Floral Wedding Cakes

 

What’s not to love about a floral wedding cake? The trend to decorate cakes with flowers, whether real or gum paste, really became all the rage during the 1980s, when Martha Stewart showed us all how wrong we’d been doing weddings up to that point. Gone suddenly were the little bride and groom figurines made of porcelain or plastic that stood proudly atop cakes. Replacing them were mounds and cascades and accents of flowers of all shapes, sizes, and hues. The trend may have died down to some extent; today, we’re as apt to see a bride and groom cake topper – or a pair of birds or bicycles, or anything else the couple might fancy – as flowers. But flowers have not lost favor completely. In fact, florists are still busy preparing floral toppers for cakes that match the bride’s color palette and bouquet. Likewise, bakers are kept busy crafting handmade, sugar or gum paste flowers, or at the very least, custom coloring store bought gum paste creations to offset their beautiful cakes. There are a couple of points to remember when choosing to trim your cake with fresh flowers. First, make sure that the bloom you’d like to use is NOT poisonous. Wouldn’t you hate to send people to the hospital because they ingested a piece of your cake that had ivy on it? And secondly, if at all possible, ask your florist for pesticide-free blooms. Bug killing chemicals = not tasty. And finally, if it’s gum or sugar paste flowers that you’re after, remind guests that, although they are technically edible, it’s probably not very tasty or a good idea. If you want edible decorations, you should probably stick with real or marzipan fruit.

Touch of Pink Wedding Cake

Touch of Pink Wedding cake

So confession time…I love pink! (Actually, I think I already confessed that. And is that confession-worthy? Whatevs.) The love affair started sometime during high school (I was way too much of a tomboy before that to be on board the pink train) and it has continued to this day. I may have a different staple color in my wardrobe this season and my room may no longer be the pink and brown it was in college, but I still adore all things pink.

When I spotted this cake, I fell in love. I love its dimensions and the layered look of the tiers. The burst of Read More

Feathers and Flowers Wedding Cake

Feathers and Flowers Cake

Feathers are not usually my cup of tea. I don’t really know why other than I’m just not too fond of them but I kind of love the way Bobbette and Belle incorporated them into the design of today’s cake!

People tend to fear having a simple all white cake because it may not be memorable or it may look boring to the guest (I vehemently disagree!)…but with a touch of floral and other accessories you can kick up your wedding cake to the level of unforgettable! Bobbette and Belle, based out of Toronto, have Read More

Nautical Mini Wedding Cakes

Nautical Mini Wedding Cakes

Adorable! That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw these Mini Wedding Cakes on Pinterest.

I have a slight obsession with miniature baked goods…I’m not sure if it makes me feel less guilty about eating something “unhealthy” or if I just like the idea of miniature things. Either way I love mini cakes, mini cupcakes, cake pops (they may not be miniature but they are small), and petit fours. And while most miniature goodies are not decorated elaborately today’s featured minis are incredible! The attention to detail is amazing…I mean look at the rope border on the tiers of the cake, the bronze anchor, the flowers, and the stripes! Can you imagine the time it took to perfect the details and make these look so good?

In my opinion these mini wedding cakes would be perfect for a dessert table or even as a wedding favor…but we want to know what you think about the whole mini cake idea?

If you love the nautical look of these mini cakes, check out this nautical wedding cake and this nautical cake topper we have featured!

Thanks, too, to our good friend Beth from Cakes by Beth for letting us know that these are the splendid work of The Caketress of Toronto!

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for May 27, 2012

Daisy Wedding Cake

Happy Unofficial Start to the Summer Season, Y’all!

Do you wish people a Happy Memorial Day?  I mean, it kinda seems like a contradiction in terms.  When I was growing, up, Memorial Day was less about partying, and more about remembering.  I guess I’m happy with a hybrid of both:  do a spot of remembering, and then go honor those we love and miss, and others that gave all for our freedom, by enjoying some of that freedom and leisure.  What I don’t get?  Those pesky home improvement commercials that seem to think Read More
