Teal Swarovski Crystals and Flowers Wedding Cake

Beautiful Cake by The Pastry Studio...Who Happened to Bake My Cake, Too!

Sometimes you just need a bit of flair to bring a cake to perfection. Perhaps some feathers or a touch of pink or you can add fabulous teal Swarovski crystals.

Today’s cake is by the lovely and talented team at The Pastry Studio in Daytona Beach, Florida. If you haven’t seen any of their cakes then check out this Retro Bubble Cake, or this incredible Nutcracker-Inspired Cake.

The intricate detailing on this cake if perfection! The hand made sugar-paste flowers and the beautiful scrolling are gorgeous. And I love how they added a little bling in the form of teal Swarovski crystals. It’s a much lighter touch than all of the rhinestone trim that we saw last year, and frankly, I love it!  It adds a little pop of color that complements the all white perfectly, and it’s a luxurious look without going overboard.

Pink and Brown Square Wedding Cake with Scrolls

Pink and Brown Square Cake

It’s the simple touches that really set apart good from fantastic, right?  Anna Hightower from Central Florida’s Anna Cakes totally gets that.

I saw this cake for the first time on Twitter, when Anna sent me a pic.  I immediately fell in love!  I mean, pink and brown are such a fantastic color combo anyway, but then I took in the different design elements – the perfectly piped scrolls, the top layer that was round for whimsy, the brooch and the picture-perfect initial cake topper – they all came together to make a beautiful cake.  But truly, what sets it apart for me is the Read More


Southern All the Way: Magnolia and Bling Wedding Cake

Magnolia and bling

If I can’t have pearls, then diamonds will do.  Agreed, girls?

This cake practically drawls at us from the computer screen, doesn’t it?  Oh, how I adore Savannah!  Random?  Not really.  For this cake evokes long, slow, sultry walks on the squares, and delicious food, and beautiful architecture, and gracious people.  That’s no coincidence, because this cake was created by Savannah’s own Custom Cakes.

Sugar magnolias rest on a simple, classic white cake.  The base of each layer is trimmed with ivory ribbon and capped with a double strand of rhinestones, which Read More


Crystal and Pink White Snowflake Cake

Crystal and Pink Snowflake Cake

I know that my friends and family in other parts of the country are rrrreeeealllyy super hoping that winter spread its last hurrah recently, when the Facebook posts about falling snow were coming thick and furious.  So to bid adieu (hopefully) to the white stuff, here’s a reminder of all that is enchanting and sparkly about it.

There’s just something about a snowflake cake!

When I saw this gorgeousness from Rachael Teufel and Company at Intricate Icings, I knew I had to feature it.  The cake was the perfect centerpiece for a breathtaking New Year’s Eve wedding in Colorado.  And those aren’t Read More


Black and White Classic Cake


It’s no secret that often times I will post something funky and eclectic over a classic cake. Not because I don’t love the classics–but after awhile they all begin to look alike. However, you can always get me to change my mind when you show me a gorgeous black and white cake. So obviously, I love a tall classic Read More
