Decorating With Sugar Doilies

Jason and Andie, artisans from at Andies Specialty Sweets have created these unique sugar doilies to decorate your wedding cake. No plastic bride and groom for this cake! Instead add delicate doilies spun from sugar and ready to add to your cake! A cake you and your guests will fall in love with!

Photo from same link as above.

The owners say: "At Andie's, we take the greatest care in producing superb, hand crafted, decorative candy and cake embellishments, with individual customer care. Our sweets are different -they're hand designed, hand crafted, small batch, hand poured, and artistically handled. Our goal is not just a pretty edible, not just a palatable one either, but one that elicits a response, and is pleasurable to all the senses."

They have certainly succeeded here!

Cute Cake Toppers

Top off your cake with the cutest cake toppers I've seen in awhile! These two cuties grace the top of this unusual cake.

Though I'm not sure I love the 'circles' on the cake, the bride and groom are to die for! Ok, I understand if you're not into 'cute,' but if you are, and want a bridal couple to grace the top of your cake who look like they're blissfully happy, choose these two.

Yes I'll call the "cuties" I just can't resist.  And it describes them so well! What do you think?

Does anyone know where to purchase them? If you do, let me know, happy to add the link. If you're the company who makes them I'll incorporate the link into the post. If you're the bridal couple and you have a web site, let me know if you'd like to linked to as well!

Let them eat cake!

Metallic Gold Wedding Cake

A metallic gold wedding cake! I so love metallic cakes don't you? Who doesn't love gold? This is your cake! A golden quadruple layer wedding cake cinched with a pink flower and feather (and a rhinestone brooch!) The cake is golden fondant by Sweet Art Bakery, photo by Katie Cassidy Photography. It's wrapped in a chiffon and lace sash. The cake was designed by Emily Riggs Bridal. This cake is both romantic and beautiful, what bride could ask for more!

For more metallic look cakes with a variety of looks see: Metallic Gold Wedding Cake, or Gold Leaf Wedding Cake Extravagant and Elegant or Gold Embossed Wedding Cake or Dessert Gold.

Finding the perfect wedding cake is never easy. There are just too many choices and too many cake toppers out there! How to choose? And what flavor?  You could put on ten pounds just taste testing them all!
I was at a tasting (yes, another one!) a few months ago at The Ballrooms of Boothwyn in Boothwyn PA run by Lia's Catering. One of the bakers there had a pumpkin flavored cake--totally to die for! If you are planning an autumn wedding it would be the perfect choice!

In general I prefer cakes without fondant icings but sometimes the designs just call for it and won't work using any other base. If I'm choosing a basic flavor I like pound cake with either raspberry or lemon filling in it. (I know, not too exciting, but I want cake guests will enjoy eating!)

Whether you like the gold, the silver or the bronze looks, there is sure to be a metallic wedding cake that is perfect for you.

But the metallic look shown is so... appealing! I want it. Look through the metallic choices and see if one if for you. Whatever your choice, take the time to look at the metallic cakes, and fall in love! Even if they just end up on your Pinterest board!
