As we get out of the Christmas holiday season and head toward the next major holiday – Valentine’s Day – let’s talk about wedding cakes that ooze romance.
Like today’s cake.
This three-tiered cake is delicate and pretty and romantic, thanks to the color palette and the addition of some gorgeous roses. Read More
Spring is my favorite season thanks to all the lovely flowers that are blooming right now!
They’re a welcome sight after several months of cold winter weather.
Today’s wedding cake is the perfect springtime wedding cake thanks to the abundance of lovely pink roses.
I love the elegance of this cake too. Read More
Everything is coming up roses!
OK, there aren’t any real roses blooming around here yet, but I’m a total pushover when it comes to roses. They’re easily my favorite flower – for weddings, for Valentine’s Day, just because.
Hand me a rose and I’m a pile of mush.
Give me a wedding cake topped with roses – real or not – and I’m an instant fan.
And this cake is gorgeous. It’s almost beyond gorgeous – if there was a word for that. Read More
As I walked a very long trail at the park today I was surrounded by thousands of blooming trees, plants, flowers, and probably some weeds too.
It’s been sunny and a little warm and combined with the rain earlier in the week everything is blooming!
Sure this means a lot of pollen but it also means I’m dreaming about wedding cakes with gorgeous flowers. Yes, I do dream about wedding cakes. Don’t you? Read More
There’s something to be said for an elegant, one-tier wedding cake.
With a smaller cake there’s no muss, no fuss but the cake can still steal the show.
While I’m a fan of big, elegant and fancy wedding cakes I also like the smaller cakes.
Whether you’re hosting a small, intimate reception and you don’t need a big cake, or you’re planning on serving other desserts (cupcakes, a dessert bar, or maybe a cheese wedding cake) – a one-tier cake can be perfect for so many reasons. Read More
I’ve been writing a lot about the use of fresh flowers on wedding cakes and how much I love the trend.
Heck I even used fresh Black Magic Roses and greenery on my own wedding cake more than a decade ago.
Fresh flowers just never go out of style (in my humble opinion).
But, instead of using the whole flower, consider for a moment using just the petals from those fresh flowers – just like this cake. Read More
It’s been a while since we featured a wedding cake from Disney’s Fairytale Weddings and Honeymoons, so when I saw this cake I just had to share it!
My favorite aspect of this cake – the purple flowers. Sure there are also some pastel pink flowers in there but I am in love with the lilac roses!
I love wedding cakes with fresh flowers and when those flowers are roses I love it more. But when they’re purple (and pink) roses? It’s all over. I think this could be my new favorite wedding cake. Read More
Roses are one of my favorite flowers to choose when you want to add fresh flowers on a wedding cake.
There are so many colors and varieties of roses which means you can use them year-round no matter the season.
If you’re planning a fall wedding you can think about using deep hued roses like Black Magic roses or even some lighter reds and orange colored roses like the ones used on this cake. Read More
Sometimes all you need to make a statement is a simple yet elegant wedding cake.
This is that cake.
The three tier cake features elegant buttercream icing that almost resembles pleats in a wedding dress. And the only embellishment the cake needs is a brightly colored fresh flower.
This version of the cake features a lovely red rose, but if roses aren’t your favorite it would look stunning with other big and bright flowers. Read More
