Beautiful Wedding Cake Trends
I have to admit I'm a sucker for a pretty wedding cake.
In the world of wedding cakes, it's not just cut and dry anymore -- you've got fondant, Italian buttercream icing, ombre frosting, elaborate spun sugar toppers…and I'm running out of breath! I've pulled a few of my favorites together for you to feast your eyes on.

Sugar paste lilies and orchids top a four-tiered square cake -- my favorite part? The jet-black columns that section off each layer of the cake, giving it a modern look. (Made by Custom Cakes in Savannah, GA)
