If you’re looking for a non-traditional wedding cake – and you happen to enjoy celebrating Mardi Gras – this king cake is the perfect cake!
King cake is often associated with the Epiphany at the end of the Christmas season, but in New Orleans it’s associated with Mardi Gras (which happens to be right around the corner!) Read More
Now here’s something you don’t see every day. A wedding cake adorned with a rainbow of British stamps.
This cake is my new favorite cake.
First, I love stamps. As much as I love all things technology, there is something to be said for “snail mail.”
I used to write to my pen pal (who just happens to live in England!) every few weeks when we were younger. I had boxes of letters, all with lovely British stamps. Read More
I’m not sure how I feel about today’s featured wedding cake.
There’s almost too much going on for one cake. I love the light blue icing and the sprinkle layers. I also love the deep red ribbons between tiers.
But the red flowers with peppermint candy centers? Those are pretty too. But put together – it just seems so busy at first glance. Read More
It’s been a really long time since we’ve showcased a cake that could pass as a groom’s cake.
But today we have a perfect groom’s cake!
This naked chocolate stout cake would be the ideal cake for the groom. (Of course it would also work as a non-traditional wedding cake, but we really like the idea of a groom’s cake). Read More
Today is my most favorite holiday of the year – Halloween!
And if you’re lucky enough to choose October 31 as your wedding day (oh what fun!) the sky is pretty much the limit when it comes to adding some holiday fun to your reception.
I’ve seen brides host a costume-party themed reception or use Halloween decor as part of the reception. Read More
I adore polka dots. They’re fun and whimsical while still being classic and somewhat elegant.
And if those polka dots look like tiny hearts? Well, that’s even better.
Today’s wedding cake is a study in fun – a stark white, three-tier cake adorned with black fondant hearts instead of black polka dots!
It is nearly wedding cake perfection. Read More
It’s that time of year again – when I am finally over summer and just want it to be fall.
I need cooler temperatures, warm sweaters, and pumpkin spice everything. A chocolate cake would be nice too!
I love the idea of having a chocolate cake as your wedding cake. It’s so non-traditional – even if I keep seeing it mentioned on wedding websites. Read More
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been glued to the television every night watching Team USA at the 2016 Olympic Games.
So that got me thinking about red, white, and blue wedding cakes – of course! – so my mission today was to find a patriotic-themed cake in honor of Team USA.
I think this cake fits that bill! Read More
I am a huge fan of all things polka dot. There is something so fun and yet classy about those polka dots.
Plus, it’s fun to say (and type) polka dot. 😉
While my favorite polka dot combo is black and white, I am loving today’s wedding cake featuring red and white polka dots! Read More
