Cakes, Cakes, and More Cakes!

I have a giant sized sweet tooth.  Always have, probably always will.  My nickname as a child was cookie monster thanks to me sniping cookies at bible camp.  So it comes as no surprise that I am excited about the wedding cake and have many ideas about the perfect one.  Cameron's very talented aunt is going to make our wedding cake for us and she does amazing piping detail.  We are going with a buttercream cake (fondant is icky!), and I want beautiful piping detail in the same color.  Here are a few cakes that have caught my eye recently and are serving as ideas for our wedding cake.  Enjoy :)

Absolutely amazing!  This was featured on the blog Realistic Wedding.  I love the contemporary piping on a very classic cake.

I really like the ribbon at the base of the tier.  I would really like to have pewter ribbon to match the bridesmaids dresses at the base of each tier on our cake.  You can find this one at The Twisted Sifter.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this cake!!!  It may not be perfect for our wedding, but I would love to have it at something... maybe a bridal shower.  I just love how the piping detail looks like lace ribbon swirling around the cake :) Ahh... be still my heart!  See this and other spring wedding cakes at Wedding Cakes.

I love the fan piping detail on this cake and I have seen it on other cakes in yellow and white on white, which match our color scheme.  Check this one out at Elizabeth Anne Designs.

I love how each of the layers has a different piping detail, and I love the space for flowers in between each of the tiers.  I have also heard that not placing the tiers directly on top of one another makes the cake easier to cut... it is a win-win.  Find this cake at Cake Walk.

Here are just a few ideas that are inspiring our future wedding cake right now.  Send me pictures and ideas if you have any!


  1. Mmmmmm you know my love of cake, and all of these are so pretty! I can't wait to see what kind of cake you and Cameron will have at YOUR wedding!

  2. i love the cake with the fan detail ... so pretty you hardly want to eat it. Nah, scratch that thought, it's making me hungry!
    Great blog!
