For the Guys: Bow Tie Groom’s Cake

Bow Tie Groom's Cake

Here’s another page from the files of “The Guy Had Nothing to Do with Picking this Cake.”  But I love it, so you’re gonna see it ANYWAY.

In the interest of full disclosure, this cake was actually made by Cocoa and Fig of Minneapolis (LOVE THEM, and have featured them before with their FAB Rock Candy Wedding Cake) for a styled shoot.  Which, in wedding blog terms, means Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Football Toting Couple

Football Couple Wedding Cake Topper


Will your wedding reception feature a pick up game of touch football?  Not so much?  Do you wish it did?

Even if your über expensive gown and shoes (and makeup and hair and nails) don’t lend themselves to grass stains and sweat, you can fantasize about playing football with your new life partner with this adorable Football Toting Couple Cake Topper from Weddingstar.

I mean…how fun is this, anyway?  I love this idea of the couple who plays together.  Because you can’t play together without Read More


Pink Wedding Cake with White Trim

Pink Wedding Cake

Pretty, pretty, pretty.  And dare I say – without being fired upon where I stand – ladylike?

This breathtakingly beautiful pink wedding cake with white trim makes me think of Easter dresses, and ladies who lunch, and kelly bags, and spectator pumps, and white gloves and hats, and every sweet, fun thing that there ever was about being a girl.  Really.  I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a strand of pearls secreted about it somewhere.

Created by Jean-Paul’s Creative Cakes in (of course!) Charleston, South Carolina, pale pink fondant hides Read More


Charlotte Wedding Cake

Charlotte Wedding Cake

Today’s cake is for the lover of rustic or DIY:  the Charlotte Wedding Cake.

Sometimes in the dead of summer (like, you know, now), simpler just seems better, yes?  Sure, ornate cakes with a ton of detail and many man hours will elicit the obiligatory “WOW!” from our guests, and that is all well and good.  But I for one find myself trying to Read More


Roses Wedding Cake

I debated using this cake – I’ve had it in my folder for a while – because it’s a little old school (Old School here having the mean of 2007.)  And you know what?  I’m gonna do it.  ‘Cause it’s not getting any younger, and it’s well done.

What do I like about this one?  It’s neatness.  Simple cakes can go horribly wrong.  Fast.  Fondant can bubble, buttercream can look not smooth enough, edges can be cockeyed.  But this cake is perfect.  Square, the piped dotted Read More


Sand Colored Ombre Seashell Cake

Why don’t I just declare it “Beachy Monday?” Or “Summer State of Mind Day?”

I seem to gravitate toward beach-themed cakes. Because. I. Love. Them. As you well know, I make my home a little inland from the very southern east coast, and I’d be even more coastal if I had my way about it.

But this cake is simply GORG! I mean, it’s not enough that it has SEASHELLS…but it’s OMBRE TOO! And sand-colored at that. Friends joke sometimes that my signature color is khaki, so you know I’m diggin’ that background. But that’s not all there is to the adorableness…the Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for July 15, 2012

White on white tea wedding cake

Hey, Everyone!

It has been a fun week of visiting and preparing, as we get ready to welcome a dear friend for a visit. But even though the week has involved a LOT of cleaning (what is it about a pending visit that makes all the dirt that you blissfully pass for days POP right out at you??) there have been liberal trips to the beach to break it up a bit. Add in dear times with family and fun times with girlfriends, and it has been one terrific week!

So let’s take just a quick look around this week to see what’s going on in the world of Sweet and Pretty. We’ll be back to our regular Read More


For the Guys: Tobasco Bottle Groom’s Cake

Tobasco Bottle Groom's Cake

Ready for something a little spicy today, Boys?

I know a LOT of fellas that don’t think their meal is complete without a little shake-shake of their favorite hot sauce.  And while we all have our favorites, Tobasco does seem to be the Granddaddy of them all, yes?

I think this is a really adorable cake.  I’m always slightly amused by sweet cake that’s shaped to resemble something that it won’t possibly taste like.  But then again, maybe they managed to add some Tobasco to the filling.  What do y’all think?  Chocolate-Tobasco Read More


Cake Topper Friday: Love Car Cake Topper

Love Car Cake Topper

Ah, the Wedding Getaway Car.  Unless you’re all limousine-y (I’m not so much), or you’re getting married in the dead of winter and not in Cali or Florida, can you really go wrong with a convertible?

And this is some serious cuteness, from the Valentine’s Day reds and pinks, to the heart-shaped grill, to the “4-EVER” license plate adorning the front.  And we guarantee that your very talented cake artist could totally dream up some Read More


PJs Coffee Wedding Cake

PJs Coffee Wedding Cake

I love coffee, and I love cake.  And when those two passions collide, bliss is sure to follow.

This is just Thursday post fun, y’all.  I spied this pic when I was looking for something on Flickr, and just had to share.  Apparently, PJs Coffee of New Orleans features a (sounds yummy) coffee flavor called “Southern Wedding Cake.” (There better be booze in there if it’s gonna be reality.  But I digress.)  In honor of the return of this fab flavor, there was a little launch party of sorts, and Sucre, a local bakery, provided this fantastic wedding cake!  Isn’t that awesome?  From what we gather, the cup is Read More
