Chocolate and Roses

Chocolate shavings created a unique (and tasty!) border around each tier of the couple’s buttercream-frosted cake. Fresh orange and yellow roses finished it off and fit in with the color scheme.

ribbon-dots-cake

Ribbon and Dots

This wedding cake was decorated with clean and simple Swiss dots and green fondant grosgrain ribbon, topped with lily of the valley. Each of the three tiers had a different flavor combo: vanilla and cookies and cream; chocolate peanut butter and raspberry preserves; and citrus cake with blood orange and vanilla buttercream.

Victorian Sugar Roses

A stunning cake can be the pièce de résistance of your reception. Hundreds of handmade Victorian sugar roses create a delicate border around this square cake. Fluted embossed fondant and gold sugar cording complete each tier.

Black Fondant Flowers

Florals don’t look fussy in black and white. Instead, these black fondant flowers create a lovely graphic effect when paired with a pristine cake.

Let each table have its very own cake. This small delight is a two-tiered cake with buttercream icing and hand-molded sugar flowers.

A square-shaped middle tier and sweet, delicate accents combine to create a chic, sophisticated wedding cake.

table-cake

Individual Table Cake

Place a small “table” cake covered in sugar carnations at each reception table for a fun conversation-starter.

Fondant Vintage Buttons

Arts and crafts goes chic as sewing-inspired elements are everywhere. Think exposed stitching on invites and fondant vintage buttons on a white-on-white cake. 

fresh-ranunculus-cake

Fresh Ranunculus Flowers

This couple’s biggest concern was the flavor — not the style — of the wedding cake. So they opted for a tres leches cake with cinnamon buttercream icing and fresh strawberries. Fresh ranunculus provided the only decoration.

black-scallops-greenblooms-cake

Black Scallops and Green Blooms

Black scalloped edging and clusters of green-and-black blooms mimicked the wedding style on the four-tiered, white, fondant-covered cake.

Lace-Inspired

This elegant, four-tiered cake featured an intricate turquoise pattern inspired by the Alençon lace on the bride’s gown. Delicate strands of fresh, white cymbidium orchids hung from the ceiling, creating a defined space for the cake.

Stitching and Sugar Flowers

Delicate stitching and sugar roses and peonies were fitting accents to the country club cake. Even the cake stand, with its milgrain edges, epitomized understated elegance.

modern-art-cake

Tasty Modern Art

It looked more like modern art than dessert, but we swear it was edible! Sugar paste lilies and orchids covered the fondant cake, which was displayed at the top of a staircase so everyone could admire it from their tables.

strips-chocolate-cinnamon-cake

Chocolate Strips and Cinnamon Center

Simple strips of chocolate decorated all three tiers of this cake, which became a conversation starter among guests who couldn’t figure out what the secret ingredient was — cinnamon!

fresh-flowers-cake

Fresh Flower Belt

This six-tiered, white fondant wedding cake featured a mix of square and round tiers. Fresh flowers that matched the bridesmaid bouquets were delicately wrapped around the middle and a fresh apricot rose topped it off.

unequal-tier-cake

Unequal Tiers

A tall middle tier is a fun new take on the traditional white buttercream-frosted wedding cake. Chocolate brown ribbon trim and an oversized, white sugar-made flower finish it off.

red-rose-cake

Red Roses Mini Cake

A full tier covered in red roses helped this little cake (hey, it only needed to serve 53 people!) make a big statement. For some vintage flair, the couple used the same topper the bride’s grandparents and parents used.

sugar-fresh-flowers-cake

Sugar and Fresh Flowers

Small sugar flowers line the top and bottom of each and every wedding cake tier. Dark plum-colored dahlias and ranunculus add a dramatic touch.
