Heritage Inspiration: Holiday Cakes and Holiday Decor

Heritage Inspiration: Holiday Cakes and Holiday Decor

Imagine the sweet and savory aroma of fresh baked goodies as you walk into a home that has every room filled with holiday decor. Garland filled tablescapes and festive cakes sounds like the best of both worlds right? Well these two Southern favorites, home decor and holiday cakes, are only two of many items we look forward to during the holidays. One company that provides Lowcountry sweet treats is Carolima’s and below are a few holiday cakes we suggest you all should try and decor items that are a necessity in all Southern homes. 

Carolima’s is a Lowcountry Black Owned-Business known for their made from scratch dishes to their Southern desserts. Established as an outlet for the joy of cooking and entertaining by Lowcountry native, Sameka Jenkins, Carolimas has an array of dishes. While Emma Cromedy specializes in generational southern desserts, Rethmiriam Barr serves as creative director of Carolima’s and enforces organization, attention to detail and using locally sourced ingredients to create their favorite dishes. Carolima’s are able to cater rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, corporate events, birthday parties and also offer ordering online for many of their delicious food items. Whether it’s their Charleston Chewies or cookie decorating kits, Carolima’s is able to ship your wants and and taste buds needs this holiday season. 

One of Carolima’s most asked for cakes would be their pound cakes. Pound Cakes are one of the most liked dessert items in many Southern households. Made with four main ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar, these cakes can be flavored to your liking. Interested in classic vanilla or chocolate or want something more flavorful like lemon, almond and key lime, then Carolima’s have what you’re yearning for. Created with love by Lowcountry natives and from scratch, each cake will be perfect for the holiday season. Place the cake directly on the dining room table and watch as family and friends try to hold themselves back from diving in until dessert time. 

When displaying cakes and sweet treats from Carolima’s, it is important to have decor that matches the aesthetic of Lowcountry cake making. Down below are a few tips in which every Southern Belle should take into consideration when displaying desserts on the dinner table. 

Tip 1: Cake Centerpiece

Let the cake be the main focus in the tablescape design. True dessert eaters know that the cake and sweets are the last items to leave the table, so why not let them be the main attraction while enjoying Christmas or New Year dinner.

Tip 2: Gold Accents

Include specs of gold throughout your holiday decor and watch as your tablescape is enhanced to fit any restaurant style. Add bits of gold through the napkin holder, glassware trim, silverware; or should I say “goldwear, ” and candleholders. These small details will bring the entire decor look together and even tie in existing decor work you already have for the holidays. 

Tip 3: Beautify

Adding last minute touches are key for any Southern Belle tablescape. We are truly never done decorating. Including last minute items like Lowcountry images, wrapping present bows, and candles helps secure the design. So, whatever you thought you needed go ahead an add it and see how it turns out.
