1. Couture Adornments
Sweet Retreat
Sweet Retreat’s designers drew their inspiration from lacy, ethereal fabrics—the kind you might find on a wedding gown. The rich buttercream—all butter, no shortening—ripples into an array of textures; made of the thinnest rolled fondant and a touch of gum paste, the silky ribbon delicately ties the tiers together.

2. In Full Bloom
Thirsty Whale Bakery
Custom-designed by Thirsty Whale Bakery, this cheery confection pushes the boundaries of traditional wedding design with contemporary garden accents. Flourishes of rice-paper leaves and petals are hand-cut and carefully placed to cascade whimsically down the tiers.

3. With This Ring
Nadia Cakes
Traditional meets modern in this stylish Nadia Cakes creation. Touches of petal dust add a whisper of color and depth, as creamy flowers of marshmallow-based fondant highlight the simplicity of this elegant masterpiece. A hexagonal tier adds a modern note, with a gold hoop for infinite love and unity—what better symbol to celebrate a marriage?

4. Shape Shifter
Cocoa & Fig
Precision geometrics add pop to this Cocoa & Fig three-tier charmer. A 3-D triangle pattern in the middle packs major wow-factor, accompanied by an intricate flower accent and shimmery-smooth frosting for subtle contrast.

5. Garden Party
D’Amico Catering
Whether your wedding is classic or cutting-edge, this timeless cake by D’Amico Catering fits any celebration. The exquisite floral design will draw guests seeking a closer look: Petals are layered using an overlapping stencil technique, adding romance without heavy frosting. The result? White-on-white that’s chic, not shy.
