Real Life Objects Cakes
The sky is the limit when it comes to cake sculpture. If you can describe it, or produce a photograph of it, then chances are your talented baker can turn it into cake. More and more, we are seeing real life objects cakes, or sculpted cakes as they are sometimes called, served in tandem with a traditional wedding cake. Normally, the sculpted cake is the groom’s cake, and can be fashioned into any number of objects: a beer bottle, a football helmet, a movie theatre. Gun case with a semi-automatic nestled in the foam-made-of-cake? No problem. Crab cake that looks like a crab? Easy peasy. Caffeine addict you’re baking for? Well then, why not a giant coffee cup? Sand castle? Child’s play. If you can dream it, it’s likely that your baker can do it. So free your mind. And your cake will follow.
This cake is so simple, yet so beautiful. Smooth frosting accented with bright butterflies flying up to a birds’ nest. The natural feel of the cake extends to the “cake stand,” a wood round that was harvested by the groom and his father!
The cake was inspired by Martha Stewart’s butterfly wedding cake, and is Read More
Dreary, dreary, dreary. As we cross over that period of winter when we think we’re never going to have warm weather again, and into the hope that surely, spring is just around the corner, we at AWCB can’t think of anything that cheers us up better or faster than a towering confection of sugary love and Read More
True story..you can make a cake look like ANYTHING. Including a lighthouse..with a slide coming out of the top and little tiny fondant members of the wedding party sliding down. I seriously scrolled through the Flickr album hoping that I could get some sort of clue HOW this wedding cake came Read More
After a long weekend filled with work, work and oh..more work I want to start this week off right. With a little quote of inspiration from one Holly Golightly.
“Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s, then – then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name!”
I have to agree. There is something about Tiffany’s and their signature Robin’s Read More

Another themed cake we couldn’t resist! This wine barrel cake showcases a rustic flavor with marbled fondant replicating the look of wooden panels!
The adorable grapes and big, splashy flowers give this cake a fun, frivolous feeling while sticking to the theme. We love the color on the grapes — that deep Read More
I couldn’t resist the daisy flower waterfall on this simple, square cake. The rest of the piping is gorgeous and I love the ribbon surrounding the tiers, but it’s those gorgeous flowers flowing down the side that really make this one for me.
Of course, the monkey Read More
