Wedding Cupcakes

Cupcakes can be used as an alternative to a bride or groom's cake, as part of a dessert table, or wedding favors. It's a fun way to bring your colors, textures and personality into the reception, and guests love the opportunity to pick from a variety of flavors. There are so many ways to display and design cupcakes, so here are some cute ideas...

Gold, Not Gaudy

Golden cakes could easily come across as over-the-top and extravagant (maybe not a bad thing on the biggest day of your life!), BUT there are ways to make gold not gaudy. Pair it with soft colors like pink or mint, and use flowers or textured buttercream to keep it from looking too formal. Any kind of scroll-work, detailed designs or over-decoration in gold could cross the line into Italian Mob Wife territory. But if you're into that kind of thing, fuggedaboutit!

Braided Beauties

Braids are back. And what is in fashion can always be made in cake-form. Whether you're a tiny, subtle braid girl, or a messy side braid bride, your cake can be made to match. We're working on a braided cake this week, so we found these pics for inspiration. Look for our braided beauty on our facebook page or in our gallery next week!

The Swoon

Want something fun to do this Sunday afternoon in Dallas? Come visit us at The Swoon! This is a marketplace of indie party vendors selling and giving away their treats and goods. All of the RedRaspberry goodies are FREE, so it's a great way to taste our cakes and get to know us. There are swag bags for the first 50 guests, so get there early if you want even more free goodies! Complimentary parking is available in the parking lot and side streets. Tickets are available at the door for $10 (cash or credit), if not purchased at Prekindle by today for $8. Here is a list of the vendors  who we get to rub shoulders with. All of the details are in this ad and the website it links to.  And below the Swoon ad is a little sneak peak at one of our new display cakes we've been working on for the event! See you Sunday!

Groom's Cakes

Grooms get the shaft when it comes to weddings. They have no say in the details - and most of them don't mind letting their bride take the spotlight. But every guy needs a place to express his personality in the middle of all of the flowers, fabric and fluff. The groom's cake is the perfect platform for your guy to show his love for his favorite team, show, food or hobby. Or to keep the focus on your love for each other, just go with the classic chocolate cake in an updated way.
