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.

Royal Icing Monogram Wedding Cake

Royal Icing Monogram

I am shopping for monogrammed stationery; ergo, I am naming this Monogrammed Wedding Cake Week. I know…it's already Wednesday. But there's time to catch up.

I absolutely adore this idea, especially for a small wedding. But even if your gathering is large-ish, what a beautiful cake! And so much prettier than a Read More

Sushi Wedding Cake

Sushi Wedding Cake

Time for another fabulous themed cake. This one falls in the “juxtaposition of things that definitely don’t remind you of cake, but it’s so pretty you can’t help yourself” category.

I think this cake is absolutely beautiful. The Japanese characters are flawless, and the gumpaste flowers are incredibly lifelike. But the star of the show is the assortment of gumpaste sushi that adorns the top of the cake.

And So It Begins: Winter Holiday Wedding Cakes

present wedding cake-001

I figure if the big box stores are already advertising, and I’m already shopping, then it’s okay for me to start the winter holiday/Christmas-inspired cake posting…yes?  I thought you’d agree.

This one had me at Red Ribbon.  Is this not completely, totally, utterly fabulous?  What appears to be a pile of presents is, in fact, a cake.  Or a pile of cakes.  I’m not sure.

At any rate, I totally Read More

Peacock Inspired Wedding Cake

Peacock inspired wedding cake

Jenniffer at Cup a Dee Cakes has done it again.  Bloomed out all genius on us.

I know that peacock motifs are hot hot hot right now.  Jenniffer wonders if it has anything to do with Katy Perry.  I wonder if it has to do with the resurgence of Edwardian love we've got goin' on right now. (Vintage once again means something other than 1982.  And I for one am thankful.)

But Read More

Square Vertical Striped Blue Wedding Cake

blue striped cake

I went in search of preppy today. And preppy I found.

You may not believe this, but I'm not so much a froufrou girl.  My favorite colors?  Khaki and navy blue.  In fact, I'll give you a $100 if you can spy me one day out of my life without khaki on my person somewhere.

I really love tailored and unfussy stuff.  And today, I wanted to declutter a bit, cakewise.

I love this approach to cakery, don't you?  Sure, we've seen Read More
