Wedding Cake DIY: Gerbera Daisies on Separated Tiers

Gerbera Daisy Cake

This cake reminded me so much of my friend Christen that I just had to share it with you.

Christen used to contribute regularly to A Wedding Cake Blog, and I know that she still loves to keep up with all the Sweet and Pretty that we feature here. And this cake actually reminds me of her for two reasons: Read More


Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for August 5, 2012


Greetings, one and all!  How does this lovely summer day find you?  Well, I hope!

It’s been SUCH an awesome week here, y’all.  If you’re a regular reader, then you know that I’m having a nice visit with my best friend, who flew in from half way across the country (and across what we normally call That Stupid Gulf) to spend a week.  A week of Nowhere to Go, Nowhere to Be.  Of sandcastles and ocean breezes.  Of the full moon over the lighthouse.  Of eating too much and laughing more.

Well, next week, it will be back to reality (after a quick trip to Key West to bid summertime, for all intents and purposes, adieu) but for now, we still have some playing to do!  So let’s share a few minutes together, looking over the week’s wedding Sweet and Pretty, and then it’s back to the grind of the beach! 😉

But what were we up to this week, first of all?  Glad you asked!

On Monday, we featured this darling Minnie Mouse-Inspired Birthday cake.  We think it would make an adorable wedding cake as well.

Tuesday brought these fantastic cube-shaped Deconstructed Wedding Cakes.  I love this look!

I featured this ethereal Yellow and Blush Rosepetal Cake on Wednesday.

Isn’t this Ice Blue Rustic Wedding Cake that we featured on Thursday fantastic?

On Cake Topper Friday, we fell in love with this Picture Perfect Couple.

For the Guys featured a mountain of chocolate, quite literally, with this Megeve Chocolate Groom’s Cake.

Are you a curvy girl?  Here’s a cute story featuring Five Marilyn Monroe-inspired wedding dresses.

Ha! Thank you, Miss Manners.  A gentle reminder that guests should not be asked to pay for your wedding.

Do we believe Jessica Biel when she says she’s done “almost nothing” for her wedding to Justin Timberlake? Hmmmm?

I adore this artsy backyard wedding, featured on Wedding Chicks, don’t you?  And the ruffled cake is so lovely, I feature it above.

Isn’t this Maggie Austin Cake, featured on Austin Wedding Blog, gorgeous?  I LOVE the green ruffles and blue flowers!

Here’s a really great post for brides considering baking their own wedding cakes.  From Vancity Bride.

Have a Delicious Week!  And wear your sunscreen!



Deconstructed Cube Wedding Cake

If you’re a foodie, or enjoy watching any of the foodie shows on Bravo or Food Network (etc., etc., etc., infinity), then you’ve heard the term “deconstructed” applied to food.  It’s been around for quite a while now, but you know, I don’t really mind it.  It usually means that the chef is focusing far more on the sum of the parts than he normally would.

This cake caught my eye because it was a “deconstructed” wedding cake.  Now, that’s not really all that new.  There was a mini-trend of separated tier cakes in the 80s, and it seems to continue to this day (you might remember Christen’s Read More
