I might have just yelled "shut up!" at my computer screen.

(I often yell the same thing at the Anthropologie and J. Crew catalogs, respectively.)

Wayne Thiebaud-inspired wedding cakes. Need I say more?
Well, yes, I have a little more to say.

Wayne Thiebaud, Cakes, 1963.

If I was into a multi-cake idea for my wedding, this would be a shoe-in. Strangely enough, I'm finding that the more I brainstorm, the more (shockingly) traditional I'm becoming about this whole getting married business. We'll most likely have a big, typical cake, but I love how fine art-inspired wedding details are well, everywhere.


  1. How great is that! I too, had lots of "ideas" when planning our wedding and went WAY too traditional. I think it feels like you just have to make the decisions ASAP since there are more to make right behind that. My advice: take it slow and think about what you truly want...and don't tell too many people. I think the biggest creativity killer is looking for reassurance from others. I found that people would get a freaky-eyed look when I expressed an idea that was "too creative." But I should have gone with a few of those ideas to make the wedding more my own. You can't do ALL of the ideas--find the ones that matter and focus on those. Good luck and happy planning!

  2. Thanks, Mrs. P! I really think the "not telling too many people" is a good call. Everyone seems to have their own ideas right after you've shared yours, or they're a critic, OR they make a strange face, like you said!

  3. I just found your blog today and this is my second comment! I literally just published a post using photos from the same site you found the Wayne Thiebaud cakes on:

    Too funny!
