What’s black and white with stripes and gold metallic all over? This amazing cake. I swear, wedding cakes have been taken to an entirely new level over at Wild Orchid Baking, where we spotted this brimming-with-beauty three tiered cake. If you’re looking for a black and white and gold wedding cake, we found one that looks too beautiful to eat. It has black and white stripes on the bottom, an entirely gold metallic middle, and a black and metallic polka dotted top. The flowers are the crowning touch! And, to not distract from its design, it is placed on a white cake pedestal. So chic!

We love to find unique wedding cake ideas to share on our wedding blog for two reasons: it’s delicious cake, obviously, and wedding cakes are so incredibly elegant. A wedding cake can be decorated with sugar flowers, fondant pearls, icing to create roses, give your wedding cake ruffles, or go totally naked, just to name a few. But a wedding cookie cake? Now that’s different! The lovely folks of Baked Ideas turned this unique concept into reality with utmost elegance. Who knew cookies + cake could be combined so beautifully?

Have you seen this show on BBC called Sherlock? It’s pretty amazing, in so far as detective shows go. When Lorna Lovecraft took her admiration for the series to a whole new level with a Sherlock inspired wedding shoot, the color palette, bouquets, lace-detailed everything fit right in. But what we loved most was the vintage silhouette cake which totally stole the show. We’ve seen an awesome silhouette wedding cake in the past, but this, um, takes the cake. Read on to see it!

Modern, fun-loving brides: this post is for you! Emma here… and I’ve gotta say, I love cake toppers of all shapes and sizes, but cut-out cake toppers with words are my absolute favorite! Instead of the traditional ‘Mr + Mrs’, monogram, or wedding date, think outside the box with phrases like ‘Eat Cake‘, ‘In This Forever‘, ‘Best Day Ever‘, ‘For Like Ever‘, or even, ‘Whoop Whoop‘. I mean, it’s the biggest day of your life, so you might as well spell out how you feel about making it official! We’ve browsed the interwebs and searched high + low to find the best cake toppers around. See which toppers made the cut and tell us which one you love!

Brides: are you having an outdoor wedding? Do you need to protect your wedding cake from the elements (and worst of all… bugs)? You’ve come to the right place. We received this recent Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Sara, who says, “Hi, Emmaline. I am getting married outdoors this summer and will have my wedding cake on display. How do I protect it from the elements (like dirt, bugs, and leaves) without it looking tacky?” Great question! After spending money on your gorgeous cake (and having it made to perfection), the last thing you want to do is have to cover it up. For outdoor weddings, though, it’s important to protect wedding cake from the elements. Read on to see four surefire ways to protect wedding cake outdoors without stripping it of its loveliness…
