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 love cupcakes. And if given the chance I’d serve cupcakes at every celebration I host, including a wedding reception.
Sadly, when I was married all those years ago the wedding cupcake trend hadn’t happened yet.
But now that cupcakes are all the rage, it is the perfect time to add some cupcake fun to your reception dessert table!
I love the idea in today’s featured cake photo – a small wedding cake (for the newlyweds) and cupcakes for all the guests. You could have so much fun with this concept – think of the flavors you could have with those cupcakes!
You could choose seasonal flavors, classics like white and chocolate, and even fan favorites like red velvet (my all-time favorite cake flavor).
And to add even more deliciousness to the party, make sure you have cute take-home boxes and enough cupcakes for you guests to take one for the road.
