Best Wedding Cakes

Top of the Charts! Let’s take a look at our favorites throughout the centuries. OK, maybe not centuries. But you get it.

By the way, these are in no particular order, because I simply can’t choose which is better than the next.

I spent a lot of time navigating through BluPrint, there is just so much amazing content to give you the inspiration you need, and the tools to make it happen. Their classes are amazing as well for cake decorating.

7. The Force is Strong with this one.

The Bride wanted to surprise the Groom with a special cake that would fit his personality perfectly. Her entire wedding was so incredibly beautiful, with the PNW hills in the background, and rose, golds and pale palette that got us all dreamy. But the cake, although purely business on the front, was Dark Side on the back.

6. Nutella for Days

One of our favorite clients requested we make their wedding cake, and we couldn’t be prouder! Now we knew already that this bride would never have enough Nutella, so the frosting of this cake was loaded with the heavenly hazelnut cream. The venue couldn’t be beaten either, at the Newcastle Golf Club, wow.

5. Best Day Ever.

This one was also super special. The bride’s favorite ice cream flavor from Molly Moon in Seattle was the Honey & Lavender, so she was hoping we could create something as close to that as possible. And man… it was the most delicious cake we’ve ever made! The wedding was held at the Pacific Tower, and these guys were so incredibly stunning.

4. Unique is the name of the Game

This couple was amazing. They were quirky, fun, and so in love. We helped plan all the parties around their wedding, and it was so amazing to get to know them! We designed this cake to match their unique and beautiful personalities.

3. Winter Wonderland

The deep burgundy colors of this wedding gave us all the feels! It was a December wedding, and it’s hard to pull off something beautiful during that time in Seattle, I have to admit. It’s dark and gloomy, but the bride and groom brought all the shine on that day!

2. Navy & Gold

This was our all-time favorite wedding. These guys live close to our heart and we watched them grow together from the very beginning of their relationship! I was thrilled to be part of this special day, and was tasked with making a cake that was unique and modern and couture, and I did my absolute best. There was edible gold on the middle layer, and we added rice paper on the bottom layer and created such a different visual.

  1. Whimsical & Romantic

We’ve talked about this one before, but we couldn’t leave out this beauty. One of our favorites, and captured expertly by our favorite local photographer, Patrick Nied.

Hope you enjoyed it!

Whimsical Wedding

Hold your hats, people! This is the romance we’ve all been searching for in a cake.

Featured on Wedding Chicks, this styled photo shoot was a total hit, with the most amazing vendors in town. Check out the article for the full list of vendors and all the amazing photos!

When discussing what we wanted to do for the cake, many ideas came to mind. But we were focusing on “whimsical”, and “romantic”. We saw a few inspiration pictures of vintage china sets with hand painted details, and I knew I had found the focal point.

I started out thinking I needed some kind of stencil to make this pattern, but it turns out this works so much better free handing it.

Now seeing this come together with the rest of the design, all orchestrated by Elite Events Seattle, and photographed by the amazing Patrick Nied Photography, take a look:

Vineyard Wedding charm

Folks, there’s nothing quite like a summer wedding at a vineyard. Late sunsets, warm afternoons, and cheery people! Especially here in the PNW, these are welcomed feelings.

Let me set the stage for you.

Gilbert Cellars winery, a few hours outside of town (Seattle), will feel like a whole new world! If you’ve never been, please go there one day. It’s so charming and lovely!ย As we cross over Steven’s Pass, we already feel like a million miles away from the hustle of the city. Yakima welcomes us all with open arms and sunny skies.

Cue our lovely, amazing, handsome, boujee couple, B&P. #bandpsittininatree are pretty much the loveliest people you’ll meet.

I don’t have a wedding planning background, I have to be honest with you. But I love it, and I love making dreams come true! Because that’s exactly what this is. The stress and workload that comes with it, it’s all for one goal. To make the couples dream a reality.

Cue in incredible photographer Matt Rommelย , who can capture the most amazing candid photos! The essence of that day can be seen through his lenses, much much farther than what you’ll see in choreographed poses and rehearsed timelines.

So much detail! So much intensity captured in the moment.

I have to be honest again, if you’re a local, you’ll know that the most common thing we will see in the summer in the Pacific Northwest is the massive amount of smoke from the wildfires surrounding us. And it was a very real thing we were concerned with for this amazing summer August day. But you know what? Somehow, miraculously, the smoke cleared out for the wedding, and the little that stayed behind helped bring some drama to the photos! The day after the wedding, it looked like we were on a different planet.

And now, the desserts. Grooms wanted to focus more on variety on the dessert buffet then actually serving cake, so we went hard on the bite-sized options. French macarons, Brazilian Truffles (Brigadeiros), amarula cupcakes, meringue cookies, chocolate cake shooters, and cake pops for days. Check it out:

You ready for the cake? ….

We wanted to go with something modern and different. And this is what it came down to! The tall first layer gave us the opportunity to make a rare design with rice paper and edible gold. The ragged flakes of sheets reminded us of the mountain range that surrounded us from all sides.

Second layer brought in the bold navy blue of the wedding theme, as well as gold leaf as an accent.

And the top final layer was simple white fondant with thin gold stripes to add the modern touch. The flavor was vanilla with an Amarula buttercream (South African groom needed a touch from home. If you don’t know what this is, please stop what you’re doing right now and go buy it.)

Also, have you seen these amazing Protea flowers? Native to South Africa, we wanted to incorporate this in the decor to honor one of the groom’s heritage. Talk about unique and striking!
