Unique Wedding Cakes by Cake Ball Love

By, July 05, 2012

I offer something different to the wedding industry — Cake Ball Cakes! I take a favorite of the modern dessert table, the cake ball, and incorporate it into something that is very traditional, the wedding cake. I like applying new and classic cake decorating techniques to create something fresh and unique. So you’re literally having your cake and eating it too!

I recently had the chance to work with Rachel and Ian, who celebrated their marriage at La Valencia in La Jolla.  Rachel contacted me to make a cake ball cake for her wedding, and I was given free range! Their wedding colors included several shades of purple, so they wanted a cake made of something chocolate and purple!

I had been wanting to tackle a cake ball cake with an “ombre effect” — colors or tones that shade into each other, graduated from light to dark — so this was the perfect opportunity! This is one of my favorite cakes I’ve made to date.  The graduation of purples juxtaposed against the backdrop of the amazing reception room is just beautiful.

One of my favorite details about this cake was the bride and groom cake toppers — the chocolate top hat in particular. I thought this looked so adorable.

I was so excited to see this photo, as I rarely get to see the bride and groom during the wedding. This couple looks so beautiful and completely happy.

I adore this photo. It’s always fun to see the “feeding” ceremony. There’s so much giddiness and a touch of mischief during this part of the reception.
