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?

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
