Unconventional Wedding Cakes


In today’s wedding world, it seems that most wedding cakes are unconventional. It’s almost unconventional to have a white on white wedding cake! But in an unconventional wedding cake might refer to the design, the topper, or the flavors featured. Regarding design, one popular unconventional style today is the topsy turvy, asymmetrical design. Stacked cake layers give the illusion that the cake could spill over any minute, when in fact, the cake is balanced and level. Unconventional toppers are another way that a couple may make their cake unique. The couple who loves Angry Birds, for instance, can feature the adorable characters perched atop their cake. Can’t last a minute without your cell phone? There’s a wedding topper for that, too. Prefer Goth to Victorian? No problem. A talented baker can help you realize your dream cake. But you might opt for traditional design and toppers, and still find ways to be unconventional with flavors – even savory alternatives to wedding cakes, like “cakes” made of wheels of cheese, or layers of savory meet pies, might stand in for a conventional cake. So, express yourselves! In cake! And send us pictures.

A quick, cursory glance at today’s wedding cake and you might think “OK, it’s a pretty white cake with some fresh flowers.”

But look closer. This cake has a feature that is unique and one I wouldn’t have thought of on my own.

This cake is adorned with gold-dusted berries and they look like mini pine cones.

In fact, that’s what I thought they were when I first saw this lovely fall-inspired wedding cake. But oh no, they’re gold-dusted berries. Read More

It’s that time of year again – when I am finally over summer and just want it to be fall.

It’s been a bit chilly around here in the evenings, which makes me think about fall.

Oh how I love fall. It’s my favorite season – full of apples, sweaters, and all things pumpkin spice.

I don’t know about you but I’m still glued to the television every night watching the 2016 Summer Olympics.

I’m cheering on Team USA every night (although I will admit to rooting for Usain Bolt the other night!).

Wedding Cake with Fresh Fruit

One of my favorite things about mid-to-late summer is the abundance of fresh fruit at my local market. Peaches, plums, cherries, berries, and more.

And I can’t think of a better way to showcase all those gorgeous fruits than on a lovely white wedding cake!

People don’t often think about using fresh fruits as an embellishment on a cake, but it really is genius. Read More

Naked Bundt Cake with Flowers


Ah, bundt cakes. The ubiquitous cake of the 1950s and 1960s.

They’re so retro that they’re cool again – just ask my mom. She loves to bake bundt cakes for family birthdays, complete with homemade chocolate drizzle.

Imagine having a bundt cake as your wedding cake – now that would be cool. Plus, they’re basically the original “naked” cake, with only a drizzle of frosting. Read More


Lace Wedding Cake with Fresh Flower

I’m back with another lace-inspired wedding cake because I honestly just can’t get enough!

Today’s cake is one that I could stare at for hours, it’s so gorgeous.

The lace effect on this cake was painstakingly created by creating dozens of tiny sugar blossoms and then arranging them in a trail on the cake. Imagine the time it took – this cake is really too pretty to eat! Read More
