We’ve had the pleasure of working together with Lauren on many weddings. So we were especially excited when she agreed to be interviewed for Bride & Blossom’s Women Paving the Aisle series. To our surprise, we learned that Lauren had a career as an interior designer before starting her business. Here, she talks about her decision to go back to culinary school, what goes into to making her dazzling floral adorned wedding cakes, and how she stays creatively inspired. Read More
A wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without a show stopping cake; the first piece cut as a newlywed couple, shared with joy, love and laughter. The cake is displayed for all to admire throughout the night until the treasured cake cutting ceremony where its details, design and individuality are greatly notice and appreciated. The evolution of the traditional wedding cake has progressed from a simple sheet cake to now offering multiple layers, tiers and decadent accents. One of the newest trends in the wedding industry is not only making flowers out of edible pieces such as frosting and sugar, but also featuring real flowers on the cake. This trend is hitting the scene in a great way, and is one that we can’t believe took so long to get here! The idea of incorporating your bridal flowers onto your cake ties the theme together beautifully and is a great way to ensure a one-of-a-kind picturesque confection. Read More
Is there anything better than flowers and cake? We’re pretty sure there isn’t. Coordination between your florist and your cake designer can be a great way to keep continuity throughout your decor, and make your flowers a part of your reception. Below are some of our favorite cakes we’ve collaborated on, and some inspiration we’ve picked up along the way!
1. The Naked Cake
Gone are the days when white buttercream and/or fondant were a wedding cake requirement. The “naked cake,” made popular by Momofuku Milk Bar, is at once rustic, on-trend, and ultramodern.
Succulents are all the rage right now, popping up in centerpieces, bridal bouquets, and wedding decor — but this is the first time we’ve seen one on a cake! We’re so inspired by this simple, trend-forward cake.
