Stunning Wedding and Shower Cakes

Last year I had the pleasure of working with Suzanne and Eric on their wedding invitations and a few months ago, their lovely photographer sent over the beautiful photos from their wedding day. This cake literally stopped me in my tracks. Everything about it is perfection. It got me thinking about unique shower and wedding cakes in general and I thought I'd share some of the eye candy I found.

This one is so unique and has a tutorial for a DIY (which I would never trust myself to attempt! ha!)

The handprinted details on this cake are nothing short of amazing. I can't even image the skill it takes to do this. Just wow!

The drip and tye dye element to this one with the rustic flowers is a show stopper. I've never seen anything quite like it.

The Giada Restaurant, Las Vegas - Recreating the Beautiful Bread Bowl

Last weekend I ventured to Las Vegas (for my very first time) with 2 of my girlfriends for a fun mom's trip. We were there to eat, spa, sleep in, laugh a ton and gamble a little ;) . 
One of the things that stood out the most to me (as a Vegas Newbie) was the amount of absolutely amazing food within a few miles radius. I mean, overall, Vegas ("The Strip" anyway) is tiny-ish. But the food... wow! Every meal was an exciting adventure. 

Enter... The Giada Restaurant at the Cromwell Hotel. 

Everything was delish and we were all really wowed by her bread service.
Capers, coarse salt, butter, pesto and red pepper flakes accompanied the bread, which was served on a wooden dough bowl.

I loved the presentation and thought this would be something fun to create at home for a girls night or a small dinner party.

These few things go a long way to making a really beautiful presentation.
Want to serve this at your next girls night or fancy Friday dinner with the fam? Be sure to pin the image below.
