Coral and Blue Nautical Wedding Cake

Coral and Blue Nautical Wedding Cake

I love sweet and simple. And today’s cake is just that!

Cake Goodness in California is the bakery behind this sweet nautical-themed cake, which was featured on Style Me Pretty, and was captured by Shannon Lee Images.  And I have to say that I love how they incorporated so much into such a little cake! This cake was for a beach wedding in Malibu – hello dream wedding location! – and as the wedding incorporated nautical elements, it was important to carry the theme through to the cake. The blue and white stripes on the lower tier evoke that beach club, nautical feel, and the fondant rope around the base of the top tier really completes the look. But they took it one step further and “iced” it with a cake stand that incorporated a blue and white striped ribbon. I also love how they stepped out of the traditional yellow and blue nautical color scheme and went with blue and coral. The coral dahlia on top is fun and unique and sweet! And I love that they incorporated their monogram on the top tier.

To sum it up pretty much everything about this cake is perfect!



Let Them Eat Cake: Sunday Round-Up for June 3, 2012


Heya Hiya! How’s your weekend going? Mine is super fantabulous.

We have officially started summer here in our household (I know what the calendar says. Whatevs.) With no more schoolwork, and the beach beckoning (not to mention that fab-o hammock) it’s hard to act like it isn’t the Second Most Wonderful Time of the Year. So onto picnics and lazy days and flower picking. Yes please.

Nautical Mini Wedding Cakes

Nautical Mini Wedding Cakes

Adorable! That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw these Mini Wedding Cakes on Pinterest.

I have a slight obsession with miniature baked goods…I’m not sure if it makes me feel less guilty about eating something “unhealthy” or if I just like the idea of miniature things. Either way I love mini cakes, mini cupcakes, cake pops (they may not be miniature but they are small), and petit fours. And while most miniature goodies are not decorated elaborately today’s featured minis are incredible! The attention to detail is amazing…I mean look at the rope border on the tiers of the cake, the bronze anchor, the flowers, and the stripes! Can you imagine the time it took to perfect the details and make these look so good?

In my opinion these mini wedding cakes would be perfect for a dessert table or even as a wedding favor…but we want to know what you think about the whole mini cake idea?

If you love the nautical look of these mini cakes, check out this nautical wedding cake and this nautical cake topper we have featured!

Thanks, too, to our good friend Beth from Cakes by Beth for letting us know that these are the splendid work of The Caketress of Toronto!

Nautical Love Wedding Cake

Nautical love wedding cake (compressed)

A couple of months ago, I talked about the fabulous Cakes By Beth and her equally fabulous 2012 Cake Collection. I promised more gorgeousness from Beth, didn’t I? Well, today is the day, Cake Fans!

While I absolutely ADORED Beth’s Gothic Roses and Birdcage Cake (especially right in the middle of Downton Abbey Fever hitting us here in the States in FULL force), I really, really fell in love with this Nautical Love Wedding Cake immediately.  Oh, and I can tell you exactly why, no doubt.  If you’ve spent anytime here on A Wedding Cake Blog, you’ve figured out that I am a Florida girl, and lover of all things beachy and water-related.  My happy place is staring out at the Big Blue Ocean.  I would SUPER be that bride with seashells adorning her wedding invitations (in fact, I was.)  So my love for this cake was instantaneous.  Love at first sight.  That Beth used my favorite color – blue – and lots of shades of it, with awesomeness STRIPES and a very cool rope motif…well, it was icing on the cake.  (I had to.  I had to go there.)

And one of my favorite things about the collection?  Every cake had corresponding cookies or cupcakes, which demonstrate an extension of each theme brilliantly.  I love LOVE the marbelized heart!
