The groundhog has spoken and we’re in for an early spring this year!
So it only seems appropriate to start dreaming about springtime wedding cakes covered in lovely, bright colored blooms.
I love fresh flowers on wedding cakes – it is the perfect way to make a statement with your cake without being too over-the-top. Read More
Sometimes the simplest wedding cakes are the ones that stop you in your tracks.
That just about sums up today’s wedding cake. It’s pretty. And simple. And elegant.
And it is adorned by one very lovely rose but it doesn’t need anything else.
I love wedding cakes with fresh flowers – and usually that means a lot of fresh flowers. 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 for a gorgeous wedding cake is a simple white cake topped with pretty flowers.
Like this cake.
It’s so simple and so pretty and I would love to see this at a summer wedding.
I love wedding cakes with fresh flowers – it’s such an easy and elegant way to add something special to your cake.
And you can personalize it by incorporating the flowers from your bouquet or what your bridesmaids are carrying. Read More
I love roses, which means this cake is quite possibly my favorite cake in a very long time.
This cake is another incredible creation by our friends at Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom and it’s gorgeous!
Called the ‘Aphrodite,’ the cake is a vision of pink and white roses.
The three-tier cake is covered in 180 chocolate roses in addition to pink sugar roses. And it’s all hand-crafted.
Not only is this cake a stunner, but…180 chocolate roses! That is a lot of chocolate. If you’re a chocolate fan this is definitely the cake for you.
I love the subtly of the white chocolate roses and the bright color pop from the pink sugar roses. It would be such a lovely cake at a spring or summer wedding, especially if you were incorporating roses into your floral theme.
Many thanks to our friends at Hockleys for sharing this creation with us.

There’s just something about the color yellow – it’s so bright and cheerful and instantly puts me in a good mood.
The same can be said for this wedding cake.
It’s bright and cheerful and very elegant.
Now, yellow might not be your first color choice when deciding on a wedding cake, but I have to ask “why not?” Read More
Everything is coming up roses (and violets, pansies, lavender, and cornflowers) with this stunning wedding cake!
I absolutely love this cake because it elegantly screams ‘spring!’ and because those are real flowers that have been crystallized with sugar.
The three-tier cake is frosted with buttercream icing that was piped on to resemble a basket weave – so the cake actually looks like baskets full of fresh flowers. Read More
Nothing says “love” like a red, red rose.
We see proof of that each week on a certain very popular television show where seemingly reasonable adults go a little crazy at the prospect of getting THE rose.
Obviously the rose is a powerful flower.
So what better flower to use to accent your wedding cake than a dark red rose?
I absolutely love this cake and how the stark white icing is accented by the rose petals. Read More
There’s just something about dark red roses that I love.
They’re dramatic. And beautiful. And they’re the perfect flower to represent all things love.
They’re also a perfect flower to adorn a lovely white wedding cake, adding both beauty and drama to the cake.
And when you add in some deep red orchids and green roses, you have an incredibly gorgeous cake. Read More
Fresh flowers are one of my favorite embellishments on a wedding cake.
I love the simplicity of using flowers or greens on a cake because there's no need to anything else to the cake. And, there are so many ways you (or your baker) can incorporate the flowers into the cake's design. Read More
