I'm not usually much of a girly girl, but something about today's Sweets make me yearn for petticoats and lollipops. So proceed with caution; there's potentially lethal sweetness ahead. ;)
Let's start with some retro chic:
Hooray for kitschy cakes!
(Is anyone else remembering certain art prints from their childhood?)
And an even more elegant Princess design minus the actual princess:
Here's a fun color combo:
That lime green really makes the pink pop; I like seeing unexpected color pairings.
Moving on to more grownup designs...(Although I'm guessing it must be a Styrofoam topper underneath to keep the weight manageable. Bakers? Do you concur?)
Proving that pink is not just for little girls:
I love this design. It's fantastic seeing what a master decorator can do with a simple square cake, isn't it?
I don't see much pink on today's wedding cakes - too feminine for most couples, perhaps? Or just too old-fashioned? Regardless, I thought this one was sweet without being over-the-top:
Great flowers, great piping. I like that there are different shades of pink, too.
And last but not least, this pink-packed beauty shows that sometimes moderation is overrated:
I don't know how you'd eat it, but boy, is that pretty. I also like the way the birthday girl's name is stamped into the side. It's such a clean, modern alternative to piping. (Not to mention easier, which - let's be honest - is also a major point in its favor.)
