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.
I love this time of year – the leaves are changing colors, the nights are cooler, and everything is about fall!

I adore polka dots. They’re fun and whimsical while still being classic and somewhat elegant.
And if those polka dots look like tiny hearts? Well, that’s even better.

It is nearly wedding cake perfection. Read More

A quick, cursory glance at today’s wedding cake and you might think “OK, it’s a pretty white cake with some fresh flowers.”

Of course I know we still have weeks of summer left. That’s how it is in August and September in the Midwest. We get teases of fall for weeks. Read More
I’ll be the first to admit that pink wasn’t “my color” for the longest time. In fact, I avoided the color pink, even when planning my own wedding years ago.
But now I can actually tolerate the color pink and even love it sometimes.
Like today. When I find a gorgeous pink wedding cake that is subtle and elegant and practically perfect in its pink-ness. Read More
