Mount Rainier Wedding Cake


I hope that you enjoyed Ruffle Week 2011. I know that I sure did. Seeing all that ruffly goodness made me proud to be a girl.

As much as I love themed weeks this week we’re back to featuring regular old un-themed wedding cakes. Of course the obvious theme would be Thanksgiving but did you know that Thanksgiving weddings aren’t extremely popular? Therefore, Thanksgiving themed wedding cakes…not so much? Luckily I did find a gem that I will save for Thursday’s post.

Instead let’s post a wedding cake that is modeled after Mt. Rainier in Washington state. Because when you think of Thanksgiving don’t you think of the most dangerous Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for November 20, 2011

ruffle cake

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

I hope this finds you happy, healthy, and counting your blessings, this Sunday before Thanksgiving.  And whether you are going Over the River and Through the Woods, or gathering at a friend’s hip apartment with friends, my wish is that you find something to be truly grateful for this holiday season – love, laughter, plenty to eat, and so on and so forth.

But enough lecturing 😉 . We’ve found some lovely things around the interwebs this week, and we thought you’d like to see them, too.  So without Read More


White Chocolate Ruffle Cake

Ruffle White chocolate Cake

Today, we wrap up Ruffle Week 2011 here on A Wedding Cake Blog with a cake that has a little different take on the frilly furbelows of ruffles.

Ruffles. Meet Chocolate. Helloooo, perfection.

Don’t you simply LOVE this cake? Two tiers of cake, enrobed in real chocolate, People. This isn’t candy coating, or modeling chocolate. This chocolate has been tempered and made to resemble rustic ruffles, so that each slice of the cake yields a lovely snap. And check out the gorgeous flower pinned to the side, and the topping of – what else? – more Read More


Ombre Ruffle Cake

Ombre Ruffle Wedding Cake

We have to end Ruffle Week 2011 with a bang…I believe that is cake is the cake to do just that.

I’m not sure there is anything more “Fall 2011″ than Ombre & Ruffles.  When you combine them, wonderful, wonderful things happen.  Like this cake from Maggie Austin Cakes. (If you’d like to know about Maggie Austin Cakes – and trust me, you do – check out this week’s Round-Up for a terrific article about the artist.)

In case you have no idea what I am talking about, ombre is basically taking the same shades of one color and having the colors scale from light to dark.  We’ve talked about it a time or two here.  I have Read More


Cascading Ruffle Cake


True fact.  Ruffles do not have to take over your cake.  They can cascade down it like some gorgeous waterfall.  Just like this one.

This cake is a three tiered cake covered in flawless white fondant.  I love how the ruffles just sort of fall down the side of the cake in various shades of pink.  I am not sure how but I almost want to wear this cake.  You know, like a shirt.  In fact I think I may own a Read More


Three Ruffle Cakes

Alanna and Tim-209

There are just so many things that are right about this picture that they had to be a part of Ruffle Week 2011.

Let’s start with the three gorgeous ruffle cakes.  One in perhaps the lightest pink that I have ever seen.  The next in a gorgeous light blue.  The third (and best) cake is a Read More


How to Make Your Own Ruffle Cake


I am never surprised when I see a cake on Pinterest that I think it is just amazing and then I click the link and it takes me to My Sweet & Saucy.

Melody’s cakes are just so fresh and modern while being classic all at the same time.  Seriously, the girl has some skills.  I’ve featured several of her cakes here Read More


Martha Stewart Ruffle Tower Cake


Guess what?

I have hereby determined that it’s Ruffle Week here on AWCB.

Why?  Because I have an abundance of ruffle cakes in my Pinterest folder and I have been teaching 2nd grade long enough to know that every week needs a theme.  Oh yes.

To kick off RW ’11 (Ruffle Week 2011) we’ve got to pay homage to the Goddess of the Ruffle herself.  You know who I am talking Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for November 13, 2011

Black and White ruffle wedding cake

Happy…well…post 11.11.11!  Lame, I know.  But wasn’t that crazy?  I mean, we’ve had 1.1.1, 2.2.2, 3.3.3, etc, etc,…but people really went crazy for 11.11.11, didn’t they?  From movie premieres to weddings, it was crazy times this past Friday.  Heck, we’re just glad to be that much closer to Turkey Day around here.

Still, beyond that freak snowstorm that pummeled the Northeast, it’s turning out to be a lovely fall.  And as we’re making our lists and checking them twice, we thought we’d pause to see what’s going on in the world of wedding.  But before we get to all the lovely, Read More


Chocolate Fondant and Autumn Tree Wedding Cake

Chocolate and Autumn Tree Wedding Cake

Isn’t this pretty? So nice and…autumn-y.  I think Christen will be really impressed with me for posting this one.  What do y’all think?

This beautiful cake, made by Slice Cake Studio in Longmont, CO, was inspired by the couple’s wedding invitation!  I would really like to see that stationary personally, because this is stunning and I think it just looks, well…yummy.

Three layers, perfectly uniform in height…the bottom and top covered with a rich, chocolate-brown fondant.  And sandwiched Read More
