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.

Ocean-Inspired Wedding Cake

blue beach cake

I love the beach. Specifically I love how the color of the ocean can change throughout a day from dark blue to greenish-blue and back again.

This wedding cake reminds me of my favorite ocean color – that sea green-blue when the water is clear and you can see to the bottom.

The three-tier cake features square cakes adorned with simple white icing and seafoam green Necco candy wafers. Read More

Chocolate Strawberry Wedding Cake

chocloate strawberry cake

We’re still enjoy the fresh-from-the-farm strawberries around here, but the season is quickly coming to and end.

And so, I thought it would be a good idea to find a gorgeous wedding cake that incorporated that sweet and juicy summer fruit before everyone stopped thinking about strawberries.

The fact that I found a naked chocolate cake with strawberries is so perfect.

As much as I love frosting on cakes I’m a big fan of the naked wedding cake trend. Especially when the tiers are separated by a lot of icing. That almost makes up for the lack of all-over icing. Read More

Wedding Cake with Hearts

If there’s one thing your wedding day is guaranteed to be full of it’s love. Lots and lots of love.

And what better way to show off that love than with a wedding cake adorned with colorful little hearts? This cake practically screams LOVE! … but in a dignified manner of course. Read More

Beach Inspired Wedding Cake

beachy cake

It’s Shark Week this week on Discovery Channel. Which means I’m thinking about the beach and how it’s probably best to stay ON the beach and out of the water.

So, instead of swimming in the ocean let’s look at this lovely wedding cake that was inspired by the waves in the Big Blue!

I always wanted a beach wedding and this cake would be perfect for your beach wedding. Heck it would be perfect at your winter wedding if you had a beach theme! Read More

Wedding Cake with Fresh Berries

berry cake

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

Summer Strawberry Wedding Cake

strawberry cake

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

Wedding Cake with Purple Flowers

purple flowers

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

Wedding Cake with Peach Flowers

orange flowers

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

White Candy Wedding Cake

white candy cake

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

Rose Wedding Cake

white cake with red rose

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
