Sunday Sweets: A Peck of Pastel Pretties

(I pulled John's sister Anne Marie over to do Sweets this week. Everyone say "hi, Anne Marie!")

When I think of pastels, I always think of The Wicked Awesome 80's.  Back then I wasn't into neon, so the only other options for clothes, makeup and jewelry were in pastels. I had perfectly matching mint green eye shadow, stretchy belt, and Reebok Freestyle aerobic sneakers. And needless to say, I looked totally radical.

But the BEST place for pastels is definitely cake.

I usually wonder how anyone can cut into all these lovely sweets, but in this case, half the beauty is inside!

Ruffly goodness!


And I LOVE the tiny bunting on these layers:


By Imaginative Icing

 Its got that Victorian garden party feel to it. Perfect with a spot of tea!


These sugar flowers could easily be mistaken for real flowers - but they're better, 'cuz they're SUGAR!

By Jane's Cakes

 And that's not a trick of the light - the icing on the rest of the cake is really soft grey! Pretty!


This birdcage design features the loveliest mint green icing:

 Anyone else hoping that hook on top is a huge Hershey's Kiss?


I feel the urge to give this bitty blue birthday bear (I think we should call him George) a big squeeze and huggie:

Think Heleena would mind?


Teeny, tiny, perfectly formed roses on the bottom +

precisely piped swags encircling the top tier =


 I wish the roses in my backyard were that lush!


My, my, Mr. Owl!  What big eyes you have!

Now here's a Sweet alternative to cupcake cakes: a cupcake bouquet!

By Mimi's Cakes & Bakes

 I can see myself sitting daintily in a parlor, nibbling one flower at a time from my own, personal cupcake.  [dreamy sigh]


Is it just me, or is seafoam green and soft peach the PERFECT color combo?

By Irresistible Cakes

 It just makes me happy.


This falls into the 'can't bear to cut into it' category.  

The detail!

The butterflies!

And you know what I like best?  The cake is covered in Sugarpaste.  

 Doesn't that just sound scrumptious?  

(Yeah, I know its another word for fondant, but just let me dream, m-kay?)
