You Can Have Your Cake, and Eat it Too!

In addition to the flowers at a wedding reception, the cake is always one of the things I scout out. There is just something so astonishing about multiple tiers of sweetness, adorned in such an elegant way! I love how the look of one cake can be just so different from the next.

At many of the weddings we’ve designed, there have been some absolutely fabulous wedding cakes! One of my favorite cakes was created by the incredibly talented Sylvia Weinstock. In fact, Sylvia featured this cake in her book, Sensational Cakes.

The detail work was created to mirror the embroidering on the bride’s fabulous gown, and the sugar flowers coordinated perfectly with the centerpieces on the table.

Mark Soliday of Confectionery Designs is known for creating the most flawless cakes. His creations are always breathtaking. This next cake was no exception. Such a unique concept, the lines of this cake were just so elegant. It looked spectacular at this OceanCliff Reception.

Sitting on a pretty pedestal at a wedding we designed at Belle Mer in Newport, RI was this fabulous creation. The cake looked just perfect against the chic white lines at the venue. The sweet pleats in this cake were just adorable.

Fall Has Landed Upon Us

Fall is my favorite season. There is nothing like a slice of homemade apple pie fresh from the oven with a heaping scoop of ice cream melting in all the nooks and crannies. Let’s not forget about pumpkins and gourds, but I must say that best of all, autumn brings some of the most gorgeous flowers. The rich oranges, cranberries, and golden yellows are just so warm and intimate; add a dash of flickering candlelight and it will create the most romantic glow.

Fall is such a spectacular season for a happy couple to exchange their vows. Thinking about this magnificent season reminds me of a couple of weddings that we designed at one of my favorite venues, Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. Take a look of some of the fabulous images. What do you think?
