Sweet On You

Since giving up sweets for Lent, I have them on the brain! So in the spirit of all of our Spring wedding posts lately, I didn’t want to leave out the sweetest part- wedding cake! There are many ways of styling your cake these days, but here are some of our favorite recent Spring cakes.  We adorned this simple and textured cake with wedding blooms (tulips and ranunculus) and greenery to give it some depth.

Jim Smeal crafted sugar hydrangeas and other wedding blooms for a simple and sophisticated centerpiece in the dinner tent. And, instead of using their custom monogram on the cake we made a runner for the cake table.

Once doesn’t think “green” icing would appear appetizing, but when done in the palest shade and adorned with fabulous flowers, it becomes chic! Cake by Jim Smeal.

For a traditional bride wanting a white wedding cake, handmade sugar flowers in all of the spring blooms used at the wedding, gives a statement ruffle almost too pretty to cut. Cake by Jim Smeal.

For a glamorous gold and cream wedding, intricate details like lace designs and frilly flowers pulled from the bride’s dress were the perfect patterns for the showcase cake. Cake by Jim Smeal.
