Rainbow Wedding Cake

rainbow cake

I saw a news report this week about a rare quadruple rainbow that was spotted over New York State. As a big fan of rainbows I thought that would be pretty cool to see.

And then I found this rainbow dot wedding cake and my week was made!

I love this wedding cake so very much. It’s fun and whimsical and pretty much screams “spring!” in a refined way, of course.

The rainbow on the cake is formed by “dots” of icing – starting with white at the top and going through all the colors of the rainbow including pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

You’re guaranteed an awesome wedding reception with this cake!

Blackberry Wedding Cake

I’ve recently decided that I need to eat more fruit and fresh berries are currently on the top of my list of must-have snacks.

So, when I saw today’s wedding cake I just knew I had to share it with you because it looks delicious and it would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding.

This two-tier blackberry wedding cake is absolutely stunning thanks to the blackberries surrounding each tier.

The icing is also infused with crushed blackberries, giving it that gorgeous swirled look.

You could have any kind of cake inside, but I think something not-too-sweet would be best.

And of course, if blackberries aren’t your favorite, raspberries would be incredible on this cake and so would blueberries. Oh just imagine a lemon based cake and a light lemon icing infused with blueberries.

Oh that would be divine!

Ocean Inspired Wedding Cake

ocean cake

As we slowly inch closer and closer to summer it means we’re getting that much closer to beach season too.

And that means beach weddings and wedding cakes the remind us of the beach.

Like today’s wedding cake. It’s a subtle reminder of the things we love most about the beach – the surf and the sand.

The two-tiered cake features fondant icing that was hand-painted with water colors to mimic the blues of the ocean. I’m also loving the basket weave embellishment at the bottom of the cake.

This cake would be lovely at your beach wedding or at your beach themed wedding, if you happen to be having your nuptials nowhere near the water.

Spring Wedding Cake

It’s the first day of April and spring is in the air and that’s no joke!

As I look outside I’m spying buds on the trees and tulips popping out of the ground and I’m convinced that the warmer weather is here to stay.

Which means I just had to find a gorgeous wedding cake today with springtime flowers!

This cake is that perfect springtime confection.

I love the square tier mixed with the round tiers. It gives that cake an elegant and glamorous feel. And the simplicity of the floral design is just perfect.

The pink and green flowers with that touch of orange is all the spring is just perfection. A simple cake topper – maybe a single fresh flower that matches the others – would be ideal.

Strawberry Wedding Cake

One of my favorite summertime fruits is the strawberry! They’re sweet and perfect and can be used in so many ways, even on a wedding cake!

I love strawberry shortcake and today’s naked wedding cake reminds of that sweet treat.

This wedding cake was created with pound cake (of course!) and layers of mascarpone cream and strawberries. I think it might be my new favorite spring or summer wedding cake.

Imagine how perfect this cake would be at your late spring or early summer wedding – especially if you just happen to be planning an outdoor reception!

This is a “naked” wedding cake trend I would definitely like to see at a summer wedding!

St. Patrick’s Day Wedding Cake

shamrock cake

Tomorrow we’ll all be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and the wearing o’ the green, so today seemed like a good day to showcase a cake with little green shamrocks!

This lovely three-tier cake is iced with gorgeous rolled fondant which is decorated with sugar paste four leaf clovers.

I love that this cake is elegant yet whimsical and would be perfect for any bride looking for the Luck O’ the Irish on her wedding day!

And because the shamrocks are small and lovely you really could use this cake at any time of year, not just around St. Patricks’s Day.

One-tier Chocolate Wedding Cake

one tier cake

You ever have one of those days when you are craving chocolate?

Happens to me every day and today I decided to do something about it – I found the perfect one-tier chocolate wedding cake just for you!

I love the idea of serving a wedding cake iced with decadent chocolate icing. Why? Because your guests won’t be expecting it. They’ll be waiting for a cake with white icing and some pretty embellishments.

But chocolate cake? That’ll keep your guests talking about your wedding for a very long time!

And this one-tier cake is so pretty! The chocolate icing looks like roses and the gold and silver hearts as cake toppers adds that perfect amount of whimsy to the cake.

Of course, it is just a one-tier cake so it might be enough for you and your new spouse. I think this cake would be ideal as the cake you cut and then you could serve a bigger wedding cake (or even cupcakes!) to your guests.

Chocolate Wedding Cake

chocolate cake

If there’s one non-traditional wedding cake that I’ll always be a fan of it’s the chocolate wedding cake.

Everyone is expecting a cake with white icing, even if the cake inside is a variety of flavors. So why not wow your guests and surprise them with a chocolate frosted cake?

The cake flavors could vary – chocolate, marble, yellow – but to see a wedding cake frosted with gloriously delicious chocolate icing? That would be incredible!

This kind of cake would work best in the fall and winter – chocolate cake just doesn’t seem like a summer kind of cake.

And what I love most about chocolate cakes – aside from the frosting – is that they look stunning when adorned with fresh flowers. My favorites are dark red or dark pink flowers. It just makes the whole cake pop!

Blue and White Wedding Cake

blue and white cake

Since it seems as though winter is never going to end here in the Midwest, I find myself daydreaming about the beach nearly every day.

Which brings me to today’s cake.

This three-tier creation reminds me of my favorite beach – with white sand and beautiful blue water.

It’s quite lovely.

I love the dramatic navy blue of the bottom tier and how it fades into a seascape inspired second tier of blues and greens, finally ending in the white top tier.

The addition of the white roses on the gold background is the perfect amount of dramatic effect.

This cake would be gorgeous any time of year, but it would be stunning at a beach wedding.

White Wedding Cake with Flowers

white wedding cake

Since a good portion of the country is buried in white fluffy snow, it seemed appropriate to focus on an all-white wedding cake today.

Granted this cake is way prettier than any pile of snow – and it won’t make your toes cold either!

You know I’m a sucker for traditional all-white wedding cakes – call my old fashioned but I like traditional cakes. Sure a pop of color or a whimsical cake is good every now and then, but I like white cakes.

The fun part about an all-white wedding cake is you could surprise your guests with fun cake flavors – chocolate, red velvet, or even something crazy like blue velvet cake.

I really love the smooth, stark white icing on this cake paired with the white flowers. Just imagine how fun it would be to cut into the cake and find a non-traditional cake flavor!
