Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for December 9, 2012


Hi Guys!

Aren't the holidays the best?  I mean, I know it can be hectic, trying to get everything done, all while being intentional and meaningful about every little detail.  But still, it's such a great time to gather in and just love on people.

Last night, we celebrated one of my favorite new Christmas traditions, a Christmas dinner inspired by my friend Keith's French Canadian roots.  We ate too much, and drank a little, and just had a good time being.  There were so many smiles.  And that just feels good, you know?

So with very little shopping completed, and almost no baking planned, I'm gonna round up a few Sweet&Pretty things for you today, and then rest a bit in preparation for a jam-packed week.  I hope you can do the same — and I hope you enjoy whatever comes your way today!

We'll start with a recap of AWCB posts this week.

We kicked the week off Monday with this lovely winter-inspired wedding cake with pine cones.

On Wednesday, I rhapsodized (just a little) about coffee with this mocha wedding cake.  I love the meringues!

A black and ivory plaid cake (actually a birthday cake, but it would be gorg for a wedding) stole the show on Thursday.

I showed you another cute variation on the bride and groom cake topper on Friday. This time, the bride was dragging the groom back from a hunting trip.

And on Saturday, we featured this incredible groom's cake based upon the board game the Settlers of Catan.  Incredible!

And now for some Sweet&Pretty from the interwebs:

Wedding Bee shares a fun story of small town wedding cake tasting.

From Polka Dot Bride, here's a recipe for one of our faves — rum balls!

Apparently, emerald is the color of 2013.  So says Pantone. Via Wedbits.

Sigh & sigh: Limm & Lovely share a darling mood board: tartan and thistle.  Yup.

Have a Delicious Week!
