It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

The Perfect Classic White Cake


A classic white cake batter is the most essential recipe for Spring baking. You can use it as a base recipe to make all kinds of Spring cakes or cupcakes. Add in flavors like lemon, strawberry, pineapple, etc. to make your own specialty cakes for your next Spring gathering. The following recipe for classic white cake is adapted from King Arthur Flour.

Ingredients
*yields 24 cupcakes / two 9" round layers
  • 2 3/4 cups King Arthur Unbleached Cake Flour Blend
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar; superfine sugar is best
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened (use vegetable oil for dairy-free option)
  • 4 large eggs whites plus 1 whole large egg
  • 1 cup full-fat vanilla yogurt or 1 cup whole milk (use unsweetened coconut milk for dairy-free option)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F and butter and flour baking pans or line with paper baking cups.

2. Mix dry ingredients together then add the butter and mix until crumbly.

3. Add eggs one at a time and combine.

4. Combine other remaining ingredients in separate small bowl then add to the dry mix and incorporate completely, until fluffy.

5. Bake 25 to 35 min in round pans, 18-20 min for cupcakes, and 35 to 40 min for a large rectangular cake.


These classic white cupcakes are delicious as is, or you can add more flavor to both the mix and the finished product. I love to add in fresh diced strawberries for fresh strawberry muffins.
