purple wedding cakes
Purple is my absolute favorite color. It’s the color of royalty and it’s my birthstone.
And had I given it much thought, I would have added purple to my wedding color scheme all those years ago. Like, maybe by having a purple wedding cake.
Just like today’s featured cake.
This lovely, muted purple cake is stunning. Read More
My favorite color is purple but oddly enough I didn’t use the color in my wedding.
Which might be why I love to see purple showcased in weddings whether we’re talking flowers, dresses, or even the wedding cake.
I love this cake not only because it’s purple but also because it is fun and whimsical and would be perfect for a late spring, early summer wedding. Read More
I’ve recently decided that I need to eat more fruit and fresh berries are currently on the top of my list of must-have snacks.
So, when I saw today’s wedding cake I just knew I had to share it with you because it looks delicious and it would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding.
This two-tier blackberry wedding cake is absolutely stunning thanks to the blackberries surrounding each tier. Read More
As much as I love all things purple, one would think that I would feature more purple cakes around here. But truth be told, I don’t often find purple wedding cakes that wow me.
I love this cake. I love it a lot.
This three-tier wedding cake is elegant and beautiful and I’d love to see it at a winter wedding.
I absolutely love the simplicity of the smooth white icing combined with the ombre purple gumpaste ribbons on the side of each tier.
The color combination is modern and not at all fussy or over-the-top. The purple shades are delicate and not garish in any way.
You don’t even need to be a big fan of purple to love this cake. It’s just that perfect.
The pearls add that perfect amount of old-world glamour to the cake.
I just love this little cake! It's a study in contrasts and uniformity all at once. The smooth bottom layer and the flamboyant top one – brought together by a monochromatic color scheme. And while the bottom layer is a regular height, the top is exaggerated. And don't you love the color of the icing? Clearly, it's fruit-based, not food-coloring based…love LOVE!
I adore a tiny cake. It Read More
As much as I love a traditional wedding cake, I really dig when I run into something totally different that I haven’t seen before, anywhere. The other day, I ran across this example of just such a cake.
Kara Buntin of A Cake to Remember in Richmond, Virginia, has created some of my favorite cakes, to be sure. This orchid and black wedding cake just may join the ranks. I really appreciate the strong structure of the almost geometric black lines juxtaposed with the ultra feminine stencilling in a beautiful shade of orchid. That Kara chose to Read More
This wedding cake is like coffee! Isn’t it?
What do I mean? It’s an instant wake up!
I love it. Really really REALLY. Not only is it replete with the world’s happiest flower, the DAISY, but the perfect scrollwork in two of the poppiest of colors, bright orange and magenta, make me want to dance. Or twirl. Or hula hoop. Or maybe all of the above. It’s kinda like a really fun twist on the hot trend of ombre, don’t you think?
I have no idea who made this cake, sadly, so if you do, please, speak up and let us know. In the meantime, enjoy it. Enjoy it like you enjoy a good summer party in your prettiest dress.
Happy Easter, Sweet Readers o’ Mine! I really hope you are enjoying this GORGEOUS spring day as much as we are! We were up early to see what goodies awaited us in our Easter baskets, and then off to service and some fantastic family time! So if you are taking a break from the ham, or the lamb, or the Easter egg hunt, to come see what I’m up to today, I thank you very kindly!
It’s been a fun week here on A Wedding Cake Blog. We’ll start by sharing what we’ve been up to all week!
On Monday, we started the week with a BANG of gorgeous Read More
When I saw this cake, I knew I had to feature it.
We are not strangers to Intricate Icings – we love their work! It’s always so meticulous and, well, interesting. So often, I’ll spy a cake I love, and won’t be surprised that it’s the work of this awesome Colorado bakery.
This cake is no exception. I think two things drew it to me: first, the richness of the purple. To me, purple – or really, any deep, strong color – must be treated carefully when it comes to cake. One false move…one tint or shade the wrong way…and you have MESS on your hands. But the hue of this cake is just incredible! Rich, deep, vibrant. Perfect.
The second detail I love? The diamond piping, which is so meticulously executed. I love how the lines don’t always connect…how they are perfectly straight and even, as though they were snapped with a chalk line. How each cross is punctuated with alternating dragees and little flowers. And the white layers deserve a mention, too. Look closely: that’s not a damask-style stencil; those designs are piped. The steady hand that decorated this cake is extraordinary. And the whole thing is captured just so by Tyler Jones Photography.
Greetings, friends and fans of the lovely!
Something truly tragic happened this week. Yes. The silk string on my pearls frayed and now I am pearl-less until I get them fixed.
No, I’m serious.
So, in determining what to do about this predicament, I mean, what DOES a girl do? Have a strand for everyday of the week so that they don’t wear out? Where costume pearls or freshwater jobbies for everyday-around-the-house wear? Because I am totally serious when I say I wear them Read More
