Cake! Cake! Glorious Cake!

oh no, don’t tell me it’s another wedding related post.

to be fair, cakes are delicious and amazing – SO – i hope you don’t mind that this post kind of has to do with the wedding. because the thought of the cakes makes me very excited. if everything goes according to plan there will be more than one cake. but not fancy tiered wedding cakes, just a few normal sized yet wonderfully tasty cakes to suit everyone’s taste. and by everyone i mean the two of us because we simply can’t choose.

salted caramel… vanilla buttercream… tres leches… maybe something with strawberries in it… or perhaps a pavlova cake?! the options are endless! but here are some i like the look and sound of.

  1. The chocolate cake with mascarpone frosting looks oh so yummy and makes me wanna bake right away! Thank you for the yummy inspiration and good luck finding the right cake!

  2. I love these posts! Please don’t tone down the beautiful wedding planning if you want to share it with us.

  3. this is what I’m doing for my wedding too! Plus all of my aunts are making their famous desserts (i.e. apple pie, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies).

  4. Looking at a cake post at lunch when I don’t have a piece of cake (or even a cookie) is pretty much torturous. I’d want to do the same sort of cake set up (several different normal sized cakes) at my own wedding.

  5. oh. my. goodness. these cake pictures are killer. i love cake, i just wish they were easier to make at home and in a smaller scale. i’d be like a mad cake baker. i’m always scouring the city for the best cake and sometimes when i’m jonesing late at night for some, i go to bed disappointed because bakeries close early.

    i guess i should disclose i’m pregnant and therefore have the right to such complaints?

  6. My god so utterly pin-worthy – every one of them. Apparently ‘naked cakes’ – i.e. layered cakes with no icing on the outside – are very hip right now. Yeah, I’d eat one.
    And we want to know EVERY DETAIL of your wedding plans. Spare us none!

  7. Omg cakes. And please don’t apologize for the wedding related stuff–if you feel like sharing I’m more than happy to read! I’m sure your impeccable taste will carry over, and wedding stuff is some of the prettiest! Oh, and congrats :)

  8. good grief i had to stop myself from licking the screen! but now, i have some cakes/recipes to make for a rainy day, so thank you! i’m excited to see future wedding posts :)

  9. that’s such a great idea to have more than one cake – variety is definitely the spice of life! can’t wait to hear which ones you pick :)

  10. I got married in December – and asked a bunch of our friends (who love to bake), to make cakes and desserts, rather than opting for the traditional singular ‘wedding cake’. The cake table turned out to be a sumptuous spectacle! It was a feast for eyes and mouths.
