  • PWer Aug_09_Bride had a festive, colorful, and fresh 3-Tier square cake.


    Each tier was separated by a riser and then offset, which created an interesting 'twist' on traditional square stacking.  Bright teal ribbons, pink and orange Gerbera daisies, pink roses, and a delicate hand-piped design gave the cake a fresh and elegant summer look.

    The bride says:  The cake was frosted with Butter Cream frosting. There were 3 layers; 2 layers were Chocolate Baileys and the largest layer was Strawberries and Champagne. My favorite was the Strawberries and Champagne because the cake was light and the filling had fresh strawberries. It was nice and light for a summer afternoon wedding.

  • Mini wedding cakes are gaining in popularity among couples looking for a creative alternative to conventional wedding cakes. By serving mini wedding cakes, the bride and groom still maintain the wedding cake tradition while at the same time putting a unique and individual spin on the custom.

     


    Speaking of customs, it was the Chinese culture that long ago began the practice of giving a piece of cake to every guest at a wedding, to spread and share the newlyweds' good fortune. Mini wedding cakes bring this tradition to a new level and can either be served as dessert at the wedding or packaged to take home as favors.

    Mini wedding cakes can be designed in as many ways as larger cakes. Couples sometimes have both a traditional wedding cake and mini wedding cakes that are small, multi-tiered replicas of that one. In some cases, when the mini wedding cakes are served as dessert, the larger cake might actually be a Styrofoam fake just set up for display, with one real layer for the cake cutting ceremony - this is a good way to economize, since a large number of fancy decorated mini wedding cakes might add considerably to the wedding budget.


    For variety, use several decoration patterns for mini wedding cakes. Or check with the pastry chef to see if it would be possible to prepare the mini wedding cakes in a few different shapes. If you're having a theme wedding, vary the theme-related ornamentation on the cakes. For a garden wedding, for example, the mini wedding cakes can be prepared in small plant pots, each one with a different colored flower on top. Mini wedding cakes served at a winter wedding could feature assorted snowflake patterns on top.


    When mini wedding cakes are all decorated the same way, use different icing or accent colors. Another way to add variety is for the cakes to come in a number of flavors. Mini wedding cakes can be covered with either buttercream or rolled fondant icing, but fondant is used more often for elaborate decorations.


    Sometimes it's not feasible to have mini wedding cakes for each guest, especially at larger receptions. When that's the case, couples who like the idea of mini wedding cakes might consider smaller, not quite mini wedding cakes on each guest table. These could serve as both table centerpieces and mouth-watering desserts.


    For couples having a small wedding, mini wedding cakes are a terrific and attractive alternative to conventional cakes and/or desserts. Presenting individual mini wedding cakes to each guest can be very doable at a small wedding, and if each cake is decorated a bit differently - or perhaps even personalized with each guest's name - the mini wedding cakes also provide an added design element to the celebration.


    Nicely packaged mini wedding cakes make excellent wedding favors. If you're thinking of giving mini wedding cakes as favors for the guests to take home and eat later, here's something to consider: since fondant icing travels better and lasts longer than buttercream frosting, use rolled fondant to ice and decorate the mini wedding cakes.

    Baby since the day you came into my life
    You made me realize that we were born to fly
    You showed me everyday new possibilities
    You proved my fantasies of love could really be

    Let's go to a place only lovers go
    To a spot that we've never known
    To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah
    Ooh this feels so crazy
    Oh this love is blazing
    Baby we're so high
    Walking on cloud 9

    (You've got me up so high) So high

    Maybe later we can go up to the moon
    Or sail among the stars before the night is through
    And when morning comes we'll see the sun is not so far
    And we can't get much closer to God than where we are

    We'll go to a place only lovers go
    To a spot that we've never known

  • Once upon a time, wedding cakes were almost always white on white - plain cake with white buttercream frosting. Today, pretty much anything goes, and one of the most popular choices around is a chocolate wedding cake. Sometimes it's layers of chocolate cake iced in traditional white, at other times a chocolate wedding cake is coated in luscious fudge frosting - and always, a chocolate wedding cake is a mouth-watering favorite!

    An elaborately decorated chocolate wedding cake can make an elegant statement on a dessert table. Brightly colored flowers (real or made by the pastry chef) piled on top or cascading down the tiers would make a striking contrast to chocolate frosting, as would other colorful decorations in any number of artful patterns.


    A chocolate wedding cake actually isn't as simple as it may sound. There are a different kinds of chocolate - e.g., plain, dark, milk - and chocolate can be blended with other flavors for a variety of delectable combinations. A plain chocolate wedding cake gets extra zing when flavors like orange, raspberry or coffee are added. Tasty fruit fillings can also be used in between layers of a chocolate wedding cake. If alcohol is being served at the reception, rum, brandy or another liqueur could be mixed in. Other popular add-ins for a chocolate wedding cake are mint, almonds and coconut.


    Chocolate accents can be used to transform any wedding cake into a chocolate wedding cake. The couple's monogram can be "written" in chocolate all over a white or colored rolled fondant icing. Shaved chocolate or drizzles and swirls can be used to create sophisticated, eye-catching designs.


    Couples who want a chocolate wedding cake might also choose different kinds of cake other than the standard baked layers. Cheesecake is gaining popularity as a wedding cake choice, and chocolate cheesecake covered with ganache - melted cream and chocolate poured over for a smooth, shiny glaze - makes a chocolate wedding cake that is beautiful to look at and sinfully delicious to eat.


    Another option for a chocolate wedding cake is German chocolate cake - dark chocolate cake layered with a coconut-pecan filling and glazed with chocolate icing. Black forest cake, which combines layers of chocolate cake with whipped cream and cherry filling and can be iced with either whipped cream or chocolate frosting, would also make a stunning and scrumptious chocolate wedding cake.


    A chocolate wedding cake is often richer than other cakes, and if it's being served after a complete meal, other, lighter dessert options should also be available. Fresh fruit and sorbet are easy, excellent companions for a chocolate wedding cake - and these will be welcome alternatives for guests who might be allergic to or (hard though it may be to believe) don't like chocolate.


    If you're hesitant about having a chocolate wedding cake instead of a traditional white one, consider serving a chocolate groom wedding cake at the reception alongside a conventional tiered cake. Groom wedding cakes are frequently chocolate, so this would be a good way to have your cake ... and eat chocolate, too!

  • Atlanta Wedding Favors

    The wedding favor is a gift from the bride and groom that is given to guests to take home as a memory of their special occasion.

    Fun Atlanta Wedding Favors

Since peach trees are plentiful in Atlanta, fresh peaches also make fun (and tasty) local Atlanta wedding favors. Perhaps you can incorporate a favorite sporting team, such as the Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Braves, or the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Wedding cake stands:

     


    Wedding cake stands are often the unsung heroes (or heroines) of the event - for all the time and effort (and expense!) that goes into choosing and preparing and decorating wedding cakes, if wedding cake stands don't do their job properly, it could all just fall flat ... literally. 

    Wedding cake stands hold up and display the wedding cake, sometimes for hours on end. Basic wedding cake stands are either an unraised platter (larger than the bottom layer of the cake), a footed plateau stand whose surface is elevated off the table, or a pedestal, which is raised in the center. Wedding cake stands can be made of any sturdy material, but glass, acrylic, ceramic, china and metal (usually silver or brass) are the most common. Single-used, disposable wedding cake stands are also easy to find.


    Groups of matching wedding cake stands can be purchased for tiered cakes, which can then be stacked according to size or in a step-like formation or another grouped arrangement. Couples serving mini wedding cakes or wedding cupcakes can use matching wedding cake stands - or they might choose a variety of different wedding cake stands to make a more striking design statement.


    For the classic tiered wedding cake look, individual layers are stacked on top of each other. (When layers are stacked in this way, each tier is supported by dowels or columns placed inside the cake itself.) One wedding cake stand is customarily used on the bottom, and, for a more dramatic effect, pillars can be used to add space between each tier of the cake. Pillars are sometimes placed below the base wedding cake stand, or it can rest directly on the cake table. When base wedding cake stands are held up by pillars, a centerpiece or other ornamentation is often placed underneath the cake for added decorative effect.


    Wedding cake stands can be purchased with complementary pillars or bought separately and then used together. Some professional bakers have pillars that can be used and returned to them at the end of the event. Glass or plastic champagne flutes or other suitably-shaped objects can also be used as pillars. Wedding cake stands using pillars create an elegant cake display, and the pillars can create an illusion of greater height, depending on their size.


    Some multi-tiered wedding cake stands have a single column going down the middle of the stand. This helps create a "tower" illusion without pillars and these wedding cake stands are often used by couples who are serving wedding cupcakes or mini wedding cakes. Alternately, a smaller tiered cake is placed on the top of the multi-tiered wedding cake stand and other decorations, desserts or pastries are displayed on the lower tiers.


    Wedding cake stands are available for purchase in a wide variety of styles, but if couples are looking for something more unique, they should check out antique stores, flea markets and swap meets - or the family attic! - for vintage pedestals, platters, display shelves or funky plant stands that can be cleaned up, painted and used as wedding cake stands ... and after the celebration is over, they've got an instant family heirloom.

Basic wedding cake stands are either an unraised platter (larger than the bottom layer of the cake), a footed plateau stand whose surface is elevated off the table, or a pedestal, which is raised in the center. Wedding cake stands can be made of any sturdy material, but glass, acrylic, ceramic, china and metal (usually silver or brass) are the most common. Single-used, disposable wedding cake stands are also easy to find.


    Groups of matching wedding cake stands can be purchased for tiered cakes, which can then be stacked according to size or in a step-like formation or another grouped arrangement. Couples serving mini wedding cakes or wedding cupcakes can use matching wedding cake stands - or they might choose a variety of different wedding cake stands to make a more striking design statement.


    For the classic tiered wedding cake look, individual layers are stacked on top of each other. (When layers are stacked in this way, each tier is supported by dowels or columns placed inside the cake itself.) One wedding cake stand is customarily used on the bottom, and, for a more dramatic effect, pillars can be used to add space between each tier of the cake. Pillars are sometimes placed below the base wedding cake stand, or it can rest directly on the cake table. When base wedding cake stands are held up by pillars, a centerpiece or other ornamentation is often placed underneath the cake for added decorative effect.


    Wedding cake stands can be purchased with complementary pillars or bought separately and then used together. Some professional bakers have pillars that can be used and returned to them at the end of the event. Glass or plastic champagne flutes or other suitably-shaped objects can also be used as pillars. Wedding cake stands using pillars create an elegant cake display, and the pillars can create an illusion of greater height, depending on their size.


    Some multi-tiered wedding cake stands have a single column going down the middle of the stand. This helps create a "tower" illusion without pillars and these wedding cake stands are often used by couples who are serving wedding cupcakes or mini wedding cakes. Alternately, a smaller tiered cake is placed on the top of the multi-tiered wedding cake stand and other decorations, desserts or pastries are displayed on the lower tiers.


    Wedding cake stands are available for purchase in a wide variety of styles, but if couples are looking for something more unique, they should check out antique stores, flea markets and swap meets - or the family attic! - for vintage pedestals, platters, display shelves or funky plant stands that can be cleaned up, painted and used as wedding cake stands ... and after the celebration is over, they've got an instant family heirloom.
