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.

Multi-Tier Unfrosted Wedding Cake

Today I’m showcasing another naked, unfrosted wedding cake simply because it’s like nothing I’ve seen before.

Not only is it part of the whole “naked wedding cake” trend that just keeps hanging on (what do you have against frosting??) but look very closely at the cake.

Do you see what I see?

Yep! That’s right! Star Wars Lego figurines.

That. Is. Awesome. Read More

Naked Wedding Cake with Pink Peony

Sometimes, less is better.

For example – when it is 95 degrees outside with 1 million percent humidity, it’s better to be in a bathing suit than a business suit. Less is better.

The same can be said of wedding cakes. When it’s hot and humid outside sometimes the last thing you want is a wedding cake with a whole bunch of icing. Read More

Sprinkle Wedding Cake

And it’s time for another sprinkle wedding cake! I can’t help myself – I’m totally in LOVE with these cakes.

I can’t explain my obsession with wedding cakes adorned with sprinkles. They’re just so fun and whimsical yet still with an air of elegance.

And I’m in love with today’s cake thanks to the subtle yet colorful cascade of jewel-toned confetti sprinkles and the golden ‘LOVE’ cake topper. Read More

Wedding Cake with Garden Flowers

I love this time of early summer – a couple weeks after all the flowers have been planted, when they’re still bright and blooming.

My backyard looks like a flower shop with pots and containers full of pink and purple blooms.

Which brings me to today’s wedding cake – a lovely two-tier confection topped with fresh garden flowers. Read More

Carnival Wedding Cake

If there’s one thing I really love to see when it comes to wedding cakes it’s a cake that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

After all, your wedding day should be filled with fun and smiles so why not add a touch of whimsy to the cake table?

Take today’s cake as a perfect example – it has a fun carnival theme and a super cute cake topper to boot! Read More

Naked Wedding Cake for Summer

I made a trip to a local greenhouse over the weekend to purchase my summer flowers.

And while picking out my blooms, I spied the strawberry fields next door which got me thinking about that sweet summer fruit.

Around here, strawberries hit their peak in mid-June or so, which means I’ll have a chance to enjoy some very, very soon!

But for now I’ll have to be happy with today’s wedding cake – which is adorned with bright red strawberries! Read More

Pink Sprinkle Wedding Cake

I really can’t get enough of wedding cakes with sprinkles!

They’re just so darn whimsical and fun.

Today’s cake is particularly gorgeous with its light pink icing and just one tier decked out in colorful sprinkles. It really make the whole cake just pop!

The addition of a pretty pink bloom is the perfect enhancement – it adds some elegance to the cake but still keeps it fun. Read More

Simple Wedding Cake with Roses

Naked wedding cakes are one of those wedding cake trends that I’m not sure I can fully support.

I mean, c’mon. These cakes are seriously lacking in one very important ingredient – FROSTING! But, as the saying goes, it’s what in the inside that counts.

And if you’re going to go with a naked wedding cake for your reception just make sure it has a lot of icing inside. Then I’ll be OK with it. Read More

White Wedding Cake with Blue Flowers

Lately I’ve been daydreaming about the beach. A lot.

This is likely due to the fact that very soon I’ll be lounging on a beach in the Caribbean without a care in the world.

But it also got me thinking about beach-themed wedding cakes since it is the perfect time of year for a beach wedding.

And then I found this cake and fell in love. Read More
