Lovella Loves…

Ombre cake. The universal love is no secret. There’s just something lovely about the degradation of pretty color coupled with confection. And while ombre icing is great and all, how about a little surprise inside? (After all, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right?) And an ombre cake needn’t be only for big occasions; it’s something you can replicate with time and maybe a little practice. Amanda Rettke, author of Surprise-Inside Cakes, has a wonderful how-to on her blog. Enjoy!

Tall Cakes Fit for Spring

Indulge in viewing these towering confections fit for a spring wedding. Height, even if only an illusion (with, say, stuffed florals between tiers), is the name of the game more than ever. We love the idea of building up instead of out. Do you suppose taller is better? We do. Enjoy! Credits: 1 Corina V.

The Stand: A Wedding Cake’s Costar

There are three components to a wedding cake display: 1.) The cake. 2.) The entire space in which it’s presented. 3.) The stand. The stand can be especially important if your cake isn’t a big statement in itself (hello, budget brides). It’s also another way that you can weave in your wedding’s theme with relative ease. We have some gorgeous inspiration for you today, from vintage silver stands, to iron custom-made creations, to those dripping in crystals. Enjoy!       Photo Credits: 1 Via Fash Boulevard 2 Love Is A Big Deal / Cake by Main Event Productions (via) 3 Danielle Gillett / Cake by The Buttery (via) 4 jason + anna photography / Stand by the bride’s father (via) 5 The Caketress. 6 TinyDot Photography (via) 7 KT Merry Photography (via) 8 Llanes Wedding Photography (via) 9 Duke Photography / Stand from Swag Antiques (via) 10 Andria Lo […]

Heavenly Couture Confections

It’s true, we’re a bit couture crazy over here. We love (and sell) couture bridal gowns, and we appreciate gorgeously-designed cakes and cupcakes. We also love any confections – cookies, French macarons, cake pops, chocolates or tarts – that are so finely-crafted that to call them anything but couture would be a crime. However, admittedly, sometimes all it takes is a clean, chic look, or one simple fabulous embellishment plucked on top, to make a sweet delight “couture” in our book. Our advice? Display accordingly! Scroll down for some sweet inspiration.     Photo/Baker Credits: 1 Elizabeth In Love / So Baked / Via *** 2 Impulse Photography 3 & 4 nbarrett photography / Layered Bake Shop / Via *** 5 The Caketress. 6 Elizabeth In Love / So Baked / Via *** 7 Big City Little Treats 8 Maki’s Cakes / Via *** 9 Vicky Starz / The Caketress […]

Couture Cupcakes

Couture: (adjective) being, having or suggesting the style, quality, etc., of a fashion designer; very fashionable: the couture look. With our Couture Cakes post serving as inspiration, today we have some fashionable cupcakes for your pretty eyes. A couture cupcake doesn’t necessarily have to involve a deep level of intricacy in its design, but it does have to entail that extra special touch. Sometimes all it takes is a flourish at the top, or an unexpected texture, to elevate a cupcake to a whole new fashionable level. Enjoy the eye candy below, brought to you by The Caketress, Cotton and Crumbs and more.     Photo Credits: 1 Corina V.
