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’m a big fan of fresh flowers on wedding cakes.
My own wedding cake was adorned with bunches of Black Magic roses and those dark red blooms made the white cake really pop!
Today cake goes floral in a really big way!
The three tier cake is almost taken over by bright flowers, but oddly enough it works without being “too much.” Read More
I’m back with another lace-inspired wedding cake because I honestly just can’t get enough!
Today’s cake is one that I could stare at for hours, it’s so gorgeous.
The lace effect on this cake was painstakingly created by creating dozens of tiny sugar blossoms and then arranging them in a trail on the cake. Imagine the time it took – this cake is really too pretty to eat! Read More

Strangely enough (or maybe not so strangely considering my love for all things warm and tropical) I adore flamingos.
Yes, they’re odd looking – tall, pink birds – but they make me think of warm climates like Florida. Which makes me think about summer.
So it seems only fitting that I am in love with this summer-themed cake, made complete with the addition of adorable flamingos. Read More
Sometimes, less is better.
For example – when it is 95 degrees outside with 1 million percent humidity, it’s better to be in a bathing suit than a business suit. Less is better.
The same can be said of wedding cakes. When it’s hot and humid outside sometimes the last thing you want is a wedding cake with a whole bunch of icing. Read More

I love this time of early summer – a couple weeks after all the flowers have been planted, when they’re still bright and blooming.
My backyard looks like a flower shop with pots and containers full of pink and purple blooms.

I made a trip to a local greenhouse over the weekend to purchase my summer flowers.
And while picking out my blooms, I spied the strawberry fields next door which got me thinking about that sweet summer fruit.
Around here, strawberries hit their peak in mid-June or so, which means I’ll have a chance to enjoy some very, very soon!
But for now I’ll have to be happy with today’s wedding cake – which is adorned with bright red strawberries! Read More
