Wedding Wednesday

January 19, 2011

It's time to think cake!

We've decided that extensive research will be needed to ascertain the perfect balance between flavors and textures in our ideal subject. It's a good thing we have a whole eight months of experimentation to look forward to! Indeed, last night we whipped up a burnt sugar cake that, while delicious, was not quite up to our standards of durability.

Bummer. Guess we'll just have to keep trying.

Anyway, we're leaning toward the idea of a smaller, cream colored cake, accompanied by lots of colorful little cupcakes. And, of course, we'll bake them all ourselves (with a little help from our friends).

These are some images of cake-y inspiration that I've found around the internet. The last one, of course, is my favorite. I really like the idea of decorating with herbs, daisies, and dandelions.


  1. The last one would be perfect for your September wedding. I like the way the herbs are used.

    A main cake and cupcakes for the guests, is a smart move.

    I am enjoying your Wedding Wednesdays!

  2. I vote for the last one too! Beautiful!

  3. I love number two and six they are so sweet and if a cake can be called cozy and romantic then that is what I think when I see them:)

  4. I'm getting married here in about a month, and you've just made me realize I have no idea what our cake looks like (I let the fiancee run the show on all that). But It seems I now have an opinion on cake, after looking at all these ... great.

  5. Oh my goodness. These works of art are just luscious.

  6. Haha, Rich. Ignorance is bliss? :)

    I'm glad you all like the last one, too. It's definitely our inspiration.

  7. The last one is great, you might want to check out the wedding from the bloggers at they did it all diy, and it turned out wonderful.
