Beautiful wedding cakes

So I’m reading the news on MSNBC, and stumbled upon The 50 Most Beautiful Wedding Cakes from coast-to-coast. I think they forgot the word “pricey” somewhere in the title because I don’t know anyone who spent 4 figures on their wedding cake, which clearly some of these are. Then again, sometimes price is not an issue for the “big day”. 🙂

These two are mega-cute:



Confetti Cakes, New York City
Elisa Strauss credits pop artist Wayne Theibaud, who painted precisely arranged cakes, doughnuts and pies, for her bundt-cake-to-cupcake tiers. Rolled fondant cake with edible pearls and handmade sugar accents.

  3. Wow! Those wedding cakes are amazing. You can really go above and beyond when it comes to just about anything relating to weddings. I would love to have that brown polka dotted upside down cake at my wedding in August!

  4. Beautiful cakes! Love the chocodot cake. It would make a great groom’s cake. I am curious as to what the topper is made out of or would it be possible to get just the topper made and shipped???
