square wedding cakes
It sure feels like fall today so that got me thinking about all things fall, like trips to the apple orchard. And baskets full of apples.
Which brings me to today’s wedding cake inspired by baskets.
I really like this five-tier cake for several reasons, including the fact that the icing color is rather non-traditional. It isn’t often that you see a mocha-hued wedding cake. Read More
Things are still all a bloom around here thanks to a nice combination of April showers and warm, sunny days.
Which means I’m still looking for wedding cakes adorned with fresh flowers because they’re absolutely perfect for spring weddings.
This four-tier square wedding cake is elegant and simple and has a fresh feel about it.
The square tiers give the cake a modern feel, while the pearl icing embellishments add just the right amount of elegance.
And you can’t go wrong with fresh cattleyas for a floral addition.
Of course if you aren’t a fan of that flower you can always adorn your cake with a flower that matches your bouquet – giving your wedding cake an extra personal touch.
You can find this spring floral wedding cake here.
I’ve recently decided that I need to eat more fruit and fresh berries are currently on the top of my list of must-have snacks.
So, when I saw today’s wedding cake I just knew I had to share it with you because it looks delicious and it would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding.
This two-tier blackberry wedding cake is absolutely stunning thanks to the blackberries surrounding each tier. Read More
It’s the first day of April and spring is in the air and that’s no joke!
As I look outside I’m spying buds on the trees and tulips popping out of the ground and I’m convinced that the warmer weather is here to stay.
Which means I just had to find a gorgeous wedding cake today with springtime flowers!
This cake is that perfect springtime confection. Read More
If there is one fruit that symbolizes fall it’s the apple.
Living in the Midwest, no fall season is complete without a visit to the apple orchard where you buy a bushel of apples, some apple cider, and maybe an apple pie or two.
And so when I found this wedding cake that uses apples as a decoration I just had to share it!
This is the perfect fall cake with the apples, figs, dark berries, and succulents as the only decorations. Read More
Do you remember those candy dots you used to eat as a kid?
You know, the ones that were stuck to strips of paper so you inevitably ended up eating paper AND candy?
How cool would those be on a wedding cake (minus the paper, of course)? Pretty cool if you ask me.
So imagine how happy I was to find this very modern take on the candy dot wedding cake.
It’s bright and colorful and cheerful. And it will take your guests back to their childhood (assuming they’re old enough to remember candy dots). Read More
I’m a big fan of traditional wedding cakes – white frosting, flowers, cake topper.
But I’m also becoming a fan of the more non-traditional cakes we’ve been featuring here.
And every now and then I find an ultra modern wedding cake that knocks my socks off.
This is one of those cakes.
From the straight lines of the square tiers to the 3D illusion of the sugar paste rings, this cake has it going on! Read More
I am a huge fan of all things purple. I think the color is vibrant and cheerful and it’s also the color of royalty according to some sources, so it has that going for it.
But as much as I love purple I had not found many cakes featuring the color until now.
And I have to tell you, I’m loving this cake and its understated elegance.
The cake itself is simple and pretty with the square tiers (such a fan of this shape!) and smooth white icing. But the ribbon around each tier takes the cake to another level of beauty, adding to the clean lines of the design. Read More
As much as I love the trend of colorful cakes that are anything but traditional, sometimes I like to go back to the basics and find a lovely white wedding cake with minimal embellishments.
Today, that is this white wedding cake adorned with fresh orchids.
What I love most about this cake is the simplicity of the design. Read More
As we’re heading into the week of celebrating all things love and Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share a cake with you that was so romantic it would make you swoon on the spot.
I’m pretty sure this is the cake.
This gorgeous four-tier creation is from Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom and they call it the “Blenheim Cake.”
This cake is all about romance and flowers and love, and I adore everything about it.
I love the square tiers on this cake – I’m a big fan of non-traditional shapes when it comes to wedding cakes. (This should come as no surprise, since my wedding cake featured eight heart-shaped tiers!) I think the square tiers give it a nice, modern contemporary feel.
The gorgeous and simple white icing with the pearls around each tier give this cake a dramatic and modern look.
But what I love most is the cascade of flowers down the side of the cake. The bride wanted the flowers to replicate her bouquet – which is a genius idea in my book! Hockleys created these flowers with hand crafted white, pink, and violet sugar roses and other dainty buds.
It’s incredibly romantic, don’t you think?
A big thanks to Hockleys Cakes for sharing this creation with us!
