All-White Wedding Cake


We’ve been featuring a lot of very colorful cakes lately, so I thought it would be nice to showcase a cake that was simple and beautiful.

Which brings us to today’s all-white wedding cake.

This ivory tower is a four-tier cake decorated with white chocolate fondant. Yes, that’s right. Even though it’s an all-white wedding cake there’s still chocolate involved!

The white chocolate fondant is elegantly pleated, giving the cake the look of a wedding dress. 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!

Bow Wedding Cake

McBryde-Dorion Wedding

It occurred to me that it has been awhile since I featured a straight up classic wedding cake that wasn’t consumed by dignitaries and former Spice Girls.  So today will be that day.

This lovely cake is a replica of a gift box.  This is the sort of gift that I like the receive..three tiers and completely edible.  In lieu of a topper, Read More


All wrapped up in bows..

Wrapped Up in bows

I love presents. I think most women do, yes?

What do I love more than presents? Edible presents! Maybe that was not then intended inspiration for this cake..but I think it suits it perfectly! This is a traditional three tiered round cake. The layers alternate between gorgeous fondant stripes and polka dots. On top is a gorgeous bow that would make Martha and all her pretty bow making glory envious. Seriously..I am the girl who has to buy pre-made bows at Christmas..because a). Who has time to make their own bows? and b). Even if I tried they’d never look that good. So the fact that this bow is made out of fondant..well that knocks my socks right off my feet! Polka dots are always such a tricky decoration to master as well. The spacing between this dots is perfect..this calls for a baker to have a very steady hand!

This cake was made by Dianna Tornow of Your Kind of Cakes in Aiken, SC. I have actually been to a wedding with a Dianna Tornow cake before..they taste just as good as they look!

Tiffany’s Wedding Cake


After a long weekend filled with work, work and oh..more work I want to start this week off right. With a little quote of inspiration from one Holly Golightly.

“Well, when I get it the only thing that does any good is to jump in a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s, then – then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name!”

I have to agree. There is something about Tiffany’s and their signature Robin’s Read More
