Purple Rosette Wedding Cake

purple wedding 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

Orchid and Black Stencilled Square Wedding Cake

Orchid and Black Square Wedding Cake

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

Orange and Magenta Scroll Wedding Cake

orange and magenta wedding cake

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.

Purple and White Wedding Cake

Purple and White Wedding Cake

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.

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for February 26, 2012

Roses wedding cake

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

Monogrammed White Fondant Cake with Purple Ribbon

Purple Ribbon Wedding Cake with Monogram

My love of monograms is well documented, as is my love of white on white cakes.  And actually, come to think of it, so is my love of Renay Zamora and Sweet Face Cakes.

But I never tire of any of these elements, or of Renay and her beautiful work.

Renay tells me a lovely story about this cake.  She and the mother of the bride had a rather random connection.  They had served on their church’s worship team, but hadn’t seen each other in years; however, they recognized one another immediately when they met at Read More

Ruffle cake 2

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Yes, I know that technically, I’m a full week behind.  And I know that technically, today is the Epiphany, and the end of Christmas, and not the New Year.  But is anyone else having a hard time cranking up the old machine again, getting on the horse?  I blame Read More

Ombre Ruffle Cake

Ombre Ruffle Wedding Cake

We have to end Ruffle Week 2011 with a bang…I believe that is cake is the cake to do just that.

I’m not sure there is anything more “Fall 2011″ than Ombre & Ruffles.  When you combine them, wonderful, wonderful things happen.  Like this cake from Maggie Austin Cakes. (If you’d like to know about Maggie Austin Cakes – and trust me, you do – check out this week’s Round-Up for a terrific article about the artist.)

In case you have no idea what I am talking about, ombre is basically taking the same shades of one color and having the colors scale from light to dark.  We’ve talked about it a time or two here.  I have Read More

Purple and Gold Wedding Cake

purple

There is a small college in my town and their colors are purple and gold.  Every Saturday during football season I see cars and people covered head to toe in purple and gold.  This cake is for them…and anyone else who likes purple and gold.

I love, love, love the deep purple almost eggplant-y flowers.  A few years ago my best friend, who loves purple, was getting married and I desperately tried to convince her to let us wear eggplant-colored dresses.  This may have been selfish because I was going to be eight months pregnant at the time of her wedding and wanted a slimming color.  For some reason Read More
