Themed Wedding Cakes


A themed wedding cake may be just what you’re looking for to set your cake and reception apart. While a themed cake would be a natural fit for a wedding that also invokes a theme – say an “Alice in Wonderland” wedding, or a renaissance wedding – a bride and groom may also choose a theme for their cake based upon the a favorite amusement park ride or a preferred hobby, a favorite location, or a season or holiday. For the couple enjoys the daring fun of an amusement park ride, we’ve seen cakes that immortalize attractions like Disney’s Splash Mountain – fun! Likewise, the bicycling-enthusiast couple might prefer a cake that shows a mountain bike ride. Less specific would be the couple who incorporate images and items from the ocean into a beach cake, which might include gum paste shells and star fish, sand-like or pearly finish, and maybe a sand castle topper. Finally, if your wedding takes place near a beloved holiday or season, like the Fourth of July, or autumn, or Christmas time, consider incorporating themes that echo those holidays or times of the year. A July wedding cake might be decorated with stars and sparklers, while autumn might show off colorful marzipan leaves and chocolate twigs and acorns. Christmas might inspire the use of traditional garnets and greens, or cool and snowy blues and silvers. If there is a theme that you love, consider celebrating it with your wedding cake. It will make your day even more memorable, for both you and your guests.


Airstream Wedding Cake

airstream wedding cake

In one of my favorite theme weddings ever, this cake — and the whole wedding, actually — paid homage to all things fun and quirky. The bride wore a deep pink dress; the desserts included multicolored cupcakes sporting plastic butterflies, pinwheels, and kazoos; and the whole thing was done up in neon!

This cake, proclaiming that the couple is getting hitched, takes the pun a step further with a tiny Airstream trailer surrounded by — what else? Pink flamingos!

This is for the brides who don’t take themselves too seriously 😉

Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for February 6, 2011

Crab Cake by Sheri's Edible Designs, Hilton Head, SC

Dreary, dreary, dreary. As we cross over that period of winter when we think we’re never going to have warm weather again, and into the hope that surely, spring is just around the corner, we at AWCB can’t think of anything that cheers us up better or faster than a towering confection of sugary love and Read More


Lighthouse Wedding Cake


True story..you can make a cake look like ANYTHING. Including a lighthouse..with a slide coming out of the top and little tiny fondant members of the wedding party sliding down. I seriously scrolled through the Flickr album hoping that I could get some sort of clue HOW this wedding cake came Read More


Tiffany’s Wedding Cake


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


Love Among the Tartans: A Celtic Cake

Celtic Wedding Cake A Cake to Remember

Kara Buntin of A Cake to Remember  of Richmond, Virginia, has created my Dream Wedding Cake.

What is it with me, wedding cake, and chick flicks featuring Julia Roberts?  But here we go again.

Remember that scene in “Steel Magnolias,” where the ladies are discussing the wedding decorations in a Pepto-pink church?  And a demure – and very, very young – Julia Roberts remarks Read More


Disney Beach Wedding Cake


I’ll be the first to admit that I am counting down the days to my Disney/Beach trip in May. I’m dreaming of fun warm Disney days followed by days relaxing on the beach. I want to wind in my hair, the sand between my toes and to lotion myself up with stuff that smells like tropical fruit. Too much information..maybe..
When I saw this cake feature on Disney’s Fairytale Weddings and Honeymoon’s Ever After Blog (say that three times fast) I almost Read More


Android Wedding Cake


I’ve always thought that a wedding cake should show off a couple’s personal style.
A classic monogrammed cake? You are traditional and classic.
A fun cute with lots of flowers? You are probably Read More


Dreaming of Spring..


I have to admit that on days when it doesn’t get past 50 degrees in South Carolina and I haven’t seen then the sun in about five days..I get a little feisty.

I think I may of mentioned how I feel about January once before. Only instead of dreaming of Fall today I am dreaming of Spring..and this cake Read More


For everything there is a season..


Including cakes! I have to admit when I saw this cake from a distance I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on.

Then with closer inspection I realized that this is a basic three tiered square cake. Only this cake was a little different! On each side there is a tree and each tree represents a different season. It’s the weather cycle at its best folks. Now, this isn’t something that could just be slapped on a cake Read More
