Naked Cakes

Now that engagement season is is full bloom I thought I would share some of my favorite wedding looks. With engagement season comes wedding planning hysteria, which can be really intimidating, especially when you don’t really know where to start. I started by basically living on pinterest and figuring out the type of look which would be budget, seasonal and aesthetically friendly. Since I did spend quite the embarrassing amount of time on pinterest, I can save you the task of picking through the plethora of wedding blogs and pins.

One of the trends which I found to be quite beautiful is the ‘naked’ wedding cake. There are a few reasons why I think this is perfect for a wedding. First of all- Wedding cakes can be so expensive. One way to cut that cost is to have it prepared by a regular baker. The only difference, i think, is that they can’t really do the elaborate frosting decoration that many wedding cakes require. But why make that a requirement? This is a great way to have a delicious cake, not ‘caked’ on by all that parve frosting and be able to decorate it to match your colors, theme, season without a heavy price.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Seder Plates

With Passover right around the corner I thought  I would share seven of my favorite Seder Plates I have been sourcing. I love all the variation of styles, traditional, modern, rustic. It is really too bad that we don’t have seven seders!
