Loving Simple Cakes

For the longest time I’ve had a thing for really simple, but supremely tasty cakes. As a kid my mom always made a white cake speckled with sliced strawberries and covered heartily in homemade whipped cream in lieu of frosting each year for my birthday. No intricate design, no artificially colored decorations or fondants, and just as perfect as a cake comes, in my book. In college I adapted a page from my mom’s book, making homemade cakes for friends’ birthdays that were as simple as they were delicious. Admittedly, I can’t make a pretty cake to save my life. But a cake that will knock the socks off your taste buds? Now that I can do. Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to these simple yet absolutely lovely cakes. They look like the kind of cake you dive into with your friends while sipping cheap champagne in your drafty apartment, feeling gleefully grown up while doing so. In other words, they’re pretty perfect in all the ways a cake should be.

Oh my goodness. I think I need my own cake board. These are so marvelous – I am all the way down with simple, sweet, homemade cakes.

I so agree, simple cakes are my favorite! Sadly, I can’t frost a cake to save me life. It’s on my list of goals for 2013 to learn though!

this is what my wedding cake table will look like in May {hopefully}.

I agree wholeheartedly…simple cakes for the win! That last photo of the dark chocolate cake with a single layer of pillowy frosting is my dream dessert. :)

These are so pretty! Simple cakes are definitely the best!

oh my! the cakes with the chosen cake stands…..super lovely. love.love.love

How lovely! These make me want to go bake a cake right now, although I’m not sure mine would be quite so delicious looking!
