In honor of my sister coming home from Paris today after studying pastries for the past year, today’s post is all about cake! As yummy as simple chocolate and vanilla can be, it’s fun to imagine unique flavor combinations for your wedding cake, and as I was going through my files and Pinterest “Sweets” board, I realized that many of my favorite layer cakes came from the same place: Sweetapolita. So I decided to highlight some of the yummiest recipes from her collection… (click the images for the original recipe link).

Malted Chocolate + Toasted Marshmallow “Campfire” Cake
Salted Caramel + Chocolate Fudge Cake
Chocolate Stout Cake + Whipped Vanilla Bean Frosting
Vanilla Bean Cake + Vanilla Espresso Buttercream
Sweet Potato Ginger Cake + Brown Sugar Buttercream
Hawaiian Carrot Cake + Coconut Cream Cheese Icing
Orange Ginger Carrot Cake + White Chocolate Buttercream
Triple Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake
Dark Chocolate + Raspberry Buttercream Cake
Inside-Out Neapolitan Layer Cake
Six-Layer Dark Chocolate Cake + Strawberry Buttercream
Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake + Whipped Peppermint Icing


How yummy do these cakes look?! If you haven’t visited Sweetapolita yet, prepare to spend some time there.

Have you decided on something for your wedding cake yet? What are your favorite cake flavors? My wedding cake was alternating tiers of  Lemon Sponge Cake with Lemon Curd and Chocolate “Mahogany” Cake with Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Cream – I’m drooling just thinking about it…

    These look amazing. In fact the descriptions were enough to get me going – sweet potato and ginger?!
    We weren’t planning to have cake – too heavy – I would love a crepe stand instead (crepe+nutella=my kryptonite). But have recently started reconsidering – my mum makes a lovely, light lemon sponge with lavender icing…

    Wow, these look so good! For our wedding we’re having red velvet cupcakes with a creamy vanilla frosting, and a small cake for the top tier!
