This Vanilla Blackberry-Mascarpone Cake from Sweetapolita is both visually perfect and sounds absolutely delicious. I’ve always loved a wedding cake that isn’t trying too hard to be a wedding cake. The gradual ombré look of the cake could also work with any wedding or party color scheme, but the dark blackberry shade here, tied into a pastel lavender and a minty turquoise is just beautiful.
I adore everything about Valentine’s Day – the colors (red and pink, what’s not to love?), the desserts (candy, cakes, and cookies, oh my!), and the outpouring of unabashed love. This cake will probably be the first of many Valentine’s-related Glitter Weddings posts, because I’m a total ham for the holiday. Enjoy!
Wedding cakes are beautiful, and also really expensive. And let’s face it, gorgeous or not, the most important factors fall somewhere between cake and frosting. I want a delicious cake, first and foremost. Even when designing my own wedding cake, I felt oddly uninspired. There were so many stunning options but the choices were overwhelming. In the end, we went for a white frosted hand-piped cake with fresh flowers covering the top of the cake: simple and pretty … and most importantly, yummy.
These adorable DIY cake decorations are meant to spruce up even the simplest of cakes (and side note: store bought birthday/wedding cake may be one of the most delicious inventions of all time. I kid you not.)
Because sometimes a rich chocolate cake is all you need …
Have you been to a cake-testing yet? Weren’t they all amazing? I think the hubby and I liked at least ten-to-twenty flavor combinations. We were overwhelmed, and slightly nauseous. But sometimes, when it really comes down to it, what’s classic, tastes amazing, and resonates well with the guests, it’s a traditional chocolate cake.
