Welcome back everyone, and welcome to any of the newly engaged brides out there! Hope you all had a great break and got to relax a ton. Me? Not so much….you always have hopes to accomplish so much, and then all those plans fall to the wayside. But oh well, such is life!
Thought we could start the week off bright with the latest in the cool cake series with this yellow striped stunner from Betsy at Nine Cakes. I thought the imperfect stripes on these vases with the colorblocked yellow were a great translation to cake, and Betsy proved me right again! Gotta love that little addition of asymmetry…it would be great for a laid-back, colorful wedding!

I’ve been spotting some of my favorite foods posing as wedding cakes lately. Who doesn’t want a donut tower?! The jist is simple: take your favorite food, stack it on top of each other and boom, you’ve got a cake. For those averse to baking (ahem, me!), it’s the perfect solution.
- Croquembouche is a traditional French wedding cake make of pastry balls and caramel. This one is the easy version: donut holes!
- Rice Krispy cake. All about my childhood favorite.
- Macaron cake. Build them in different shades to add to the decor of your wedding.
- Donut cake tower.Try making them in different flavors so your guests can experiment.
