Hi! I’m Kaitlyn, and I love dessert.
Welcome to my world of nonpareils! I started this blog in 2009 as a self-taught baker and desserts enthusiast. Today I’m a trained pastry chef, cookbook author, freelance recipe developer and photographer. It’s my personal mission to learn all I can about baking and pastry, and to share it with you!
Before I fell in love with baking, I was an aspiring artist. For years I worked in art galleries with artists of every stripe: painters, sculptors, glass blowers, and textile artists. That love has translated into using art techniques on all kinds of confections. I even wrote a book about it! It’s called SprinkleBakes: Dessert Recipes to Inspire Your Inner Artist. You can read all about it here.
A wedding cake is the traditional cake served at wedding receptions following dinner. In some parts of England, the wedding cake is served at a wedding breakfast, note that ‘wedding breakfast’ does not mean the meal will be held in the morning but at a time following the ceremony on the same day. In modern Western culture, the cake is usually on display and served to guests at the reception. Traditionally, wedding cakes were made to bring good luck to all guests and the couple. Modernly however, they are more of a centerpiece to the wedding and are not always even served to the guests. Some cakes are built with only a single edible tier for the bride and groom to share, but this is rare since the cost difference between fake and real tiers is minimal.
Wedding cakes come in several types, such as traditional wedding cakes, wedding cakes based on flavor, smaller cakes or individual cakes, frosted cakes, and cupcakes. Traditional wedding cakes are white, including decoration and icing varieties such as buttercream, almond. etc. Wedding cakes based on flavor include chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. Smaller cakes or individual cakes can be more efficient in terms of price. Frosted cakes are popular due to the large amount of cream.
Welcome to A Wedding Cake Blog! We wanted to create a cake photo site that everyone could love — even if they’re not about to get married. After all, wedding cakes provide inspiration — whether you’re creating a cake yourself for any kind of celebration, a batch of cupcakes for family or friends, or just scanning for a new idea for an artistic endeavor.
Come along with us and spend a few minutes, hours, or days scrolling through wedding cakes, remembering your own big day, planning for your kids or friends, or dreaming of a celebration to come!
