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?
It’s the first day of April and spring is in the air and that’s no joke!
As I look outside I’m spying buds on the trees and tulips popping out of the ground and I’m convinced that the warmer weather is here to stay.
Which means I just had to find a gorgeous wedding cake today with springtime flowers!

There’s something to be said for a traditional white wedding cake.
While I do love the non-traditional, oddly shaped, bright colored cakes that I often feature here sometimes it is nice to just find a lovely white wedding cake.
This four tier cake is simple and elegant and practically perfect in every way. There’s nothing boring about it either. The tiers are are iced with traditional butter cream icing.
But instead of leaving them plain the icing is decorated with Swiss dots and diamonds that were piped onto the icing – giving it just the right amount of elegance and pop!
To add even more to the cake – without going overboard – fresh flowers are used to adorn the cake. This is a fun idea because you can use any flower you like. Smaller buds would be ideal for the cake but larger blooms would work for the cake topper.
And, a traditional white cake is perfect in any season.
You can find this cake here.
Despite the cooler-than-normal temperatures that won’t let go, it is officially spring! And that means fresh flowers are on my mind, especially when it comes to wedding cakes.
I love seeing wedding cakes with fresh flowers – they give the cake a nice pop of color while keeping things elegant and classy. Plus, it’s a good way to incorporate your bouquet flowers into the reception.
Now while you might not be carrying mums in your bouquet, I’m still a fan of this springy white wedding cake. Read More
