Currently Crushing: Unfinished Cakes





Images: 1 & 5 // 2 // 3 // 4

I'm usually the girl that likes everything finished. A clean line, an i dotted, and a t crossed. But when I came across this feature and saw that gorgeous undone cake, I had to catch my breath. Now I'm completely smitten with the idea of an intentionally unfinished cake. Especially one that's topped with luscious floral, fruits, and fancy toppers! Are you crushing too?!

I AM! Early on in my wedding planning process, I asked my mother and the wedding planning firm we hired to do a cake like this.

They vetoed me.

But I still love them! Google pictures of Hilary Duff's wedding, her cake is absolutely stunning. Deconstructed and lush at the same time!

I've never heard of the expression "unfinished" or "undone" before with regard to a cake, but it's a very good description!!

We often have cakes like this in the UK and I saw the Valentine's features that the Everygirl did recently, isn't it stunning....how I would have loved to be at that event :) Xx

Julie,
So fun! I had never thought about these cool cakes as unfinished, but that's exactly right. Chic, cool....very of the moment.

Loving all these images and loving that the sun has finally returned to NYC and I might get to bring out the sundresses and sandals!

Hope you had a relaxing MDW!
xoxo Elizabeth

Right? I've kind of been loving the looks of these lately too! Thought about doing one for my birthday but then went traditional. Now you have me wishing I would have!

There is something whimsical about unfinished cakes.
