mmm… cake.

May 23rd, 2011 by     

I’ve narrowed my cake design choices down to two. Are you ready?

Option #1: a mix between Cake A and Cake B.

So, our cake would have the little pearl dots lining the bottom of the cake, the swirls above the fondant ribbon. No flowers (we’ll perch our love birds on top). And instead of having a fondant ribbon, we’d have a ribbon bow, with a medium-sized flower on top. Like this:

I hope you’re not hungry

… because you’re going to be, after reading this post.

It’s all about cake. I LOVE cake. I love cake almost as much as I love chocolate. And the cupcake trend? Totally cute. But wedding cake to me is the second thing I think about when you say “wedding” (“princess dress” is the first thing). And so, ladies (and gents?), I present to you my cake inspiration.

Wowza. Just look at the details on this cake. I love the flower arrangement.

Dessert Dilemma

Life is uncertain.  Eat dessert first.  ~Ernestine Ulmer

It’s no secret with my friends and family that I am a fan of dessert! After my dress this was the next item on my list…my initial thoughts were to do many different varieties of sweet treats – a dessert bar.

White on White Details for my Green and Blue Wedding

March 28th, 2011 by     

My wedding colors are pale green and blue. Obviously since it is a wedding, there will be white involved… especially since this bride loves pearls!

So I’ve decided to include a lot of white on white details to make things look more clean and romantic… and to not push the color too much.

Here are just a couple of my white on white details that I’ve been working on:

A Tasty Treat to Cool Your Guests Off

In lieu of a dessert party or a wedding cake, what about ice cream??  There are actually a few ice cream shops that own trucks or carts that can cater for your wedding or any private party.  Who doesn’t love ice cream on a hot summers day?  Now I’m craving ice cream….sweet creamy goodness…mmmm.   If my friends brought this to their wedding or party…I would definitely be the first one in line! =)

Rate the Cake!

March 15th, 2011 by     

The bakery sent us home with three 6″ cakes in white, chocolate and marble with the assurance that we could also sample their other three flavors at another time (when they had notice that we would want samples, they were able to provide us with samples on the spot surprisingly). The other flavors were spice, almond, and yellow, which weren’t on our list.

Since the samples were fairly large and not expected with called Lilac Dude’s parents and said, “hey we have dessert!” That won us a lunch invitation to a possible place to have a rehearsal dinner (which is a whole different blog post for another time).

The Cake Thing

March 14th, 2011 by     

I have been sketching wedding cakes and looking at pictures but when it came down to it, Lilac Dude and I didn’t have a whole lot of direction on cake.

All I knew is that Lilac Dude wanted an impressive cake and preferred that it be tall. I knew that I liked round tiers and white icing.

We decided to go to the bakery where we had a discount due to our hall rental for a first visit. We were impressed by the fact that the baker was enthusiastic about doing whatever we wanted, she liked doing new things and was able to send us home with cake samples! After talking logistics about servings and tiers we had much more direction.

Cake Tasting: When You Can’t Choose Just One

February 24th, 2011 by     

Apple Sauce and I just got back from our first cake tasting! We met with the very lovely and talented Betsy at Nine Cakes, a boutique cake studio in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, and we were pretty much sold as soon as we walked in. In fact, before we even tasted anything, Apple Sauce whispered to me, “I like her. Let’s give her money!”

Let Them Lick Cake!

February 11th, 2011 by     

If you haven’t guessed by now, I love cake in all its delicious and tempting forms. While my highest love and devotion for cupcakes cannot be overshadowed, I did come across a new and pretty sweet treat (pun intended): The Cake Lollipop. I first learned of these little yummies when a client of mine dropped them off as a gift to me after my company printed her cookbook. After a little research – I learned these babies are not only easy to make, but they’re making quite an impact on current wedding trends.

An Ode to the Cupcake

February 4th, 2011 by     

I’m not an ice cream person, I never have been. I don’t even really crave chocolate, my candy of choice has always been of the gummy variety. But, as far back as I can remember, I have LOVED cupcakes. Doesn’t matter the flavor, or the icing-to-cake ratio (although I prefer more cake than most) – I just love them.
