This cake by The Cake Whisperer from the Bright & Bold styled shoot we featured is rocking so many elements that are trending right now ā€” swooshy buttercream, watercolor and gold flecks. And the tiny rosettes paired with oversize sugar flowers? Obsessed. | Photo by Laura Kelly Photography


Emily and Adrian had a cake. Made of cheese. ‘Nuff said. | Cheesemongering by Saxelby's, cake by Henry's at the Farm, photo by Sarah Tew Photography


The cake design looks as if it was pulled straight from a grandmotherā€™s jewelry box. We love the idea of incorporating a similar design using your own family heirloom! | cake design by Too Nice to Slice, photo by Jess Collins Wedding Photography
