Cakes, Flowers

Jacques Domenge

A rose by any other name might not smell as sweet, but these cupcakes definitely are a treat for the eyes and the tongue. Frosted with strawberry icing to resemble roses and placed in a planting pot, this chocolate cupcake arrangement by Paola Domenge of Couture Cupcakes would add an unexpected touch to any garden-themed wedding. "The idea was cute and simple—and the result was stunning," she says.

And for Paula, this arrangement is literally just the icing on the cake. The cupcake designer also adorns her edible treats with everything from fanciful chocolate swirls to girly shoes and purses. Check out all her designs at couture-cupcakes.com. —Kathryn Papanek
