No celebration would be complete without a tasty, celebratory treat, and in 2017, couples were after a dessert that wasn’t just sweet, but also stunning! From decadent drip cakes and floral adorned tiers to intricate hand painted detailing, the design of this year’s cakes soared to new heights. Out of all the amazing confections we’ve featured, both big and small, it was hard to narrow it down, but here are 15 of our favorite wedding cakes from this year.
