedding cakes – I still love the over-the-top elegant cakes, but there’s something to be said for a simple yet gorgeous rustic cake.

Like today’s cake. Read More

Valentine’s Day 2013 may be behind us, but I thought we could still use a little blush o’ love.  What do you think?

Ombre Red Velvet Wedding Cake

Ombre Red Velvet Wedding Cake

From the pages of Martha Stewart, we find this new take on a much loved classic, Red Velvet Cake.

Everybody knows that the BEST red velvet cakes must be covered in a thick layer of cream cheese frosting, right?  I mean, you do know that?  Well, that doesn’t leave a lot of wiggle room for creativity on the outside of your cake…so this baker, Francina Stewart of One Girl Cookies in Brooklyn, took to the inside to set her cake apart.  The outside is covered with Read More


Tropical Orange and Hot Pink Wedding Cake

Orange Square Wedding Cake

I’m feeling a little tropical-y today, girls.

Isn’t this lovely?  It’s like a sunset, you know?  The structured bands of orange range from palest to deepest with a lovely ombre effect, and the contrasting hot pink posy is, well, perfection.  It makes me Read More


Blue Rustic-Iced Ombre Wedding Cake

Blue Rustic Iced Ombre Cake

How do we feel about a rustic approach to icing, y’all?

Personally, I like it.  Don’t get me wrong.  A perfectly coiffed cake is sigh-inducing for sure.  Still, there’s something so charming about swishy swirls in icing – or should I say frosting? – don’t you think?  Like, I could totally Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for July 1, 2012

Pink Ombre Sweets Table

Hey Guys!  I’m writing to you from Baltimore, Maryland, where we are hanging out in anticipation of going later to a – you guessed it – family wedding.  Good times, since I’m getting to experience both an epic heat wave and some of the worst storms in history.  A line of wind and thunderstorms ripped through here last night after wailing on my home state of West Virginia, and we swore we saw Dorothy’s house floating through the air.  So here’s hoping that all of you out there are safe, sound, and will have power back in the very near future.  Stay cool, y’all.

Well, since I’m traveling with my darling family – Great American Road Trip, Y’all – I am currently luxuriating in the peace and solitude of a very comfortable hotel room while Hubs is entertaining the kiddoes.  (Yay HIM!)  So, in this quiet time, Wimbledon on the telly, coffee in hand (sadly, no strawberries and cream), let’s look around together and find out what’s going on in the world of wedding, yes?  But let’s start with what we’ve been up to this week.

On Monday, I featured a beautiful little cake that we spied recently at a Key West destination wedding – a Teal Blue Wedding Cake with Sea Shells.

Tuesday’s cake was a this breathtaking creation by British artist Janet Mohapi-Banks:  a White Feathers Wedding Cake.

I couldn’t resist this homage to the Beatles on Wednesday, with this Yellow Submarine Wedding Cake.

Cakes disguised as pastel boxes, wrapped up in ribbon, made this Satin Bows Wedding Cake a hit on Thursday.

For Cake Topper Friday, we just LOVED this Baseball Bride and Groom Cake Topper.  America’s Game!

We went all fancy For the Guys on Saturday, with this Faux Bois Groom’s Cake.  Go ahead.  Click on it.  Learn something new today. :-)

And now, let’s go poke around with our feet up and see what other Sweet and Pretty we can find!

Kara Buntin of A Cake to Remember in Richmond, Virginia, weighs in on a great reason to avoid fresh flowers on your wedding cake.  Evacuated kitchen, anyone?

Emmaline Bride discusses how to plan a wedding with Pinterest.

Thanks to Wedding Tidbits for this heads up:  grab the Martha Stewart Craft Studio iPad app for free right now. Hurry!  (It’s normally $4.99.)

This Oregon Barn Wedding, from Wedding Chicks, is stunning.  So is the delightfully homespun sweets table in lieu of a cake, is all kinds of darling, Darlin’.

Can’t get enough of the Oregon Barn wedding?  Me neither.  Check out this amazing paper flowers DIY, also from Wedding Chicks, using pattern tissue paper.

I adore this Pink Ombre Engagement Party, featured on Polka Dot Bride.  Make sure you check out the entire spread, but I especially loved the darling macarons.  I feature the cake above.

Have a Delicious Week, and a Safe Fourth!

Purple Ruffle Ombre Cake

Happy Mother’s Day!  And if you aren’t a mother, then feel free to wish me a Happy Mother’s Day!

I don’t know what today will hold – I’m heartily hoping for a little pampering, quiet, and possibly a nap – but I’m thankful for my babies, and I’m thankful that I still have my mom with me.  I also have a life filled with so many dear sweet women and girlfriends who have been mentors and confidantes.  So I’m glad to share this day with them as well.

The busy wedding season is Read More
