WHITE-CHOCOLATE PANELED WEDDING CAKEArchitectural yet familiar, our white-chocolate panel cake requires neither culinary talents nor design abilities (besides the ones you learned in preschool). Simply order a buttercream cake from a pack of chocolate panels from chocolatier Christopher Norman along with a nearby bakery. The remainder is a cakewalk: Adhere panels of varying heights onto the tiers, and fill the ledges with golden raspberries or a different fruit.
POTTED PLANT WEDDING CAKEContributing editor Jason Schreiber made this herb-adorned cake, which features oregano, fennel and cilantro blossoms, bachelor's buttons, sweet alyssums, pea shoots, and micro marigolds. Swiss meringue buttercream's tacky texture kept the edible blossoms (purchase your own at gourmetsweetbotanicals.com) in place.
CHOCOLATE STOUT WEDDING CAKEEach layer of this chocolate nude cake by Wendy Kromer- Caitlin Brown and Schell drizzled with chocolate and caramel ganache is full of buttercream, and topped with candied pecans. Meanwhile, the actual cake comprises butter, yogurt, and stout (customize yours with your preferred brew), making each bite decadently moist.
SPRING WEDDING CAKESpringerle forms are what make this cake (an orange-chiffon confection full of mascarpone) excellent. Although the unique purple tint and springtime characters (bunnies, birds, and flowers) aren't too shabby, either.
ROSE-PIPED WEDDING CAKEThis happy rose confection may appear couture, but just about anyone is really capable of re-creating it. Focus on a simple fondant cake. Print out our template of roses that are intangible, area parchment paper and outline using a piping bag of royal icing. Once dry, peel the paper from the piped roses, and stick the designs to the cake using glue paste that is been blended with hot water.
RED, WHITE, AND BLUE WEDDING CAKEThis Lafayette Grand Cafe & Bakery fromage blanc cheesecake has six tiers of berry-adorned good. The layers are flavored with lemon zest, vanilla bean, and black pepper, and sit atop an organic cornmeal crust.
WEDDING PETIT FOURSSoaked in honey glaze, and brown sugar, butter, these geometric minis by Wendy Kromer - Caitlin and Schell Brown resemble honeycombs. We topped them off with whipped cream and a helping of candied kumquats.
OMBRE WEDDING CAKEWendy Kromer- Schell and Caitlin Brown hid blood orange and passion-fruit curds in tinted vanilla poundcake because of this buttercream-dotted confection. Bake yours a bit bigger than desirable so that browned edges can be trimmed off, revealing the lively ombre layout underneath.
MINIATURE CHOCOLATE-COVERED WEDDING CAKESFancy: Yes. Fussy: Not in the least. (Perch the cakes on a wire rack so excessive glaze doesn't pool.) Then we lightly pulled a toothpick through the lines to generate the designs.
JAPANESE SPONGE WEDDING CAKEThe fill is lemon-ginger mousse, and also the designs can be customized (wedding crest or monogram, anyone?).
HEART WEDDING CAKEThe heart was thought to be the origin of most human emotions. Though modern science shows otherwise, the phrase "giving your heart" remains the best method to express that you simply had give anything for the one you love. Jay Qualls of the Tennessee-based Maples Wedding Cakes printed our designs covered them traced them with royal icing, then transferred them onto fondant.
FRENCH AND IKAT SILK RIBBON WEDDING CAKEThe spirit of a century-old French silk ribbon can be felt in every bite of this beloved cake. On top rests a spectacular bow of molded glue paste (so realistic, you will be enticed to untie it). Then we painted blended with lemon extract onto the fondant in a rose design that evokes the blurry quality of an ikat weave to edible luster dust.
DUTCH GOLDEN AGE WEDDING CAKEInspired by the hyper- botanic that is realistic 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 the cake, which looks like a verdant floral centerpiece. Custom made sugar flowers, created by Amy DeGiulio of Sugar Flower Cake Shop in New York, were planted in a bed of chocolate-fondant-covered cake, that has been set in a gold urn that is big. Fill the cake's layers with rosewater buttercream to call it's flowering adornments out.
A WEDDING CAKE WITH DISTINCT STRIPESHere, we place the idea of icing on ice, relying rather on unadorned pastel layers for graphic appeal. Coconut pound cake, tinted with gel-paste food coloring, functions as the base, while white fondant and passionfruit curd rests on top (the curd can be between each layer).
