Square Wedding Cakes

 

Square wedding cakes have gained in popularity over the last few years. While they still trail their round counterparts significantly, they are the second most popular shape that cakes take in today’s wedding cake world. The couple who chooses a square cake may have a myriad of reasons for doing so. Maybe they just want something a little different. Or maybe a particular design feature that they have chosen works better with a square cake, such as a monogram. Perhaps the couple (or the bride, or the wedding planner or caterer) has a lovely old cake stand to feature, and it just so happens to be square in shape. Whatever reason, square cakes, whether separated by columns, or stacked with tiers directly on top of one another, emphasize the couple’s attention to detail. Round cakes are the default; square cakes must be requested, and for that reason, seem just a little more special.

I’ll Have a Little Bling, Please

Rhinestone trimmed cake

Nine days out of ten, you’ll find me reaching for my pearls.  And on day ten, you ask?  Well, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, after all.

Isn’t this divine?  A cake…that sparkles.  Well, of course!

The combination of bling Read More

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for February 27, 2011

Chic Swirl Cake

Can you feel it?  That crackle of excitement in the air.  Any minute, that first crocus is going to burst forth through the snow.  Any day now, that first jonquil will peep its sunny little head skyward.

Maybe it’s the anticipation of a Royal Wedding.  Maybe it’s a touch of premature spring fever.  Read More

Baseball Grooms Cake

Baseball

My husband really loves baseball. In a throw down featuring Christen vs. The Atlanta Braves, I am not sure who would win. With the Braves’ first Spring Game with their new coach Alan Butts at the reigns coming up, my husband has been counting the minutes this week.

So in honor of baseball fans everywhere..I bring you..the Baseball Grooms Cake! I actually don’t know if the bride and groom who own this cake are Braves fans, but I like to think so since the colors are blue and red. I like how this is a simple, two tiered square cake topped with a baseball. The ball is Read More

Kate and William: The Royal Wedding

Charles and Di

I have a secret to admit.
I am obsessed with the upcoming royal wedding for a lot of reasons. I love Kate Middleton..as her doppelganger (albeit she is way skinnier and much better dressed than I..but that Doppelganger week on Facebook I was totally her..) Mostly I am obsessed because I know that this wedding is going to set the tone for so many weddings in the next few years. Every girl dreams of being a princess on her wedding day..but becoming an ACTUAL princess on your wedding day..it kind of takes my breath away.
With all the chatter of the upcoming wedding I wanted to do some research on the LAST big royal wedding. Read More

Strawberry Wedding Cake

strawberries

“Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today….It’s Groundhog Day!!”

Name that movie..go..

Got it. Groundhog Day with Bill Murray. A favorite of mine that I had never seen until a few years ago. Another fun Groundhog day fact…it’s not called “Groundhog’s Day” which I called it oh..my entire life. It’s singular as in one wee groundhog. Since Punxsatawney Phil did not see his shadow today (he must of gotten Read More

Tiffany’s Wedding Cake

Tiffanys

After a long weekend filled with work, work and oh..more work I want to start this week off right. With a little quote of inspiration from one Holly Golightly.

“Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s, then – then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name!”

I have to agree. There is something about Tiffany’s and their signature Robin’s Read More

Snow Berry Wedding Cake..

Pearlized Snow Berry Fake  Wedding Cake

You all know how much I think of Winter (i.e. not much)….but one thing I love is a winter wedding. Snowflakes, glitter, silver and beautiful berries…my heart runneth over.

When I saw this cake I envisioned a lovely bride in Snow White gown, a fur stole and elbow length gloves. The bottom layer is a square shape and the top two tiers are round. I love the mix of the two shapes..it adds a bit of modern flare. Around the base are gorgeous Pearlized Snow Berries. It looks good enough to eat.

Oh but wait..you can’t..because Read More
