I love this time of early summer – a couple weeks after all the flowers have been planted, when they’re still bright and blooming.
My backyard looks like a flower shop with pots and containers full of pink and purple blooms.
Which brings me to today’s wedding cake – a lovely two-tier confection topped with fresh garden flowers. Read More
If there’s one thing I really love to see when it comes to wedding cakes it’s a cake that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

OK, I’ve been featuring a lot of naked wedding cakes lately – which is odd since I’m a frosting lover.
But today’s cake is THE naked cake of the season so far.
First, it’s chocolate! And second, there’s a cascade of chocolate glaze on top of the cake that takes it to another level entirely.
Oh. My. Chocolate. Read More

I made a trip to a local greenhouse over the weekend to purchase my summer flowers.
And while picking out my blooms, I spied the strawberry fields next door which got me thinking about that sweet summer fruit.
Around here, strawberries hit their peak in mid-June or so, which means I’ll have a chance to enjoy some very, very soon!
But for now I’ll have to be happy with today’s wedding cake – which is adorned with bright red strawberries! Read More

I’m a sucker for a bag full of miniature candy bars.
They’re pretty much the best thing ever – all my favorite chocolate bars but in bite size packages!
So how fun would it be to have a bowl of bite size sweets at every table at your reception? Um, it would be super fun!
These miniature candy bars – Hershey’s of course – would also make a great addition to a “candy bar” if you’re thinking about that as a cake alternative. Read More
Naked wedding cakes are one of those wedding cake trends that I’m not sure I can fully support.
I mean, c’mon. These cakes are seriously lacking in one very important ingredient – FROSTING! But, as the saying goes, it’s what in the inside that counts.
And if you’re going to go with a naked wedding cake for your reception just make sure it has a lot of icing inside. Then I’ll be OK with it. Read More
