We are so excited to be partnering with AllRecipes with a new recipe each week! Check back each Friday afternoon to discover something delicious that you can make over the weekend.
Caramel Drizzle Freezer Pie
Lately, it seems that many real weddings feature pie buffets and frosted layer cakes. And I love the easy simplicity of that. But, there is just something about a stunner of a wedding cake. These lovelies by Charm City Cakes West are more than dessert; they are works of art.
It doesn’t take too more searching to find some ugly cake toppers out there. For serious, what are these people thinking? Some of them are bigger than the cake itself! So I thought you could all use some cute cake toppers to look at. From rustic to glittery glam, these will bring that extra bit of style to your wedding dessert!
Is it a little self-sabotaging to start off the weekend looking at cakes? Perhaps. But just like my newfound and shameful addiction to the teenage soap opera Pretty Little Liars, sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants.

While I do love a good cake topper, I prefer a gorgeous cake stand. Why? I’m practical. Chances are I am not going to re-use the very adorable personalized wood figurines of me and my honey. But a pretty cake stand in pink or silver or blue? Absolutely! That thing is going to be showing off cupcakes and cinnamon rolls and macarons every chance I get! Sarah’s Stands has the loveliest cake stands. You should check them out. Also, go to their site for some serious wedding cake inspiration. Amazing!
I really love this very simple stained soft maple. Perfect for rustic weddings!
I go back and forth on which one is my favorite. Right now, it’s the blue.
Instead of traditional cake, consider giving each guest a cake with their name on it! These are refreshingly modern and easy to make!Cost: approximately 50 cents per cake

1. Bake the little cakes in the molds. Use extra batter so the cakes will puff up a little higher than the paper molds. Let the cakes cool down.
2. Measure strips of parchment and cut to wrap around the bottom of the cakes.
3. Add a ribbon and personalized tag.
4. Line up on a pretty table!
Any of the cake…
Can we keep it real? It is Friday and all I want is a salted chocolate-covered caramel. I noticed that Fran’s now sells wedding favors, and you should totally check them out. But really, get something for you. Really. It will make all the details you have to finish before your wedding so much more enjoyable.
Normally I am not a fan of fruit + chocolate. It seems to defy the laws of nature. But I tell you, their chocolate covered apricots are out.of.this.world.
Ice cream and caramel sauce. The perfect Friday night treat. What if you don’t have ice cream? Well, then you have to shamefully eat the sauce straight out of the jar, right?
