Icing on the Cake

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Yes, it's my weekly "all things wedding" post... isn't it sad that this is thg highlight of my week, as if I need ANOTHER reason to stalk wedding blogs and websites??
Ahhh the infamous wedding cake... some people {we wont say who} don't think wedding cakes are important... and since everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I tend to disagree! I'm obsessed with all things sweet and can't think of a better way to indulge at a wedding than to sample a tasty cake--I swear I can tell you what each wedding cake looked and tasted like from each wedding I have been to, so I think I am a bit of a connoisseur  in this area-haha!
Tomorrow, Jeff and I are headed to meet with my potential cake lady herself... identity to be named once we finalize the details, but I have met her a few times {at bridal shows and private parties} and am absolutely blown away with her creativity!! This is one of the things I am most excited to discuss =)
Now, onto some of my most favorite cakes:
Pink Flowers Cake by Nicole Ha
White Cake via The Cake Girls
Brown and Cream Cake via Baking Arts
Green Modern Cake via Project Wedding
White Swirl Fondant Cake via The Knot
Vintage Brooch Fondant Cake via Vanilla Bake Shop

  1. All of those cakes are gorgeous.

    On my way to weddings I always wonder if there will be a cake, if so what kind, how will it look, etc. So IMO cakes are very important too!

  5. I love them all and I want to eat them all. :) I too was obsessed with my wedding cake and LOVED the way it turned out. I used some of my grandmother's vintage brooches as decoration on each tier and it was stunning. I see it all the time now - but two years ago no one had really done it. The Knot actually featured our cake. It was so perfect!

  15. Cake is one of the things most people remember about weddings. They remember if they thought it was pretty/creative and they remember if it was good. I swear there is nothing worse than tasting a bed cake at someone's wedding since that is one of the things that I look forward to! haha - Good luck finding the perfect cake! Can't wait to see what it looks like:)
