POTTED PLANT WEDDING CAKEContributing editor Jason Schreiber made this herb-adorned cake, which features micro marigolds, fennel and cilantro flowers, bachelor's buttons, sweet alyssums, oregano, and pea shoots. Swiss meringue buttercream's tacky texture kept the edible blossoms (purchase your own at gourmetsweetbotanicals.com) in place.
ART DECO WEDDING CAKEThe layouts on this particular cake hark back to another time—when sandals were music was for dancing, and jewelry took a jump into the near future. But you do not need to know your Art Deco to admire its style that is geometric. Covered in piped dots of frosting buttercream, and cut-fondant plaques with sanding sugar coated, it is just plain pretty, regardless of the method that you slice it.
ROSE-PIPED WEDDING CAKEThis joyful rose confection may look couture, but just about anyone is really capable of recreating it. Begin with a basic fondant cake from a bakery. Next, print out our template of abstract roses, area parchment paper over it, and outline having a piping bag of royal icing. Once dry, peel the paper in the piped roses, and stick the layouts to the cake using glue paste that's been combined with water that is hot.
WHITE ROSE WEDDING CAKEThe standing as nature's most authoritative love symbol of this bloom comes in the Greeks, who used the flower to symbolize the goddess Venus. White roses, especially, have come to symbolize purity, unity, and love that was true —as opposed to red roses' organization with fire—which has earned them the status of Ultimate Wedding Flower. Here, New York City cake guru Sylvia Weinstock blanketed three layers of cake in handcrafted, edible sugar petals to gently hark back to the form of a French croquembouche—and produce a temple to Cupid's favourite flower.
TEARDROP WEDDING CAKEGive your cake a dab of whimsy. Purchase up a fondant cake, plus a pail of fondant, from a bakery. Add roll out into a thin sheet, and food coloring to the fondant to get the right colors. Cut with various teardrop-shaped cookie cutters (these are by Ateco, from Sur La Table), let dry, and attach to the front of the cake with gum paste blended with hot water.
DUTCH GOLDEN AGE WEDDING CAKEInspired by the hyper- naturalistic botanic still-life paintings of Dutch artist Rachel Ruysch, circa 1685 to 1750, more than one guest is going to do a double take at the sight of this cake, which looks like a verdant floral centerpiece. Custom made sugar flowers, created by Amy DeGiulio of Sugar Flower Cake Shop in New York City, were planted in a bed of chocolate-fondant-covered cake, that has been place in a gold urn that is big. Fill the cake's layers with rosewater buttercream to call out the flowering adornments of it's.
A WEDDING CAKE WITH DISTINCT STRIPESHere, we put the idea of icing on ice, relying instead on unadorned pastel layers for graphical appeal. Coconut pound cake, tinted with gel-paste food coloring, functions as the base, while white fondant and passion fruit curd rests on top (the curd can also be between each layer).
JAPANESE SPONGE WEDDING CAKEThese little beauties by Wendy Kromer-Schell and Caitlin Brown (known as individual sponge roulades) were inspired by Japan's popular patterned cake rolls. The fill is lemon-ginger mousse, along with the layouts can be customized (wedding crest or monogram, anyone?).
SPRING WEDDING CAKESpringerle molds are what make this cake (an orange-chiffon confection full of mascarpone) fantastic. Even though the exceptional purple tint and springtime characters (bunnies, birds, and flowers) aren't too shabby, either.
CRUSHED-CANDY WEDDING CAKEAs fun as it will be to eat to make, our dazzling marmalade-sweet cake takes a small muscle—and that's about it. Then press on the crushed pieces that are glittering to the sides of a buttercream cake.
FRENCH AND IKAT SILK RIBBON WEDDING CAKEThe spirit of a century-old French silk ribbon might be felt in every bite of this dear cake. On top rests a spectacular bow of molded glue paste (so realistic, you will be tempted to untie it). Afterward we painted mixed with lemon extract onto the fondant in a rose pattern that evokes the blurry quality of an ikat weave to edible luster dust.
HEART WEDDING CAKELong ago, the heart was considered to function as origin of all human emotions. Though modern science shows otherwise, the phrase "giving your heart" continues to be the best measure to express that you simply had sacrifice anything for the one you adore. Jay Qualls of the Tennessee-based Maples Wedding Cakes printed our designs on paper, covered them in parchment, outlined them with royal icing, then transferred them.
EMBROIDERED LACE AND APPLIQUED WEDDING CAKETo evoke a trendy '60s dress crafted of embroidered lace blanketed with cotton floral appliques, cake designer Ron Ben-Israel created silicone moulds of appliques inspired by the first fabric—no small task considering there were 25 contours to repeat, including dahlias, roses, and periwinkles. Sugar paste was pressed into each mold, then applied in layers to the fondant. The ensuing ivory tower is one that both generations— your mom's and yours —will adore.
