Simple Wedding Cakes
Sometimes simple says it best. You might choose a simple wedding cake because you prefer a minimalist approach, or because you like you like to stick with the basics when it comes to cake, or even because you are interested in showcasing a particularly fancy flower or cake topper, simple wedding cakes never go out of style. The basic, stacked, white wedding cake, frosted in a smooth coating of buttercream or covered in a snowy blanket of fondant, may hide beautiful flavors and colors beneath its exterior – the best of both worlds. Or maybe you and your groom prefer the traditional “white cake, white frosting” approach – or “chocolate cake, chocolate frosting” – after all, simple doesn’t necessarily mean traditional. On the other hand, a simple cake may be the perfect way to showcase a special caketopper or flower that has personal meaning for you. A topper that shows your style or a hobby that you and future hubby share becomes all the more visible when it doesn’t need to compete with a fancy cake. Maybe you have a family heirloom that can nestle atop your cake. Alternatively, some dazzling orchids or floppy peonies may be all the statement that you need to make. A simple cake need not be boring, after all.
Spring is definitely in the air and that has me thinking about spring-inspired wedding cakes!
Take today’s cake – it’s delicate and elegant and even has a lovely fresh flower for some added beauty.
I love the delicate and romantic floral lace design on the cake. Read More
Growing up, pink was not my favorite color. But now, I will admit that I’m kind of partial to all things pink.
And I especially love the idea of having a pink wedding cake. My favorite hue – a light pink. Think, pastel.
It’s the perfect color for spring or early summer and it has a very happy vibe to it. Read More
Can you feel it? We’re getting SO close to the first day of spring! I want to celebrate with all kinds of fresh flowers!
Specifically, let’s celebrate with today’s gorgeous “naked” wedding cake topped with a huge bouquet of fresh flowers.
How lovely is this cake?
The single-tier vanilla cake with white icing is rather nondescript on its own. In fact without the flowers it would be kind of boring. Read More
We’re just a couple weeks away from the official start of spring so of course we’re thinking about all the lovely spring flowers that will soon be blooming!
Today’s cake reminds us of all things spring thanks to the lovely painted flowers on the middle tier and the use of sugar flowers.
This three-tier cake is stunning – the combination of blue and white on a wedding cake is a favorite here at A Wedding Cake Blog. Read More
We’re huge fans of chocolate cake here at A Wedding Cake Blog. We looove chocolate cake and we also love the idea of a chocolate wedding cake.
It’s so fun and somewhat non-traditional to serve a chocolate wedding cake. (We’re talking all chocolate, not just a tier or two).
And this nearly-naked chocolate cake with a rustic vibe is a perfect cake for your early spring wedding. Read More
Happy day after Valentine’s Day! Since we’re all about celebrating all things loves, we’re still celebrating today.

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!
Since we’re all about celebrating love here at A Wedding Cake Blog, it seems like a perfect day to feature a red and white cake in honor of Valentine’s Day.
This pretty cake features three tiers adorned with stark white icing, accented with red and white ribbon. I love the use of the ribbon to separate the tiers on this cake! Read More
If there’s one fruit that makes me think of all things summer it is the strawberry.
It could be the dead of winter (like right now) and if I buy strawberries at the store I feel a little more hopeful about warm weather that is coming down the pike.
Which brings me to today’s wedding cake. This lovely, simple one-tier cake adorned with strawberries. Read More
I love roses. They’re one of my favorite blooms, especially when it comes to wedding flowers.
In fact, my wedding bouquet was made of roses and I used roses on my 8-tier wedding cake.
Today’s cake is a bit more simple – with just one tier – and much more rustic than my over-the-top early-2000’s cake. Read More
If there’s one color I love to see on a wedding cake it is blue – specifically a light blue that was made famous by a particular jewelry company.
Today’s featured cake is that lovely shade of blue and the addition of a lace overlay piped onto the cake takes it to the next level for sure.
This cake is elegant and classic and it could also fill the role of “something blue” at the wedding. Read More
