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?
Despite the winter wonderland outside my window, I have decided it’s time to embrace all things spring in the hope that there’s a thaw on the way and we’ll see green grass again sometime soon.
As part of this ‘let’s think spring’ movement, I had to find a spring-y wedding cake to share today, and I think I found it!
This lovely light green cake is perfect for a spring wedding! Read More
It’s quite possible that this wedding cake is the most romantic cake I have ever seen.
Take a moment to look at this gorgeous creation.
Doesn’t it just take your breath away?
Before I saw today’s wedding cake I will admit that I never once thought about green as a wedding cake color.
But this cake – courtesy of Hockleys Cakes – has me singing a different tune!
I absolutely love this emerald green cake. It is so stunning and so unique and will leave other cakes “green” with envy!
And it isn’t just the green color of the cake that has me saying WOW – it’s that brooch. Seriously that is just downright incredible. And stunning. And it adds to the rich look and feel of the cake. Read More
Every February I flirt with the idea of picking pink as a favorite color.
Maybe I’m inspired by all of the hearts and flowers that abound at this time of year. Or maybe it’s because I secretly really like pink just a little bit more than I’m willing to admit.
Either way, I am loving this pink and peachy confection that I found!
As soon as I saw this cake, the line from Steel Magnolias ran through my head.
“Your colors are pink and pink.”
“My colors are blush and bashful.” Read More
Since it appears that Ol’ Man Winter isn’t going to let go any time soon, we’ve decided to just accept the fact that it’s winter and move on.
And today we’re moving on to this lovely wintery wedding cake.
It’s so pretty that you almost want to love snow again. Almost.
The small wedding cake it lovely on its own with the simple white fondant icing. But when they add the silver filigree piped on to create the scroll work, it takes it to a whole new level of gorgeous. Read More
In my quest to find a wedding cake that was both beautiful and brightly colored, I stumbled upon this lovely confection and just had to share it with you!
It reminds me of this rock candy wedding cake we featured a few years back but I think I like this yellow, sunny cake a little bit more, if only because the color reminds me of sunshine and spring and warm weather.
Admit it – you thought of sunshine as soon as you saw this cake, right? Read More
Nothing says “love” like a red, red rose.
We see proof of that each week on a certain very popular television show where seemingly reasonable adults go a little crazy at the prospect of getting THE rose.
Obviously the rose is a powerful flower.
So what better flower to use to accent your wedding cake than a dark red rose?
I absolutely love this cake and how the stark white icing is accented by the rose petals. Read More
As I continue to dream about warmer weather, today I’m sharing a strawberry wedding cake with you.
Of course we all know that strawberries are a summer fruit – if you’re from the northern half of the country, at least – but it’s never too early to start thinking about your summer wedding.
I love the whimsy and simple charm of this cake. It makes me happy just looking at it. Read More

With much of the country coming out of a very deep freeze, I think today is the perfect day to dream about a beach wedding.
And if you're planning a beach-themed wedding, you're going to need a cake that has a tropical vibe – just like this beautiful creation!
I love how this cake plays on the ocean theme with alternating layers of blue icing for the sea and sand colored icing. It really makes me want to head to a beach right this minute.
As pretty as this cake is, it's also beautifully simple and doesn't go too far in the decor department. Read More
