Gold and White Wedding Cake

gold and white cake3

As we creep through winter gray hues of January it seems like the perfect time to think about a shiny, metallic wedding cake!

If you’re looking to add some glitz and glamour to your big day, a metallic wedding cake might be the perfect way to do just that!

It doesn’t have to be over-the-top or garish, but even a slight metallic accent takes a plain white cake to a whole new level. Read More

Deep Brown Winter Wedding Cake

Winter Wedding Cake

I thought I'd feature something a little different today.

You should know that I love the idea of a winter wedding. Actually, I think that for me, I prefer fall and winter over spring and summer anyday for a wedding. I think I love the minimalistic design elements of these seasons, and the rich, warm colors. And there's something about finding the beauty in a sparse landscape that really appeals to me.

This cake is like Read More


Pumpkin Wedding Cake

Pumpkin Wedding Cake

I'm a little late today, Guys and Girls. Front loading your week workwise and an 8+ hour roadtrip (with two little kids – :-O ) will tend to do that to you.

But I'm super happy to be settled into my temporary digs, and ready to share with you some Sweet and Pretty over the next few days, starting with this adorable cake.

Don't you just love fall and pumpkins?  And while we're all Read More

Autumn Wedding Cake with Gold Leaves

Fall Gold Leaf Cake

I spied this wedding cake and just had to share it with you.

We love fall weddings, don’t we?  That hint of chill in the area with the glorious warmth of leaves changing, setting hills and fields ablaze with their beautiful colors.  But when you distill and dress up the essence of all of those colors, you come away with gold.  If silver is for winter, then gold is surely for fall.

Cake for Your Wedding: What Inspires You?

Rustic Autumn Wedding Cake

Congratulations!  You’re engaged!  Now, get to it, because you’ve got about 8,972 details to attend to.

Now, the one that we’re most interested in happens to be your cake.  Because, well, we love cake.

But, there’s just one leetle problem.  There are just so. many. choices out there.

So, how are you to pick how it should look, or what it should taste like?

We think we can help with that.  You see, inspiration lies EVERYWHERE.  Think about what you love.  And build a cake around it.

Your favorite shared hobby. So you’re marrying this guy, right?  Well, we’re going to assume that you have some common interests since you’re planning to spend your lives together.  Would they lend themselves to a cake?  We’ve seen cakes with cyclists and Harry Potter, with books and scrabble boards.  If you’d like to say, “Hi, World.  This is who we are, and this is some of the cool stuff we like to do together!” – well, why don’t you let your cake say it instead?

Your dress.  His shoes. We lurve this idea.  You spend a fortune on your dress because you love the details, right?  Well, how fun would it be to have the very same lace or trim, or design element on your cake?  Or did he just buy the COOLEST CONVERSE EVER to wear for the wedding?  If you take a picture or a fabric swatch when you meet with your baker to discuss details, you should have no trouble replicating some cool aspect of your dream-come-true wedding dress.

The seasons and surroundings. Getting married when there’s sumptuous fall foliage surrounding you?  Perfect!  The crisp scents and sights of fall can lend excellent inspiration for your special cake – picture a towering confection, enrobed in a glossy ganache finish, and trimmed with beautiful sugar paste leaves tinted to match the colors outdoors.  Or maybe your special day will take place on a beach.  Few and far between are the designs and curlycues that can compete with the natural beauty of seashells and starfish.

So my advice?  Don’t flip through thousands of pictures on Google or Martha Stewart.  Because you will be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of all that is gorgeous and out there.  Start at the beginning.  Start with yourselves, and work out from there.  In my opinion, that’s the very best way to make the wedding – and the wedding cake – reflect who you are as a couple.
