Whimsical Wedding Cake

west end

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

Festive and Fun Wedding Cake Publix

Since it seems like Mother Nature finally has her act together and has allowed spring to stay for a while, what better way to celebrate a wedding than this stunner of a cake?  I feel all springy just looking at it.

Why do I love this cake? Let me count the ways. First, Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for September 23, 2012

Happy Fall, Y’all!  No, really!  This time, it really is fall!  As of yesterday.  And I’m so excited for all the fun stuff ahead, aren’t you?

It’s been a busy week around here, so I’m gonna get right to it with a round up of our own stuff.  Enjoy!

On Monday, we asked the very important question, Read More


Pastel Thai Inpired Wedding Cake

Thai Inspired Wedding Cake

Erica of  Erica O'Brien Cake Design takes us in a decidedly unexpected direction with today's Thai-inspired cake.

I have seen some really beautiful cakes that pull from Asian inspiration, but most of the time, they featured deep, bright colors. But with this cake, which was featured in a stylized shoot, we see beautiful Thai design elements approached with the light, deft touch of pastel.  And it works beautifully.  I absolutely love the stacked fondant Thai arches, and the way that Erica alternates a couple of gold layers into the mix.  And the sweet flower blossoms, as well as the gold-tinged peony, are breathtaking.  She even plays with Read More


Fondant Ice Cream Pop Cake

And so, it is upon us.  That time of year that Floridians hate the most.  While the rest of you are flaunting your about-to-dip-into-crispness temperature, we continue to swelter. And since making hay while the sun shines sounds incredibly boring, I’ll embrace my lot, Sunshine State Style – with a trip to the beach and an ice cream treat.

I’ve said it before:  Erica O’Brien is a cake goddess. Check out this simply, stunningly adorable Ice Cream Pop Cake that she came up with.  Her inspiration? Read More


Satin Bows Wedding Cake

Satin Bow Wedding Cake

I love me some classic…well, anything. And isn’t this pretty? I just want to grab my pencil skirt, cashmere cardigan, pearls, and kelly bag and go shopping with the girls. And then maybe to lunch. At Neiman Marcus.

Whew! Went a little too far into that 1950s movie fantasy right there.

But this cake will Read More


Rainbow Cake Ball Wedding Cake

Cake Ball Wedding Cake

We love Cake Wrecks.  If you want to laugh hysterically (and sometimes, it’s at people, and not with them), then be sure to check out this awesome website.

However, we’ve never linked to them, because, well, usually they’re highlighting all that is hysterically wrong with cake.  But then every so often, they show us beautiful cakes, and all is right with the world again.

I just fell in love with this rainbow cake ball wedding cake.  Cake balls (yes, we realize it’s kind of a funny term) – not to be confused with cake pops.  First, these are different sizes, and all are much bigger Read More


Cake Pop Wedding Cake

You know, we lurve cake around here in all its permutations…we’ve featured plenty of cupcakes, mini cakes, and cake pops right alongside beautiful and statuesque wedding cakes.

We do love the whole cake pop trend especially, however (tomorrow, my favorite will be cupcakes, or pie – pronounced /pah/ here in the South.  I’m fickle that way.)  But I digress.  Cake pops are darling and they are yummy, which makes them fabulous.

But how do you artfully display them, without reducing your swanky wedding reception to what Read More


Light Blue Wedding Cake

Blue hydrangea wedding cake

Sometimes all you need is a simple and classic wedding cake.  There is something about light blue and white that brings me inner peace.  That might be why every room in my house has a blue color scheme.

This cake makes me happy.  It’s a square cake with three tiers.  It’s covered in white fondant and adorned with a light blue ribbon around the middle.  The bottom and top tiers have beautiful white scroll work and the topper is a neat cluster Read More


M&M Wedding Cake


Insert.  Gasp.  Here.

This cake is layered with M&M’s.  You are probably wondering what kind of creative powerhouse came up with this bad boy?  Martha Stewart Weddings…that’s who.  I mean really…who else do you think would create this cake layered with chocolatey goodness covered in a hard candy shell?

This cake was featured in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings and has been making my Pinterest feed go nuts over the last few days.  This is a four tiered round cake slathered in buttercream and layered with rows and rows of perfectly spaced M&M’s…seriously…how do they do that?  I adore the soft pastel colors of pink, orange, and yellow because they just scream summer fun.  As you know, M&M’s can come in just about any color you can imagine (you can even get them personalized) so you can coordinate them to match your wedding colors.  I can see this cake covered in the oh-so-trendy dark purple, white, and gray or black, yellow, and gray.  Oh my, the possibilities are pretty much endless.

And most importantly…they melt in your mouth…not in your hand!
