red wedding cakes
Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!
Since we’re all about celebrating love here at A Wedding Cake Blog, it seems like a perfect day to feature a red and white cake in honor of Valentine’s Day.
This pretty cake features three tiers adorned with stark white icing, accented with red and white ribbon. I love the use of the ribbon to separate the tiers on this cake! Read More
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been glued to the television every night watching Team USA at the 2016 Olympic Games.
So that got me thinking about red, white, and blue wedding cakes – of course! – so my mission today was to find a patriotic-themed cake in honor of Team USA.
I think this cake fits that bill! Read More
Red and white is one of my favorite color combinations. There is such a stark contrast between the two colors, I just can’t get enough of red and white.

If I had to choose just one cake flavor to eat for the rest of my life – the horror! – it would be red velvet.

I adore the simplicity of the this cake. And it's really no shock that it's simple, since it's featured on Real Simple Magazine's website! Plain white fondant on tall tiers, trimmed with a border of thin red and white striped ribbon. The cake's only Read More
My name is Brooke, and I love cake pops. (Hi Brooke.)
Omistars…I feel certain that cake pops were some kind of happy accident, or were the obvious invention of thrifty cake bakers who couldn't imagine throwing out all those cake scraps (we used to make rumballs out of all those yummy leftovers.) Dress them up, put them on a stick, and you have the perfect two bite dessert!
This is one of my all-time favorite cakes that I’ve featured. Why am I providing you with a re-run today, you ask? A couple of reasons:
1. A cake loved should be shared more than once.
2. We will never forget.
