Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for December 11, 2011

Pearlized Snow Berry Fake  Wedding Cake

Happy December, Y’all!  We hope that you’re having as much fun as we are with this holiday season!

Last night, we celebrated an early Canadian Christmas with good friends.  Keith, you see, grew up in Canada, and Robin keeps some of the fun traditions alive every year.  In the past couple of seasons, we’ve gotten in on the fun.  Tourtiere, a hearty French onion soup topped with a wonderful Gruyere, potatoes au gratin, and, for the first time, a buche de noel!  And we can’t forget the fabulous French wines.  Yum!  It’s a special Read More


Bare Branch Wedding Cake

Bare Branches Wedding Cake

We’re gearing up – or maybe you’re already in full throttle – for the spectacularity that is the Winter Holiday Season – Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to YOU!  But do you remember the old days?  The days when Christmas didn’t start five minutes after you pushed back from your Thanksgiving seconds?  Or – shudder – right after the Labor Day picnic?

Am I showing my age?  Sigh.

Well…all of that to say that I do remember such a time…a time when you thought…hmm…it’s not fall, it’s not Christmas…it…just…is.  No pretty leaves, no super crazy snow.  Just beautiful bare Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Simply Silhouette Wedding


I feel like I should rename this Show Stopper Friday. For realz.

This silhouette cake topper is made by Simply Silhouette Weddings and it is kind of amazing. I could be partial though because I am all about some silhouettes lately. I have seriously “pinned” every DIY silhouette tutorial on Pinterest in an effort to get one made of my son. I’ll let you know how that goes…probably not well if history plays a role. I should probably leave it to the professionals because Read More


Black and White Scroll Work Wedding Cake


Black and white is classic a la Coco Chanel…so obviously a black and white wedding cake is oozing with class and sophistication. This is a three-tiered round cake covered in white buttercream. The buttercream is covered in a gorgeous black scroll work pattern. My favorite part of this cake is the incredible black fondant bow that starts at the top of the cake, and flutters all the way down to the bottom tier. I love how it’s wrapped up like a perfect present..and I love presents!

St. Louis Cake


Meet me in St. Louis…ohh Judy Garland. I love you even though you *probably* weren’t exactly stable.

And this cake has nothing to do with Judy Garland but it has everything to do with St. Louis. Literally. The bottom tier is a St. Louis skyline and the topper is the beloved cap of the Read More


Candy Cake and Cake Stand


We are no stranger to Jenniffer from Cup A Dee Cakes. We’ve featured some of her gorgeous cakes before like this Scroll Pattern Cake and we have featured her on our Let Them Eat Cake Round Up more times than I can count.

However, we’ve never met her Read More


Turtle Wedding Cake


My best friend Robin and her husband dated for 10 years before they got married.

The Best Man, the Maid of Honor, and the Father of the Bride speeches all had the same theme.


What’s that saying? Slow and steady wins the race? True…and Robin and her Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for December 3, 2011

Twilight Wedding Cake

HOW is it already December?

I ask that for a couple of reasons.  First off, HOLY COW, I HAVE A LOT OF PLANNING TO DO!  Shopping, baking, wrapping, mailing!  I’m not sure why I’m accusing Christmas of sneaking up on me.  Clearly, the fault lies in my lap, not the calendar’s.

But I’m also just completely amazed that we’ve been at this for a year!  Well, a little over a year, but I didn’t come on board until January, so it’s feeling like my anniversary is coming up.

Wow – can I just stop and gush for a minute, and Read More


White Ruffle Cake

White Ruffle Cake

We’re apparently in good company when it comes to ruffle love!

You saw our terrific Ruffle Week 2011 last month, yes?  With cascading ruffles, ombre ruffles, and even white chocolate ruffles.  Sigh. We’re still kind of pretty-drunk from it all.

But lo and behold, MORE ruffles poured in!  Tasha Nagy from Kick Ass Cakes in Fraser Valley, British Columbia sent me this sweet and pretty cake because she knows we are OBSESSED!  Seriously!  Ruffles!  Pearls! Flowers!  All White!  It’s like Tasha made Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Hans Solo and Princess Leia Bobble Head Cake Toppers


Do you remember last week when I posted our first Star Wars themed wedding cake and I commented on how long it took us to do so?

Well, I must be making up for lost time because I died when I saw these cake toppers and I knew they had to be featured! This cake features a Hans Solo and Princess Leia bobble-heads as their toppers. While I’m not exactly a Star Wars nut, the bobble-heads as a topper concept is not lost on me. There is a lot you could do here. You could use your favorite sports team bobble-heads, or is there another Read More
