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.

Rustic Fall Wedding Cake

fall cake

I woke up this morning to very chilly fall-like temperatures and the reality that fall really is just around the corner.

So what better time to start talking about fall wedding cake, right?

I love the idea of having a rustic fall wedding – especially if it’s still warm enough outside to host an outdoor reception.

Which brings me to today’s wedding cake – it’s very rustic but also elegant, which isn’t an easy combination to pull off. Read More

Shades of Orange Wedding Cake

So now that we’ve “officially” said goodbye to summer, it’s time to start thinking about fall.

More specifically it’s time to start thinking about ideas for fall wedding cakes.

Now I’m not normally a fan of the color orange – it’s just one of those colors that rarely wows me. Plus most orange cakes end up looking like pumpkins, which is OK if that’s the look you’re going for. Read More

Fun Wedding Cake Topper

I was at a friend’s wedding recently and her cake topper was a simple yet elegant banner.

And I thought to myself how perfect and lovely the banner was. There was nothing over-the-top about it and it fit perfectly with her vintage, shabby chic theme for the reception. Read More

Miniature Wedding Cakes

It’s no secret that I love cake. Especially wedding cake.

There’s just something extra special about wedding cake that makes it taste better than your average every day cake.

So how amazing would it be if you could serve your guests their own wedding cake?

I’m not talking about a slice of cake – I’m talking about miniature wedding cakes. One for every guest. Read More

White Floral Wedding Cake

We’ve featured a lot of very bright and vibrant wedding cakes on this blog, but sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics.

And today that means an all-white wedding cake creation.

This all-white cake would work in all seasons and with any color scheme making it versatile and very elegant.

I love the simple satin ribbon around each tier of the cake and the white flowers add to the overall elegance of the cake. Read More

White and Pink Wedding Cake

Sure the calendar says it is only the middle of August but we all know that fall is right around the corner. However, I’m still clinging to summer with all my might, which means we’re still going to talk about summer wedding cakes.

Just like today’s beautiful pink and white creation.

This gorgeous three-tiered cake features light pink and white icing with a ruffle design that really pops. Read More

Fun and Whimsical Cake Topper

hooray cake topper

Gone are the days of the ‘traditional’ bride and groom cake topper. Now it’s all about modern and “playful” decor for the top of your wedding cake.

I’m sure gonna miss those porcelain figurines atop a white wedding cake.

But seriously, all joking aside … I really do love seeing fun and whimsical cake topper on wedding cakes. Heck, I’m even a fan of just using fresh blooms to accent the top of your cake.

As long as the cake topper adds beauty to the cake I say go for it! Read More

A Wedding Cake Made of Cheese

cake with cheese

I love cheese.

I’m talking I could eat cheese at every meal if given the opportunity. Which is probably why I would love to be invited to a wedding reception where the cake was made entirely of cheese.

Just like today’s wedding cheese cake.

This stunning cake was created using five wheels of cheese and it would be the perfect “cake” for a reception where there was also a dessert buffet. Read More

Wedding Cake with Gold Bows

I like finding wedding cakes that are unique – something you aren’t going to see at every other wedding.

Today’s cake is that kind of cake. It’s not every day that you see a wedding cake adorned with tiny gold bows, and that makes me love it even more.

This three-tier cake is perfect for an elegant reception with a small guest list. Read More

Summer Wedding Cake with Flowers

fresh flower cake

One of the things I love most about summer is watching all the flowers bloom and grow and sometimes even outgrown their planting pots.

And if you’re having a summer wedding it’s a great idea to showcase some of those gorgeous summer blooms on your wedding cake!

Aside from looking great, when you decorate your cake with flowers you don’t need anything else on the cake – not even a cake topper. Read More
