Wow, talk about raising the bar on wedding donuts: this is the loveliest donut wedding cake we’ve ever seen! This heavenly three-tiered cake, made of donuts, was crafted by the pastry team at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore for a recent wedding. The cake consisted of beautifully iced donuts, surrounded by white dahlias, lavender roses, and pink carnations. And, what were they served with? Espresso shots, of course! We call that perfection from beginning to end.

Ah, the naked wedding cake: a simple, au naturale look that never goes out of style! Have you heard / seen / fallen in love with naked wedding cakes yet? You may after seeing this post! We’re uncovering six of our favorite naked wedding cakes to inspire you… and, we want to know: would YOU go naked?
Naked Wedding Cakes
First things first: what is a “naked wedding cake”? A naked wedding cake is a sponge-like cake that has icing on the top and inside its layers, without any icing on the sides. This style of cake allows emphasis to be placed on the exterior of the cake, revealing its layers. While it appears super easy-to-tackle, it’s actually more difficult than a traditional wedding cake. Since the layers are exposed, the cake itself must be free of imperfections. Also, since icing adds to the moistness of the cake, it must be extra-moist to begin with so it won’t dry out. When working with naked wedding cakes, you can use icing or cream cheese as layers — or get creative with delicious fillings. Naked wedding cakes are especially popular in the summer when seasonal fruits are ripe for the picking (like strawberries and blueberries). In this example, fresh fruit adds texture to the cake (and requires no additional cake topper).

Spotted: a delightful macaron wedding cake! And, the new top spot in wedding cake alternatives! (Remember the Oreo wedding cake and this unique idea? Or this?) Macarons are delicious treats made of ground almonds, egg whites, and sugar. They’re simple, sweet, and colorful. Wouldn’t they make an amazing wedding cake tower?

Brides: are you serving cupcakes at your wedding? Bored of the same old display? Want to cross “centerpieces” AND “cake” off your to-do list at the same time? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve heard of the cupcake in a jar – heck, we’ve even seen cupcakes on candlesticks – but a DIY cupcake bouquet is a fresh + fun idea. Instead of displaying cupcakes on the same old tray or tower, display them in a pot instead! These rose-frosting-topped cupcake bouquets are perfect for spring and summer weddings, bridal showers, and parties, and they double as your centerpiece, too. Plus, with Mother’s Day around the corner, you have no excuse but to whip up a batch of cupcakes this weekend and give ‘em to your mom. (And, it’s EASY! Even I could make ‘em, which is saying a lot. I’m no baker.) Besides, do you know anyone who would turn down a bouquet of cupcakes? Me either. So, grab your favorite cupcake mix, delicious frosting, some decorative cupcake wrappers, and a few other easy-to-find supplies and prepare to be inspired! Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page for full step-by-step tutorials. Enjoy!
