The great spring thaw of 2015 is happening right now in the northern half of the country and we’re slowly starting to see hints of green(ish) grass under the melting snow!
Which got me thinking about springtime grass and flowers and everything starting to bloom. Which of course made me think about green wedding cakes with flowers. It’s how my brain works. Read More
I’m a huge fan of magnets (seriously, you should see my refrigerator!) and I also love vintage typewriters, so today’s fun wedding favor is a new personal favorite.
Love is the word of the day at a wedding – so why not send your guests home with a great wedding favor that they can display on their fridge or other magnetic surface? Read More
Yesterday was National Pancake Day which is a completely awesome holiday! I mean, who doesn’t love pancakes?
And to celebrate (a day late) I just had to find another pancake wedding cake to share with you.
I love the idea of a non-traditional wedding cake, especially if you’re hosting a smaller brunch reception (or even a breakfast reception). While I love wedding cake as much as the next person, not everyone wants to eat cake for brunch. Read More
It’s March! So that means spring MUST be just around the corner, right?
Well I’m convinced that the snow has to end soon so I’m showcasing spring wedding cakes today. And this all-white cake with cascading fresh flowers is perfect for a spring wedding!
The wedding cake itself is a classic and elegant three-tier white fondant cake. On its own, the cake would be pretty but boring. But when you add a splash of bright colors with fresh flowers it changes everything! Read More
If there’s one non-traditional wedding cake that I’ll always be a fan of it’s the chocolate wedding cake.
Everyone is expecting a cake with white icing, even if the cake inside is a variety of flavors. So why not wow your guests and surprise them with a chocolate frosted cake?
The cake flavors could vary – chocolate, marble, yellow – but to see a wedding cake frosted with gloriously delicious chocolate icing? That would be incredible! Read More
Since it seems as though winter is never going to end here in the Midwest, I find myself daydreaming about the beach nearly every day.
Which brings me to today’s cake.
This three-tier creation reminds me of my favorite beach – with white sand and beautiful blue water.
It’s quite lovely. Read More
Due to the never-ending winter here in the Midwest I have recently become a fan of hot tea.
There’s nothing quite as soothing as a cuppa steaming hot tea on a cold winter day.
And given this new-found love of tea I just had to share these incredible tea drop wedding favors I found! Read More
Since a good portion of the country is buried in white fluffy snow, it seemed appropriate to focus on an all-white wedding cake today.
Granted this cake is way prettier than any pile of snow – and it won’t make your toes cold either!
You know I’m a sucker for traditional all-white wedding cakes – call my old fashioned but I like traditional cakes. Sure a pop of color or a whimsical cake is good every now and then, but I like white cakes. Read More
OK so maybe you haven’t given much thought to a gray wedding cake – after all gray is usually synonymous with dreary things.
But it can actually be a stunning color on your cake when it’s done the right way.
This three-tier cake isn’t drab or depressing – the charcoal gray icing is dark and elegant and set off by colorful fruit, succulents, and gold leaves.
As much as I’m a fan of traditional wedding cakes when I see cakes that showcase ‘thinking outside the cake box’ design it’s exciting. And this charcoal gray cake is a new favorite. Read More
