We’re not sure if it’s a pre-spring sweet tooth a post-Valentine’s Day crash, but this week on Pinterest, we were all about cakes. And surprisingly, we noticed a trend with our cake pins. Lately we are all about the sweet and simple.
Back to Basics. We couldn’t help but appreciate the surprising simplicity of this wedding cake: white, two tiers, smooth fondant, and minimal extras. In an age of giant cake competitions and a pop culture craze for ultimate cakes, we kind love how classic and simple this cake is.
A Cake Ball Cake. This cake upped the ante and went for a fun double effect, cake with cake balls. And though the concept might sound a little strange, we’re loving the effect. The subtle ombre and the awesome sense of texture keep it interesting, but not the slightest bit overworked. Now we’re just wondering how difficult that cake is to cut!
Perfect for a Petite Fete. Though we love a big party, we can also appreciate a smaller, more intimate gathering. And if that’s the case, why mess with a multi-tier cake? Go for the unexpected yet simple. The decadent chocolate pour adds just the right touch of pizzazz, and we think this cake would be perfect for an afternoon celebration or a romantic garden party. Love this cake, but not quite sure if it’s “wedding” enough? Think about it for a bridal shower, family luncheon, or morning after brunch treat!
