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.

Naked Wedding Cake with Sprinkles

I prefer my wedding cakes to have a lot of icing. After all, is a cake really a cake without icing?

But sometimes I find a “naked” wedding cake (sans icing) that really intrigues me.

Take for example today’s nearly naked caked that is adorned with some colorful and whimsical sprinkles. Read More

Today is the second day of March, which means we are daydreaming about springtime and flowers and warmer weather.

However, it is also currently snowing outside so we are also thinking about snow and ice and cold – all the wintry things that look like the colors of this cake.

We love this gorgeous cake. The three tiers each feature a different shade of blue and it gives it an elegant ombre look. Read More

I’m all about thinking spring right now!

Sure it’s been a mild winter here in the Midwest but with a potential snowstorm in tonight’s forecast I’ve decided that I’m done with winter and just want to focus on spring.

And spring means all things green! It’s the one time of year that I really, really like the color green.

Green grass. Green leaves. Shamrock Shakes. You know, all things spring. Read More

We’re still daydreaming about spring even if winter is still hanging on and sending more cold temperatures our way.

And one of the things we love most about spring is the arrival of gorgeous flowers.
