Separated Tier Wedding Cakes


Separated tier wedding cakes refer to cakes that sit individually on their own stand, and are not necessarily above or below one another. In this way, the wedding cake takes on a “deconstructed” appearance. There may be several reasons to favor this approach when it comes to your wedding cake. First, it’s different. Eight out of ten weddings that guests attend will have a stacked or tiered cake, and the ninth will have cupcakes! Separating your tiers, either on individual cake stands or a special cake stand provided by the bakery, will make a statement and will set your reception apart. Another reason to consider separated cake tiers is the size of the individual cakes. Perhaps you’d like similarly sized layers in different flavors. The approach permits you to have different layers that can all be the same size. Or perhaps you would like to have different designs or colors for each cake, unified by a single design element. This approach would permit you to have different “cakes,” potentially for the same price as a stacked or tiered cake. If individuality is important to you, if you’d like your affair to be remembered for being “different,” consider the approach of the separated tier wedding cake.


Wedding Cake and Cupcakes

While wedding cupcakes are still a trend some brides really want to stick with tradition and have that wedding cake. But what if you could do both?

That’s right – let them eat cake AND cupcakes!

I love the idea of keeping the traditional wedding cake as part of the reception – it is easier to cut a slice of cake than it is to share a cupcake with your new spouse. Read More


Miniature Wedding Cakes

It’s no secret that I love cake. Especially wedding cake.

There’s just something extra special about wedding cake that makes it taste better than your average every day cake.

So how amazing would it be if you could serve your guests their own wedding cake?

I’m not talking about a slice of cake – I’m talking about miniature wedding cakes. One for every guest. Read More


Strawberry Wedding Cake

One of my favorite summertime fruits is the strawberry! They’re sweet and perfect and can be used in so many ways, even on a wedding cake!

I love strawberry shortcake and today’s naked wedding cake reminds of that sweet treat.

This wedding cake was created with pound cake (of course!) and layers of mascarpone cream and strawberries. I think it might be my new favorite spring or summer wedding cake. Read More


Cupcakes and a Wedding Cake

Cupcakes are still all the rage when it comes to wedding receptions and I’m OK with that, since I love a good cupcake (or two).

But serving cupcakes in place of a traditional wedding cake leaves one small problem – how are the bride and groom supposed to cut the cake? You can’t really cut a cupcake and have it be the same.

Which is why I love this cake-and-cupcake idea! You can have your cake (and cupcakes) and eat it too. Read More


White Wedding Cake with Pastel Flowers

It’s been a while since we featured a wedding cake from Disney’s Fairytale Weddings and Honeymoons, so when I saw this cake I just had to share it!

My favorite aspect of this cake – the purple flowers. Sure there are also some pastel pink flowers in there but I am in love with the lilac roses!

I love wedding cakes with fresh flowers and when those flowers are roses I love it more. But when they’re purple (and pink) roses? It’s all over. I think this could be my new favorite wedding cake. Read More


Square Wedding Cake with Fresh Fall Flowers

Just because there’s a chill in the air doesn’t mean you can’t have a wedding cake that features beautiful fresh flowers.

As I think back to my own wedding cake (12 years ago!) the one element I loved most – other than the heart-shaped tiers – was the use of fresh black magic roses on the cake. Read More


Vintage Wedding Cake

As we cling to the last days of summer I wanted to showcase this cake because it reminds of an old fashioned summer fair.

This gorgeous two-tier wedding cake was created by our friends at Hockleys Cakes and they described it as typical English afternoon tea cake.

I love the elegant simplicity of the cake. The smooth white icing accented on each tier with small pearls lends an air of sophistication to the cake. The tiers are separated by white columns. Read More


Bundt Wedding Cake

I’m always looking for great non-traditional wedding cakes – something out of the ordinary and unique.

I think today’s cake fits that description.

I give you the “bundt cake wedding cake.”

Now, when I think about bundt cakes I think about birthday cakes with chocolate glaze drizzled on the cake. I have never thought about a bundt wedding cake. Until now.

I love the simplicity of this cake – there’s no muss, no fuss. It just a two-tier bundt cake frosted with simple white icing drizzled down the sides. Read More


Pumpkin Carriage Wedding Cake


If there’s ever a day when you truly feel like a princess, it’s your wedding day.

So why not celebrate with a cake fit for a princess?

A cake exactly like this Pumpkin Carriage Cake from our friends at Hockley’s Cakes over in the United Kingdom.

I don’t know about you, but Cinderella is my favorite princess and this cake is perfect if you’re thinking about a wedding with that sort of theme or if you’re a fan of Disney princesses. Read More


Woodland Wedding Cake


I am going to go out on a limb here and say that spring really is here to stay as we inch closer to April.

With that in mind, I wanted to find a wedding cake that was all about nature and spring-like things. I think this “woodland” wedding cake is that cake.

Our friends at Hockleys Cakes created this one-of-a-kind wedding cake for a bride and groom who “love everything woodland.” I am in awe just looking at this cake and taking in all the incredible details.

The cake itself features three tiers – each a different flavor. I love wedding cakes that have a different flavor in each tier, so in my book this cake is already awesome. Read More
