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 LOVE this cake. I know that I say that a lot but I mean it this time. All the other times I lie. Just kidding.

This cake is adorable. It’s a three-tiered square cake, and the layers are stacked with fruit. Yummy fruit. Drenched in chocolate and powdered sugar. Fruit is always Read More

Grand Red and Black Wedding Cake

Black, red and white wedding cake

The cake I’m featuring today demands your attention.

This is no shy, shrinking violet of a wedding cake.  No demure, “Oh, look how sweet and innocent I am.  Really, just a place in the corner for me.”  No sirree bobby.  This cake declares itself the grande dame of wedding cakes, and expects you to perk up and notice – and use your best posture – when you walk into the reception.

Or is it just me?  You know, attributing personalities to cakes?

At any rate, this cake by Shawna of Flourish Cakes  (follow her on Twitter here) in Courtice, Ontario, is the kind of cake that is truly a centerpiece Read More

Auburn Wedding Cake

I am so torn about posting this because I have a shameful secret. I love Auburn.

I know, I know, this is SUCH a crisis because I also live and breath the South Carolina Gamecocks. Like a good South Carolina girl growing up I loved my Gamecocks. I even spent a year after college running the store inside the football stadium. Steve Spurrier knew who I was. Okay, let’s Read More

Beach Cupcake Perfection

Beach Cupcakes

I am in love. I am in love with a group of cupcakes.

Y’all know that I’m a beachy kinda girl, n’est pas?  I mean, give me two spare hours and see if you’ll catch me ANYWHERE else.  I will be under the umbrella, swimsuit on, iPod tuned to something mellow, watching the tide ebb and flow.

So it should come as no surprise that I instantly fell in love with this aDORable Read More

Before You Choose Your Baker Part I

Birdie

Get excited because this is a two part-er!

We have showcased hundreds of gorgeous wedding cakes on here.  The supply of amazing and gorgeous photos of cakes is limitless…but we all know those cakes didn’t just appear out of thin air.  They came from somewhere.  They were made by someone who was inspired by an idea.

It’s almost as exciting as the story about where babies come from.  Almost.

If you truly think about it this is your one opportunity as a bride to truly create something that symbolizes your wedding.  You wedding venue has done thousands of weddings before.  Your dress? There are probably at least a hundred other girls wearing it on your wedding day. Well, unless you are The Duchess of Cambridge of course.  Even though your baker has baked thousands of wedding cakes before.  Each every one is unique and special in their own way.  To me that makes them the most important part of your reception.

However, before you run into your baker for that wonderful tasting there are a few things you should do before choosing your baker.  This post will be in the form of a list.  Why?  Because I love lists.

1.  Research!  You’re off to a good start if you’re reading this.  Research is so important–because honestly you can’t walk into a baker without any idea of what you want or else you’ll end up with something that isn’t truly yours.  While you won’t actually be the one baking, sculpting, and icing, you Read More
