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 thing I wish I could do over from my wedding so many years ago it would be to include chocolate in my wedding cake.
Back in the day it was all about the white wedding cake – sure the flavors under the icing could vary, but standard white icing was all the rage.
But now I love the idea of serving a chocolate cake with chocolate icing because your guests will never expect it! Read More
We’ve featured a lot of very bright and vibrant wedding cakes on this blog, but sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics.
And today that means an all-white wedding cake creation.
This all-white cake would work in all seasons and with any color scheme making it versatile and very elegant.

Sure the calendar says it is only the middle of August but we all know that fall is right around the corner. However, I’m still clinging to summer with all my might, which means we’re still going to talk about summer wedding cakes.
Just like today’s beautiful pink and white creation.
This gorgeous three-tiered cake features light pink and white icing with a ruffle design that really pops. Read More
I love cheese.
I’m talking I could eat cheese at every meal if given the opportunity. Which is probably why I would love to be invited to a wedding reception where the cake was made entirely of cheese.
Just like today’s wedding cheese cake.
This stunning cake was created using five wheels of cheese and it would be the perfect “cake” for a reception where there was also a dessert buffet. Read More
I like finding wedding cakes that are unique – something you aren’t going to see at every other wedding.
Today’s cake is that kind of cake. It’s not every day that you see a wedding cake adorned with tiny gold bows, and that makes me love it even more.
This three-tier cake is perfect for an elegant reception with a small guest list. Read More
So we all know that April showers bring May flowers, but around here it’s also true for June and July showers. All the summer blooms look so pretty right now!
Which brings me to today’s cake. I’m loving the tiny orange flowers on this cake.
But I think what really makes the cake POP are the bright yellow sugar swirls. Read More
If there’s one thing your wedding day is guaranteed to be full of it’s love. Lots and lots of love.

It’s that time of year again – time for fresh berries!
OK, maybe it’s just that time of year again in the midwest which means around here it’s all about the strawberries. And raspberries. And blackberries.
Basically right now if it has fresh berries on it, we’re going to eat it.
Which is why I am so in LOVE with this naked wedding cake! Read More
Sometimes an out-of-the-ordinary wedding cake is just what you’re looking for.
This would be that cake.
I’m starting to become a fan of all things chalkboard – and I’m not sure if it’s because it reminds me of writing on the chalkboard when I was in school (yes, I’m that old!) or if it’s because I secretly like “shabby chic” things. Read More
Here in the midwest it’s officially strawberry season, which is rather exciting if you’re a fan of the bright red sweet and juicy berries.
Me? I prefer mine with a big bowl of whipped cream and sans shortcake, but if someone was to offer me a slice of wedding cake adorned with strawberries I’m pretty sure I won’t turn it down.
Especially if that strawberry wedding cake looked like this beauty! Read More
