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?
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.
And what better way to show off that love than with a wedding cake adorned with colorful little hearts? This cake practically screams LOVE! … but in a dignified manner of course. Read More
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
Having just returned from a week at the beach I’m still daydreaming about the sand and surf so I just had to share a beach-y wedding cake today!
And I’m loving the look of this modern beach-inspired cake.
Not only does the cake feature lovely seashells as embellishments, but will you look at those ‘waves’ on the icing?
It’s almost too pretty to eat.
Almost. Read More
My favorite color is purple but oddly enough I didn’t use the color in my wedding.
Which might be why I love to see purple showcased in weddings whether we’re talking flowers, dresses, or even the wedding cake.
I love this cake not only because it’s purple but also because it is fun and whimsical and would be perfect for a late spring, early summer wedding. Read More
As much as I love showcasing fancy, out-of-the-ordinary wedding cakes every week, sometimes it’s good to get back to basics and show off a classic wedding cake.
This mulit-tier wedding cake is classic in its design but basic it’s not.
The cake features elaborate piping and icing designs of swirls and swags and pearls and more. Read More
I have a confession to make. I don’t like the color peach. Or the color orange. Or any color that might be close to peach or orange.
But, I love this wedding cake – peach flowers and all.
Look at this cake! It’s so elegant and unique and gorgeous. And if I was getting married (again) I’d want this cake at my reception.
The three-tier cake would be gorgeous without the flowers too thanks to the smooth white icing and the black ribbons with diamond-like brooches. That combination is something I’ve never seen on a cake before and I love it. Read More
