White Winter Wedding Cake

winter wedding cake

Baby it’s cold outside!

So why not pick a cake for your winter wedding that reminds your guests of a warm – and very stylish – sweater?

OK, that doesn’t sound very intriguing does it? But just look at this beautiful all-white wedding cake and tell me it’s not stunning!

Aside from the whole all-white-cake vibe going on, just look at the design on this cake. It reminds me of one of those very cozy winter ski sweaters that are all the rage during the winter. Read More


Silver Wedding Cake with Crystal Snowflake Topper

snowflake cake

Since it appears that Ol’ Man Winter isn’t going to let go any time soon, we’ve decided to just accept the fact that it’s winter and move on.

And today we’re moving on to this lovely wintery wedding cake.

It’s so pretty that you almost want to love snow again. Almost.

The small wedding cake it lovely on its own with the simple white fondant icing. But when they add the silver filigree piped on to create the scroll work, it takes it to a whole new level of gorgeous. Read More


Snowflake Wedding Cake


I have begrudgingly accepted the fact that it's not going to get warm anytime soon and snow is very, very likely here in the Midwest.

And so, I decided to share a cake that evokes that wintry feeling – the snowflake wedding cake.

You have to admit, even if you aren't a fan of snow this is a beautiful cake.

It's a six-tier stunner frosted with Swiss meringue that really looks like snow. And the royal icing snowflakes grow in size from top to bottom, giving the effect of falling snow. Read More


Recipe and DIY: Southern Living 2012 White Christmas Cake

Southern Living White Cake 1

It will come as no surprise to regular readers of A Wedding Cake Blog that I am an avid Southern Living magazine fan.

The world stops once a month when an issue comes. I peruse every feature, and file away recipes for that week's menu or upcoming party, and I dream — and sometimes use — the travel advice on the pages.

So I look forward every year to the December issue, and what has come to be known as “the big white cake” on the cover.

This year's big white cake is beautiful in its simplicity, and I applaud the powers that be who chose it, because it's the perfect all purpose white cake.  Perfect for birthdays, perfect for weddings.

We've gotten so fancy, haven't we?  And there's nothing wrong with fancy.  But every good cook should have a very basic, completely perfect cake in their repertoire, and this is a good candidate for that job.

The cake — Mrs. Billett's White Cake — is done up in lovely, minimalist fashion with white buttercream and fondant snowflakes.  I was excited to share this with you because it would make a sensational winter wedding cake, and the fondant snowflakes are easy AND spectacular (which just happens to be the perfect combo IMO.)

Find the recipe here.  Find the fondant snowflake DIY here (this one's a video.)

Ah, Southern Living.  I love how fabulous you continue to be.

Crystal and Pink White Snowflake Cake

Crystal and Pink Snowflake Cake

I know that my friends and family in other parts of the country are rrrreeeealllyy super hoping that winter spread its last hurrah recently, when the Facebook posts about falling snow were coming thick and furious.  So to bid adieu (hopefully) to the white stuff, here’s a reminder of all that is enchanting and sparkly about it.

There’s just something about a snowflake cake!

When I saw this gorgeousness from Rachael Teufel and Company at Intricate Icings, I knew I had to feature it.  The cake was the perfect centerpiece for a breathtaking New Year’s Eve wedding in Colorado.  And those aren’t Read More


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

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


Snowflake Cake

We loves us some Kara Buntin of A Cake to Remember around here.  Yes.  We do.  So, is it any surprise that I choose to wave goodbye to 2011 with one of her cakes?  Probably not.

I am a firm believer in the Twelve Days of Christmas, y’all.  In our home, Christmas isn’t over until the Wise Men have come and gone on January 6 (that’s the Epiphany, by the way, in case you are wondering what in the world I’m talking about.)  Only then does the tree come down, and all the pretty decorations are tucked lovingly away til next December.

But, even I realize Read More

Winter Wonderland Wedding Cake


Early this week I featured this Holly Cake from The Pink Cake Box and I promised there would be more treats from The Pink Cake Box during CCW11!

I told you about a dream I had once.  For a winter wedding that included a white horse drawn carriage, (faux) fur muffs and shaw, and white gloves up to my elbows.  The problem with this dream December wedding?  South Carolina can be a little persnickety with the whole winter weather situation.  Like today.  It’s 76 degrees.  Last Christmas it snowed.

Anyway, had I gotten to make my winter wonderland dream a reality, this Read More


Winter Themed Cake


Okay, here are two things that I am painfully aware of.

1. It is not in any way shape or form winter.

2. I know that this cake is not exactly a wedding cake..but a Nutcracker-themed cake made in celebration of a production of The Nutcracker.

Yet, here I sit, ready to get my Nutcracker on in the middle of September.  Oh well.  Because I adore this-six tiered creation that pays homage to all things Snowflake, Gum Drop, Sugar Plum and oh yes, I believe those are little tiny purple mice.  True story, I was in The Nutcracker in the fourth Read More
