Circle Wedding Cakes
Think of a traditional wedding cake, and chances are, you will immediately envision a tiered white cake with round layers. Round, or circle, wedding cakes are the standard for tradition. Whether the layers are separated by columns, or rest one upon another, it is safe to say that the majority of tiered cakes favor layers that are round in shape. In recent years, bakers have added interest to the otherwise traditional (and sometimes unexciting) profile of a round cake by stacking layers that are very similar in size, or by varying the height of various layers. But regardless of the size and height, circle wedding cakes are here to stay. And what could be more appropriate to signify and celebrate unending love, than the circle?
If there’s one sweet treat that almost everyone loves it has to be s’mores.
The ooey, gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers – well, it’s heavenly.
So why wouldn’t you want your wedding cake to be a s’mores wedding cake? I can’t think of one reason.
This gorgeous wedding cake is that s’mores wedding cake we’ve all dreamed of and it looks delicious. Read More
As much as I love wedding cakes with color – especially fall colors – there is something to be said for all-white wedding cakes.
An all-white wedding cake can be stunning and elegant and just downright beautiful when done properly.

Roses are one of my favorite flowers to choose when you want to add fresh flowers on a wedding cake.
There are so many colors and varieties of roses which means you can use them year-round no matter the season.
If you’re planning a fall wedding you can think about using deep hued roses like Black Magic roses or even some lighter reds and orange colored roses like the ones used on this cake. Read More
The first day of fall is about a week away so it’s about time to start showcasing some gorgeous fall wedding cakes.
And while I’m not normally a fan of brown as a color, I do love brown wedding cakes. I think it’s because they look so dramatic and they really lend themselves to the fall season.
This dark brown wedding cake with white flowers is stunning.
The three-tier cake features a dark espresso colored icing accented with delicate white flowers and it is beautiful. Read More
As we cling to the last days of summer I wanted to showcase this cake because it reminds of an old fashioned summer fair.
This gorgeous two-tier wedding cake was created by our friends at Hockleys Cakes and they described it as typical English afternoon tea cake.
I love the elegant simplicity of the cake. The smooth white icing accented on each tier with small pearls lends an air of sophistication to the cake. The tiers are separated by white columns. Read More
There is something to be said for a lovely one-tier wedding cake.
While I’m a fan of big wedding cake with many tiers and embellishments, I also think there’s no reason to go overboard on cake if you’re planning a small, intimate wedding reception.
If that’s the kind of reception you’re planning then you’ll want the cake to match the small setting. And that’s when you go for the single tier wedding cake.
But small wedding cakes don’t have to be boring – in fact they should definitely stand out and make a statement.
Like this beautiful one-tier cake topped with colorful pom poms.
It’s pretty. And simple. And perfect for a small reception.The silver pine cone is a pretty touch and gives the cake a nice fall feel. And of course you could personalize the pom poms with your wedding colors.
We found this cake here.
I’m always looking for great non-traditional wedding cakes – something out of the ordinary and unique.
I think today’s cake fits that description.
I give you the “bundt cake wedding cake.”
Now, when I think about bundt cakes I think about birthday cakes with chocolate glaze drizzled on the cake. I have never thought about a bundt wedding cake. Until now.
I love the simplicity of this cake – there’s no muss, no fuss. It just a two-tier bundt cake frosted with simple white icing drizzled down the sides. Read More
With Labor Day just around the corner, we’re all trying to hold on to the last weeks of summer.
And while the heat and humidity outside might make you doubt fall’s return in a few weeks, the calendar says it’s coming. So it’s time to transition into thinking about fall weddings and pumpkins and rustic wedding cakes.
Which brings us to today’s cake.
I love the rustic simplicity of this cake and think it would be ideal for that late summer/early fall wedding. Read More
Now this is a fun wedding cake!
How often have you seen a wedding cake shaped like a barrel? Never, right?
Well now you can say that you’ve seen it all.
I absolutely love the charm and humor of this wedding cake from our friends at Hockleys Cakes over in the United Kingdom!
The story behind this cake is that the reception was held in a rustic, traditional English pub and the cake was created to reflect the venue. Now that’s a pub I’d like to visit! Read More
