Life Should Be Cake

Sunday Sweets: No More Tiers!

or copy the link

This week I thought we’d look at cakes just like me: short, but sweet.


Not only are today’s Sweets all a single tier tall, they’re also fantastic inspiration for us mere mortals. After all, most of us will never attempt a giant showstopper cake, but we MIGHT get ambitious with a little one.

Which isn’t to say I have any chance of crafting something this lovely, but a girl can dream, right?
(And please tell me they used a template for those perfect polka dots. )


Look at this sweet swirly rose!

I like the touch of glitter on the edges.


Or instead of one BIG flower, you could try a whole bouquet:


Or go for something dark and dramatic:

That metallic red! Yes.


This blue damask is my favorite color combo today:

It’s just so rich, and that little pop of gold, with all those clean lines? Perfection.


But a standing ovation, please, for the bakery making beauties like this using only buttercream:

That’s right, no fondant! It IS possible!


Not that I’m slamming fondant, of course. Fondant gives us perfect pastel ruffles:


And sugarpaste gives us gorgeous, porcelain-like flowers:

In fact, I’ve always liked that you can keep your gumpaste flowers as a souvenir, long after the cake itself is gone.


Here’s one of my favorite designs for ages:

I’ve always wanted to try this someday. I love how the roses seem to float right on the top edge.


And finally, let’s talk about this clever use of the cake board:

Lace overload! Look at all that glorious texture! And you guys, did you see? It has a tiny ladybug on top. AAA! Love.


Happy Sunday, everyone!
