My big cake crush!
I have been not-so-secretly obsessed with the Wedding Cakes of Jim Smeal for quite some time now... and though I've poured over the cakes on his site dozens of times, I just can't stop! What I love most is how he so beautifully executes the "cake-scape" - instead of one tiered cake, he puts together a collection of related, but not matching (if you know me, you know I don't like the "matchy-matchy!") cakes. After having done so many beautiful versions of the candy bar, cookie bar, dessert table and the like, this seems to me like the next, more sophisticated, evolution of this trend. Staff the cake-scape with some well-dressed, uniformed chefs who can elegantly garnish your guests' cake plates with the perfect accompaniments and you will finish your wedding meal with a huge "wow!" Thanks, Jim. Hope to gush about your cakes in person one day soon.
