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.
If I’m being totally honest, I have chocolate on the mind this week.
The other day I gave props to the gorgeous chocolate crepe wedding cake and today I’m talking about this amazing chocolate truffle tower cake.
Look at this cake. It is almost too amazing to eat.
The cake is inspired by the corquembouche, a traditional French wedding cake. Each of the truffles is rolled in assorted cocoa powders which give the cake layers of color and flavor.
And if the truffles aren’t enough to grab you, underneath the chocolate goodness is a yellow butter cake that is filled and frosted with more chocolate – chocolate ganache to be exact.
This is basically the most perfect chocolate wedding cake ever.
And if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you could actually make this cake. You know, as a DIY project. Check out the details here.
You’ll find this truffle cake here.
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

Here in the midwest it’s officially strawberry season, which is rather exciting if you’re a fan of the bright red sweet and juicy berries.
Me? I prefer mine with a big bowl of whipped cream and sans shortcake, but if someone was to offer me a slice of wedding cake adorned with strawberries I’m pretty sure I won’t turn it down.
Especially if that strawberry wedding cake looked like this beauty! Read More

I saw a news report this week about a rare quadruple rainbow that was spotted over New York State. As a big fan of rainbows I thought that would be pretty cool to see.

The great spring thaw of 2015 is happening right now in the northern half of the country and we’re slowly starting to see hints of green(ish) grass under the melting snow!
Which got me thinking about springtime grass and flowers and everything starting to bloom. Which of course made me think about green wedding cakes with flowers. It’s how my brain works. Read More
