Have your cake & eat it too

Traditionally, we have come a long way since the origins of wedding cake. No longer only white, single tiers of bread, the wedding cake is one of the main features of any bride's {and groom's} big day.

Currently, I am no where near ready to select my wedding cake. But that doesn't mean I don't like browsing through endless cake photographs, they're just too beautiful to pass up. These cakes are fresh and unique, both modern and traditional. Obviously custom made, try to mix and match colors and patterns to create your own eatable piece of art. And, as always, be inspired by something beautiful just as these cakes were inspired by turn of the century jewelry, art, textiles and nature. 

Now, considering that I don't even like cake, I have no idea what we're going to do when the time comes to choose's hard to imagine passing up these gorgeous creations!  Besides, you can't skimp on tradition, right?

  1. I'm wondering... which one is your favorite? It would be hard to pick!

  2. hmmmm, I think #12 if I had to choose one. I know it's not the most elaborate but it's the most "me". If I were going for something more fancy I would have to say #3 or #28. What's yours?!

  3. I am glad to visit your blog. I am happy to find your distinguished way of writing the post. Thanks for posting. . .
