From left to right:
The Blushing Bride: Giant dahlias, chosen by the Rolling Pin Bake Shop for their whimsical nature, take center stage on this blush-colored cake. With made-from-scratch buttercream frosting and accented with a satin ribbon, this work of art is sure to delight. The Rolling Pin Bake Shop, Fitchburg, 608.270.9611
Flowers and Frills: With large gumpaste flowers cascading down the front and ruffled buttercream frosting, this three-tiered confection from Craig’s Cake Shop showcases the shabby chic trend so many couples are loving this season. The white-on-white palette is simple yet elegant, a perfect fit for any bride’s dream day. Craig’s Cake Shop, Verona, 608.848.6331
Bigger is Better: This beauty boasts an impressive exterior, with a giant array of pink, pearl-dusted sugarpaste petals and a row of crystals at its base—but it’s what’s inside that counts. Creative Confections’ Alicia Russell recommends a white chocolate liqueur cake filled with strawberry mousse. Creative Confections, Brooklyn, 608.455.1448
Lovely in Lace: For this four-tiered fondant creation, Betty Arp of “I Do” Cakes by Betty was inspired by the lace she’s been seeing on bride’s gowns. Lacelike flower appliqués adorn the first and third tiers, while 3-D sugar flowers and a Mr. and Mrs. topper crown this one-of-a-kind cake. “I Do” Cakes by Betty, Arlington, 608.846.5186
