Yellow Ruffled Ribbon Square Wedding Cake

Have you noticed how hot ruffles are right now?

I mean, they’ve been hot on our blouses and peep toes (and flip flops) for a while, but in the last year, we’ve seen an abundance (some of my cake artist friends might plead an over abundance) of ruffles on wedding cakes.  From buttercream to fondant, I’d say that ruffles have been one of the hottest wedding cake trends of 2012.  So when you see a LOT of something, it’s always fun to see it applied in a new way.

Enter this lovely cake.

Well, where ever and whatever you are up to, I hope you can spare a couple of minutes to put your feet up and look at some lovely, fluffy stuff with us!  Let’s get started with a peek at what we were up to this week on A Wedding Cake Blog!

Plumeria and Ruffles Wedding Cake

Plumeria and Ruffles Wedding Cake

This one…is for my mom. Happy Belated Mothers’ Day, Mom! Here’s your wedding cake!

My mom took the trip of a life time a few years back with one of her best chums and my grandmother – to Hawaii, some place Mom and MaMa (remember, I’m from West Virginia, y’all) had always wanted to go. They came back absolutely in LOVE with Read More


Pink and Orange Buttercream Ruffle Peony Cake

Pink and Orange Peony Cake

Are you there yet?  Are you in that absent-minded, don’t-bother-me-with-real-life-details-like-laundry-and-oil-changes that spring incites?  I can think of nothing but glorious days, warm breezes, picnics, and playing outside.  I want to wear flowy dresses made from lots of linen, drink lemonade and crisp white wine, and gather floppy flowers.

And here is the perfect cake to epitomize that vibe.

Nine days out of ten, you’ll find me buttoned up and starched, tailored and just so, and I love cakes that reflect that personality, too.  Crisp edges, architectural and symmetrical features, like Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for January 15, 2011


Hola, Friends!

What finds you this January day?  I’m in a cold, albeit sunny, locale, wondering if I’m ever going to get around to making New Year’s Resolutions, while the rest of the world is busy breaking them.  What about you?  How are yours going?

Well, if fitness is any part of your 2012 goals, hopefully I can inspire you to a little bit of moderation in that eating plan, for we are SURE to find some deliciousness as we look around for what’s happening this week.  But let’s look at a little News first:

Last week, Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for January 8, 2012

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


White Ruffle Cake

White Ruffle Cake

We’re apparently in good company when it comes to ruffle love!

You saw our terrific Ruffle Week 2011 last month, yes?  With cascading ruffles, ombre ruffles, and even white chocolate ruffles.  Sigh. We’re still kind of pretty-drunk from it all.

But lo and behold, MORE ruffles poured in!  Tasha Nagy from Kick Ass Cakes in Fraser Valley, British Columbia sent me this sweet and pretty cake because she knows we are OBSESSED!  Seriously!  Ruffles!  Pearls! Flowers!  All White!  It’s like Tasha made Read More

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

I hope this finds you happy, healthy, and counting your blessings, this Sunday before Thanksgiving.  And whether you are going Over the River and Through the Woods, or gathering at a friend’s hip apartment with friends, my wish is that you find something to be truly grateful for this holiday season – love, laughter, plenty to eat, and so on and so forth.

But enough lecturing 😉 . We’ve found some lovely things around the interwebs this week, and we thought you’d like to see them, too.  So without 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


Cascading Ruffle Cake


True fact.  Ruffles do not have to take over your cake.  They can cascade down it like some gorgeous waterfall.  Just like this one.

This cake is a three tiered cake covered in flawless white fondant.  I love how the ruffles just sort of fall down the side of the cake in various shades of pink.  I am not sure how but I almost want to wear this cake.  You know, like a shirt.  In fact I think I may own a Read More
