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.
It’s that time of year again – time for fresh berries!
OK, maybe it’s just that time of year again in the midwest which means around here it’s all about the strawberries. And raspberries. And blackberries.
Basically right now if it has fresh berries on it, we’re going to eat it.
Which is why I am so in LOVE with this naked wedding cake! Read More
Here in the midwest it’s officially strawberry season, which is rather exciting if you’re a fan of the bright red sweet and juicy berries.
Me? I prefer mine with a big bowl of whipped cream and sans shortcake, but if someone was to offer me a slice of wedding cake adorned with strawberries I’m pretty sure I won’t turn it down.
Especially if that strawberry wedding cake looked like this beauty! Read More
My favorite color is purple but oddly enough I didn’t use the color in my wedding.
Which might be why I love to see purple showcased in weddings whether we’re talking flowers, dresses, or even the wedding cake.
I love this cake not only because it’s purple but also because it is fun and whimsical and would be perfect for a late spring, early summer wedding. Read More
I have a confession to make. I don’t like the color peach. Or the color orange. Or any color that might be close to peach or orange.
But, I love this wedding cake – peach flowers and all.
Look at this cake! It’s so elegant and unique and gorgeous. And if I was getting married (again) I’d want this cake at my reception.
The three-tier cake would be gorgeous without the flowers too thanks to the smooth white icing and the black ribbons with diamond-like brooches. That combination is something I’ve never seen on a cake before and I love it. Read More
I have a serious sweet tooth and will admittedly eat just about any candy except for black licorice.
And so when I saw today’s wedding cake all decked out in different types of white candy I just had to share it with you!
We’ve showcased cakes here before that were embellished with jelly beans and other candies, but this all-white wedding cake is perfection. Read More
Sometimes the simplest wedding cakes are the ones that stop you in your tracks.
That just about sums up today’s wedding cake. It’s pretty. And simple. And elegant.
And it is adorned by one very lovely rose but it doesn’t need anything else.
I love wedding cakes with fresh flowers – and usually that means a lot of fresh flowers. Read More
Everything is coming up roses!
OK, there aren’t any real roses blooming around here yet, but I’m a total pushover when it comes to roses. They’re easily my favorite flower – for weddings, for Valentine’s Day, just because.
Hand me a rose and I’m a pile of mush.
Give me a wedding cake topped with roses – real or not – and I’m an instant fan.
And this cake is gorgeous. It’s almost beyond gorgeous – if there was a word for that. Read More
As I walked a very long trail at the park today I was surrounded by thousands of blooming trees, plants, flowers, and probably some weeds too.
It’s been sunny and a little warm and combined with the rain earlier in the week everything is blooming!
Sure this means a lot of pollen but it also means I’m dreaming about wedding cakes with gorgeous flowers. Yes, I do dream about wedding cakes. Don’t you? Read More
Things are still all a bloom around here thanks to a nice combination of April showers and warm, sunny days.
Which means I’m still looking for wedding cakes adorned with fresh flowers because they’re absolutely perfect for spring weddings.
This four-tier square wedding cake is elegant and simple and has a fresh feel about it.
The square tiers give the cake a modern feel, while the pearl icing embellishments add just the right amount of elegance.
And you can’t go wrong with fresh cattleyas for a floral addition.
Of course if you aren’t a fan of that flower you can always adorn your cake with a flower that matches your bouquet – giving your wedding cake an extra personal touch.
You can find this spring floral wedding cake here.
I’ve recently decided that I need to eat more fruit and fresh berries are currently on the top of my list of must-have snacks.
So, when I saw today’s wedding cake I just knew I had to share it with you because it looks delicious and it would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding.
This two-tier blackberry wedding cake is absolutely stunning thanks to the blackberries surrounding each tier. Read More
