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.

Since we’re inching closer and closer to Christmas it seemed like a good time to feature a green wedding cake.

Today’s cake is a five-tier creation and it is elegant and gorgeous and it would be incredible at a black-tie reception.

While I’m not a huge fan of the color green, this cake grabbed my attention thanks to its unique hue. It’s more lime green than evergreen but the addition of the sugar hydrangeas makes it perfect. Read More

Naked Chocolate Wedding Cake

I have a confession to make – I love Oreo cookies.

Which is probably why I had to choose today’s wedding cake to showcase. It looks like a stack of Oreos. OK, well it looks like a stack of Oreos to me.

I’ll also confess that I’m not a huge fan of naked wedding cakes. I’m too much of a frosting fan to purposely eat a cake that lacks frosting.

However, this naked dark chocolate cake is really stunning because of its lack of frosting. The white icing peeking out between the tiers adds just the right amount of drama to this cake. Read More

Rustic Fall Wedding Cake

It’s November! There is no denying it now – we are celebrating all things fall!

For me, a fall-inspired wedding cake features dark hues with some pops of dark colors.

Take today’s cake for example.

I love the rustic vibe of this cake from the chocolate ganache icing that gives the cake a “woodsy” feel to the dark fruit and flowers used as accents. Read More
