You are here



Have you ever been to a wedding reception where you spotted a guest secretly eating a piece—or two—of cake while the rest of the crew is mingling and showing off their dance moves? Well, I have. I am that guest.

I often find myself moseying to a friend’s reception thinking, “Cheers to the happy couple! Let’s try the cake already!” 


Here are a few cakes to “ooh and aah” over. We saw a slew of sweet treats this past season in bold oranges, hot pinks, and romantic reds. Aren’t they gorgeous? I’d bet they were pretty tasty, too.


Looking for even more wedding inspo? Tune in to “My News 2 with Tara Lynn” on Monday at 11.a.m. Our very own editor Melissa Bigner will be there to help kick off the show’s wedding week. Word on the street is that she’ll be sharing secret and off-the-beaten-path wedding locations. 


In the meantime, stay tuned. Next Friday, I’ll have another batch of cakes ready for you to admire.
