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.

Lace Wedding Cake

Having recently celebrated my own wedding anniversary, it’s always fun to think back to my wedding cake.

It was eight (yes, EIGHT) tiers of heart-shaped cakes. It was massive. But it fit my wedding theme – which was hearts. Everything was hearts.

I like a cake that fits in to a wedding theme or incorporates something from the wedding.

Just like today’s cake. Read More

Chocolate Wedding Cake

truffle wedding cake

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.

Almost.

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.

A Wedding Cake Made of Cheese

cake with cheese

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

Summer Strawberry Wedding Cake

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

Wedding Cake with Waves

Having just returned from a week at the beach I’m still daydreaming about the sand and surf so I just had to share a beach-y wedding cake today!

And I’m loving the look of this modern beach-inspired cake.

Not only does the cake feature lovely seashells as embellishments, but will you look at those ‘waves’ on the icing?

It’s almost too pretty to eat.

Almost. Read More

Rainbow Wedding Cake

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.

And then I found this rainbow dot wedding cake and my week was made!

I love this wedding cake so very much. It’s fun and whimsical and pretty much screams “spring!” in a refined way, of course. Read More

As we slowly inch closer and closer to summer it means we’re getting that much closer to beach season too.

And that means beach weddings and wedding cakes the remind us of the beach.

Like today’s wedding cake. It’s a subtle reminder of the things we love most about the beach – the surf and the sand. Read More

Spring Green Wedding Cake with Flowers

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
