Savory & Sweet Catering, Sunnyvale, CA
This "sparkling" cake was an experiment for Leanne Pomellitto, CEO of Savory & Sweet. The bride requested real fireworks, but wasn't willing to invest in the taller sparklers. This particular photo required about seven takes!
Sweetish Hill Bakery, Austin, TX
At Sweetish Hill, head wedding cake designer Leila Valenzuela knows what side of the fondant debate she stands on...she never uses it.
This chocolate Daisy Cake is filled and iced with cream cheese icing, and the borders were piped with a #10 tip. The flowers, cut from gum paste using a Wilton daisy cutter, were formed in egg crates that had been lined with foil. To give the daisies' centers texture, she rolled yellow gum paste in corn meal.
One of Valenzuela's favorite creations, this cupcake tree was based on an abstract flower that was custom designed by the maid of honor for the wedding invitation. Valenzuela free-handed the design with a #3 tip. Each cupcake has a portion of the flower on it, but no two cupcakes look alike.
Cheri's Bakery, Wichita, KS
It seems fondant hasn't completely taken over wedding cakes. For this cake done in popular "Tiffany blue," Cheri Kovacic used buttercream base and details, along with silk lilies. Take note of the matching cookies at the base. Kovacic also has a side-gig creating upscale cookie designs. Check out her new site at www.cheriscookies.com.
