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?
Sometimes all it takes to make a cake stunning is a simple design and some fresh flowers.
Take this cake for example – the icing is simple and the only embellishment is fresh flowers. That’s it.
And it doesn’t need anything else to make it look spectacular. Read More
Until recently I never would have considered chocolate frosting on a wedding cake.
Don’t get me wrong – I love chocolate – but I always thought wedding cakes “had to” be frosted with white icing of some kind whether it’s fondant or buttercream.
Well, I’m happy to report that I’ve changed my mind and if I had to do my wedding cake over, it would be all chocolate.
As today’s cake proves, a wedding cake with chocolate icing can be beautiful and elegant and downright stunning. Read More
I absolutely love roses on wedding cakes.
I’m not sure if it’s because I love roses or because there are so many colors and varieties and they all look stunning on a wedding cake.
But whatever the reason, if there is a cake with roses I’m going to swoon. Read More
It’s that time of year again – the store aisles are full of so many kinds of jelly beans, it’s hard to choose a favorite!
Personally I’m a fan of the “traditional” jelly beans (minus the licorice flavored beans). But I never thought about embellishing a wedding cake with jelly beans. Until now.
How fun is this “jelly bean wedding cake”? I don’t know about you, but I smiled as soon as I saw this cake.
It’s just so cute and fun and whimsical – three things that mean you can’t pass up this cake. Read More
I am going to go out on a limb here and say that spring really is here to stay as we inch closer to April.
With that in mind, I wanted to find a wedding cake that was all about nature and spring-like things. I think this “woodland” wedding cake is that cake.
Our friends at Hockleys Cakes created this one-of-a-kind wedding cake for a bride and groom who “love everything woodland.” I am in awe just looking at this cake and taking in all the incredible details.
The cake itself features three tiers – each a different flavor. I love wedding cakes that have a different flavor in each tier, so in my book this cake is already awesome. Read More
I always enjoying finding cakes that are whimsical and add an element of fun to the wedding reception.
This cake from our friends at Hockleys Cakes is just what I was looking for! It’s whimsical, fun, and even has a spring-like look and feel to it.
The four-tier cake was created for a bride and groom who were celebrating their big day at an old stately home, according to Michael Hockley. The couple wanted a “vintage fairgroud” feel to the reception and wanted their cake to fit the bill.
And so, the Helter Skelter cake was created. Read More
Bubbles are one of my favorite things.
They’re fun and whimsical and oh so bubbly! And you can’t help but smile when you think of bubbles. Even the word itself is funny. Say it with me – bubbles!
Which bring us to today’s wedding cake that is surrounded by bubbles.
The wedding cake itself is simple enough – iced with a lovely buttercream icing. But what makes it really incredible is the sea of bubbles that surround the bottom of the cake. It’s almost as though the cake is floating on the bubbles. Read More
Spring is in the air!
Yes, it’s true! The first day of spring is this tomorrow and therefore I’m focusing on all things pretty and floral and springy.
Just like this beautiful wedding cake adorned with balls of flowers.
This gorgeous contemporary wedding cake – called the ‘Marlborough’ – is another incredible creation from our friends at Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom.
I am in love with this cake. It’s so pretty and delicate and just downright gorgeous that I can’t imagine wanting to cut into it, no matter how delicious it is! Read More
It isn’t easy being green, especially when it comes to wedding cakes.
But since we’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day today, I wanted to find a cake that had a little bit o’ green in its design.
I think this cake with the green ribbons and cheery daisies is perfect. The green isn’t too overpowering, and the daisies are such a fun flower that you just feel happier looking at them. Read More
Since there are only a few weeks of winter left I decided we should feature one more winter themed dress before we go all spring-y.
And to that end, I present a white wedding cake with wintery snowdrop flowers that seem to be growing out of the tiers.
Whether you’re a fan of winter or not, you have to admit this is a rather spectacular cake.
It’s so pretty and elegant and it would be a stunning cake at any winter wedding. Read More
