I love cupcakes. And if given the chance I’d serve cupcakes at every celebration I host, including a wedding reception.
Sadly, when I was married all those years ago the wedding cupcake trend hadn’t happened yet.
But now that cupcakes are all the rage, it is the perfect time to add some cupcake fun to your reception dessert table!
I love the idea in today’s featured cake photo – a small wedding cake (for the newlyweds) and cupcakes for all the guests. You could have so much fun with this concept – think of the flavors you could have with those cupcakes!
You could choose seasonal flavors, classics like white and chocolate, and even fan favorites like red velvet (my all-time favorite cake flavor).
And to add even more deliciousness to the party, make sure you have cute take-home boxes and enough cupcakes for you guests to take one for the road.
You’ll find this cupcake and cake tower here.
Recently, I’ve become obsessed with drinking hot tea at night. I bought a small tea pot, several kinds of tea, and every night I make myself a steaming cuppa tea with milk.
Perhaps this is why I’m loving today’s wedding favor idea – a heart-shaped tea infuser.
This favor would be perfect in a welcome bag for out-of-town guests, paired with some good local tea (or even your favorite flavor of tea). Read More
Fall is definitely here and that means it is a perfect time to check out some rustic wedding cakes!
I love the idea of a cake that represents the season of your nuptials and rustic seems to go hand-in-hand with everything fall!
Today’s cake happens to be a naked wedding cake – a trend I’m starting to love more and more – and it has a special touch thanks to some jam filling. Read More
I love everything about fall – even the fact that, where I live fall means you pull out all the summer flowers. This is OK with me because I just replace them with colorful mums!
I love the dark hues of some of the mums and other fall-ish blooms that are perfect for this time of year.
And I also love seeing floral wedding cakes deep in the falls season. Just because the temps are cooler and the leaves are turning doesn’t mean you can’t add some colorful blooms to your wedding cake! Read More
Of the best things about fall is the annual visit to the local pumpkin farm. We get to pick our own pumpkins out in the fields and then it’s time to buy pumpkin doughnuts.
There’s no denying that the pumpkins are the stars of the season.
And so, if you’re planning a fall wedding it only makes sense to add some pumpkins to your decor or even to the dessert table. Read More
If I had the chance to do my wedding cake over, I’m pretty sure there would be chocolate involved. As in, I’d have an all chocolate wedding cake.
I love the idea of bucking a trend – white wedding cakes – and serving something you really love. Like chocolate cake. Or at least cake with chocolate icing. Read More
I have a confession to make. I love palm trees.
Where I live (in the midwest) there are no palm trees. So as soon as I see my first palm tree in Florida it is a happy day!
There’s just something so happy about palm trees blowing in the breeze.
And if you want to give your guests a little bit of happiness to take home, you should think about mini palm plants as a wedding favor! Read More
I have been craving chocolate lately.
I blame the displays of Halloween candy in the stores and the fact that I’m trying to avoid sweets.
So, to curb my cravings I’ve been looking at chocolate wedding cakes. And today’s featured cake looks delicious!
This naked chocolate cake is the perfect “undressed” cake for a fall wedding thanks to the espresso frosting and the fresh berries and figs that adorn the cake. Read More
I love this time of year – the leaves are changing colors, the nights are cooler, and everything is about fall!
So if you’re getting married during this season, why not choose a wedding cake the plays on the themes of the season without being too over-the-top?
Today’s featured cake is one of those perfectly fall cakes. Read More
