Flashback Friday – Blake Lively’s Wedding Cake


We all know that celebrity wedding cakes can sometimes be a bit over-the-top and audacious. But not this one. I love the shabby chic simpleness of Blake Lively’s wedding cake, which was part of her Martha Stewart-styled wedding to Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Reynolds last year.

The cake was the centerpiece of a dessert table that was full of the couple’s favorite sweet treats including mini strawberry shortcakes, lemon meringue tartlets, and s’mores bars. Read More


Ombre Red Velvet Wedding Cake

Ombre Red Velvet Wedding Cake

From the pages of Martha Stewart, we find this new take on a much loved classic, Red Velvet Cake.

Everybody knows that the BEST red velvet cakes must be covered in a thick layer of cream cheese frosting, right?  I mean, you do know that?  Well, that doesn’t leave a lot of wiggle room for creativity on the outside of your cake…so this baker, Francina Stewart of One Girl Cookies in Brooklyn, took to the inside to set her cake apart.  The outside is covered with Read More


Yellow and Blush Wedding Cake with Rose Petals

Yellow Wedding Cake

I think rose petals are so beautiful. Maybe it’s old fashioned of me, but they’re so ruffly, and dainty.  They smell good and even feel good, with their soft, matte-velvet texture.

I think this cake is just so pretty, don’t you?  It mimics that beautiful yellow-meets-blush look that you can only find on roses.  At first, I thought the embellishment around that bottom tier was Read More


Springerle Wedding Cake

Springerle Wedding Cake


I know, I know. I start WAY too many posts this way. I guess it’s an ÜBER good thing that I write a wedding cake blog, eh? 😉 And speaking of über things, how about this gorgeous Springerle Wedding Cake, courtesy of über-fabulous Martha Stewart?

Do you know about springerle? Well (she says in her mom tone), you should. Springerle is normally a shortbread-type cookie, which is made by pressing the dough into a mold, and then baking it. It’s a Read More


Wedding Bells Wedding Cake

We still say that wedding bells are ringing…but when did you actually last hear some?

Well, even if churches don’t still come with nifty bell towers (and lots of people don’t even get married in churches these days), it’s still a quaint thought.  And this cake celebrates that notion bee-autifully.

Two square tiers, flawlessly covered in white fondant and trimmed with an edge of tiny white dots are then embellished with bells, cut out from more fondant, painted with edible gold dust, and Read More


Confetti Wedding Cake

Confetti Wedding Cake

Shouldn’t a wedding be, first and foremost, a celebration?  And shouldn’t a celebration involve lots and lots of confetti?!

It’s ever so much better than rice, in my opinion.

Does anyone ever throw rice anymore?  Or for that matter, is anyone using birdseed these days?  We used these adorable rice paper hearts confetti, courtesy of Read More


‘How Do I Love Thee?’ Pink Wedding Cake

Sonnet 43 Elizabeth Barrett Browning Cake

This is the part of the blog where I confess that I am a total English Lit geek.  Like, so much, that I studied it for four years, and contemplated grad school and teaching.  However, other opportunities presented themselves (like making, and then writing about, wedding cakes) that were far more family friendly…and here I am.

Where was I?

Oh yes.  My deep and abiding love for the British written word.  Well, any written word, actually.  As long as Read More


Egads, It’s a Cake by Martha Stewart!

  1. Say ‘egads,” and
  2. Feature a cake by the goddess of weddings, Martha Stewart.

Today my dreams come true..because LOOK!  Read More
